Providing More Access to Brokerage Clients
As of January 23, 2019, Upsuite is proud to announce the Company’s recent partnership with Colliers International, a leading global commercial real estate services firm Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ and TSX: CIGI). As the coworking industry continues to grow, many coworking operators have not found an efficient way to attract qualified teams to their location. Many of these organizations report vacancy rates of greater than 40% and an average tenant turnover of every 18 months. At the same time, commercial real estate brokers are having a hard time finding and comparing the many available coworking locations for their clients. Through the recently announced partnership, Colliers will have access to, and utilize, Upsuite’s platform, inventory data, and service offerings. Colliers professionals will now have the ability to quickly and easily secure the best, and most appropriate, flexible workspaces in their respective markets for clients at competitive prices. The partnership originally stemmed from Upsuite’s success in their recent participation in Colliers Proptech Accelerator, powered by Techstars.
It Began at an Accelerator
This program was born from the idea that advancements in technology and data can enable experts to deliver smarter, more personalized services that help make a difference. “By targeting innovation through the resources of the proptech accelerator program, we are able to create solutions, shape technologies and find opportunities that will advance our business and the industry—our partnership with Upsuite being one of them,” said Gil Borok, Colliers Chief Operating Officer | U.S. Operations. “I look forward to our continued efforts in uncovering and shaping enterprising solutions for the commercial real estate industry, providing a competitive advantage for Colliers’ clients and employees alike.” Upsuite is excited to move forward with the new partnership with the goal of providing access to an even larger audience of entrepreneurs, small to mid-sized businesses, and large corporations. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Colliers to provide added value and services to their clients and professionals,” said Ben Wright, Founder and CEO of Upsuite. “This partnership is a testament to Colliers’ commitment to advancing proptech innovations, as well as their focus on providing best-in-class solutions in the real estate industry.”
