You Should be Performing Portfolio Analysis with Occupancy Data

Analyze space usage - including headcount data - and prioritize actions.

A common challenge for real estate teams is to find opportunities for cost savings in their portfolio. To do so, you need to understand the usage of each location. As well as an evaluation of the effectiveness of space utilization.

For lease administrators, compiling data points is usually a tedious manual process. Data points include critical lease dates, current expenses, occupancy and comparable market data. Various departments and data silos routinely hold such information. Or you must acquire it from third-party sources.

Commercial real estate teams end up spending way more time on the process of data gathering. Instead, they could quickly be able to analyze to make the most informed recommendations.
