Innovative platform enables Colliers’ brokers to accelerate success, enhance reach and elevate transparency on behalf of clients
Carlsbad CA— Colliers | U.S. has partnered with RCM LightBox to launch SalesTracker, a comprehensive, technology-based initiative that enables Colliers’ clients and brokers to be more efficient in their execution of buying and selling commercial real estate.
SalesTracker leverages and combines the full suite of RCM LightBox seller solutions to accelerate the transaction process, enhance client reporting and facilitate the gathering and distribution of local and national market intelligence to guide critical decision making. Since 1999 the RCM LightBox platform has helped bring more than $2.5 trillion in property investments to market through managed bid and auction sales.
“We view SalesTracker as a critical tool that further strengthens our performance and elevates the results we can achieve for our clients,” said David Amsterdam, President, Capital Markets and Northeast Region, Colliers | U.S. “SalesTracker heightens our speed to market capabilities and allows us, through the help of RCM LightBox, to deliver even more insightful reports and deeper intelligence.”
SalesTracker will provide Colliers’ brokers and clients—REITs, regional and national investment and management firms as well as private, entrepreneurial and institutional investors—with the tools they need to better manage the transaction process, from property marketing to due diligence to closing. The seller solutions that are available through SalesTracker include Property Websites, Email Campaigns, Virtual Deal Rooms, access to more qualified Buyers, and Online Auctions. A key feature of SalesTracker is having one central location for comprehensive listing and sales data.
“The launching of SalesTracker comes at a time when Colliers’ brokers and their clients are looking to position themselves for when the markets begin their return to a sense of normalcy and pent up demand drives increasing levels of activity,” said Steve Shanahan, General Manager, CRE Broker Solutions, RCM LightBox. “Colliers and its clients will benefit from speed to market capabilities, unified workflows and the ability to tap into a database of more than 140,000 qualified investors and brokers to market properties.”
With SalesTracker, Colliers’ teams will get access to new custom marketing templates. These modern, updated marketing templates enable brokers to showcase their listings while ensuring consistent, company-wide branding. Marketing efficiencies such as this combined with the increased exposure, accelerated closing timelines and enhanced market intelligence further promote the success of both Colliers’ brokers and clients.
