Los Angeles, September 13, 2012 – CBRE Group, Inc. today announced it has again been selected for the prestigious InformationWeek 500. CBRE’s inclusion in the 2012 list marks the sixth consecutive year the Company has been represented in the publication’s annual list which identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology.
A key reason for CBRE’s selection was the development of a fully integrated on-line auction solution, CBRE MarketPlace. While other systems existed to auction commercial properties, none were able to leverage the power of a full-service commercial real estate firm as its backbone. Through CBRE MarketPlace, investors, property owners, and real estate professionals now have one time-saving platform to collaborate and achieve their business goals. The proprietary and innovative service offers online auction capability as well as a single listing search site for all CBRE property and loan sale offerings.
“We work hard to support our professionals with innovative technology to deliver the industry’s best client service. MarketPlace is one example of that commitment,” said Don Goldstein, Chief Information Officer for CBRE.
“The InformationWeek 500 has recognized the most innovative users of business technology for 24 years, and this year’s innovations were particularly impressive,” said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. “What the editors looked for are unconventional approaches—new technologies, new models, new ways of grabbing business opportunities and solving complex business problems with IT.”
