Our experts will provide you with a range of services, including consulting, technology services, through our Colliers360 platform, lease administration, transaction management, project management and facilities management. We can help you navigate all types of change, including organisational design or ‘charter’ of your internal corporate real estate function, explosive organic business growth, mergers and acquisitions, consolidation, geographic and talent strategy shifts, brand transformation and aggressive cost reduction.
Our experts can create, support and execute strategies that align with your business objectives. To manage your portfolio, we bring together teams with specialised expertise based on your needs - whether that includes workplace strategy and change management, supply chain and logistics network optimisation, distribution centres, data centres, retail stores or healthcare facilities. We can leverage your existing approach to execute transactions and projects consistently and with agility, or we can re-engineer transaction and project processes to improve efficiency. In addition, we uncover savings and cost avoidance strategies through our lease administration services - using your existing technology, our platform or other tools - while accurately managing your database of leases, auditing expenses and even outsourcing the rent payment process.
We know that each client has a unique situation. We have experience reducing costs and creating value in many different ways. Some businesses benefit from reducing the number of locations and the amount of space occupied or shifting locations around the corner or across the globe as a part of a workforce/talent strategy. Others create value by deploying negotiating strategies to take advantage of the market environment and other conditions, or leveraging buying power across your expenses (rent) and capital (fit-out) spend. Still others can reduce costs by recovering expense overcharges, or balancing traditional leased space needs with new opportunities that offer maximum flexibility, such as co-working and serviced office facilities. And we save some clients money through the benefits of outsourcing, offering variable resources and scalability instead of their current fixed cost model.
We typically measure how much value we have added relative to our fees, and in many cases that can be substantial. We aim for our clients to realise the benefits of technology, regardless of whether that is through Colliers technology or other tools and systems. Our Colliers360 technology is built on a non-proprietary platform so clients can control their own destiny. We typically get the first phase up and running within 90 days, and we anticipate and accommodate your changing needs after the initial setup.
