Largest Commercial Investment Brokerage and Real Estate Network to Resell ESRI's Enterprise Business Software
Redlands, California — Jun 01, 2009 — Software designed to support brokers, appraisers, and marketers with the analysis they need to do their jobs efficiently and accurately is now offered by ESRI and CCIM Institute as a new GIS solution bundle for commercial real estate and retail markets. CCIM products and services, along with ESRI's ArcGIS Business Analyst Server, are part of this comprehensive offering.
Under this agreement, CCIM Institute will become a reseller of the ArcGIS Business Analyst product suite within the United States. CCIM will bundle the software with its subscription to Site to Do Business Online (STDBonline) ( www.stdbonline.com), a suite of demographic and analysis tools, and other commercial real estate data services. CCIM will also offer its core course education and specialized education curriculum showing clients how to combine their own internal data, specialized financial models, and site evaluation workflows with the best Web-based data analysis and mapping solutions.
CCIM Institute is the leading member network and governing body of the largest commercial investment real estate network in the world. ESRI is the leading provider of geographic information system (GIS) technology. The two companies have been working together to bring innovative solutions to the marketplace.
"CCIM is pleased to continue broadening and deepening our relationship with ESRI," says Charles A. 'Mac' McClure, CCIM Institute 2009 president. "This is the next logical step in providing a complete real estate solution to our members and the commercial real estate community no matter what their specialty or industry focus."
ESRI and CCIM Institute began working together in 2007 when the companies signed an agreement to develop the new mapping interface to STDBonline. This Web-based service drove rapid adoption of GIS with CCIM members and provided intuitive access to demographic, consumer spending, and business data. Earlier this year, CCIM Institute awarded ESRI a 20-year contract to expand this solution and create, manage, and maintain major portions of its property portal.
The partnership has allowed CCIM to expand its member solutions to support extensions to commercial property information, intelligent maps, photographs, and detailed building and financial information. ESRI announced earlier this year a $1 million U.S. grant program for CCIM members, another opportunity for members to learn about and use GIS technology to make better business decisions.
"Embracing CCIM Institute as a reseller of ESRI's ArcGIS Business Analyst Server underscores our commitment to the real estate community. CCIM members are driving the adoption and growth of GIS awareness and use," says Simon Thompson, director of commercial business, ESRI. "This partnership, combined with the grant program, provides access to innovative GIS technology, helping companies address changing market conditions and developing business strategies that position them for success today and improved return on investment tomorrow."
