Helping CBRE’s Brokers Make Better Decisions Faster

A platform that simplifies one of the most difficult decisions in commercial real estate.
CBRE is the largest commercial real estate services and investment firm in the world. We partnered with their innovation team to create CALC, a web app that helps commercial real estate brokers and their clients compare traditional vs flexible leasing. The application, powered by complex algorithms, quickly gained wide adoption throughout the company as a fast and easy way for brokers and their clients to make smarter, more informed decisions.
Internal tool so effective it was marketed and leveraged for external use.

A Right-sized Server Solution

We chose to utilise the AWS Lambda functions to get the computing power and speed needed to run large calculations efficiently. This solution allowed CBRE to reduce costs by only paying for resources as needed, as opposed to a traditional server infrastructure.
Extensive user testing to increase the usability of the platform for higher adoption and retention.
