JLL Unveils RED, its Corporate Real Estate Data and Insights Platform

RED will unleash the power of data to help businesses compete in fast-growing Asia


 

SINGAPORE, 4 June, 2015 - JLL is launching RED, corporate real estate's first open and scalable data analytics platform to help businesses uncover insights and reach new levels of productivity in workplaces across Asia and around the world.

As Asia continues to drive global economic growth, multinational and local companies are rapidly expanding their footprint in the region. This means their corporate real estate portfolios are becoming bigger, adding to operational expenses.

RED is a cutting-edge approach that enables businesses to make smarter decisions about real estate, whether they are dealing with post-merger consolidations, regional expansion plans, or making other critical choices.

"We wanted to offer the only industry platform that advances the science of real estate without requiring our clients to make major new technology investments or lengthy enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation," says Jordi Martin, JLL CEO of Corporate Solutions, Asia Pacific.

"As companies expand in Asia, we want to make it easier for our clients to make business-critical decisions based on real data, rather than gut feel."

The RED platform is designed to integrate corporate real estate data with sales, workforce, financial, economic and other data to offer a holistic view of a corporation's business and macroeconomic environment. Its design enables a company to integrate data from almost any source and rapidly visualise the results on dashboards, offering greater visibility and insights to improve operational efficiency.

The technology is tailored specifically for each client and it allows executives to access real-time data in the field on their mobile devices, not just desktop computers.

RED offers a full spectrum of tools to uncover areas for improved productivity with customisable dashboards and detailed analytical models. RED can help with real estate and business decisions such as:

  • Planning post-merger consolidations;
  • Creating cost-benefit analyses for different expansion scenarios, such as relocation versus renovation or expansion. This predictive capability is informed not only by real estate data, but also by labour costs and availability, quality-of-life factors, employee preferences and more;
  • Viewing energy usage trends across portfolios;
  • Analysing lease terms and expiration timetables across multiple markets; and
  • Determining which corporate locations are more productive than others.
