The client is a leading Real Estate and Finance Group with over 45 years of experience. The client provides solutions for leasing, property management, land development, commercial real estate brokerage, acquisition, commercial lending and other areas of real estate.
The client constitutes a group of companies that collectively work together on a common goal of providing the best services in the real estate domain. Each company in the group follows similar set of principles but caters to a different section of the real estate domain.
But, to reach this goal each entity in the group follows its own processes and systems. For example, the entity working on the commercial real estate domain would prefer to use JD Edwards, the residential oriented entity would use Yardi, and many entities would even prefer to use Excel or some old legacy systems.
To view a consolidated view of the group, the top management would get a consolidated report after nearly a month’s time. The Top management used this already stale data to take decisions. The top management would get a consolidated feedback on its decisions in around a quarter years time from the constituent entities. These time cycles created problems in getting a consistent view of the company.
