Kristin Komassa, Team Coordinator and Database Administrator of Colliers International | Wisconsin, the largest full-service commercial and residential real estate firm in Wisconsin, recently sat down to talk with IDC’s Christopher Chute. They talked about Colliers’ use of Smartsheet – notably, about how the tool has helped them improve communication, especially with its mobile workforce, and how usage has grown organically over the past two years and created a culture of accountability and transparency.

The analyst firm published a Buyer’s Guide Case Study on the company’s use and benefits from Smartsheet, entitled “The Role of Cloud and Mobile Collaboration in Commercial Real Estate: Smartsheet Drives Competitive Advantage at Colliers Wisconsin.”

It’s an insightful read, and the best part? The report is free to download here. Check it out, share it with a friend or colleague. Here’s an excerpt:


Using Smartsheet for everything from asset tracking to maintenance work ordering not only increased staff efficiency and reduced internal communication but also demonstrates more transparently the value clients receive from Colliers Wisconsin. When submitting bids for new client acquisition, Colliers Wisconsin now includes a technology section in each proposal, touting its ability to offer live portfolio reporting capabilities and database access as a custom service other competitive bids may not provide.

Since the rollout of Smartsheet across the commercial division, Colliers Wisconsin has landed 3 additional large commercial accounts that added over 150 new properties to the firm's management — new business that can be directly attributed to the firm's new technology- driven competitive advantage.
