CRE Market Sizing and 5Q’s Client-Centric Approach
Commercial real estate is a massive industry (approximately the size of the $15 trillion US stock market), yet it faces a host of trials in order to continue growing. A primary challenge relates to finding ways to promote efficiency throughout the industry by embracing technological innovation and smart operations. A part of its core services, 5Q Partners will focus on strategic technology leadership, operations, consulting solutions and a proprietary offering called 5Q:IQ – designed to measure the efficiency, compliance, and capabilities of an organization’s technology environment, which is guided by the company’s S.M.A.R.T Cycle Methodology. This practice takes a holistic approach to dig deep into the legacy systems used within the CRE industry to support, measure, assess, create a roadmap and ultimately transform an organization’s approach to technology.
The firm’s name is a nod to the fictitious “fifth quarter” at sporting events where the founding partners spent hours talking about their work as technology professionals with a shared goal of helping industry leaders better utilize and adopt technology for business growth. Company founders Rob Schmidt, Trey Eiland, Gregg Dickson and John Costopoulos bring a combined 100 years of experience and decades of industry-specific business processes and technology solutions for the company’s key markets.
