Industry Segments >
Retail real estate organizations have historically focused their internal capital on implementing solutions for core accounting and back-end operations. These solutions have been considered the price of entry as an operating company. Over the last several years, as companies have completed core accounting projects, the focus has shifted to improving the income generating side of the business. This means managing and leveraging enterprise relationships with tenants while streamlining the leasing process. This shift to the revenue side of the organization is rapidly becoming a key focal point for retail real estate companies.
In a competitive leasing environment, companies struggle to execute deals faster and leverage established tenant relationships within their existing portfolios. At the same time, greater access to capital and market consolidation are fueling geographic expansion while forcing decentralized operating model choices. Decentralized operating models with remote offices are adding pressure and creating enterprise risk. These pressures are being felt at the people, process, and technology levels of the business and must be addressed to effectively manage growth.
RealFoundations not only understands these pressures but has helped many retail real estate companies implement operating models and processes that will sustain exponential portfolio growth without adding exponential business risk. RealFoundations recognizes that technology itself is only an enabler of good business processes and a sound operating model.
