OSCRE Announces 2015 Board of Directors

February, 2015 - London, UK – OSCRE International, a corporate member–based organization focused on the development and implementation of global standards for real estate information exchange, today announced this year's Board of Directors, which includes a new chairperson, eight incumbents and five newly elected members.

2015- Are you ready for the big play?

February, 2015 - A new study published by JLL and based on a Forrester Research Survey of nearly 400 corporate real estate executives confirms that corporate real estate (CRE) is rapidly becoming one of the most data–driven corporate functions. Twenty–eight percent of corporate real estate leaders see themselves as "data–centric" today, and this number is set to double to 56 percent over the next three years. Additionally, 58 percent reported they are unsure whether they have the relevant internal skills to drive a data and analytics strategy – are you one of them?

If so, OSCRE can help. While "big data" and "The Internet of Things (IoT)" have increasingly become topics of conversation at real estate conferences and in the trade press recently, it has never been more critical for organizations to implement standards to collect, analyze and transfer data.

It’s what you’ve been waiting for

January, 2015 -The need for an efficient, flexible portfolio information exchange standard has become essential. With the number and complexity of real estate portfolio transactions on the rise in the corporate and investment worlds, the sharing of information during the due diligence assessment and the final portfolio exchange has become extremely difficult for both sellers and buyers. Service providers also struggle to complete the transfer of large accounts in a timely manner as organizations regularly move between suppliers.

Working with leading member companies such as JLL, Real Foundations, Yardi, Trace Solutions, TIAA-CREF, Canada Life, and other organizations, OSCRE has built a new portfolio exchange standard, PIE-X, adopting the best of prior PIE standards and incorporating significant new functionality and value.
