The real estate industry is experiencing a period of unprecedented change. To remain competitive in light of new economic and technological market forces, companies are finding it necessary to develop an information management framework. This framework refers to a comprehensive schema for managing the activities related to the planning, creation/collection, organization, use, accessibility, dissemination, storage, protection and disposition of information. In response to the need for rapid decision-making, improved performance, and a focus on the bottom line, new technologies have emerged to facilitate innovative and superior techniques for building this framework. Unfortunately, the benefits from these new technologies are not achieved without sacrifice and determination. With these new technologies come new complexities and new choices.
WorldSolve's Real Estate Industry Practice delivers services and expertise designed to help real estate clients navigate the growing complexities of the information technology landscape. We have developed specific service offerings that are staffed with professionals who bring intense industry knowledge to each engagement, regardless of size or scope.

Workflow Management In the past several years, leading real estate companies have begun to recognize the value that can be achieved through the automation of complicated business processes. Many new products have been introduced to capitalize on the opportunities in this area. Selecting the right workflow technology and achieving the desired level of automation can be difficult. In addition, maintaining the necessary business process checks and balances to ensure that new automation is controlled makes workflow design and implementation even more challenging. Our professionals have worked with customers to select, implement and integrate workflow management systems to enable business functions ranging from the end-to-end lease processing to the accounts payable invoice receipt, imaging, coding, approval, and payment process. WorldSolve has the experience to help its customers select the right technology and automate processes to achieve the desired business outcomes.
Enterprise Reporting Reporting is critical for real estate companies to constantly monitor and present information to their partners, investors, customers, employees, and vendors. For many reasons, accurate and timely reporting has historically presented significant challenges to real estate companies. The presence of disparate systems, inconsistent data management procedures, and unique reporting demands has contributed to these challenges. Customers benefit from our enterprise reporting services due to our knowledge of both technology and real estate operations. By establishing the required reporting foundation and utilizing the appropriate tools, WorldSolve can help customers transform data into valuable business information that is easily accessible both internally and externally.
