The commercial real estate industry is about 5-10 years behind rest of the internet when it comes to the explosion of internet technologies. The explosion of apps and technologies is just starting. Almost every segment is wide open.
Building Blocks is a SaaS business management + CRM solution for the CRE industry. We just launched and are 1 of 2 companies in a position to become the central data management system or hub for the onslaught of new apps and tools that are starting to be built. The data on the CRM is what most new apps will need and the agents, though they want to use the apps, won’t spend the time reentering data into them. Think Salesforce.com with the app exchange, model.
Question? Isn’t Salesforce.com doing that? There are 2 reasons that the Salesforce.com platform doesn’t fundamentally work for our industry, and that is being borne out in a lack of adoption. We’ve solved these issues and are in a unique position to become the industry leading solution.
