CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) is one of the world’s premier full-service real estate companies, with 349 offices in 42 countries and over 44,000 employees. As one could imagine, being a huge organization, CBRE has over 100 mobile apps–some public facing, but most are unique for the company’s internal operations in order to make staff more effective and efficient. However, maintaining these apps and the diversity of platforms, systems and devices, they run on can be challenging, at best. After all, to work in synchronicity for a team around the globe is not easy to coordinate and keep advantageous.
The company needed a framework to deliver application portability to a spectrum of devices and operating systems, while at the same time, providing the “wow” factor needed to close real estate deals.
Leveraging Telerik Kendo UI, CBRE has been able to meet and exceed this challenge. Kendo UI allows for the flexibility necessary to not only keep up with the latest devices, but to also ensure usage on older technologies, such as IE 7, goes uninterrupted.
In addition, they’re doing it with great efficiency. CBRE developers use less resources to develop, less resources to test and less resources to keep things consistent for a wide array of machines, browsers and versions. Long Le, Principle App/Dev Architect CBRE, noted that through the use of Telerik Kendo UI, he’s estimated an average savings to 35%-50%.
