CBRE has over 100 mobile apps–some public facing–but most are unique to the company internal operations. However, disparate development platforms scattered around the world made it difficult to maximize economies of scale. 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 field agents needed to close real estate deals.


When CBRE application development shifted increasingly to HTML5 and CSS3, the development team conducted a thorough review of the competitive landscape and after an exhaustive research they chose the Telerik Kendo UI® framework.


With the help of Kendo UI, CBRE saw a development time savings of 35%-50% and now have confidence that each app will run flawlessly on whatever device selected: iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, Windows Phone, Mac or Windows desktop.
