See how a global company turned an opportunity into a competitive advantage with a new custom solution!


We were looking for ways to use technology as an enabler for our brokers…and help them become more efficient and save time. We were very cognisant that any solution…would have to be easy to use. Point Alliance partnered with us to create an end-to-end solution including solution design, application development, wireless deployment, training and ongoing support. They have been a valued business ally

General Manager, IT Operations, Colliers International

Colliers International relied heavily on their corporate property database (SPEX) as an important source of information for their brokers. With the fast-paced market, they required a tool that would allow their brokers immediate access to the database in order to react swiftly to market demands. Since they already had close to 400 BlackBerry® handhelds deployed across the organization, Colliers was looking to leverage their existing investment to deploy a new wireless application.

SPEX for BlackBerry® was created in response to Collier’s needs. Developed as an extension to their existing mobile investment, the solution offered a significant enhancement in productivity as brokers were able to access critical business information while on the go. Further, the tool enabled Collier to offer quicker response to customers, which in turn enhanced customer service. In addition to being extremely user friendly, it also enhanced efficiencies across all channels, allowing Collier to carve out a strong competitive advantage in the real estate market.
