CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Truss announced its new platform that will help startups and small and medium-sized business (SMBs) find their office space. The Truss platform streamlines the whole process so companies can go from search to lease with ease.
“Rent is a huge expense for small businesses so it’s important to simplify the task of finding the right property,” said Aksh Gupta, Founder and CEO for Occasion. “Truss allows us to define our criteria and see several office spaces that fit our needs. I can’t imagine an easier or faster process than what Truss offers.”
Truss’s smart technology makes a complex business transaction very simple and transparent. Its robust web and mobile platform educates tenants with the knowledge needed to make an informed office space decision. Also, human interaction is available to assist at any point throughout the process.
Truss’s key features include:
- Enhanced Property Listings: The new platform supports 3D virtual tours, allowing prospective renters to explore properties as if they have physically stepped foot inside the space itself. Truss also provides dimensioned floor plans and property brochure PDFs, which include information about nearby retail and dining options, as well as parking availability.
- Vera ChatBot: Tenants are able to connect with Vera throughout the office search process. Vera gathers tenant requirements and provides tenants with simple, jargon-free information such as the number of people the office space can fit and all-in monthly rent costs across all lease types.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) Search: Truss uses a machine learning algorithm that provides tenants with a list of spaces that best fits their needs. The search results receive a confidence rating from zero to 100 percent, with an explanation of the rating. Tenants can quickly decide which spaces should be on their shortlist.
Through Truss, tenants can easily request to tour a property without the fury of phone calls, texts or emails. A Truss Experience Team member meets the tenant on site to provide a tour, answer questions and ensure the visit goes as smoothly as possible. The Truss Experience Team Member includes a comprehensive summary of the spaces in a format that tenants can easily view and share with colleagues after the visit.
Truss enables tenants to easily negotiate and initiate the lease proposal. The Truss team reviews each lease proposal submitted by the landlord from a business perspective to make sure that the agreed upon lease terms are accurately reflected in the proposed lease before the tenant submits it for legal review. One finalized, tenants can easily and safely execute the negotiated lease documents on the platform.
“Historically, startups and small businesses were neglected in the commercial real estate industry,” said Bobby Goodman, Truss Co-Founder. “We provide a solution for that underserved segment by helping them find a space in a very cost effective way. We look forward to helping more and more businesses with their office space search.”
