NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VTS, the commercial real estate industry’s leading leasing and asset management platform, was chosen as the first place winner in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Marketing at the fifth annual CREtech Real Estate Tech Awards (#RETAS), presented by CREtech (cretech.com). The #RETAS recognize the most innovative and cutting-edge companies that have played an integral role in advancing tech in the real estate industry.
VTS was selected due to its ability to transform leasing and asset management for a commercial landlord by eliminating painful manual processes, leveraging real-time deal and portfolio analytics, and nurturing tenant relationships — all in one platform. VTS customers close deals 41% faster in the first year with VTS and double their deal conversion rates (from inquiry to lease). The platform is used by more than 34,000 users in 35 countries.
The leading venture capitalists, angel investors, and corporate investors in the commercial real estate tech industry served as judges to determine the 2018 #RETAS winners. VTS was awarded on stage in front of nearly 1,000 professionals at the CREtech New York Venture Conference on December 6. The awards were open to any startup or technology company servicing the CRE industry and were designed to determine the 2018 leaders in the commercial real estate technology sector in a variety of categories.
“We are honored to have been recognized by CREtech as the #1 CRM for commercial real estate,” said Nick Romito, CEO and Co-founder at VTS. “VTS has a long history of working in true partnership with our users to create solutions that address very real challenges and transform their day-to-day lives.”
This win comes on the heels of VTS being named as one of Crain’s New York Business’s Best Places to Work, which recognizes companies that have shown a commitment to creating a supportive, collegial and empowering workplace, and VTS’ recent announcement of the VTS marketplace, the only end-to-end commercial real estate marketplace powered by more than nine billion square feet of real-time data.
