The State of Mobile is Strong at CRE Tech

App usage on mobile devices continues its uphill climb. From 2015 to 2016, Yahoo’s Flurry Analytics saw an overall app usage growth of 11% (as illustrated in graph below) and time spent in apps increased a whopping 69%.

A shift in app usage
But what industry experts are now noticing for the first time is a significant change in type of usage. It seems less time is being spent in personalization apps and games; while business, communication, social and sports app usage topped the chart for growth in time spent. Apps used on a daily basis in the Business and Finance category saw a hefty increase of 43% in time spent.

Analysts attribute this increase to an uptick in mobile activities and a reliance on real time data. At CRE Tech® , we have noticed a similar pattern of increased time spent within TheAnalyst®PRO application.

Time spent within TheAnalyst PRO grows
Analysis generated within TheAnalyst PRO on mobile devices has increased 54% in just the past 6 months--that's a full 11% over the national average for time spent in Business and Finance apps.

The top reports created were Investment Analysis (5- & 10-year), Property Tour and Rating (Sale & Lease) and Comparative Lease Analysis.

Enhancements provide increased capability
As reliance on mobile technology in the commercial real estate industry strengthens, TheAnalyst PRO continues to add functionality. The application was recently enhanced with after-tax and line-item expense capabilities, making the Investment Analysis Report even more extensive.

Minimal required inputs, speed-to-market delivery and premium analysis reports are must-haves for CRE professionals using TheAnalyst PRO on desktops and mobile devices.

Lee & Associates' Allen Buchanan on Using TheAnalyst® PRO for Speed-to-Market Transactions

CRE Tech's Founder & CEO, Todd Kuhlmann, caught up with Allen Buchanan, Principal at Lee & Associates headquarters in Orange, California, earlier this month.

In this video testimonial, Allen shares how
TheAnalyst® PRO helped them sign a $9M investment deal. 

“We started using TheAnalyst® PRO because we were intrigued by its integration with ClientLook. We appreciate the simplicity of TheAnalyst PRO and its ability to produce professional reports in a very short period of time. My associate and I used TheAnalyst PRO to complete a 10-year cash flow in minutes. That report helped us sign a $9M investment deal. As all of you in the business know, speed-to-market is key, and that's why we rely on TheAnalyst PRO.”
