L&B Realty Advisors takes advantage of enhanced user experience and navigation.
Dallas, TX- April 25, 2005- Realm Business Solutions today announced the availability of CTI 8.0, the property management system offering the deepest, most comprehensive functionality marketed to the Commercial Real Estate industry. This latest version of CTI boasts a new web-based user interface and a host of features designed to maximize user speed and efficiency.
"We already know CTI delivers on our core operational needs," commented John Gerdes, VP, Asset Management for L&B Realty Advisors, an early adopter of version 8.0. "But the additional improvements provide a more efficient interface that increases our productivity. Another improvement CTI 8.0 provides is that new CTI users are able to acclimate to the application faster and easier than ever."
Some of the enhancements highlighted in CTI 8.0 include the new Fast-4 Navigation(, which gives users greater flexibility in navigating between tasks and screens within the system, continuously improving their productivity. Other new features make quick work of the most complex tasks, such as lease entry. The new Lease Wizard is estimated to cut the time of entering a new lease by 30%, while improving overall accuracy.
Additionally, users are no longer hindered with manually switching between multiple applications to access documents and images. CTI 8.0 takes advantage of a single-click interface to other Realm products, as well as third party systems, to connect directly to external documents, such as an image from a document management system.
"CTI has always been lauded for its rich functionality," noted Michael Tuer, Vice President of Commercial Solutions for Realm. "Now this same industry-leading functionality is easier to use and deploy in version 8.0, leveraging more than 25 years of refinement and expertise and with a cost of ownership that's affordable for mid-sized companies."
To address the needs of real estate firms of all sizes, Realm is offering CTI 8.0 through its turnkey Realm data center, a SAS70-audited application hosting environment. With ASP hosting, clients don't need a large team of dedicated IT resources to deploy and maintain a full-scale enterprise strength system. With a lower cost of entry, even smaller organizations can fulfill the hardware, security, system monitoring, and disaster-recovery requirements of a world-class property management system.
