InfoTycoon Selected by Greystar as a Preferred Supplier

InfoTycoon is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Greystar Real Estate Partners as a preferred service provider of due diligence and facilities inspection software. InfoTycoon is an enterprise-class mobile-to-cloud platform that is designed to collect and manage physical asset data throughout each phase of the multifamily asset lifecycle – acquisition, renovation, operation and disposition. The platform allows data to be entered directly into an easy to use iPad application and synced in real-time to a cloud database as inspections are performed.

The standard protocol for most physical inspections of apartment units often includes paper checklists that are manually completed and then keyed into spreadsheets. The protocol can add days to the process and is subject to error during transcription. As the largest manager of apartments in the U.S., Greystar performs thousands of apartment inspections each year for due diligence, renovations and preventative maintenance. Greystar recently piloted InfoTycoon’s software on a large portfolio of assets under due diligence. Using InfoTycoon’s mobile digital iPad on the front-end, Greystar was able to perform its work more efficiently, using fewer resources, and had real-time access to information empowering the company to make informed decisions more quickly.

“The team at InfoTycoon has a deep understanding of the simplicity and flexibility required to operate, acquire and manage assets,” said Greystar Chief Information Officer Tom Bumpass. “The platform is so fast and customizable that we were able to perform due diligence in the United Kingdom -- a new market with unique challenges -- inspecting 3,500 units in 8 cities in just over two weeks.”

Greystar plans to expand its use of InfoTycoon, fully utilizing the software throughout the lifecycles of its properties from acquisition, renovation and operation to disposition.

“Greystar is a leading innovator in the multifamily housing sector, and we are delighted to be working with them,” said InfoTycoon CEO James Davis. “We are looking forward to a long relationship with Greystar that will strengthen InfoTycoon’s platform for actionable business intelligence throughout the entire asset lifecycle.”

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle?
