CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce recently launched a public-facing inventory of commercial availabilities, adopting new technology from a Chicago company to create unprecedented marketing potential for commercial real estate listings.
By integrating an advanced Property Index from BrokerSavant with its website, the Chamber gives commercial listings wider exposure, creates sponsorship opportunities for local and national businesses, and draws the attention of corporate site selectors to the entire Chicago region.
"A community that highlights its commercial real estate listings gets on a site selector's radar screen before communities that don't," explains BrokerSavant Founder and CEO Clay Rankin.
Since its January 1 launch, the Chicagoland Chamber's Property Index has attracted listings for more than 1100 available business sites.
A number of sponsors have also signed on, seizing the opportunity to broadcast messages across the top of the index to business operators across a wide spectrum of industries. The Chamber's website averages nearly 500,000 pageviews annually, and over 66% are new visitors to the site.
"We realize chamber members come in all industries and sizes," says sponsor Alysia Cook, CEO of the professional training company Opportunity Strategies. "And we want to help Chicagoland Chamber members prosper."
Patricia Kanke, Marketing Manager of the Hyatt Regency Chicago, says, "We sponsored the page because, when people come to the area looking to do business, we want to be first in their mind. The Chicagoland Chamber has always been an excellent resource."
Other sponsors include Inland Real Estate Brokerage & Auctions and CrainsRealEstateDaily.com, Rankin describes how his company's Property Index attracts site selectors to the Chicago area. "91% of site selectors rate property information as the most important content on a community's website. The Property Index aggregates all the listings in the area into a searchable, sortable interface, with all the data a site selector needs literally one mouse click away. Built right into the Chamber's website, it reinforces the Chicagoland Chamber brand with every view."
Cook says the Chamber's Property Index is "a really innovative addition. A lot of people will see it, and that creates all kinds of opportunities for exposure."
About the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce: The primary role of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce is to make Chicagoland the most business-friendly region in America, by enhancing members' success through aggressive programs in advocacy, member benefits and services, and actionable information. Serving as "The Voice of Business" since 1904, the Chamber leads aggressive public policy and business growth initiatives and creates meaningful events and programs to inform, engage, and connect members to each other and the community. The Chamber advocates on behalf of the business community at the city, county, and state levels of government, and facilitates hundreds of events and programs each year to inform, engage, and connect our members. The Chicagoland Chamber is also home to the Tri State Alliance for Regional Development, the International Trade Center, the Small Business Development Center, and disabilityworks, each offering a myriad of programs and services to businesses, entrepreneurs, and employees.
About BrokerSavant: BrokerSavant builds tools that help organizations and independent brokers thrive in today's competitive commercial real estate landscape. The company was founded in 2009 by Claiborne (Clay) Rankin with the idea that local commercial brokers need to get their property information online for site selectors without distracting them from their other duties. Fueled by the brightest minds in software development, BrokerSavant pioneered a data aggregator that incorporates artificial intelligence to upload property flyer information online quickly, eliminating manual data entry. Leveraging that cutting-edge technology, BrokerSavant's Property Index allows site selectors to navigate a streamlined, data-rich interface straight from an organization's website. Based in downtown Chicago, BrokerSavant has numerous patents pending for its technology innovation. The company continues to introduce new tools that help municipalities and independent commercial real estate brokers (and the communities they support) succeed.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
