BLUE SPRINGS, MO—Xceligent, Inc. has just taken another big step as it continues building an alternative site for leasing and sales information. The MO-based commercial real estate data provider has made a deal with ViewTheSpace, Inc., a video marketing and leasing analytics platform in commercial real estate, to bring high quality video content to subscribers of Xceligent’s comprehensive research platform, CDX. The videos are embedded on the Xceligent property pages and available to all CDX subscribers.
“We are excited about our relationship with VTS and believe this will be the first of many opportunities to work together to develop unique and proprietary information,” says Doug Curry, chief executive officer of Xceligent. “With Xceligent’s market leading and industry partnered research approach, we believe the partnership with VTS can be a win-win for driving value to our shared customers and the CRE community overall.”
Users can access video content from New York-based VTS in more than 40 markets throughout the US and as the company adds new video content, the partners will make it available within the Xceligent CDX Platform. Furthermore, VTS videos will also be available within Xceligent’s online national marketplace, CommercialSearch.com later this year.
“Since our inception we’ve accumulated almost 400,000 commercial lease and sale listings,” Xceligent’s chief product officer Michael Griffin told GlobeSt.com last week. “The number of property detail hits exceeded 1.1 million over the last 30 days and is growing at double digit monthly rates. Our growth in site traffic and content is a clear indication that the industry is eager for a property marketing alternative, and that CommercialSearch is effective in driving business success for its users.”
The VTA deal is certainly not the first major partnership successfully formed by Xceligent. The company provides commercial real estate information exclusively to members of the National Association of REALTORS® through the REALTOR Benefits® Program. And as reported in GlobeSt.com last year, the company signed multiyear deals with CBRE Group Inc., Colliers International, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank and JLL that gives these national giants access to the Xceligent platform in all existing and future US markets. In addition, officials from these firms take part in local advisory boards and certify the data they have fed into Xceligent’s system.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Xceligent, as it is a true win-win for our clients and Xceligent subscribers,” says Nick Romito, CEO of VTS. “We look forward to a long-term relationship with Xceligent that leverages our respective strengths and increases value for our respective customers.”
