Happy first birthday to the Boston Idea Group! You may be asking, “What is the Boston Idea Group?” At T3, we are constantly trying to find ways to provide value to our clients and help their companies succeed. After talking to a number of clients and friends, we realized that while the tech community in Boston is strong, the connection between those involved in keeping the offices of the technology companies running did not exist.

For global companies, real estate leases and contracts represent a large financial and operating commitment. Additionally, publicly traded companies have very specific financial reporting requirements. Whether you have 10 leases or a global portfolio in the hundreds, data and its analysis around your real estate portfolio is critical in order to effectively manage and scale.

In an era of smaller corporate real estate teams, technology is a critical lever to achieve Smart Growth.
