Global network transforms real estate company

Thursday, 10 March, 2011

Colliers International, a worldwide leader in commercial real estate services, will implement a global telecommunications and network infrastructure system from AT&T to help the company complete its multi-year transformation from a network of independent real estate firms into a unified global service company. This will enable Colliers to provide a new level of content, services and applications to its partners and affiliates.

“AT&T had the breadth and depth of service, the expertise and the commitment to deliver the global solution,” said Veresh Sita, Chief Information Officer of Colliers International. “AT&T’s alignment to our enterprising approach to business was paramount throughout the process.”

In the midst of an image and brand transformation, Colliers sought optimisation of resources and global alliances, such as AT&T, to eliminate complexities, drive efficiencies and support Colliers globally. Utilising its unique operating model, deep market expertise and service quality, Colliers required a single telecommunications and network services provider that would allow the company to provide simple, flexible and scalable services to their business units around the world.

By eliminating multiple disparate carriers, a single source provider creates a consistent service platform and facilitates increased network performance and end-user experience. Additionally, redundancies are removed from the IT organisation and infrastructure, and costs are lowered by leveraging economies of scale.

Specifically, AT&T Consulting provided guidance on the tactical aspects of the Colliers transformation with project management and data centre expertise. AT&T Hosting services is allowing Colliers to streamline operations globally, and advanced hosting and cloud services will support significant growth anticipated as a result of their transformation.

As a single source provider of project-based IT work on a global scale, AT&T’s Network Integration group managed migration of services and migration of the customer-owned infrastructure.

Under the terms of the 4-year agreement, AT&T is providing voice, data, consulting and hosting services to seamlessly link 129 Colliers offices located in 13 countries throughout Australia, North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

A global intelligent IP backbone with additional security services with centralised reporting and administrative functions provided the necessary backbone to assist Colliers International and help it keep its IT resources focused on its core competencies and rely on AT&T’s stability and scalability to handle the growing needs of the organisation.
