Colliers International is a leading commercial real estate company in Australia, and the world. As Australia’s own global real estate success story, the Colliers International brand was established in Australia in 1976. Providing a full range of real estate services, we represent property owners, investors, developers and occupiers in local and global markets.
In order to provide a consistent digital user experience globally, Colliers International ANZ requested the services of website, software and integration company OneClick, to lead the design and build of the new websites and implement the custom-built property listing system ‘Our listings’.
Key requirements of the website included:
A fully managed CMS to allow real time updates
Provide sophisticated property search features such as predictive search, show nearby, search by location, number of bedrooms, floorsize etc
Dedicated news and research sections
Integration with Dynamics CRM system and third party feeds
OneClick worked with the Colliers International teams in both Sydney and Auckland to deploy two new websites, colliers.com.au and colliers.co.nz. For Colliers International ANZ, this meant that for the first time, all property listing information would be entered into the company’s CRM system and fed through to the new websites, giving them complete control of property listing data. Previously all property listing information was listed in third party websites.
Key functionality of the website included:
Pinterest style property display with lazy loading features
Secure documents feature
Ability to save properties
Complete integration with internal CRM system
Complete integration with multiple external feeds
Media downloads, brochures, floor plans and embed videos
Internal property listing system
Email marketing system
The result is that Colliers International now has a consistent platform across its operations and a sophisticated content management system that allows for real time updates. Listing properties on the website as opposed to third party websites, allows Colliers to collate and analyse data and to make informed decisions in response.
"We were very impressed with OneClick. Their work for our businesses overseas have been impressive and we have benefitted from their consistent approach to our site here in Australia. In addition, their project management has been exemplary. During the entire project, they kept us informed of what was needed, what was coming up and tracked milestones and reporting" Belinda Scott Colliers Australia
