CHICAGO, Jan. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transwestern today announces the formation of a dedicated Technology Solutions group to deliver greater value to owners, investors and users of real estate through a nimble, cloud-based platform that will enhance productivity and maximize the power of information. Vice President Jason Moersch has been appointed to lead the seven-person Technology Solutions team, which augments the overall Information Technology department.
“The Technology Solutions group further solidifies Transwestern’s forward-thinking approach to client service, which includes our IT capabilities,” said Chief Administrative Officer Kurt Emshousen. “Under Jason’s leadership, the team will enhance our speed to market and allow us to dedicate significantly more resources to value creation technologies. In that vein, one of our primary initiatives is transitioning the entire IT system to a robust, cloud-based environment.”
Moving all of the company’s IT systems, which span infrastructure, collaboration, financial and human resource systems, network storage and user support in addition to technology solutions, will allow Transwestern to reduce costs, simplify maintenance and resource allocation, and make a smaller environmental impact.
Moersch has 13 years of experience specializing in development, support and system integration for corporate and business-line applications at commercial real estate firms, including DTZ, Cushman & Wakefield and Cassidy Turley, and the professional services firm KPMG.
“I’m very excited to be part of an organization that emphasizes the importance of innovation,” Moersch said. “Technology Solutions is a unique way of approaching application development in our industry and will allow us to evolve at a pace that keeps up with new demands and capitalizes on vast opportunities throughout the real estate lifecycle.”
The spirit of innovation is ingrained in Transwestern’s culture. For example, earlier this year, the company hosted a hackathon in the Chicago market, challenging participants to create new technology solutions to common challenges faced by commercial real estate professionals. Organized by Technology Solutions team member Anthony Katsivalis, the event was nationally recognized as the first of its kind in the industry. As a result of the competition, Transwestern is pursuing a partnership to develop an application that uses dating site algorithms to match a landlord and tenant.
