NEW YORK CITY (April 19, 2016) — Hightower, the leading leasing management platform for the commercial real estate industry, today announced a data integration with CompStak®. The partnership will enable brokers and owners instant access to CompStak’s commercial lease comp information within the Hightower platform.

We believe this partnership will provide immense value for our customers by enabling Hightower to deliver real-time competitive set benchmarking and market analytics exactly where our customers need it, in their leasing management platform.”

The integration demonstrates how two leading CRE tech companies can partner to unlock a powerful new scenario for their customers.

“As we’ve gotten to know Hightower, we’ve seen how critical the leasing management platform is to the daily workflow or leasing teams and asset managers,” said Michael Mandel, CEO of CompStak.  “Leasing management and real time market data go hand-in-hand, and we’re thrilled to work with Hightower to provide an end to end solution for our customers. Partnerships with industry leaders allow CompStak to magnify the power of our data and broaden our reach in the industry - it’s truly a win-win.”

Customers are excited about the partnership news as well. “Hightower and CompStak are both revolutionizing the world of commercial real estate,” said Sara Shank, Head of Portfolio Management at Beacon Capital Partners. “Being able to see competitive benchmarks within my leasing management platform just makes sense. We’ll now be able to make even more confident leasing decisions.”
