Newmark Knight Frank Earns a Spot on 2010 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators Across America

Firm’s IRP Initiative Garners Recognition for Innovation in IT

New York, NY (09/15/2010)

Newmark Knight Frank today announced that it made this year's InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. The 2010 list was revealed last night at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference taking place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, Calif.

This year, the firm was recognized for the development of its Integrated Reporting Platform (IRP). The IRP provides a simultaneous, consolidated view of the information maintained across the firm's numerous existing financial, sales and business development applications, and is accessible to all employees.

"With Newmark Knight Frank's dynamic environment and continual growth, accessing and viewing the right information at the right time is crucial," states Newmark Knight Frank CEO Barry M. Gosin. "The IRP initiative has been able to improve productivity significantly, and already the requirements and functionality of IRP have grown along with the company. Because Newmark Knight Frank's business depends on strategic decision-making in the volatile world of real estate, the efficient and consolidated flow of up-to-date information across all portals in order to make these informed decisions has proven to be extremely valuable." 

"For 22 years, the InformationWeek 500 has honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. "As we start to emerge from the worst recession in decades, the IT focus is now on driving growth-new sources of revenue, new relationships with customers, even new business models. This year's ranking placed special emphasis on those companies and business technology executives leading that charge."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies.  Top winners have included:  CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum.  The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
