Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) is one of the world’s largest real estate services firms, with a combined total of $5 billion in revenue, 43,000 employees and more than 4.3 billion square feet under management.
C&W was working with a legacy environmental management and reporting platform that was a combination of internal and third party systems. They were looking for a software platform to improve their data management and reporting capabilities.
Envizi’s software provides a layer data management, analysis, reporting and visualization that supports C&W service offering to their client base.

More and more service providers are seeing the exponential outcomes that can come from focusing effort in the areas they add most value. By moving away from their in-house built software platform to Envizi, C&W are freeing up valuable resources to deliver service outcomes to their client base.
C&W’s Australian operation includes a large Occupier Services division who specialise in managing large multi-site clients. In addition, C&W’s Sustainability Solutions team deliver specialist energy and environmental services including data management, performance reporting and analytics, strategy and client advisory as well as engineering and optimisation services.
In Australia, Envizi & C&W are working together to deliver market-leading software and environmental service solutions across some of C&W major clients including Australia Post, Aurizon, National Australia Bank, Suncorp, Westpac and Home Consortium.
WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP
Prior to partnering with Envizi, C&W was relying on an internal environmental management and reporting platform based on a combination of JD Edwards and SharePoint augmented by other third party systems . C&W went to market seeking a solution that:
- Was flexible with a strong product development roadmap which could keep pace with the evolving client and market requirements
- Could manage a broad range of energy and environmental metrics
- Provided a single source of truth for all data with robust data audit trails
- Delivered “the next level” of reporting/analysis dashboards and tools that were intuitive, attractive and supported the diverse needs of a broad range of stakeholders
- Leveraged data analytics to free up C&W from undertaking labour intensive data validation on spreadsheets to focus more on extracting highly valuable data insights informing strategic and timely decisions
Envizi was able to deliver to these requirements, and integrate with some of C&W’s incumbent systems to provide a cost effective, low risk data management, analytics, visualisation and reporting layer.
Using Envizi, C&W can deliver timely information to clients that is customized to meet their requirements. “The ability to customize, save and share dashboard views, has facilitated broader engagement with our clients” says Wright.
Envizi has also enabled the company to fast-track audit and assurance processes with real time access to high quality data.
“Envizi’s data capture and management processes give us confidence in the data quality with the system. If you know you are working from quality data, it makes the entire audit and assurance process that much more manageable” says Wright.
For C&W customers, Envizi has delivered the ‘next level’ of analysis and reporting with tools that are intuitive, attractive and able to support the diverse needs of a range of stakeholders. This is an important differentiator for C&W in the market.
