Knight Frank LLP: Knight Frank Database Upgrade Cuts Website Development From Months to Weeks
Global property consultancy Knight Frank wanted to enhance client service by helping its experts successfully combine geospatial data with other sources of information. The needs of the London residential development team corresponded with a review at Knight Frank of its existing data management software. The firm wanted to improve mobile working, ease collaboration, and guarantee always-on data availability. In 2012, it upgraded its existing data management software to Microsoft SQL Server 2012, and combined this with use of Bing Maps for Enterprise. The firm has already seen an increase in productivity, with new application development time reduced from months to weeks.
