How BenchCore Helped a Fortune 100 Oil & Gas Company Identify $45MM in Savings

The Facilities and Head of Office Real Estate at a Fortune 100 oil and gas company.

This organization has historically relied on their brokerage to perform benchmarking reports, which has caused problems with biased, untrustworthy data and lack of customization abilities in order to drill down on the metrics that actually matter to the business.

BenchCore allows the facilities team to analyze the exact cost and size benchmarks that are relevant to them on a global scale. The team can now make cost-cutting decisions based on defendable data across metrics like global market asking rents and vacancy, domestic tenant improvement on new leases and renewals, quartile benchmarks, and site-versus-site performance.

This Fortune 100 utilized BenchCore’s peer benchmarking tool to set actionable and attainable goals, identifying over $45MM in operational cost savings opportunities globally.

BenchCore is the leading corporate real estate benchmarking software solution. BenchCore allows members to benchmark against their own portfolio, their peers, and their markets. 

BenchCore was acquired by RefineRE in April 2020 and has since been incorporated as a module within the RefineRE Business Intelligence Suite.

Corporate real estate benchmarking software allows users to benchmark against their own locations, their peers, and their markets in an interactive platform with dynamic filtering capabilities across region, country, city, asset class, ownership type, and facility size.

CRE benchmarking software differs from one-off benchmarking reports, in that one-off reports are a static snapshot of a moment in time. The benefit of a benchmarking software is the ability to track historical metrics and progress over time and customize filters and reports to align with business goals.

BenchCore clients begin the process of benchmarking corporate office locations by uploading their data in our platform and handing off the 52-step validation and cleansing process to their dedicated analyst. 

Once all data is uploaded and validated in the system, users have access to our self-service benchmarking software where they can benchmark against other organizations, against their own portfolio, and against their markets.
