InformationWeek ranks JLL at forefront of digital revolution

JLL secures front-running position on list of companies pioneering businesses in technology

​Las Vegas, NV, April 2, 2014 – JLL today announced that it ranks in the top half of InformationWeek’s InformationWeek Elite 100, a list of the top business technology innovators in the U.S. In 2014, this assessment was narrowed from 500 companies to a more elite 100 organizations, positioning JLL ahead of its competitors as the highest-ranked company in the industry.

“JLL’s Information Technology teams are positively changing the way our business views and leverages technology,” said David Johnson, JLL, Chief Information Officer. “By developing technology strategies hand-in-hand with each of our business lines, we’re able to proactively evolve our tools to meet the needs of our employees, enabling them to be as productive and efficient as possible as they focus on delivering innovative and industry-leading services to our clients.”

For the third consecutive year, InformationWeek is distinguishing JLL’s innovation and ability to deliver solutions that allow its employees and clients to maximize the value of their real estate portfolios. Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights the power of business technology innovation.

JLL’s inclusion on the 2014 Elite 100 resulted from the impact of its Presence and Adoption team, formed in 2013 and comprised of Information Technology experts. The team developed strategies to train JLL’s global sales forces and brokers on the firm’s customized technologies that were developed to translate complex software and data into customizable dashboards. In just one year, the team was able to roll-out the implementation strategy and increase usage by 25 percent.

“The digital business movement is a force CIOs can't ignore. Digital businesses are adept at using the web in conjunction with mobile, social, analytics, and other technologies to not only boost sales, but also change their relationships with customers,” said Rob Preston, InformationWeek Editor-In-Chief. “Companies appearing on the 2014 InformationWeek Elite 100 highlights lead this digital revolution, redefine business models and reshape industries,”

This is InformationWeek’s 26th year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of information technology.  Our InformationWeek Elite 100 research tracks the technology-based investments, strategies, and results of some of the best-known organizations in the country.

“The Elite 100 solidifies our position as an innovative leader not only in our industry, but in the global business community,” Johnson said.
