. . . or are you a long-divisionator?

Seth Godin has a unique ability to distill issues and illuminate choices.

Long DivisionWhen someone handed you a calculator for the first time, it meant that long division was never going to be required of you ever again. A huge savings in time, a decrease in the cognitive load of decision making.

Now what?

You can use that surplus to play video games and hang out.

Or you can use that surplus to go learn how to do something that can’t be done by someone merely because she has a calculator.

Either way, your career as a long-divisionator was over.

Entire professions and industries are disrupted by the free work and shortcuts that are produced by the connection economy, by access to information, by robots. Significant parts of your job are almost certainly among them.

Now that we can get what you used to do really quickly and cheaply from someone else, you can either insist that you still get to do that for us at the same fee you used to charge, or you can move up the ladder and do something we can’t do without you.

Focus - A Compelling CaseCREi is building information management tools that leverage current technologies and service offerings for transforming the way large enterprises think about, control costs, and more effectively manage the financial performance of their owned and leased real estate portfolios. The primary market is enterprises where real estate is not the core focus of the business and the service providers that help them manage these assets and operations.

We are now reaching out to leading investment bankers and M&A advisors to explore options for the sale of the company, its intellectual property or reorganization. The value of these assets has been estimated to represent end user sales of between $1B and $4B annually. These estimates are based upon delivery by leading product and service providers in the space. More detailed information is available at our dedicated M&A Advisors Page. We look forward to your inquiries.
