Read about how Jones Lang LaSalle saves money and cuts e-waste in this Environmental Leader magazine article.
When people ask, "Frank, how is MarkITx doing?" I always have plenty of good news to report. Transaction volume is up 8x in the last three months, we have 1,200 users signed up for the exchange, we're now doing business on 5 continents, our new office space is awesome... I could go on and on.
Our latest news is no exception. Yesterday we announced our relationship with Jones Lang LaSalle, one of the largest real estate brokerage firms in the nation.
The Data Center Division of Jones Lang LaSalle has already been active on the MarkITx exchange, trading used IT gear and supporting the firm’s global commitment to sustainable practices. What's more, Matt, Sean, Andy and the Data Center team are helping their data center clients do the same.
Before MarkITx existed, large enterprise firms like Jones Lang LaSalle had to settle for pennies-on-the-dollar returns for their decommissioned IT equipment. Now they know the true market value of this gear as well as when there are active markets to trade it. As far as good news goes, we're pretty damn stoked to be the ones facilitating better returns for everyone.
