We are delighted to announce a new strategic alliance between Book A Corner and CBRE Spain. CBRE Group, Inc. is a leading and broad-ranging real estate services and investment firm. It offers a broad range of integrated solutions, including facilities, transaction and project management; property management; investment management; appraisal and valuation; property leasing; strategic consulting; property sales; mortgage services and development services. Clearly, our new partner needs no further introduction, being part of the largest commercial real estate services company in the world.
Book A Corner is joining forces with CBRE, the largest commercial real estate services company in the world.
From this moment onward, both firms join forces to offer the possibility of digitizing the complete process, from commercialization to management. CBRE can now provide its own solution to shopping mall clients through a customized and targeted tool, which will adapt to the needs and features of each asset.
According to Enrique Benavides, director of Innovation Retail & Asset Services from CBRE Spain, “Now, digital tools that assist in shopping mall management are necessary and, at the same time, an essential partner to offer a comfortable space for retailers and purchasers. Hence, Book A Corner offers us a tool that helps us be more efficient regarding management ―which will definitely convey a better offer analysis and increased revenue.”
“digital tools that assist in shopping mall management are a necessary and essential partner”
Our digital platform will guarantee every shopping mall a dynamic and easy management of the complete leasing process, including booking of the asset, payment and electronic signature, avoiding the tiresome and complex red-tape regarding leasing. It also makes it smoother for shopping malls to interact with potential retailers and allows an easier process regarding queries, bookings, visits, billing, and space performance analytics.
In the short term, the service will be available for 20 shopping malls managed by CBRE Spain. Eventually, this digital tool will cover over 50 shopping malls managed by CBRE España, aiming at improving the service offered to retailers and increasing revenue.

Moreover, shopping malls managed by this firm will have their own digital platform for short-term leases, a growing trend in the times of the pandemic. The PropTech concept is a new business model in real estate that offers shorter-term contracts or pop-up store models, which could last days, weeks or months. Following this alliance, CBRE’s platform will showcase a space search filter based on price, size or capacity, providing a direct and fast access to owners and space managers.
Definitely, there are many innovations to come. Digital processes are now more essential than ever, and little by little all enterprises will benefit from them. This is just the beginning, and we are excited to join CBRE in this great adventure.
