VTS is rolling out VTS Retail, a new product offering said to be the industry’s only leasing platform designed specifically for the retail sector. The New York City-based company said the new product will enable retail landlords to significantly reduce the time from prospect to tenant move-in, and proactively manage shopping center strategy and risk.
“Our team spent hundreds of hours with retail landlords to understand the most painful challenges they experience throughout the leasing process,” said Nick Romito, CEO and co-founder, VTS. “With VTS Retail, retail landlords will finally have the modern technology they need to power their businesses.”
VTS also announced the formation of a Retail Advisory Board comprised of senior retail leaders who will provide strategic counsel and direction for VTS Retail products. The 12-member board includes representatives from Brookfield Properties, Shopcore, Blackstone and Oxford Properties Group.
