The new Altus Data Studio by Altus Group is a data analytics platform that provides clients a deeper level of insight on the Canadian real estate market with new analytical capabilities.
This platform combines Altus Group’s subscription-based data from its legacy RealNet and Altus InSite offerings in a single application.
“The launch of Altus Data Studio provides our Canadian data clients with an enhanced ability to better search, analyze and gain insights based on our market-leading real estate data,” said Richard Simon, Managing Director at Altus Group. “This new data platform delivers a significantly improved user experience and makes it easier for clients to make faster and smarter investment, development and leasing decisions.”
With Altus Data Studio, clients will have the ability to access over 20 years of real estate data representing over 139,000 transactions, 50,000 commercial properties, and every new residential development project in major markets across Canada.
Subscribers to multiple Altus Group data sets will benefit from a single view of all data providing a more comprehensive picture of a property and overall market dynamics. The platform leverages a distinct identifier assigned to each asset allowing the system to organize all data associated with the property and make it available to subscribers.
Altus Data Studio delivers single-view access and enhanced search functionality, where users can search all data sets in a single-view using one common search tool to access relevant transactions, project and listing information faster.
The platform also offers a simplified data catalogue record structure that permits users to quickly source relevant data by highlighting key information and metrics.
The flexible platform architecture allows new data to be quickly integrated and made available to clients. Direct integration between RealNet and Altus InSite data provides the ability to gather and consolidate all data points related to a property while the map feature serves as both a tool to search and visualize.
Mapping, reporting, analytics and searching functionality can be used to build reports, view the dashboard and analyze the data. Additionally, Altus Group states that future functionality will include persona-based tools that allow the platform search and reporting functions to be specially tailored to users’ needs and requirements.
