COMMERCIAL INVESTMENT REAL ESTATE 22 July | August 2017 Martin Barraud From the start, CCIM Insti- tute combined practical knowledge in educational training with technology to enhance the success of its members. In the early years, the technology was Hewlett Packard fi nancial calculators. Today, it's Site To Do Business. No matter which technology is ascendant, the goal is the same — for CCIM designees in small companies to compete with those in large, sophis- ticated fi rms. On the other hand, many CCIMs employed at big fi rms still opt to use STDB because of its technological capabilities. A CCIM instructor for many years, Phil McBride, CCIM, has experienced many early technology adaptations at the Institute — from the introduc- tion of the internal rate of return through the debut of STDB. "The Institute has always been blessed with instructors and leaders who had the fore- sight to incorporate the best of technology into the courses," says McBride, owner of McBride & Co. Level Playing Field CCIM Institute develops technology to level the playing fi eld between big and small companies. by Sara S. Patterson THE FOURTH OF SIX STORIES ON THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF CCIM INSTITUTE "The ability to use email opened up communications among designees, which resulted in conducting transactions with each other." — Jay R. Lucas, CCIM, senior director with Cushman & Wakefi eld in Austin, Texas
