Colophon New Media Announces the Launch of the CORFAC International Member Extranet System

January 18, 2012

Established in 1989 as a non-profit association, CORFAC International is a group of peer companies and organizations in commercial real estate. Firm participation is by invitation only with market exclusivity expressly granted. Importantly, referred business to CORFAC firms is all done on an elective basis by the referring broker.

In 2009 Colophon completed the redevelopment of CORFAC.COM. The new site was a massive improvement for the public facing site, but included only a small area for management of member firm data.

In 2011, a project was started to migrate all member data from the CORFAC legacy system to a new Extranet on the Cloud, with the goal of offering members immediate access to critical data and tools via the web.

The CORFAC Extranet was a “design-build” project. While there was a set of requirements at the start of the project, new ideas were introduced consistently over the 10 month development cycle of the project. Colophon worked to create custom features based new business. New features benefitted from input from CORFAC admin, outside consultants, and members.

Residing at a secure datacenter, the Extranet is hosted and maintained by Colophon using one of our cost-effective maintenance plans. Content for the system is controlled by Site Manager - Colophon's Powerful Content Management System.

Every module installed on the site and controlled by Site Manager is customized to the unique needs of the website and its owner's objectives.

The entire system lives on the cloud in the desert of Arizona. The data center runs state-of-the-art technology and is staffed by experienced, and dedicated server technicians.

Support is available 24/7.

The CORFAC Extranet is an ongoing software development project. While the bones of the system are in place, each month brings new challenges for the organization - precipitating new features for both administrators and member users.
