FacilGo® is a procurement collaboration marketplace where real estate companies and their supplier / contractor partners can problem solve, negotiate and transact. FacilGo® uses mobile and social networking technology to make the system accessible when you need it, and encourages collaboration between peers, customers and suppliers to help solve problems.
Back in the early days of SaaS and procurement software, Ken Murai and Michael Lin led the efforts to create OpsTechnology, the leading procurement marketplace for multifamily, acquired by RealPage in 2008. Back then, they had to create a market for their product, as well as familiarize customers with enterprise SaaS applications, which at the time were new concepts for multifamily real estate. Moreover, they were trying to grow the business right after the Internet bubble had burst, so they learned to be nimble and operate efficiently.
Several years later, Ken and Mike decided to work together again, and started a single family home portfolio. It was a small portfolio of 50 homes, and over time they experienced first hand the challenges of rehabbing and operating properties. They found that getting work done on the houses was inefficient and extremely frustrating due to the lack of good technology solutions on the market. Suppliers were also frustrated by how difficult it was to grow their businesses and operate efficiently. They realized that they could build an innovative, new solution, that would provide a streamlined platform, be built to work seamlessly with mobile technology and social networking, help buyers save money and help suppliers grow. Thus, FacilGo® was born.
