Truss simplifies the process of finding and leasing commercial space. Its web and mobile platforms enable businesses to go from search to lease with ease. Truss uses clever technology to improve the entire leasing process. Its AI-based chatbot, Vera, gathers and analyzes commercial space-seekers’ requirements and preferences to create a list of properties that will most likely match a user’s needs.  In addition, Truss uses everyday language that users can understand, instead of industry terms that are more easily understood by CRE professionals.
