For Charlie Hobey, Principal at Palisade Group, and his team, the pursuit of efficiency and accuracy led them to adopt Prophia—an innovative platform designed to streamline the due diligence process and provide real-time insights through AI-powered lease abstraction.

"Prophia has been a game-changer for us," Hobey affirms "during due diligence, where every moment counts, having access to precise, timely data can spell the difference between success and setback."

Indeed, the benefits of leveraging Prophia became evident early in the acquisition due diligence phase. By harnessing the platform's advanced AI capabilities, Palisade Group uncovered a dozen missing documents and critical discrepancies within lease agreements—discoveries that could have led to costly oversights if left unaddressed.

"We were impressed by the depth of information Prophia delivered," recalls Hobey. "Not only did it flag potential errors, but it also identified opportunities for significant cost savings."

Beyond identifying discrepancies, Prophia played a vital role in expediting the due diligence process—a critical factor in today's fast-paced real estate landscape.

"In our industry, time is currency," explains Hobey. "Delays can derail even the most promising deals, making efficiency paramount. Prophia allowed us to accelerate our due diligence efforts, empowering us to act decisively."

Central to Prophia's effectiveness was its capacity to foster collaboration among internal stakeholders—a crucial element of the due diligence process. By offering a centralized platform for data access and sharing, Prophia facilitated seamless communication and alignment across Palisade Group's diverse teams.

"From our property management team to our legal advisors, everyone had access to the same information in real time. This not only enhanced efficiency but also improved transparency and accountability."

As Hobey reflects on the acquisition's success, he emphasizes Prophia's role in providing crucial support throughout the due diligence process. "Prophia played a vital role in helping us structure, organize, and analyze the lease data, enabling us to make informed decisions and structure a deal that aligned with our strategic objectives," says Hobey. "Moving forward, we're confident that Prophia's innovative technology and intuitive interface will continue to drive superior outcomes for our firm and our investors."
