OSCRE International is a member-based Non-profit organization dedicated to the development and implementation of real estate standards for information exchange. OSCRE has created and published a number of XML data schemas for both corporate real estate and investment applications. The standard defines structured data sets digital applications may use in exchanging and sharing data that drives business decisions at every level of the organization.[1]

OSCRE - The Standards[edit]

The Business Case for OSCRE Standards[edit]

* Better information, better decisions, optimized performance
* Foundational to an information-enabled business model
* Speed and ease of integration and delivery
* Consistency, quality and accuracy of data
* Data for analytics and business intelligence
* Lower overall cost of ownership of information and systems
* Improved data governance and risk management
* Better workflows and process integration 
* Common definitions and metrics

The standards consist of real estate terms, definitions and rules that utilize a common data set and enable users to facilitate the transfer of data between end users, software developers, service providers, consultants and benchmarking and indexing services. It is a "single source of truth" approach to data collection and analytics that improves decision-making and an organization's performance.
