Though in the past, technology advancements within commercial real estate have transpired slower when compared to other industries, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic rapidly propelled new, necessary innovations across the field. In addition, industry experts and stakeholders have indisputably assessed the use of technology in commercial real estate more than ever, throughout the past year.

Proving imperative to each sector and field across commercial real estate during the past 18 months, considering the nationwide shutdowns and the mandatory shift to remote work, technological progressions have undeniably impacted the industry for the better.

Showcasing skilled technological expertise and the ability to quickly adapt, these forward-thinking commercial real estate professionals continue to foster and improve outdated practices through the use of big data, artificial intelligence and smart mobility. By utilizing detailed, timely insights, these professionals have created and/or improved technology applications that monitor properties, ensure building health and safety, observe traffic patterns, offer residents with accessibility, assist operators with building efficiencies and more.
