A unique opportunity has emerged for real estate companies, property managers and investors to reimagine the way they operate their business, invest into assets and engage with their stakeholders as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. While trends in strategic transformation have accelerated throughout the industry, leading real estate businesses have taken their technology strategy and data analysis one step further to advance their business objectives, improve profitability and enhance flexibility.

Yet many companies do not realize that they already have access to much of the invaluable data that has the potential to transform their business. Areas that benefit significantly from an increased emphasis on technology and analysis include deal due diligence and transaction closure, as well as back-office management and business process optimization. Data and technology can also help capture insights to improve maintenance and tenant engagement.

Join RSM’s Troy Merkel, real estate senior analyst, and Amar Joshi, management consulting lead, Toronto, for a webinar hosted by the Canadian Real Estate Forums to hear how:

  • Real estate stakeholders can tap into data to inform their strategic investment and business decisions
  • Companies can leverage technology to enhance information exchange, transparency and ultimately increase profitability
  • Technology can help build resilience within your business to address a new balance of work models, and compete for talent
