The real estate sector has been slow to embrace digital innovations that have sprung up with the advancement of technologies such as cloud computing, smartphones, tablets and low-cost sensors. Up until five years ago, software tools used within the real estate and property industries had changed little since the early 2000s, as many of the processes relied on intermediaries to navigate the complexities inherent in an industry where no two buildings are alike. Now, however, technological change is impacting the property sector in similar ways as financial technology (fintech) in the financial sector and insurance technology (insuretech) in the insurance sector. With significant levels of investment being poured into proptech, Verdantix has identified this as an important new investment sector for real estate and facilities software vendors to track as they review opportunities for partnerships, investments, risks from new entrants, and acquisitions of firms with strong IP that could lead to new competitive differentiators.
