Harnessing technology for the new normal
In the era of new normal, investment prospects for “proptech” are seen as strong and encouraging.
Over the past several years, it has actually been gaining traction globally given the massive opportunities it can offer. But proptech has become even more relevant than ever as the ongoing pandemic has accelerated the need to invest in technological innovations that would meet new health and safety protocols as well as changing market preferences in real estate.
Proptech, coined from the terms property and technology, is defined by some quarters as information technology being harnessed to come up with better innovations and more sophisticated capabilities that could disrupt and transform real estate. Forbes earlier defined it as “businesses using technology to disrupt and improve the way we buy, rent, sell, design, construct, and manage residential and commercial property.”
Today, many are harping on proptech and its potentially lucrative opportunities, which can offer higher value gains, maximized revenues, more efficient operations and increased savings. In fact, Deloitte’s “Real Estate Predictions 2020”, which covers a global view on the future on real estate, included proptech in its Top 10 list, pointing out that “proptech presents that rare chance to disrupt such an industry and its attracting a lot of attention from entrepreneurs, investors, and industry incumbents all at once.”
In the Philippines, one property developer is leading the way in proptech, offering numerous innovations in its latest landmark project in Davao City.
Rising along C.M. Recto St., 202 Peaklane Serviced Apartments by Anchor Land Holdings Inc. offers fully furnished serviced apartments with integrated smart systems and technological innovations that make this project well suited to thrive in a post pandemic era.
