Embracing Change : REThink | Innovate | Transform
Over the last decade, technological advancements have (1) reduced the need for traditional office space, (2) radically transformed CRE information management strategies and (3) introduced a new era of smart buildings and campuses. At the heart of this change is the ubiquity of high-speed Internet access, mobile technologies and cloud-based collaboration tools.
While these technological innovations have been happening gradually during this time, a significant increase in momentum has been seen in the last 12-18 months. This infographic illustrates the ongoing process.
Corporate real estate transformation begins with a business process requiring improvement, which is the BUSINESS DRIVER (motivation). We then move onto INNOVATION (the idea) where we aggregate the TECHNOLOGY (the tools) and finally the AUTOMATION of the process (the result).
The automation that results impacts three major areas of corporate real estate and facilities, 1) how we use space, 2) the information systems used to manage real estate and facility processes and 3) the smart, connected, high-performance building and campus.
Corporate America and corporations around the world have begun to fully embrace the benefits of how innovation, technology and automation can significantly transform how we use and operate buildings. The three most obvious business benefits include:
Significant reduction in energy usage
Significant reduction in operating costs
Creation of an engaging, safe and productive work environment
Sprint to Host CoRE Tech 2014: Sprint, a longtime pioneer in the mobility industry, along with several of their partners, have developed a series of mobile technology offerings designed specifically for the CRE and facilities environment. They will be the host of this year’s CoRE Tech conference, giving attendees a unique opportunity to tour their corporate campus and explore their Innovation Program focused on solving real estate problems using mobile and other leading-edge technologies.

Technology, automation and innovation are at the center of Corporate Real Estate and Facilities!
The CoRE Tech education program will focus on the issues facing corporate real estate, facility, sustainability and energy executives and explore the technology tools available that can positively impact the bottom line of their companies – from automating business processes, to general technology solutions specifically for corporate real estate organizations, to smarter “green” intelligent building technologies.
