Realcomm | IBcon 2017 Digie Award Finalists Announced!
Realcomm has been presenting the "Digie" Awards (short for Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation Awards) since 1999 to recognize those outstanding companies, real estate projects, technologies as well as the people who have gone “above and beyond” to positively impact our industry through the intelligent application of technology, automation and innovation.
Commercial, corporate, government and institutional real estate involve an inordinate amount of information, systems and business processes to operate the business. This data intensive, manual, mostly disconnected environment provides the perfect opportunity to radically transform how we do our business. For this reason, we continue to recognize those who are leading the charge for a more efficient, effective and profitable industry.
In 2012, we created separate award categories for Realcomm and IBcon to more clearly address the difference between automating real estate business processes and creating intelligent building systems, buildings, portfolios and cities.
This year's Realcomm Digie Award categories are:
Best Use of Automation
This award is given to those companies in the following categories who have applied an extraordinary level of automation, technology and innovation to their business processes:
- Property|Facility Management
- Commercial Services
- Commercial Real Estate
- Corporate Real Estate
- Real Estate Investment Management
This award is given to two companies who’ve introduced new products to the market that strive to re-engineer our very manual and disparate industry through the creation of innovative automation solutions.

It takes vision, determination, tenacity and commitment to keep this industry moving in the right direction.

UPCOMING REALCOMM WEBINARS
Commercial and Corporate Real Estate Cyber Risk - Developing a Comprehensive Strategy - 10/25/2018
Hardly a day goes by that we don’t hear about a Cyber breach. The most recent of scale was Equifax, the credit reporting agency in which credit information of 143 million of its clients was breached. While most of the incidents we hear about involve data or financial theft, there is a looming threat…our built infrastructure. This infrastructure includes everything from power plants to dams, but also includes the millions of buildings we use every day to work, shop, learn, recreate, manage our health and more. The threats range from unwanted building access to pirating of video surveillance and everything in between. This webinar will focus on the entire spectrum of Commercial and Corporate Real Estate cyber challenges, solutions and strategies.
