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.

UPCOMING REALCOMM WEBINARS
Future-proofing BUILDING COMMUNICATIONS – 5G, WIFI, CBRS, Bluetooth, In-building Wireless and More - 5/23/2019
In an ever-increasing wireless world, building owners and operators can no longer ignore the needs of a mobile society. Every day, more applications are added to our phones which include video, immersive media, wayfinding, hailing a ride, ordering food, accessing a building and more. So much of what we do relies on good wireless connectivity, and buildings must deliver the same service as the outdoor world. Over the next few years, 5G and other technologies are going to radically improve wireless connectivity and ultimately impact the communications strategy for buildings. In order to provide tenants with a 21st century experience, buildings must keep pace with this trend. This webinar will cover a wireless strategy that includes both experiential and operational issues.
