Realcomm | IBcon 2018 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
  • Retail Real Estate
  • Corporate Real Estate
  • Real Estate Investment Management
  • Architecture

  • Best Tech Innovation Commercial|Corporate Real Estate
    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.

    Julie Devine Digital Impact Award
    It takes vision, determination, tenacity and commitment to keep this industry moving in the right direction. This award will acknowledge two such individuals who saw things ahead of their associates, had the courage to leave the mainstream and the tenacity to keep standing up after possibly many failed attempts.

    This year's IBcon Digie Award categories are:
