Compelling and dramatic images captured by drones are marketing devices used by companies in the US and Europe to reach out to a larger client base.

4. Internet of Things (IoT)

This revolutionary technology : data generated by devices spread across the office space and initiates ‘smart’ action. As sensor technology gets more affordable, there will be scope for increased use of sensors across office spaces and will be greatly useful in the facilities management business.

5. Virtual Reality

A blend of architecture design and gaming software, virtual reality (VR) technology lets clients gain a real-time experience of their under-construction offices. By wearing specially designed VR glasses, they can view 3D videos of all areas of the property and make an informed choice.

The connectivity and information generated by these technologies can truly transform and empower all CRE stakeholders- developers, customers, and consultants.
