Wearable technology will revolutionise the real estate sector says JLL


​​​In reaction to Apple’s latest product launch, global real estate firm JLL highlights the trend towards smart, wearable technology penetrating the increasingly tech-savvy corporate real estate sector.

According to Dr Lee Elliott, Global lead for Corporate Occupier Research: “The boom in wearable technology represents the next phase in a revolution shaping corporate real estate, namely the immediate need for real-time data and analytics. Real estate owners and occupiers  recognise that real estate analytics generated by smart buildings and the Internet of Things can, if addressed properly, provide rapid insight that can be used for competitive advantage. Devices such as the i-Watch, will provide  further opportunities for the creative use of technology to drive operational efficiency, corporate productivity and real estate strategy.”

JLL is at the forefront of this trend, in our recent Data-centric CRE report  we explored how data-driven CRE will transform the productivity and profitability of the organisations that embrace it.

At MIPIM in March 2014, JLL hosted live demonstrations on how Google Glass might be used in commercial real estate in their beachfront marquee.
