Property Week Think Tank ‘Exploring the barriers to the adoption of new technology across the property industry’
On 04 October 2012 John Cuppello, CEO Qube Global Software took part in the above event. The meeting was called by Property Week to discuss the recent white paper, Worker of the Future and the Evolving use of Technology in the Property Industry. The paper was launched in September 2012 and was produced by Property Week in association with Qube Global Software. This paper was produced on the back of a major research project by Property Week in the summer of 2012.
Chairing the Think Tank was Property Week Editor in Chief Giles Barrie who posed the questions on the research and the paper to a select group of industry professionals. Companies represented included: Cushman and Wakefield, Knight Frank and Mountgrange Investment Management. Senior staff from these companies discussed how they felt the property industry was coping with the recent growth in technology solutions that has influenced both home and office life.
The event which took place at Tower 42 will become a feature in Property Week in the next month. If you require any further information on this event or the research please contact James Lavery at Qube Global Software.
