About the talk
Commercial real estate (CRE) owners and operators are overcoming a big challenge that has long afflicted the industry. On one hand, it’s critical to operate as efficiently as possible to keep costs under control and net operating income (NOI) high. On the other, tenants have growing expectations and demands. Technology has, in many ways, been touted as the answer, and many CRE companies are modernizing with tech solutions. The overarching intent driving such investment by CRE owners and operators has been to discover more efficient ways to operate buildings, without sacrificing tenant engagement and satisfaction. However, the path to putting this into practice in most CRE firms hasn’t been that simple.
As a result, owners and operators are struggling with a complex patchwork of systems that often cannot be integrated into a cohesive ecosystem and they lack technology partners with sufficient domain experience and technical depth. To address these challenges, owners and operators must standardize on modern, cloud-based systems with an open architecture that facilitates data flows between key platforms. And, tech stacks need to be built based on three primary pillars:
Finance & Accounting: billing, AP, investor reporting
Building operations: asset management, engagement, engineering
Leasing: tenants, occupants, consumers
This session will feature Scott Morey, executive director of One11 Advisors, Tim Curran, chief executive officer of Building Engines, and Daniel Cozza, chief product officer of Building Engines, who will dive deeper into the concept of the ‘three pillars’ of CRE, the tech gap that exists in the industry and how to bring the industry the tech solutions it wants and needs to drive business growth.

Tim Curran, CEO of Building Engines, and Daniel Cozza the Chief Product Officer and this session really and the series of sessions are around real estate and sustainability and where that's going in the challenges in the marketplace where text fits into that what tech is doing. Well, you know where I can improve and I think you know before we jump in there are two or three overall Killers
When we look at technology and I think the two of you agree with it, someone is around Finance and Accounting and sort of the bucket of solutions there which has been in place for a while but really didn't catch up as kind of what I would call Enterprise-level tools probably till the last I'd say probably in six to eight years. Then you got a bucket around leasing which is Evan flowed or last couple of decades showing my age, but clearly has a dominant player in that space today and the circulars round building operations, which is where you guys operate in and what this
conference is based on and as you know, there's a lot of movement there and Building Engines of course has been a leader in that space per couple decades now, but you continue to sort of expand and grow on how you meet your customers' demands and what you do out in that space. So I'd love for you to talk in more detail around sustainability standability building operations and kind of how you
