The Importance of Digital Transformation in the Real Estate Industry

Real estate companies can reduce their costs and improve performance on a large scale, by implementing and optimizing various digital technologies. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic can be felt in many industries, including the real estate sector, where the need for digital transformation can no longer be denied. 

Your potential tenants will look online for their future space, and optimizing your website to include 3D views of the building makes it easier for people to visualize themselves being there. However, the big-scale benefits of digital transformation are to be found in the business administrations of property management: 

When it comes to managing business processes for real estate firms, automating manual processes is one way of reducing discrepancy, increasing productivity levels and improving the lines of communication between all stakeholders. 

Your employees will benefit from not having to work with a high number of documents and data stored in different places, when you’ve opted for a system where everything is coordinated and organized in a simpler and more efficient manner. In fact, accounting software in property management reduces invoice processing cost per by about 80%, according to Michael Mullin, President of Integrated Business Systems. Then imagine the impact digital transformation will have across all property management activities, from accounting to lease administration, communications and inter-organizational data handling. 

With a big increase in the number of available solutions that can simplify the management of properties, especially from the emerging PropTech landscape, there’s a need to consider which critical aspects your real estate business needs solved. Depending on your specific business needs, you could be looking at implementing several solutions for various purposes, or an integrated, all-in-one solution. 

Just remember when considering different software solutions, that the digital transformation must be future-proof,  so make sure the technology you invest in is a scalable and flexible solution that will strengthen your competitive advantage and improve bottom line results in the long run.
