In a world adjusting to rapidly evolving work models, the adoption of proptech companies and technology partnerships has become a necessity. Proptech, meaning the combination of properties and technologies, has seen steady growth within the commercial real estate (CRE) industry. The increased role of technology at work post-COVID-19 will allow companies to add purpose to how time is spent at work, and reinforce meaningful experiences. A critical component in creating dynamic and safe workplace experiences in 2021 is bridging the gap between the physical office and the digital experiences in the workplace to create omnichannel office experiences.
Over the past few years, countless commercial proptech companies and proptech startups have sprouted up during the rapid evolution of office innovation. As part of the HqOS operating system, our growing Marketplace helps landlords sort through all this with a collection of best-in-class property tech companies and partners aggregating numerous office solutions for any building in our end-to-end tenant engagement platform.
Let’s take a look at just a small number of proptech companies that are a part of the HqOS Marketplace, along with some proptech examples that will be key this year and beyond.
