CHICAGO, July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- We are thrilled to announce that Cityzenith won the prestigious Digie Award for "Best Technology Innovation in Commercial/Corporate Real Estate of 2016" at Realcomm in San Jose this past Wednesday, June 22nd. Previous winners include: Keyhole (Google Earth), the iPad, Tridium, (Google) Android, and Yardi, and many other industry-leading disruptive technologies.
Realcomm has been handing out the "Digie" Award (short for Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation Awards) since its first event in 1999. "The main purpose of this award is to recognize those companies, real estate projects, technologies and people that have gone above and beyond to positively impact our industry through the use of technology, automation and innovation. Commercial, Corporate, Government and Institutional Real Estate involve an inordinate amount of information, systems and business processes to operate the business. This data intensive, manual, mostly disconnected environment provides the perfect opportunity to radically transform how we do our business. For this reason, we continue to recognize those who are leading the charge for a more efficient, effective and profitable industry." (source: Realcomm)
