Taking time to reflect on the progression of technology allows for the appreciation of the way it has transformed the modern-day workplace. Gone are the days of the crank-dial telephone, the typewriter and the bulky desktop computer. Instead, we turn to our smart devices, our smartphone, our tablet, and now our smartwatch, to inform us when, where and how we must accomplish our tasks. The evolution of smart products allows for improved efficiencies and an all-around better way of doing business.
Specifically focusing on how smart technology has affected commercial property management, it is easy to perceive the beneficial changes in the most simplest of illustrations. Take for an example a routine property walk, the property manager would take pen to paper to note deficiencies during the inspection, wait until they returned to the office to transcribe the notes via email, then wait for a response from the vendor, which could take a week from start to finish.
Fast forward to today, property managers are now able to utilize their smartphones and tablets to take photos during property walks and instantly send photos identifying any issues to vendors who can immediately take action. The ability to complete what was once a time-consuming task is now streamlined using seemingly magical technology.
Yet magic is not perfect, and even our smart devices can fail in performance. This is where the human factor is paramount.
