PropTech is part of a digital transformation of the property industry that looks to improve and change how we do real estate. As a definition, It refers to innovative business models or new inventive technology for the real estate markets. (https://hubblehq.com/blog/london-most-innovative-proptech-companies). As one of the ‘Fathers’ of Proptech @jamesdearsley has produced the Proptech UK map below which provides an insight into the broad range of services and business in the sector.
James Dearsley is also one of the founders of https://www.unissu.com – the largest database of Proptech companies in the world – with over 6000 companies worldwide it is clear the property sector is no longer just talking about BIM as the future of all innovation.
Whilst at Aftermap we recognise the value of data and of platforms such as Land Insight (https://www.landinsight.io) to access it – we also agree with Emma Hendry (https://www.globalrealestateexperts.com/2018/12/unlocking-the-value-of-data-through-proptech-by-emma-hendry/) when she says, true value will not come from data alone, but from the insights gleaned from interrogating, analysing and developing on the data. That is effectively what Aftermap is all about, combining people – developers and agents requirements with the data together with extensive property and environmental planning experience to provide real insights into an area – finding sites that meet clients needs and then offering support to unlock the potential.
