CHICAGO, June 14, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle (NYSE: JLL) today announced that the firm’s AiX business intelligence application, created in response to market demand for improved financial and operational performance of facilities, has been recognized with a 2013 Realcomm Digie award in the category of Best Use of Automation in Facility Management. The Digie Awards were presented in Orlando, Fla. this week at Realcomm IBCon, an intelligent buildings conference.

The award honors the innovation in Jones Lang LaSalle's new AiX software, the corporate real estate industry’s first automated tool for assessing integrated facilities management costs, spend and service levels against industry standards for an entire corporate real estate portfolio. The firm was also designated a finalist for Best Use of Automation in the commercial facilities category.
