JLL Continues Streak of Tech Accolades with Realcomm Digie Award

Award recognizes launch of RED, the commercial real estate industry’s first scalable data and insights platform


CHICAGO, July 13, 2016 -- For the second time this year, JLL (NYSE: JLL) has been recognized for pioneering the use of data and analytics tools in the commercial real estate (CRE) industry. The most recent honor came in the form of the 2016 Realcomm Digie Award for Best Use of Automation-Commercial Services.

JLL received the award for the launch of RED, the CRE industry's first scalable data and insights platform. The win comes on the heels of JLL's inclusion on InformationWeek's annual

Elite 100 ranking, a list of the top business technology innovators in the United States for 2016.

"Commercial real estate is in the midst of a digital revolution and our success depends increasingly on our digital, data and information-management capabilities," said Edward Wagoner, Global Chief Information Officer, Corporate Solutions, JLL. "In addition to unveiling RED in 2015, we expanded our capabilities by acquiring Corrigo, a pioneer in cloud-based facility management solutions, and BRG, a recognized expert in workplace technology consulting and implementation. Receiving this award is further validation that our strategic approach to technology is working."

The RED platform brings together master data governance, knowledge management, business intelligence and advanced analytics. Combined with cutting-edge technologies and JLL's real estate and data and analytics expertise, it dramatically improves the quality and speed of real estate decision-making. More than half of CRE executives view a lack of data and analytics tools as a top constraint on their performance, according to JLL's 2015 Global Corporate Real Estate Trends survey. By addressing this industry challenge with an open architecture format, RED enables JLL's clients to derive insights based on multiple and diverse sources, including their own legacy systems, without making major new technology investments.

This is Realcomm's 17th year identifying and honoring companies and individuals who positively impact the industry through the use of technology, automation and innovation. In May, JLL was named to the InformationWeek Elite 100, which also recognized the launch of RED. It marked the fifth consecutive year JLL was included on the prestigious list. Previously, InformationWeek named HiRise, JLL's online office marketplace, one of "20 Great Ideas to Steal in 2015."
