Before the pandemic I developed intelligent rent collection tools for the real estate sector.

I used to feel like the only way to engage companies in questioning their methods of income generation was by pandering to short-term management strategies; promoting savings and cost efficiencies through automation and machine learning.

The relief to leave this short-termism behind is palpable… for everyone involved. It is a terrible way to sell technology. It is a cul-de-sac of ambition, and a quagmire of exciting and progressive use-cases.

With shared long-term interest, led by a willingness to better understand the consumer relationship, companies are able to explore the benefits of AI. For employees as well as for consumers.. whilst also feeding their bottom line.

Only now are we seeing attitudes towards forbearance and collections change in the real estate sector, building trust and confidence in applying technology and effectively sharing data. Huge steps forward in building the products and services the sector needs to evolve.
