This Month in CRE Tech - October 2015

Pierce Neinken has done it again! For the third year in a row, hundreds of industry leaders and tech companies came together in New York City to connect on what's new in CRE tech. We were honored to participate in the sold-out CRE // Tech Intersect conference last Thursday, and very much appreciate Pierce and the event team for facilitating a larger conversation about how technology is changing the commercial real estate business! We love hearing about new technology in CRE and wanted to highlight some of the new up-and-coming companies in the industry who were also at the event.

Managed by Q
Q makes it easy to run an office by providing cleaning and other smart services to help office operations run smoothly. The service includes an iPad that’s installed for free in the office, enabling office managers and teams to devise cleaning schedules, restock supplies, and order on-demand handymen. Q automatically tracks your previous usage data to predict the right amount of supplies you need for the next month.

The Supplies Tracker lets everyone in the office alert the office manager when they are out of stock on supplies – whether it's coffee, cereal, or paper clips. The Tracker then puts everything neatly into a web dashboard for the office manager, who can see a list of what's needed. The service is currently available in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.
