The UAE real estate sector is taking a big picture view of digital transformation, with an emphasis on empowering user experiences, sustainability and real time efficiencies.
Facilio, a leading AI-driven property operations platform, and Italy-based Evogy, a leading digital energy service provider specialising in the Energy-as-a-Service model, announced a strategic partnership to deliver IoT-led solutions and services to drive sustainability and improve operational efficiency for real estate portfolios.
