DIVVY Parking sponsors PropTech Summit 2020

DIVVY is a proud top floor partner of the PropTech Summit 2020 to be staged virtually from 10 – 11 November.

The PropTech Summit returns this year to explore how technology is putting the customer, and their needs, right at the heart of the property sector.

Inter-connected consumer demands now control their experiences of real estate. How they park, access their building, control the temperature in their apartment, their lighting and how they use their utilities. Consumers are more digital savvy then they ever have been in the past.

PropTech 2020 will connect delegates from the real estate, proptech and venture capital and investment fields and help them to discover how to leverage technology to enhance their customers experience and deliver gains across the board with sound digital transformation plans and strategies.  

Key themes at this year’s summit include:

  • Benchmarking your business against industry best practice to stay ahead of the pack.
  • Successfully integrating proptech into commercial real estate.
  • Achieving measurable ROI from proptech.
  • Understanding how COVID-19 is impacting real estate.
  • Leveraging specific technologies to increase efficiency and control
  • Meeting the future requirements of the connected customer and tenant.

Our CEO Grant Fowler will be presenting on the topic “How to invest in Proptech and achieve measurable ROI on day one of the summits. His session will cover such points as:

  • Why are you investing in proptech? Sometimes the non-tangible ROI can be just as effective as the fiscal tangible outcomes.
  • Prepare for the change that the technology you’re investing in enables.
  • Does your current infrastructure allow ROI on the proptech you’re investing in?

Grant will also be joining DIVVY’s friends Dexus and others for a panel discussion on day two called How Does Implementing Proptech Impact the Bottom Line? The panel will consider such topics as:

  • Does enhancing the experience of building occupants translate to increased rents or occupancy?
  • How does increasing the performance and flexibility of the built environment pay off?
  • What are the specific ‘value-adds’ that tomorrow’s clients are going to be willing to pay more for?

DIVVY supports Woolworths with the development of Q-tracker

As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, the Australian tech company DIVVY supported Woolworths in building an online booking system -Q-tracker that allows shoppers to assess crowd capacity before making their way to their local store. The customer tool is in addition to the existing measures Woolworths has put in place for COVID-19.

This new technology will monitor queue lengths outside shops with restricted customer numbers – and will help shoppers pick a less busy period when there is no waiting time. The Q-tracker makes use of real-time data to show customers whether stores have had to implement a queue at the entry to support social distancing and any wait time associated with it.

DIVVY’s Chief Information Officer, Anton Mills said:

“This technology was built with the ability to translate to other industries who are also facing similar challenges. It has been built to be agnostic to the industry and can be rapidly integrated with organisations to assist them to adapt to queuing and distancing measures throughout COVID-19.

I’m proud of the team for turning this around in one week, to ensure our client Woolworths Supermarkets could roll this tool out across its four stores in Victoria.”

Currently, this new online booking technology is being trialled at four Woolworths stores in Victoria including Taylors Lakes, Hampton Park, South Melbourne, and St Helena. With this system, customers can book a time to do their shopping without the need to stand in a queue if one exists and be able to safely practice social distancing.

Woolworth store

How does it work?

  1. Head to http://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/discover/q-tracker and simply search for their preferred store by postcode or suburb.
  2. Use the key, to view the estimated queue wait time to enter the Woolworths stores closest to you.
  3. Based on the entered location, it will show the closest stores and also highlight it on the map.
  4. To help you plan when to shop, click the store card which will expand to show when to enter the store and when it is busiest during the week.
  5. The tool updates every 5 mins so you’ll have the latest information whether you’re about to leave home or on your way.

This technology – Q Tracker, can be integrated with other businesses & organisations to assist them to adapt to queuing and distancing measures related to COVID-19.

Woolworths Director of Stores, Robert Moffat said:

“Keeping our customers and teams safe continues to be our top priority at Woolworths.Q-Tracker is a new customer tool across all Woolworths Supermarkets. By helping customers plan when and where they shop before they leave home, Q-Tracker makes it easier to avoid busy periods, save time, and shop with health and safety in mind. Even though most of our stores do not need to implement queuing at the moment, this tool has been developed as another measure to support the safety of our team and customers.”
