Cushman & Wakefield Collaborates with Saltmine to Transform Commercial Property Search with 3-D Digital Tours

6/26/2019

New technology empowers end-users with a new way to visualize and plan their current or future workspace

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global commercial real estate leader Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) announced a collaboration with Saltmine, a San Francisco-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) startup that provides design data technology for the commercial real estate industry.

Through the use of cutting-edge A.I. planning and 3-D space visualization technology, the Saltmine platform enables Cushman & Wakefield professionals to quickly create space plans, test fits and virtual tours of potential workspaces, providing clients with a new way to visualize and plan their current or future workspace.

The collaboration is the latest example of Cushman & Wakefield’s client-centric technology strategy, which leverages strategic partnerships to deliver value and momentum, said Melanie Kirkwood Ruiz, Cushman & Wakefield’s Chief Information Officer for the Americas.

“This collaboration with Saltmine puts our clients in the driver’s seat, allowing them to make faster, better-informed decisions about their workspace,” Kirkwood Ruiz said. “That’s a key part of our technology strategy: putting more power and knowledge into our clients’ hands by developing partnerships with a network of organizations that give us access to the latest insights and innovations. Now, with Saltmine, we’re combining our firm’s deep expertise and experience in commercial real estate with a progressive tech company, new tools and cutting-edge technology.”

Using property data and core and shell plans, the Saltmine platform integrates clients’ workplace strategy, programming and design – all in one place. Cushman & Wakefield advisors can now quickly digitize fully fitted properties in a matter of days, creating powerful interactive renderings that allow clients to experience the potential of their workspace.

“With our cloud-based platform, Cushman & Wakefield is able to offer clients a transformative way to evaluate and choose real estate,” said Saltmine founder and CEO Shagufta Anurag. “The ability to see in real time what a workspace could look like allows clients to proactively shape their workplace strategy like never before.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s expanded capabilities come as commercial real estate clients seek and expect technology that makes their real estate strategies simple, efficient and predictable.

“By virtually taking clients through a space and laying out their costs, we can make their site selection process predictable, experiential and flexible,” Kirkwood Ruiz said. “Clients know a relationship with Cushman & Wakefield brings expertise accentuated by technology.”
