Resident® joins the RICS Technology Affiliate Program

Resident® is proud to announce that it has joined the RICS Technology Affiliate Program intended to increase awareness and adoption of technology in the Real Estate and Built Environment sectors, benefiting both RICS professionals and the wider market.

Director, Kate Boyes MRICS, who has been a member of the RICS since 2004 and whose firm Resident® is regulated by the RICS states “I have been a proud member of the RICS since qualifying in 2004 and my sales and lettings business became regulated by the RICS when I became a partner in 2007 as I have always been committed to promoting their standards and best practice throughout everything we do. I founded our proptech business, Resident®, in 2014 as I saw the impact technology was having on the industry, something that is gathering in pace everyday. I am therefore extremely proud to become a member of the Technology Affiliate Program to further promote RICS awareness and standards in the proptech world.”

On the launch of the Tech Affiliate Program, Dan Hughes Director of Data and Information Product Management at the RICS commented “Data and technology has been used for many years across the built environment and has, to a degree, changed how we do things. However, more recently we have seen a faster pace of change in the built environment and how professionals carry out their roles.

In recognition of this change and the importance that technology companies have on our sector, we are delighted to launch the Tech Affiliate Program (TAP). The purpose of the program is to support awareness and thought leadership across the sector, specifically relating to the impact of technology, and to support professionals with the adoption of standards.”
