Matthew will take the Sponsors Showcase stand at 11:45am at the ExCel Centre London where the prestigious ARLA event will be held for the first time.

Matthew will open with an invitation to his audience, first to let the property industry in on what the team at Eurolink have been thinking about for some time. And secondly, a personal invitation for delegates to join him in open discussion about their own vision of the future and experiences of software to date.

Matthew will go on to discuss our view of the property technology sector, how it will evolve in the future and the opportunities for the property industry in collaboration, open standards and interoperability between people and companies.

“We all need technology to work as efficiently as possible for us and to make our lives easier, not more complicated. I can’t stress this enough, particularly when it comes to lettings,” says Matthew.

“I guess you have to assess where you are right now with your technology, and be honest with yourself about how complicated it is. Is your technology actually benefitting you and your clients, or is it just making your lives more difficult?

“A large part of progress and interoperability relies on a collaborative effort to establish industry technology standards. I’m appealing to those delegates who want to be part of the solution, rather than perpetuating the problem, to come and talk to us about possible innovations.”

“If you’re not taking your commitment to the future and technology seriously, you’re simply overseeing the slow demise of your business toward irrelevancy. The only way to avoid being left behind is to stay informed.

“You’ve got to consider the best way for you to stay ahead of your competitors and, hopefully, by the end of the discussion it should be clear that investing in technology should be at the forefront of your business agenda.”
