The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors has launched a new Tech Affiliate Programme.
The programme aims to give firms the opportunity to build their profile and promote the impact of proptech on surveying.
Dan Hughes, director, data and information product management at RICS, said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Tech Affiliate Program, which gives companies the chance to build a professional profile and receive annual benefits while helping to increase awareness of the impact technology has on the industry.
“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.
“Being part of the TAP represents a business’ commitment to the adoption of our professional standards and being part of industry’s development as technology becomes increasingly important.”
