Savills Studley Knowledge^3 Wins Global Innovator Award

10 January 2018

Savills Studley, the leading commercial real estate firm specializing in tenant advisory services, announced that its occupier technology platform Knowledge3 Powered by LEVERTON has won the 2017 H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator’s Award presented by CoreNet Global, the world’s leading professional association for corporate real estate (CRE) and workplace executives, service providers and economic developers.

This joint platform delivers proprietary data visualizations and analytics using LEVERTON’s artificial intelligence-powered data extraction and mapping system in Savills Studley’s proprietary customizable “app” environment, known as Knowledge3 (pronounced “knowledge cubed”). Knowledge3 Powered by LEVERTON allows large end-users of real estate to import vast stores of property-related documents such as leases and convert the collected data into dynamic visualizations that generate actionable insights across their portfolios. Knowledge3’s modular design offers maximum customization capability while ensuring integration with the most innovative and useful technologies such as LEVERTON. 

Patrick McGrath, Head of Client Technology Systems for Savills Studley, developed the Knowledge3 platform alongside Savills Studley Managing Directors Bryan Ezell and Doug Jamieson.

“LEVERTON’s text recognition and field mapping technology eliminates months of potential manual data entry and enables end-users to spend more time exploring data and testing hypotheses, ultimately capturing unique value creation opportunities,” said McGrath. “We are thrilled to have collaborated with LEVERTON on this innovative platform since Knowledge3 Powered by LEVERTON will unlock tremendous potential for CRE occupiers.”

“Savills Studley’s specialization in tenant advisory services gives the firm a clear advantage to advance the frontier of innovation in occupier technology,” Abhinav Somani, Chief Revenue Officer of LEVERTON. “Savills Studley’s ability to complement structured data with both context and proven frameworks, derived from the firm’s depth of experience in lease administration, makes a compelling value proposition for global real estate occupiers and makes its Knowledge3 platform the ideal application for our technology. We look forward to continuing to develop our innovation partnership with Savills and Savills Studley.”

The Global Innovator's Award recognizes excellence and innovation in CRE. Since 2000, the award has honored the "game changers" in CRE—those individuals and companies whose work, ideas and best practices elevate its practice. Savills Studley and LEVERTON were awarded this distinction at CoreNet Global's North America Summit in Seattle on November 7th, 2017, following a presentation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in July 2017.
