Investa wins Best Internal Innovation award for its 360AI program

Investa is proud to announce it has been awarded the title of Best Internal Innovation in the 2020 AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies list. 

The prestigious list was published in today’s Australian Financial Review and Boss Magazine, recognising Investa for its data, AI and decision intelligence project, 360AI.A rigorous process was used to assess more than 600 organisations from across Australia and New Zealand.

Investa was also honoured to take the second position in the Property, Construction and Transport category.

As part of Investa’s submission its innovation culture, strategy, resources and process, as well as the 360AI project were evaluated. 

“We are honoured to have been recognised for the Best Internal Innovation in Australia and New Zealand,” said Emily Lee-Waldao, Group Executive Innovation & Brand.

“It’s truly a testament to the commitment of our entire business, who have embraced our innovation agenda and enabled us to organically build our capability, while delivering cutting edge projects.
“360AI is a powerful data, AI and decision intelligence program that amplifies the scale, depth and intelligence of the insights we glean from data. The program is helping us solve an increasing challenge for many businesses - how do we leverage AI technology and human insight to make faster, better decisions that enable us to stay ahead of the curve,” she continued.  

360AI allows Investa to maximise the returns it delivers to investors and building owners, as well as delivering superior service to its tenants by generating proprietary analytics models that amplify the scale, depth and intelligence of the insights gleaned from data. “We are thrilled that our work in decision intelligence, advanced analytics and AI in property has been recognised,” said Joanna Marsh, General Manager Innovation & Strategic Projects.

“We can see a future where our human experience and expertise is augmented by artificial intelligence to create places that our tenants love and properties that deliver performance for our capital partners."
