Will Martin: What Can We Learn from CoreNet Global Summit?

Will Martin, Director of Real Estate and Facilities for Health Management Systems, attends the CoreNet Global Summit conference to network up with people as well as see what is going on with technology in the industry. It enables him to stay current on the newest in real estate and discovers out what his peers are finding useful.

He dives into detail about his current role at a midsized company and how his experience working for a large company prepared him to be successful in a smaller setting. In the larger corporate environment, he worked with a lot of square footage and a lot of people and he learned to see different perspectives from that role.

In a smaller company, you don’t need troves of data. You just need to optimize your real estate. Because of this, he focuses on being simple and effective and finding technology that people will actually use rather than just doing things just for the sake of doing them.

Will wants to decisions based on data and wants the data to drive what he is doing, because if it doesn’t the data is truly useless. Will also gives us insight into technology he sees as valuable for his role and his team. It isn’t just about the customer, but also about the team behind the technology. Will looks for technology that is effective on both sides and ensures that the tools help his team communicate effectively.
