In addition to expanding its personnel, DIG has implemented three technology solutions to further enhance our competitive advantage, streamline our workflows, and create a more collaborative and efficient workplace. The technology solutions include a web and mobile property management platform that connects all of the processes and people involved in operating our portfolio and automates the workflow and information capture for all activities related to tenant service, asset & equipment maintenance, operational risk management and communications. DIG also implemented the number one platform for leasing and asset management to improve information flow and the speed of communication for all team members both inside and outside the organization related to leasing and asset management. Our most recent technology implementation involves investor management services which provides our investors with web-enabled information access helping promote transparency while allowing us to focus on driving investor returns.
