Over his nearly 20 years at Savills, Patrick has consistently and tirelessly brought an innovative vision to any product or service line on which he works. Starting as a researcher and broker after the 2001 dot-com crash, Patrick sought ways to bring better technology to the brokerage business. As a member of the Savills C-suite and overseeing all client technologies and information technology at the firm, Patrick’s North Star is utilizing the best technologies tools in the most straightforward manner. An example of this is when, in 2018 and under Patrick’s leadership, Savills began the customization of its Salesforce instance, known in-house as the Savills CRM. In tandem, Savills built a proprietary tool for its brokers and clients to better visualize portfolio data, named Knowledge Cubed. Fast forward to 2020, Savills understood the dire need for brokers and occupiers to have the capability to rapidly access building stacking plans and data in a mobile-first environment. Savills built a first-of-its-kind iOS application, Stacker.
Now in 2021, Savills Digital Services, through API connections, built a powerful engine of innovation with the Savills CRM as the central pillar in both connecting Knowledge Cubed and Stacker to this system. Across these tools, at any moment, brokers can access historical transactions, market information, comps, and space analysis, as well as stacking plans, asset KPIs, and shared occupier information.
