Site 1001 is pleased to announce our third award of 2019. Following a Top 50 Smart Building Technology Award and a Best Tech Startup Award, the Skylight Building Performance and Operations Platform has now received the 2019 TechConnect Innovation Award. Previous recognition also included 2018 Outstanding Emerging Technology Company and 50 Hottest Technologies Companies.

The TechConnect Innovation Award is given to top technologies as ranked by the TechConnect Corporate & Investment Partner Committee based on the potential positive impact the submitted technology will have on a specific industry sector. Innovations are submitted from global academic technology transfer offices, early-stage companies, small business innovative research (SBIR) awardees, and government and corporate research laboratories. A list of all winners can be found here.

The Skylight platform combines core building information, live building systems, sensors and “people-generated” information like work requests and comments, with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to help make buildings truly “smart.” Property investors, owners, and managers tap Skylight-powered apps to reduce unplanned maintenance and downtime, lower operational costs, increase asset longevity and performance, maximize guest/tenant experience and increase a property’s value. Skylight customers include major hotel operators, casino/resort properties, performing arts centers, mixed-use commercial, and office building owners.
