The partnership will support landlord clients and prospective occupiers and investors with an experience that will deliver 360-degree virtual tours of offices.The development between CBRE and Virtual Walkthrough means that customers will have the chance to save time by cutting back on the number of visits to make property inspections. Virtual Walkthrough’s latest project comes after the firm successfully helped an online estate agent to feature an open house on Facebook in March 2015, while it went on to support a luxury property developer with online tours for around 200 premium properties in the summer. Due to the nature of the CBRE campaign, the companies are anticipating to “significantly speed up the sales cycle”. The office leasing deal with Virtual Walkthrough is exclusive for the next two years and content can be viewed on mobile devices in addition to PCs. Richard Smart, senior director and head of West End office leasing, CBRE, said: “At CBRE we are continually seeking to adopt new and innovative ways in which we market commercial properties on behalf of our clients. “As consumers, we’re seeing a transformation across so many sectors thanks to digital advancements and commercial property should be no different.”
