We were delighted to welcome more than 80 people to the North West launch event for IDM Business - our game-changing product which brings unrivalled data insights to investment decision-making in the built environment.
The event, kindly hosted by our advisers KPMG Acceleris at their flagship Manchester office at One St Peter's Square, featured a lively panel discussion on the importance of using accurate, up-to-date data to support major investment decisions. We were thrilled to be joined by some leading players from the region’s real estate community for the debate, with Phil Mayall, Development Director at Muse Developments, and Iain Jenkinson, who heads CBRE's UK Planning team, joining our CEO, Neil Murray, on the panel.
Neil says "It was great to hear from Phil and Iain about how critical high quality, data-driven insight is to their organisations, and how it will continue to inform their thinking. As the innovation and investment landscape continues to evolve, with now a new Prime Minister and Michael Gove restored as Secretary of State for Levelling Up, having the right information available to derisk decision-making is more important than ever.
"The event was also a great opportunity to showcase IDM Business to the audience - we believe the product is unrivalled in its ability to provide an incredibly detailed and accurate picture of a local area's business base, both now and looking forward. “If you’re a local authority, the insights that IDM Business delivers enable informed policy strategies and if you're a property developer it underpins key ‘buy’, ‘sell’ and 'hold’ decisions on assets."
