House of Hiranandani: Prashin Jhobalia, VP Marketing Strategy
Cutting-edge, ground-breaking technology has always been at the forefront when it comes to creating a paradigm shift; so technological advancements will act as the backbone of the real estate sector, during this time of the pandemic, which has indeed changed the way the sector is adopting strategies for customer outreach.

We have realized how useful advanced 3D modelling and virtual reality is in continuing digital property marketing.
Virtual site visits and AI enabled technologies have helped us close new deals and retain our old clients, without coming in contact with anyone, thereby ensuring the safety of new clients and listing representatives. We are available on social media platforms and are highly active digitally to connect with our audiences and employees.

We understand the importance of empathy during these times of the pandemic and all our practises towards customers come with convenience and patience. At the same time, we understand that effective planning and smart adoption of technologies can minimize its impact on the real estate sector in India.

As part of our safety and preventive measures, we are dissuading direct interactions among our customers and employees. In the interest of all our stakeholders and the society, social distancing is strictly followed at all our offices and project sites. In order to ensure business functions at a normal pace or with the least impact, we are promoting our projects through digital enablers for the domestic and international prospects. It is working well, and we plan to continue in this manner until things return to normal.
