IO+ operates a software business engaged in the development of advanced artificial intelligence (“AI”) products with a particular focus on the real estate market. IO+ intends to replace the current human-centric, intricate, expensive paper-based, and outdated processes involved in the residential and commercial real estate market with a streamlined, fully digital, end-to-end platform based on AI agents.

IO+ offers a comprehensive platform designed to equip its residential and commercial AI-based real estate agents with the tools needed to provide services to both sellers and buyers. IO+’s platform features an integrated suite of cloud-based software tailored specifically for the real estate industry. This suite covers essential functions such as customer relationship management, marketing, and client service, enhancing its core AI-driven brokerage services.

With the global real estate market valued at approximately US$10.5 trillion in 2022 and expected to grow due to urbanization and increasing population, the application of AI can streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve customer experiences through personalized recommendations and 24/7 service. AI can analyse vast amounts of data to identify trends, optimise pricing strategies, and target potential buyers more effectively than traditional methods. This technological edge will enable the Company to adapt swiftly to market changes, ensure higher transaction success rates, and maintain a competitive advantage in a highly dynamic and lucrative industry.

Michael Edwards, Executive Chairman of Flex Labs, commented: “Artificial Intelligence is already fundamentally re-shaping our world.  It will impact every human on this planet in every industry.   The core value proposition of AI is that it can fundamentally transform the economics of human based capital intensive industries.   The real estate market, valued at over US$10.5 trillion globally, presents a massive opportunity for this type of disruption. By harnessing the power of AI, we aim to redefine how properties are bought and sold, offering unparalleled service and accuracy that sets a new standard in the industry. Our vision is to create a seamless, intelligent real estate experience that benefits both buyers and sellers, leveraging the full potential of AI to drive growth and innovation.”
