JLL’s Enterprise App JiLL Acts as an Admin for Every Employee

JLL recently introduced JiLL, an AI-powered, conversational platform that can help employees streamline their work and be more productive. Users can use voice or text to converse with the app via their smart phones and simplify time-consuming daily tasks such as setting up meetings, finding colleagues, looking up lunch menus or shuttle schedules, filing service requests or finding a desk or conference room.

While tens of millions of consumers benefit from smart speakers and smartphone assistants at home and on the go, this category of virtual enterprise assistants is largely missing in the workplace. With JiLL, enterprises can empower their workforces by providing everyone an enterprise admin in their pocket. Users can complete everyday office tasks the same way they use voice interfaces at home. Examples include: “Hey JiLL, book a weekly meeting with my team,” or “Hey JiLL, find me an open desk on the 3rd floor this afternoon.”

“Consumers feel empowered in centrally managing their digital experiences at home and on the go. However, at work, simple tasks are siloed and can be frustrating,” said Vinay Goel, Chief Digital Product Officer, JLL. “JiLL leverages JLL’s vast datasets about buildings, user interactions and transactions with physical spaces to provide a personalized and intelligent conversational interface that matches employees’ consumer experiences. Over time, we expect JiLL to become an essential platform for hundreds of skills that help employees improve their daily productivity.”

JiLL is being piloted by clients this summer and will be generally available later this year to U.S. customers.

“We understand that our success is linked to attracting and retaining talent,” said Jim Pazzaglia, director-Global Business Services P&G, which plans to pilot JiLL in the coming months. “Providing digital technologies that reduce employee friction points and resemble the functionality our employees are accustomed to using outside of work helps grow our organizational productivity.”

JiLL is the first product launched by JLL Labs, JLL’s in-house, global network of software engineers and product experts developing innovative and commercially strategic proptech products. JLL Labs is another example of the company’s commitment to technology leadership and complements its investments in the broader proptech industry through the JLL Spark Global Venture Fund.

JiLL was developed in the JLL Labs Silicon Valley hub in Menlo Park, California. JiLL uses proprietary data and insights from JLL’s experience with clients and physical spaces, and combines them with Google Cloud Solutions technology, including Google Cloud Platform, Dialogflow and Kubernetes containers.

“There is a tremendous appetite from the world’s enterprises to adopt AI capabilities in all parts of their businesses,” said Rob Enslin, president at Google Cloud. “It’s exciting to see businesses with rich histories like JLL developing new ways to bring AI to the market. We’re delighted that JLL has selected Google Cloud’s expertise and knowledge in AI to develop JiLL and we look forward to partnering to drive digital transformation both within JLL and their expansive customer base.”

“Companies will benefit from out-of-the box plug and play connectivity across enterprise systems and apps like calendars, room booking systems, service request systems, and facilities occupancy sensors and utilization management systems,” said JLL’s Goel.  “They can onboard users, specify organizational parameters and policies and be up and running quickly.  As JiLL acquires new abilities, enterprises can automatically benefit. We expect to continuously add new skills to the app and open the platform to third-party capabilities as well.”
