Technology & Security
ISO 27001 Certification
Preston Rowe Paterson has been awarded ISO 27001 certification. Recognised as the international standard for best practices in information security management systems (ISMS), the ISO 27001 certification clearly demonstrates PRP’s commitment to providing their customers with the highest level of information security management.
ISO 27001 certification recognises PRP’s impeccable security standards and continues to reassure our customers, shareholders and business partners that we prioritise protection of their data.
ISO 27001 is a stringent international standard published jointly by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electro Technical Commission (IEC). ISO 27001 mandates controls to establish, maintain, certify, and ensure continual improvement of an ISMS. Certified organisations have established protocols to protect information assets from any cyber threats such as criminal activity, fraud, user errors and external parties.
Our latest innovation is a brand new concept developed by Preston Rowe Paterson – International Valuers and Consultants.
We call it Speak-Val™.
Speak-Val™ allows you hear key findings, warnings and alerts about a property directly from the valuer in an innovative 2-3 minute video presentation that you can view or listen to at your convenience.

For two years in a row, Preston Rowe Paterson have been recognised by both of Australia’s leading property professional bodies for their Innovation.
In 2020, PRP were the proud winners of the (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveryors) ‘Innovation’ Award for our Occupant Assisted Inspection App in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and finalists in the API (Australian Property Institute) ‘Innovaton in Property’ award. 2021 saw PRP become a finalist in the RICS ‘Innovation’ Award again for Speak-Val™.
Preston Rowe Paterson (PRP) has launched an exciting new software application to assist its teams throughout Australia and New Zealand. The client interactive technology, known as PRP Assist, allows owners, tenants, associated professionals, and clients to directly upload requested documentation and relevant information to the valuer undertaking any property valuation assignment.
PRP Assist also provides a secure pathway for Residential, Commercial & Retail occupiers to provide information during COVID-19 Lockdowns or restrictions. We had previously been utilising a third party to provide geocoded photographs and property information. However, with our recently acquired ISO 27001 Data Security certification, it was possible and considered necessary to develop our own application in-house to ensure a seamless end to end experience for our clients across all property types.
In Australia there has been widespread acceptance and adoption of this technology throughout the many lockdown events that our trans-Tasman colleagues have had to endure. The technology is equally applicable to the New Zealand market albeit there has not been the requirement for this to be adopted considering the reduced lock down experience we have had.
