Due to constantly developing tenant and office building needs, the adoption of proptech and technology partnerships has become a necessity in a world adjusting to rapidly evolving work models. Tenant engagement tools — which include mobile landlord apps, tenant communication apps, digital amenities, and more — not only help landlords and property teams bring new life to the overall building experience, but also reinforce a competitive advantage in a shifting industry. Additionally, many proptech companies and tenant apps are available in the market to help establish a more customer-centric model for the commercial real estate (CRE) industry.
Now more than ever, landlords and property teams need to focus on making the employee’s time in the office safer, more efficient, and more valuable in order to attract and retain talent. A critical component in doing this is bridging the gap between the physical office and the digital workplaces in order to create omnichannel office experiences, while also connecting employees in a way that is both engaging and thoughtful. As part of the HqOS operating system, our growing Marketplace of best-in-class technology partners can help aggregate numerous technology solutions for any building in our end-to-end tenant engagement platform. Landlords and property teams can then choose to activate partners and features that meet their building’s specific needs.
