Building Engines, HqO Partner for Building Operations Solutions

Boston-based building operations platform Building Engines has announced a new partnership with HqO, an end-to-end tenant experience provider for office buildings.

The partnership will deliver a new unified building operations and tenant experience solution for the CRE industry. The integration of Building Engines’ platform with the HqOS Tenant Experience Platform brings together two critical aspects of a property’s foundation—building operations and tenant experience. The partnership will enable CRE owners and operators to offer a holistic digital experience for tenants.

“In addition to helping support the return to the office, our customers are looking to Building Engines to help leverage the investments they are making in other technologies as well as to simplify and improve the user-experience,” said Scott Sidman, EVP of Business and Corporate Development at Building Engines. “This partnership and integration are a great example of the power of open systems and cooperative companies coming together in the best interests of the customer. Enabling customers to improve service delivery through Building Engines’ best-in-class operating platform, combined with HqO’s premier tenant engagement capabilities marks an ideal moment for a digital-forward, open API solution that fully connects the tenant and property management team.”

The Building Engines-HqO partnership is supported through Building Engines’ Partner Network, a growing building operations ecosystem for commercial real estate.
