Hines invests in digital ecosystem
Hines has plans to invest in a new digital ecosystem that makes it easier to access buildings, amenities and experiences while generating more in-depth insights about building utilization and client satisfaction.
Centering on employee experience, the platform gives users the ability to access the building via a mobile pass on their smartphones or smartwatches, book meeting and event spaces or desks, order food at cafes and restaurants, reserve on-site fitness classes, receive information about the building and events and more via a new Hines app. The digital platform also gives clients and investors a dashboard with insights into building performance and satisfaction via occupancy data, employee satisfaction surveys and ESG metrics.
The new technology is being launched this fall at eight buildings across five cities: Salesforce Tower in Chicago; 1144 15th Street in Denver; 717 Texas Ave in Houston; the Kearns Building in Salt Lake City; and CIBC Square, T3 Bayside and
