Tenants using Mobile Access will be able to enter buildings, suites, and rooms with their phones, simplifying access management and security while offering touchless, hands-free interaction.
TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Lane, one of the world's leading workplace experience platforms, today announced it is unveiling a new Mobile Access feature to deliver a wide array of operational, experiential, and health and safety benefits to commercial property managers and their tenants. The new feature will complement their existing communications, resource bookings, data, and retail management functionality.
Designed to replace traditional fobs and keycards, Mobile Access allows tenants to enter buildings, suites, and rooms with their smartphones. By digitizing the way property managers manage the ins and outs of their building, Mobile Access allows for faster, easier, and safer access and identity management on the part of building teams, while tenants have one less thing to carry around in their pockets.
In a move towards more low-touch and touchless environments, Mobile Access also allows tenants to tap their phones at scanners or even use electronic leashing for a completely hands-free experience.
[Quote] "We're extremely excited about the Mobile Access feature roll-out," said Chris Long, Head of Product at Lane. "Access and identity are a huge aspect of managing large office towers, and offering a fully digital way to manage that saves hours and hours while tightening security in the process."
Some of the main operational and security benefits of Mobile Access include:
- No more lost fobs or time spent replacing them
- No more fob lending or the security breaches that result
- Granting, modifying, and revoking of access credentials without needing to collect plastic
- End-to-end, cloud-based encryption means buildings stay secure and tenant data stays safe
"Mobile Access isn't just great for property management, it's great for the tenants," adds Kofi Gyekye, Lane Cofounder and CPO. "Getting into your building or suite through your phone is way more convenient than having to hold onto an extra piece of plastic all the time. It's simpler, it's smarter, it's the way things should be."
Some of the main tenant experience benefits of Mobile Access include:
- Tenants can tap, twist, or experience fully hands-free (touchless) entry at specific building, suite, and room entryways
- One less thing for tenants to keep in their pockets
- Never getting locked out of the building because you forgot your keycard on your desk
- Accessing buildings across multiple locations around the world with the same device
- Accessing elevators, lockers, parking garages, secure documents, and more
Available for general adoption in 2021, Mobile Access will join Lane's existing suite of features as part of its mission to connect the entire workplace and transform it into a seamless ecosystem and thriving professional community.
