Proximity’s workspace management platform helps streamline day-to-day operations and on-premises experiences across workplaces, coworking spaces and flexible offices. A new integration with Brivo connects custom user permissions from the Proximity platform to Brivo’s cloud-based access management system. Workspace users can unlock doors to buildings and offices secured with Brivo using Proximity’s mobile app, and digital key access automatically ends when a subscription expires or a reservation. The Proximity and Brivo integration enables greater flexibility and reduced overhead for workspace managers who use Brivo technology and also need a solution for office booking, meeting room management, on-site records or space usage reports.
As workplaces increasingly shift to hybrid models, organizations are tasked with managing the desktop experience for employees who may no longer have a dedicated desk or office where they work every day. In some cases, employees can now also work from a company office other than the head office, a model that is gaining popularity.
“Where and how we work becomes more flexible and more distributed,” says Proximity CEO Josh freed. “In this changing world of work, it is very difficult to allocate space and understand when and where employees actually show up in an office. Safety, security and getting a clear picture of the use of assets are currently the top priorities for organizations. “
Brivo secures over 300 million square feet of real estate for over 44,500 commercial accounts in over 70,000 buildings. The company sells technology through authorized resellers in 42 countries who perform professional installations for real estate projects of all sizes.
“Our partnership with Brivo will create an easier onboarding experience for our customers who want or have cloud technology from Brivo and is part of Proximity’s initiative to extend our integrations with better workplace products,” says Freed.
Proximity also works with hundreds of coworking spaces. With more and more hybrid or fully remote workplaces, many workers rely on flexible subscriptions or passes to access a private and professional workspace outside of the home. Coworking spaces can be an ideal solution for those who still want to have office equipment and in-person interactions at work, but who may have left a corporate office, no longer have an office. company or wish to reduce travel times.
“Access management is the foundation for creating a hybrid work environment,” says Steve VanTill, founder and CEO of Brivo. “We’re excited to partner with Proximity to deliver a streamlined user experience that sets a new standard for flexible space, coworking and workplace management.”
User registration data from site visits to over 400 coworking and flex spaces on the Proximity platform shows that October 2021 was the highest usage month on the network since march 2020. With a peak of 68,846 on-site registrations, the increase is more than 13 times greater than the lowest month of use near the start of the pandemic.
“We’ve added a number of new customers during this time,” Freed says. “This spike is part of our growth, but overall we’ve seen a steady increase in space use from March of this year through November. Meeting room and private phone booth reservations match. also to this trend with significant increases from April to November.”
