We redesigned HqO — Welcome to the future of Tenant Experience Software

on May 28, 2019 9:00:00 AM By | Ruben Sanchez | 0 Comments | Product Updates
Our app redesign provides tenants with visual enhancements and tools designed to help discover the building programming that matters most. Homepage content is now grouped by category, and you can now scroll through distinctly labeled sections of the homepage. These sections are aligned to important programming within the building or campus. On the newly redesigned “Discover” page you can filter content by type or search using keywords. Additionally, RSVPs for future events now appear in a personal drawer. The homepage redesign makes the mobile experience even more enjoyable and user friendly.

Simplify Space Reservations Within Your Commercial Property Using HqO

on May 28, 2019 8:55:00 AM By | Eric O'Brien | 0 Comments |
Space booking through the HqO app is a simple way for property teams to promote reservable space on-site and manage tenant requests. By using the “Reserve space” tool, tenants have the ability to select time slots for various spaces such as conference rooms. Instead of using another website, e-mail or sign-up sheet for this purpose, space reservation requests are now centralized within the HqO tenant experience platform. The space booking feature within HqO is designed to increase efficiency to communication and coordinate with tenant employees and effectively promote all reservable amenities to tenant employees. User Experience (HqO mobile app) Tenant employees may be unaware of a property’s complete list of amenities. General information and availability of reservable amenities are now a part of the HqO mobile app. On the HqO home screen you will see the “Reserve space” icon in the menu. From there, tenant employees can browse through the reservable space options (anything from a conference room, roof deck, bowling alley, or loading dock). Each space listing shows displays capacity as well as a short description beneath.   By selecting the various reservable spaces, tenants can drill into further relevant information about each space such as: ● Capacity ● Operational hours of the space ● Amenities (TV, Projector, WIFI) ● Potential fees
