How Technology is Disrupting the Property Management Space

How Technology is Disrupting the Property Management Space

Property management is something which is becoming more and more important in the modern age. Commercial space is becoming more and more necessary, as the workforce has well and truly shifted to office work vs. warehouse. Meaning modern, advanced, office spaces need to be properly developed and managed to match this development. Technology is, therefore, being produced to actively match this forward momentum, even for more complex issues such as disputes that require a Party Wall Act surveyor

So, with that in mind, here are the best ways the property management space is being disrupted by technology in 2020.

Security

With many businesses having multiple computers, valuable and other technology in their office space it is important to improve security measures for this reason. However, tracking who comes in and out of spaces, ensuring tight door security and even a security officer is a vital factor for consideration; even for property managers.

Ways that technology is improving security measures in property management involves security tags and passes, improved CCTV function, and even electronic security locks on all doors. So, if someone does enter any door, it is always recorded and checkable for suspicious activity. All of this has to be monitored by humans, of course, but it is one step closer to a fully secure office space. And as property managers, this is an important promise to make and keep.

Delivery

Parcel delivery is a big chance for lost items and theft to run rampant. Especially if delivery is occurring in a busy office space where anyone can claim a parcel as their own. Ensuring this is done to a more secure and consistent standard as a property management team is extremely important. Technology is enhancing this with a locker system controlled by apps. This way, deliveries and parcels can be securely locked away in the appropriate company locker and only picked up by someone with remote, app, access to these lockers.

Of course, such tech may not enter every office space in the next five years. But, as we spend more time at work and delivery to these locations becomes more and more the norm, it will start to become much more frequent to see.

Cycle Schemes

Commuting to a city-centre office is getting easier and easier. But, the fact of the matter is that cycling is becoming a much more common occurrence. Storage facilities, shower capabilities, lockers and the like are all fairly common ways to meet these demands in property management. However, technology is also rising to meet this challenge.

This includes cycle repair pods, performance measures and even cycle to work schemes. Some of these need to be supported by the employer themselves, but can also be a great way that technology supports what commercial property managers have to offer.

And there you have it! All of the amazing ways that technology is going to disrupt and change the property management space in the New Year are yet to be seen, but these are … Read More..
