Leading real estate companies rely on HqO to provide first-class services to tenants
BOSTON, July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWS) – HqO, the only operating system with tenant experience for office buildings, has partnered with asset managers to manage over 13 million square feet of commercial property in Europe. This year alone, HqO acquired approximately 8 million square feet of new business in the UK and over 2 million square feet in France.
HqO is known for its partnerships with major industry players such as the Columbia Property Trust and the Vornado Realty Trust in the United States. In Europe, HqO partners with renowned UK brands such as JP Morgan, Land Securities Group and Grosvenor, as well as Starwood Capital Europe in Norway, Allianz Real Estate in France and Jamestown in the Netherlands.
“HqO is no stranger to the European market. Our technology is a powerful value engine for the CRE leaders here, “says Samuel Warren, Managing Director of HqO UK.” The tenant experience is driven by many trends, and our work with these leading landlords helps our clients develop exceptional strategies. What we’re really excited about is the feedback we get when landlords use our analytics tool to instantly gain powerful insights into how people interact with assets, programming and technology. ”
HqO’s partnerships with these landlords are significant. Grosvenor is one of the largest private landowners in the world with a presence in over 60 cities and is constantly looking for truly innovative ways to improve its tenant experience. A mixed-use portfolio combined with a rich real estate history of over 340 years means the company owns some of the finest office space in the London area.
JP Morgan, which has signed over 1.5 million square feet of its UK and European assets including the acclaimed Spitalfields Market, has a strong focus on retail and the open source version of the HqO app. Its customizable app receives 10,000 visitors per hour during peak hours, and it is connected to multiple local food vans and vendors with plans for further expansion.
HqO also partners with an investment fund and legal and main investment managers (LGIM), which manage one of the most extensive portfolios of properties in the UK. LGIM singled out the platform’s ability to deploy large-scale solutions and manage complexity as distinct from other tenant service providers. Other key European landlords using HqO’s cutting edge tenant technology include Endurance Land, IPUT Dublin and FORE Partnership.
“FORE Partnership is delighted to partner with HqO to provide tenants with the best possible tenant experience under our Glasgow Cadworks scheme,” said Giles Edwards, Deputy Director of FORE Partnership. “Cadworks will be the most advanced office building in Scotland and we see the HqO custom application as an ideal tool to educate and guide our employees on the key benefits that these technological advances will bring. In addition, in fact, we strongly believe that real estate can have a positive impact on society, both locally and more broadly. The HqO platform will be integral to us in realizing these key elements of our Cadworks vision, and we look forward to working together on this and future investments. ”
As part of HqO’s ongoing efforts to scale its platform globally and securely, the company has established data centers in the European Union to improve product performance and add another powerful layer of data security and compliance for European customers. With the HqO platform, these renters guarantee an edge in the ever-changing CRE landscape. The HqOS platform can manage all customer-centric technology tools in their buildings and more. By activating real connections between people and real estate, it enables data-driven decisions, delivers an exceptional tenant experience, and accelerates innovative asset strategies.
