WIN and In-telligent Sign Partnership to Enable Better Communication with Building Tenants
BURR RIDGE, Ill. (June 6, 2016) — Today, WIN, a leading distributed antenna systems (DAS) integrator, announced its partnership with In-telligent, a transformative mass notification mobile application. This partnership will allow property owners to facilitate quicker, more effective communication with their tenants, employees and visitors — especially in regards to life-safety events.
The In-telligent app allows for timely dissemination of all building communications, including emergency alerts surrounding events like fires, active shooters and missing persons. For the first time, property managers can efficiently issue announcements, promotional messaging and other updates directly to all building occupants. The use of smart building technologies like the In-telligent app is essential for improving communications and increasing tenant satisfaction.
With the increasing use of smart building technologies comes an increased need for reliable in-building connectivity. In today’s connected world, in-building connectivity problems are widespread due to the heavy use of cell service in major metropolitan areas. WIN’s DAS solutions help improve poor cell signal in buildings, allowing them to effectively incorporate smart technologies like In-telligent. WIN also has the capability to customize a building’s infrastructure to support enhanced technologies like BLE emitters and iBeacons, which assist with geofencing and geotargeting.
“Mobile usage is no longer a luxury in our modern world. It’s a necessity. The demand for good cell service is only going to get stronger as the years progress, so connectivity matters. As property owners look to implement smart technologies, they have to start with connectivity. It’s vital for property owners to have proper in-building cell signal to keep their tenants around,” said WIN’s CEO, Thomas K. Crotty.
A connected world also allows information to be transmitted more efficiently. “In the event of an emergency, delivering information quickly and efficiently is a matter of life or death. In-telligent ensures that building owners can quickly and easily deliver messages that will be noticed by the people most impacted. When apps are powered by reliable connectivity, the property’s community becomes safer, more informed and more content,” said Allan C. Sutherland, president and CEO of In-telligent.
Besides ensuring a satisfying relationship between building owners and their tenants, the partnership also facilitates a unique funding model that allows building owners to provide connectivity to their tenants without needing to take on the entire cost of the DAS installation. Building owners should also expect to see a significant reduction in their property and casualty insurance premiums, due to the increased safety that the In-telligent app provides.
