On January 12, workplace management software provider, Proximity announced it is partnering with Brivo, a premier provider of cloud-based access management and building technologies. Brivo has provided smart building and security solutions for over 70,000 buildings on a global scale. It is also the preferred partner for asset managers and enterprise companies for large-scale operations.
On the other hand, Proximity offers smart workplace management solutions to streamline everyday operations and on-premise experiences in workplaces, flex offices, and co-working spaces. Following the partnership with Brivo, a new integration will enable custom user permissions in Proximity to be connected to the cloud-based access management system in Brivo. With Proximity’s mobile application, office-goers will be able to unlock Brivo-enabled doors and access systems. The new integration will deliver improved flexibility and a reduced workload for workspace managers using Brivo. It will also simplify desk booking, check-ins, and meeting room management.
As hybrid working models become the norm, office managers are increasingly having to manage workplace experiences for employees who no longer work at a dedicated desk. On some occasions, employees may now be working from multiple office locations.
"Where and how we work is becoming more flexible and more distributed. In this evolving world of work, it's very challenging to allocate space and understand when and where employees are actually showing up to an office. Security, safety, and gaining a clear picture of asset usage are top priorities for organizations right now. Our partnership with Brivo will create an easier onboarding experience for our customers who want or have Brivo's cloud technology and is part of Proximity's initiative to expand our integrations with best-in-class workplace products."
- Proximity CEO Josh Freed
"Access management is the foundation for enabling a hybrid work environment. We're excited to partner with Proximity to deliver a simplified user experience that sets a new standard for flexible space, coworking, and workplace management."
- Steve Van Till, Founder and CEO of Brivo
Proximity’s user data from more than 400 coworking spaces showed that October 2020 registered as the highest month of usage across Proximity’s network since March 2020.
