Comfy, a leading provider of workplace apps, is extending its international reach by partnering with one of Australia’s biggest commercial property groups, Charter Hall. Beginning with 1.2 million square feet in four buildings throughout Sydney and Brisbane, the Comfy solution will be introduced to the tenants of Charter Hall‘s portfolio.
A Comfy installation at Charter Hall’s Sydney corporate headquarters last year led to impressive results, enough to offer the solutions to tenants. Property owners worldwide are scrambling to attract and keep tenants using workplace technology focused on people.
“Like Charter Hall, Comfy is committed to putting people at the center of our work and making the office of the future a reality today,” said Andrew Krioukov, CEO and Co-founder of Comfy. “As Comfy continues to prove to be the world’s leading must-have workplace experience app, Australia is an increasingly important international market for us. We’re thrilled to work with Charter Hall to deliver an exceptional tenant experience.”
Comfy works with Fortune 1000 companies in six different countries since its founding in the San Francisco Bay area in 2012. Its mission is to create workplace experiences where employees are empowered and able to communicate with not just people, but places through smart technology. For example, Comfy is the first and only personal workplace app designed to give on-demand temperature controls to individuals. Recently, it has grown its list of offerings to include lighting, room booking and work requests.
This expansion with Charter Hall is hot on the heels of the announcement a few weeks ago of Works with Comfy, a new ecosystem of partnerships with leaders in the spaces of automated buildings, occupancy sensing, lighting, and indoor positioning.
Charter Hall’s Innovation Lead – Office, Craig Rodgers, explained how Comfy’s technology was aiding the company’s understanding of the emerging dynamic of smart buildings and how they can offer accurate and useful data for connected tenant customer experiences.
“As a productivity partner of choice, Charter Hall is committed to enhancing our tenant customer experiences through innovative workplace solutions. Comfy is a great example of how we are using leading technology to improve customer experiences in the workplace.
“As one of Australia’s largest owners and managers of CBD office assets, we focus heavily on being the workplace experience provider of choice by putting our customers at the heart of every decision we make.
“Comfy is a game changer in the way we manage one aspect of the occupant experience in our buildings and provides our tenant customers and their people the opportunity to choose the most comfortable working environment for themselves,” Rodgers added.
Comfy will be available to Charter Hall’s tenants at 1 Martin Place and 2 Market Street in Sydney, 65 Berry Street in North Sydney, and 175 Eagle Street in Brisbane at first.
