Electronic Tenant® Solutions has substantially enhanced its online reservations dashboard for conference room and shared amenities. An easy-to-use online interface for both tenant and management for seamless scheduling, the updated app bolsters the on-demand experience while easing management’s administrative burden.
No doubt office amenities are a hot commodity. While the focus, in the wake of the Great Recession, has been on keeping costs down and delivering low bottom lines to tenants, that’s giving way to differentiation through quality, making the building brand essential currency in today’s marketplace.
Scheduling Shared Amenities Gets Easier with Improved Reservations App
Whether a property has shared conference rooms, freight elevators, roof deck, bowling lanes – amenity rich atmospheres that tenants can easily schedule is important to tenants; the ability to serve this demand is equally as important for management. ETS’ enhanced Conference Room Management aims to satisfy both. With a plethora of new features for tenants, the app allows for seamless scheduling of shared resources.

A comprehensive amenity package can create premium value in a property – including the tools that support them. See what’s behind the growing importance of shared amenities. In fact, when upgrading office buildings, owners should expect to dedicate from 10 percent to more than 12 percent of their portfolios to amenity space, depending on the level of tenants they are looking to attract. Traditionally, only 3 percent of space is dedicated to amenities.
“Through a unique set of amenities is just one factor in an extremely complex market, investment in amenities can make the difference between a vibrant, productive property and one facing vacancies.”
