“The first step to creating a positive experience for tenants, is to understand that their expectations have changed,” explained Sarah Fisher, Director of Marketing and Communications at Building Engines. “Tenants want to be able to access service requests, contact management and review building and emergency information online and in real time. This survey was about setting a benchmark for where the industry is today and establishing best practices for meeting those expectations.” The release of the Survey Report represents Building Engines’ continuing commitment to customer and market-driven research and product development.
