Building Engines Announces General Availability of Bengie™, The CRE Industry’s First Automated Chatbot

Bengie Revolutionizes Tenant Experience Technology

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

Building Engines™, the commercial real estate (CRE) industry’s innovation leader for property management solutions, today announced the general availability of Bengie™, the industry’s first chatbot, to Building Engines clients.

Bengie provides the easiest way possible for tenants to connect with buildings and management teams on mobile and desktop devices. Because Bengie works within the messaging tools people already use every day, tenant users will no longer need to wade through complicated web forms or download additional mobile apps in order to get the service and information they need in the buildings they occupy. Instead, Bengie transforms messaging tools like Text/SMS and Slack into the easiest, most intuitive, tenant engagement tools available. With Bengie, tenants already have the only apps they need for improved communications and a superior user experience.

Tasks such as initiating service requests, pre-registering visitors, and accessing building information are faster and simpler than ever with Bengie. When tenants can confidently and easily serve themselves, property management teams can focus on other high-value, customer interactions.

Anyone who knows how to send a text message can use Bengie to:

  • Request service for their space or report something they notice in the building
  • Register visitors for pre-authorized access to the building 
  • Request building information, forms and other items often found in tenant handbooks 
  • Receive important announcements from building management

The general availability of Bengie follows a successful beta test in late 2018 and early 2019.

“We are delighted to work with Building Engines, one of the most innovative technology firms in the CRE industry,” said Mark Dukes, Vice President, Asset Management at DOC REIT. “We believe that Bengie will transform the tenant experience, aligning it with the messaging technology that tenants use every day.”

Availability

Bengie is now generally available to current Building Engines users and supports Slack, the popular business collaboration messaging app. Bengie will soon be available via Text/SMS as well. Bengie is integrated and included with every Building Engines license at no additional charge.
