One of New York’s most influential landlords, Rudin Management, got into the PropTech biz in 2016 when they founded Prescriptive Data in 2016. Their flagship product, called Nantum, was billed as an operating system for buildings and used machine learning to help turn building data into insights for building operators.
Yesterday at the Realcomm conference in Las Vegas the Prescriptive Data team unveiled their latest product in the Nantum line, The Nantum Tenant Fractal App. This new product allows tenants to manage guests, expedite security and access, reserve rooms and amenities and order food and beverages, all from their personal smartphone. Nantum TFA will also give tenants unique access to the building management through issue reporting and HVAC preferences.
Now tenants will benefit from the insights that Nantum learns just like the managers and owners did from the original building software. John Gilbert, EVP and COO at Rudin Management explained, “The Nantum Tenant Fractal App, and the data it captures, fundamentally changes our relationship with our tenants – more than being landlord, we can now deliver data and insights to our tenants to help them increase the health, wellness, and productivity of their employees.”
Other large NYC landlords have also created digital tools to empower their tenants. Tishman Speyer launched their suite of wellness services called Zo early last year. But, when it comes to connecting a building, its operations crew, and its tenants, Rudin’s Prescriptive Data is blazing a trail. Their Nantum TFA app will debut at Dock 72 at Brooklyn Navy Yard, a building co-developed by Rudin and Boston Properties with WeWork as the anchor tenant.
According to Prescriptive Data, Dock 72 will be the first smart building to combine data from core and shell, enterprise, and employee experience into a single integrated platform, aggregating and analyzing data from nearly all of its systems including BMS, IoT sensors, access control, guest management, food and beverage, local transportation, gym, and a conference center. With the Nantum TFA app they hope to create a seamless operator/occupant experience within the building and throughout the neighborhood.
