Kastle Systems International, a provider of managed security solutions and services, and Rise Buildings, the provider of an integrated proptech platform that manages all the daily activities for buildings’ staff and occupants, announced an agreement to integrate Kastle’s digital mobile access credential functionality with Rise Buildings’ advanced occupant experience app.
Rise Buildings is the first platform to announce a formal partnership with Kastle Systems to use Kastle’s new mobile Software Development Kit (SDK). This teams embedded digital access credentials for property occupants within the broader Rise property experience platform, strengthening the overall Rise offering by integrating managed access and security capabilities with other Rise features, including rent payment processing, package delivery notifications and pickups, maintenance requests, pre-authorized visitor access, amenity usage reservations and more.
This agreement between real estate service leaders demonstrates their shared belief that providing occupants with digital access via mobile devices is an empowering, “sticky” feature that extends the everyday convenience and experience for tenants, residents and employees in buildings anywhere. The partnership also encourages occupant engagement and adoption by meeting and exceeding their expectations for improved property experiences across residential and commercial markets.
Rise Buildings has amplified the power and reach of its platform by partnering with Kastle, who offers the most robust hands-free digital access platform on the market.
“As the first partner in Kastle’s Mobile SDK program, Rise Buildings can continue to focus on the advancement of our property experience platform while leveraging Kastle’s pioneering leadership in access control implementation and monitoring,” said Prasan Kale, CEO of Rise Buildings. “With a national footprint and a proven track record providing unrivaled access control across millions of square feet of real estate worldwide, Kastle is the perfect partner for us, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about what the future holds together.”
Kastle Systems’ objective for its Mobile SDK program was to respond to the trend toward a more experiential, single app strategy and make sure that its BLE-enabled mobile access was available for any customer on whichever app they choose. “Rise Buildings has led the way in developing innovative occupant experience technology that meets the demands of ever-higher occupant expectations,” said Haniel Lynn, CEO of Kastle Systems. “The integration with Rise Buildings exemplifies the seamless availability of mobile credentials as part of a single, sophisticated mobile tenant experience, and is very much aligned with and ahead of market trends.”
