Building Engines announced the strongest year of growth in its eleven year history- including double digit revenue growth over 2011.

Building Engines today announced its web-service integration with Yardi Voyager through new partner Gelbgroup Consulting, Inc., a Yardi certified integrator. The advanced integration allows system users to automatically “push” accurate charges (e.g. overtime HVAC bills) directly from Building Engines to their accounting system without delay, rather than sending periodic batches of information between the two systems.
Building Engines today announced the expansion of its platform throughout the growing Urban Renaissance Group portfolio.

Work today is much more an action as opposed to a place – you’re not chained to a desk anymore. You don’t have to go to your desktop computer in order to complete work that you do. Instead, you’re out working with your constituents, customers or tenants. Questions come up in real time, issues come up in real time, and you deal with them in real time – without a stack of paper or through a tethered computer.
There’s more on 2012’s calendar than the Mayan Apocalypse – it less morbidly marks the Franklin Part Zoo’s 100th year of providing laughs, tapir calves and giraffes to the public. A cool century ago in October 2012, the Franklin Park Zoo opened in Boston and has since grown to include several exhibits (hedgehogs, prairie dogs, cockatoos and kangaroos!) featuring over 220 species of animals. Throughout the years the zoo has survived changes in management as well as difficult economic times, yet has always been able to evolve with the times in order to keep themselves on top.
Building Engines today announced the upcoming release of a next generation mobile app (BE Mobile) as an extension to its Property and Tenant Management Platform. Leveraging new and powerful mobile technology, Building Engines’ enhanced mobility platform combines the independence and power of an “onboard” mobile application with the depth and flexibility of its core operations management solution.

The driving force behind our Operations Performance Management functionality is creating and presenting data that works for you, not against you. Our latest extension of this feature, closes the service loop and definitively answers the important operational question: Is our service meeting internal and tenant expectations.
