Connect, Understand and Improve Everything
Mixed-use commercial real estate has special benefits and challenges. The upside is you have a flexible range of uses, from restaurants to residences, you can tap to keep your property full even when tastes and trends change. The downside is tastes and trends will change so you always need to be on your toes, working to keep the tenants that perform and ready to adapt to a new mix when others don’t.
Maximizing revenue on each and every square foot of a mixed-use property is a never ending effort. The Skylight Building Performance and Operations Platform can help make it easier.
Start simple, save money.
The biggest costs in mixed-use CRE aren’t in energy or lighting, they’re in personnel and maintenance. Skylight can help you limit those costs by a third or more right away. With productivity tools like digital plans with hotspots, smart work orders grouped by location, even hands-free voice commands and mobile maintenance manuals, the Skylight platform’s AI helps your people easily get what they need when and where they need it. That eliminates delays, lowers risks as well as costs, and helps you keep your property running smoothly and efficiently.
Add what you already have for better operational insight.
You can make your property smarter just by making better use of what’s already there. With Skylight, you can pull in data from your BMS, utility meters, and other systems and see how your building is working right then and there, not days or weeks later. With that information at your fingertips, you can make smarter, more responsive decisions to help your building be more efficient, comfortable and desirable for tenants and guests all day, every day.
Get smarter by adding IoT.
Sensors and connected “things” are cheaper than ever and can bring you new insight without tearing into walls or running wires. Add a few sensors to Skylight and you can actively monitor conditions and adapt building behavior zone by zone as well as property-wide. You can learn what people like (or don’t like) on your property, and even highlight potential trouble spots that might otherwise go unnoticed. Whether it’s temperature and humidity variations, occupancy and traffic flow, or even detecting hidden water leaks or faulty systems, Skylight can make you smarter about your property. And because the Skylight platform supports dozens of IoT manufacturers and hundreds of different sensor types you bring all your building data together into a single platform that everyone can use to improve building operations and performance.
Create value: Make your property a “Place.”
What’s the difference between a “Place” and a “Property?” A “Place” is more valuable. A property is just a thing, but a place is where people want to go spend time and money and return to more often. Skylight helps turn a property into a place by bringing all the data together — drawings, floorplans, operation systems, weather, even people generated information like comments and work requests — to create a unique information set called “Place Data” that lets you focus on what’s working and eliminate what’s not. The result is a better managed place with higher revenues and lower costs.
AI power: Start smart, get smarter, more profitable.
The Skylight Platform not only helps you get smarter about your building performance, thanks to powerful AI and machine learning systems, the Skylight platform itself gets smarter as you work with it. Whether it’s detecting in-wall leaks and calling a plumber, discovering hidden relations between independent building systems and building conditions, or using tenant behavior to measure the success of property improvements, Skylight’s built-in intelligence continues to learn and adapt based on the building’s growing Place Data set.
Best of all, thanks to Skylight robust APIs and interoperability, you can extend its features with new apps as well as exchange data with third party and in-house systems, to streamline your operations, improve building performance, and bolster your bottom line like never before.
