Crowd-sourced road apps have been ideal in letting drivers know, in real time, if the routes they’re traveling have accidents, stalled cars, or even cops. Now, that technology is moving over to buildings, allowing tenants and residents to share information with facilities managers.
One offering in this technology is CrowdSense, a tool created by Boston, MA-based start-up CrowdComfort. With CrowdSense, smartphone users submit reports on building issues, such as climate control and other things. These reports, in turn, go straight to facility, property or real-estate managers. According to a statement from the company, “it gets as granular as a specific floor’s coffee maker overheating.”
