Accesso Partners with Swivel to Bolster Leasing Efforts
Swivel’s digital office leasing platform will help Accesso shorten the leasing process by allowing tenants to engage in interactive virtual tours of its office spaces
HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – March 12, 2021 – Accesso, a fully-integrated investment manager and operator of multi-tenant office buildings, today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with Swivel, a digital leasing platform for office space that empowers property owners and their leasing teams to flexibly market, design and lease tailored workspaces to deliver a superior tenant experience. Accesso will offer Swivel’s comprehensive offering of digital tools throughout its portfolio, allowing prospective tenants to participate in immersive, in-suite virtual walkthroughs to better visualize spaces in a variety of finish-out and furniture-layout options, saving time and cost prior to build out.
“While the COVID-19 vaccine has brought a sense of relief and has people energized to return to the workplace, we believe the digital transformation we’ve seen since the onset of the pandemic is likely to stick in many aspects of daily life, and the leasing process is not immune to that, said Paul Gaines, Managing Director, Asset Management at Accesso. “The world has grown accustomed to interacting virtually or from six feet apart, and we’ve maintained strong leasing activity due to our ability to adapt and leverage technology wherever possible to provide our tenants with the optionality they covet. By partnering with Swivel, we have the ability to accelerate the leasing process by showcasing our portfolio to a larger community of prospective tenants, allowing them to visualize layouts from the comfort of their homes.”
Swivel’s digital leasing platform empowers property owners and their teams to deliver a digitally native customer experience for current and future tenants across all phases of the office lifecycle, including marketing, leasing and occupancy. What sets the platform apart from others in the market is its digital twin technology that creates a virtual copy of the office space which can be altered to show potential tenants various options for designing their spaces.
"Our software platform allows landlords and tenants to visualize and negotiate exactly how a space would look," said Scott Harmon, CEO and CoFounder, Swivel. "Traditionally photography is used, or even a 3D camera, but what’s being captured is the existing condition of the space, which limits the ability to conceptualize 'what if I want it to look this way?' We help our partners to get more tenant prospects virtually through the space, and showcase their buildings and spaces on not just what they look like at that moment, but what they could look like in the future."
