HqO Named “PropTech Startup of the Year” By PropTech Breakthrough

Annual Awards Program Recognizes Innovation in the Global Real Estate Technology Industry

BOSTON – August 11, 2021 – HqO, the end-to-end tenant experience operating system for office buildings, today announced it has been selected as winner of the “PropTech Startup of the Year” award in the inaugural PropTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by PropTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout real estate technology companies, products and services around the globe.

The HqOS platform is comprised of a tenant app, analytics suite, and a partner marketplace. Property teams can manage all customer-facing technology tools within their buildings, while remaining empowered to activate real connections between people and their properties with digital-to-physical experiences, data-driven decision making, and fast implementation of innovative asset strategies.

All these layers connect within HqOS Headquarters, a desktop command center where property teams can do everything from daily content creation to strategic technology planning.

HqO also offers a world-class customer experience helping owners and operators navigate the obstacles in the industry and customer pain points. Each HqO customer can take advantage of their focus on alignment, strategy, project and process management, and resources to truly understand the customer’s business and enable them to articulate the value of their investments.

“HqO’s solutions put experiences and a sense of community directly into the tenants’ hands while helping property owners uncover insights and take intelligent action to differentiate their assets. For most companies, 'outcomes' is merely a buzzword. For HqO, it’s a science,” said Chase Garbarino, Co-founder and CEO of HqO. “As the commercial real estate industry continues to evolve and new needs arise in the market, our attention to detail and level of customer support will be critical to any portfolio’s success. We are humbled to receive this award from PropTech Breakthrough as we continue to strive to grow and raise our profile.”

This year’s program attracted more than 1,350 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world.

“To help commercial office owners generate value in today’s experience economy, they need technology that engages with the people who occupy their buildings, using data to create the most value for their assets. This is fundamental to the CRE value equation: access to technology partners and the data they can collect are shaping new building standards for the future of the industry,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of PropTech Breakthrough Awards. “HqO’s end-to-end operating system for commercial real estate is the only one of its kind. By leveraging the HqO platform, landlords and property teams guarantee an advantage in the ever-changing commercial real estate industry.
