BuildingLink offers new security tool. (Technology Update).

As building managers look for ways to streamline operations as well as improve communications with tenants, they have been focusing increasingly on how their front desk operations work. Particularly in these times of heightened security awareness and accountability, managers are looking for a simpler way to organize and keep track of various front desk events such as package deliveries, visitors admitted or keys given out.

BuildingLink[TM] has now addressed that need with the addition of a new Event Log module to its popular online building communications and management software. With this enhancement, BuildingLink[TM] has taken another major step forward in addressing the complex multi-service cross-communication needs within residential buildings.

"We're very excited about the Event Log. It further cements the unexpected marriage between the Internet and the 'bricks and mortar residential real estate sector," said Jerry Kestenbaum, BuildingLink's president and founder. "When we set 'out to create this new module, we wanted to design something both practical and easy to use. We're extremely proud of the Event Log, and our early users are quite enthusiastic as well."

The Event Log is a security tool, a tracking medium, and an effective platform for front desk staff to communicate with residents. As a security tool, the Event Log enables doormen to capture signatures from guests, deliverymen or contractors who enter and exit the premises, and to monitor who is still in the building at any time. As a tracking medium, the Event Log allows busy front desk operators to record events like package deliveries or pick-ups, to easily see all "open" events or to scan and store package bar codes. As a communication tool, the Event Log generates automatic e-mail notification to tenants of any pertinent events that occur.

"Event Log is such a flexible tool because it accommodates every conceivable front desk scenario, from dry cleaning drop-offs and UPS package deliveries to visitors and key requests," said Michael Gubbins, resident manager of the Vanguard Chelsea, a 300-unit deluxe rental building in Chelsea. "The Event Log is turning heads in our building. Personally, I am most excited with the signature capture feature. In today's security conscious environment, residents need something extra to feel secure. And BuildingLink has given it to them."
