We recently shared news of a fresh partnership that will make life easier for our current and future customers: we have joined WiredScore’s newly launched Accredited Solutions offering.
But what does it really mean to be WiredScore’s Accredited Solution – for us and for our current and future customers – that’s what we’ll explain here.
Our living and working habits as well as climate change are forcing us to rethink our living environment. That’s why the buildings of today must be smart buildings.
There is no single definition of a smart building, but in general, a smart building's characteristics include:
WiredScore is a leading building technology company that seeks to accelerate the development of smart buildings by assessing and improving digital connectivity and smart technology in homes and offices around the world.
SmartScore is a certification developed by WiredScore to provide clarity on what constitutes a smart building, guidance on how to achieve the status, and proof of the value it adds to the asset. With SmartScore, properties can be scored and their intelligence can be compared in a coherent framework.
While a well-received certification for the buildings exists, ‘smart’ continues to be an opaque subject for the real estate industry – despite the fact that smart building seems to be a requirement today, not least from the point of view of residents.
To address this contradiction, WiredScore developed the Accredited Solutions accreditation system to bring digital real estate solution providers into the same framework with the buildings that are deploying those solutions, making comparison efficient, transparent and reliable for property owners.
Accredited Solutions are technology providers whose systems and solutions have been benchmarked against WiredScore’s certification standards, empowering them to work with landlords globally.
If a company wants to become WiredScore accredited, it means that:
For the property owner, the accreditation is first and foremost about trust:
Hococo became one of WiredScore’s first-ever Accredited Solution in November 2022. This means, that WiredScore has confirmed Hococo’s ability to deliver across the SmartScore framework.
Hococo's areas of excellence lie especially in the Community and Services as well as Maintenance and Operation sections of the scorecard. Especially recognized by SmartScore is Hococo’s ability to create communities within buildings to drive tenant engagement and its work order management.
The accreditation report also makes special mention of Hococo’s various booking options for amenities, an outstanding ticketing system with a communication function as well as great compliance options.
Accreditation is a signal to our customers that we not only meet the very highest standards for smart building innovation today – but our partnership enables us continuously benchmark our solution and gain an even better understanding of how to best develop our offer in the future.
We are happy to tell you more about the accreditation as well as give a demo of our digital solution, that helps you forward on your smart building journey!
