HqO helps power workplace experience at Newcastle’s Portland House

A commercial real estate software firm is supporting a business base’s multi-million-pound redevelopment.

HqO is delivering its end-to-end workplace experience platform at Newcastle’s Portland House.

Bosses say the deal will see HqO’s technology rolled out across the 65,000sq ft building, which is due to be renovated by March.

They say, that through the HqO app, occupiers will enjoy touchless building access, removing the need for access cards.

The app allows occupiers to easily book desks and meeting rooms in the communal space for themselves and their guests. It provides exclusive promotions and rewards with local partners, and acts as a direct means of communication with the management team to ensure unrivalled building service. 

Speaking about the partnership, Oliver Holland, at Portland House, said: “We firmly believe that a quality user experience should be an integral part of any workplace, which is why we are delighted to be partnering with HqO.

“The platform will enable us to deliver an unmatched, hospitality-like experience for all our occupiers, in keeping with our commitment to quality, productivity and wellbeing at Portland House.”

Samuel Warren, HqO’s managing director for the UK and Ireland, said:“As workplace usage continues to evolve, having the right tools and technology in place to serve a changing occupier market is absolutely critical. From the outset, it was clear that Portland House was committed to embracing innovation and delivering a quality tenant experience. Our partnership will enable users to seamlessly access and enjoy everything this fantastic building has to offer.”
