D.C. startup Aquicore rolled out new features to help building owners using its platform to track real-time data on energy and water usage, as well as air quality.

The company’s technology can compile data from equipment like meters and sensors. Many of the upgrades are designed to increase engagement with the platform.

“We’ve put a lot of work into understanding the ways commercial real estate professionals want to interact with their building data and how our platform can better match those expectations,” said Aquicore Vice President of Product Mike Donovan via email. “The latest features are focused on increasing the level of engagement between property managers, building engineers and our software. The more engagement we get, the more data our platform collects, and the more data our platform collects, the more detailed our findings will be for the user.”

Along with a fresh look to its Command Center, Aquicore added tools to help streamline communication with tenants and break down info into reports. Another set of features focuses on making it easier to read meters, bill clients and check for accuracy. Further updates provide a way to map meters and other equipment. There’s also a tool to keep a central record of inventory on that equipment, which could help transition that process from spreadsheets, according to Donovan.

According to Aquicore, the company’s platform has been deployed in more than 600 buildings around the country. The latest updates were developed over six months, and Donovan said the process included lots of user feedback.

“Every new feature Aquicore builds is based on user feedback,” Donovan said. “To succeed in the competitive, startup environment, product companies like Aquicore have to listen to our customers and be willing to make improvements to our products at all times. For example, we updated tenant billing (i.e. streamlined workflows and simplified processes for creating, approving and sending bills) as a direct response to a user pain point.”
