Phunware Partners with Midway and MKT Consulting to Unveil Premium Mobile Experience for Buffalo Heights
Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) Platform Provides Mixed Use Development with Unified Mobile Solution Serving Multiple Stakeholders
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced that it will implement its Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform at Buffalo Heights, a mixed use development in Houston, Texas. This agreement represents a partnership with Midway, a real estate investment and development firm, MKT Consulting, a fully integrated building system design firm, and the Company.
Phunware will license an iOS and Android mobile application portfolio and community website that will serve residents, tenants, shoppers and property management within the development. Phase one of the mobile application portfolio will include residential services for St. Andrie — a five-story, luxury, multifamily community, and tenant services for One Buffalo Heights — representing approximately 37,000 square feet of office space.
“With over 32 acres of residential, office and retail space, Buffalo Heights needed a unique mobile solution to address the needs of its diverse stakeholder groups,” said Alan S. Knitowski, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “We’re delighted to provide a comprehensive enterprise platform through MaaS to help them achieve all of their objectives within a single mobile application portfolio.”
The mobile application portfolio will empower residents and tenants of St. Andrie and One Buffalo Heights to easily manage everything they do around the property from a single interface. Features include booking amenities, requesting work orders and valet services, tracking deliveries, viewing property maps and receiving alerts, notifications and messages. The application portfolio will also include SALTO’s smart lock integration that will allow residents and tenants to manage door access without physical keys. Property management will receive access to a backend portal in parallel that will enable them to receive and track requests, as well as communicate with residents and tenants.
“We are honored to partner with Phunware to elevate the shopper, tenant and guest experience at Buffalo Heights,” said Manny Thapar, President at MKT Consulting. “Phunware’s reputation and expertise in mobile has provided us a competitive edge to address the ever-changing market in the multifamily and mixed-use sectors.”
Phunware is currently planning phase two of the mobile application portfolio to add more features and capabilities that will allow shoppers even easier and more convenient access to additional shopping and dining services.
Buffalo Heights is an exceptionally high quality, mixed-use district, ideally located in proximity to Houston’s Buffalo Bayou Park, Memorial Park, The Heights, Washington Avenue Corridor and Downtown. Buffalo Heights affords a complete lifestyle built around outdoor activity, healthy local food and signature greenspace in the region’s most desirable and accessible urban infill location.
