In the dynamic landscape of commercial real estate, achieving sustainability and efficiency is more crucial than ever. This is where SmartScore certification comes into play, setting a global benchmark for smart buildings. As a leading property technology provider, Equiem plays a vital role in helping landlords navigate the path to SmartScore certification, enhancing both the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) impact and operational efficiency of their properties.

Understanding SmartScore Certification

SmartScore is a pivotal certification that evaluates buildings based on two primary criteria: User Functionality and Technological Foundation. It measures how effectively a building meets user expectations in terms of community and services, and assesses the robustness of its technological systems. Achieving this certification signifies a building's commitment to offering top-tier user experiences and advanced operational capabilities.
