Bringing the Heat | Michael Wong from Genea

Working late nights or weekends at the office can pose problems if you happen to want HVAC services (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). Tenants usually have to phone the building manager 24 hours in advance to make a request. Engineers would be dispatched to turn on the equipment. Because of the additional cost, invoices would need to be generated for the tenant.

It’s a lot of extra trouble just to make sure you can breathe. Michael Wong endeavors to solve that problem with his company, Genea, which offers a cloud-based system that connects with HVAC systems, and generates automatic billing for tenants.

On this edition of UpTech Report, Michael talks about how this technology works and its implications for commercial real estate.
