Frequently Asked Questions

CAN MY ACCOUNT COVER MULTIPLE BUILDINGS?

You may have an unlimited number of buildings within your account. Each building requires a separate subscription. Large institutional users may choose to separate accounts by region or other means to simplify your user experience and manage your data.

I UNDERSTAND THAT I CAN COMMUNICATE WITH MY TEAM THROUGH THE PLATFORM ITSELF. HOWEVER, CAN I SUPPLEMENT THAT COMMUNICATION OUTSIDE OF THE PLATFORM VIA EMAIL, FAX OR PHONE CALLS?

Certainly you can. However, your collaboration through the cloud represents one of the most profound advantages of this platform. Your workflow routines will send alert notifications, create/assign tasks, and request approvals while documenting everything in one place to form an activity trail.

 

MY PROSPECTIVE TENANT IS TEST FITTING MY COMPETITORS’ BUILDINGS. WHAT CAN FAST OFFICE DO TO ENHANCE MY SUCCESS IN LANDING THIS TENANT?

Commercial real estate has been slow to embrace technology. Fast Office offers you and your brokers a competitive marketing advantage by exhibiting your company’s innovative procedures that result in faster responses, central communication portals and an agile mindset. In short, you can be at the headwinds of the next tipping point in this network-centric approach to office leasing.

MY PROSPECTIVE TENANT REQUIRES THAT I SIGN A NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT, HOW DO I MAINTAIN THE REQUIRED CONFIDENTIALITY ON THE FAST OFFICE PLATFORM?

The only parties with access to your building database are your designated users, broker, architect and tenant. Also, your tenant can use a personal (not company) email for registration and a company name is not required.

HOW CAN FAST OFFICE ASSIST ME IN COMPLYING WITH MY REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT CONTRACTS FOR MY INSTITUTIONAL CLIENTS?

Fast Office aids in lowering your operating costs and achieving higher occupancy rates which is a key metric in complying with your real estate management contract. Decreasing vacancy loss through successful, timely signing of tenants is of primary importance in increasing the cap value of an income producing property. The Fast Office platform accelerates the workflow process to help you increase and achieve higher building occupancy and less vacancy time.

WILL FAST OFFICE SAVE ME MONEY ON MY ARCHITECTURAL FEES?

Fast Office will save you architectural fees in several ways. With up front concept plans and the platform tightly controlling your space plan approvals and with clarity of tenant needs being defined up-front through the Space Assessment Tool, plan revisions can be minimized saving fees.

MY BUILDING IS PART OF A LARGE INSTITUTIONAL PORTFOLIO AND IS SUBJECT TO AUDITS. HOW CAN FAST OFFICE SUPPORT MY NEEDS?

Your prospective tenant space planning and other general building architectural expenses need to stay low, particularly when these efforts do not result in an executed lease. Fast Office’s workflow mandates your space plan and revision approvals and documents your team communications, thus providing an audit trail for reviewing your operational expenses.

WE GENERALLY TRY TO MINIMIZE OUR PROSPECT’S TENANT IMPROVEMENT ALLOWANCE SO AS TO PRESENT A COMPETITIVE AND FAVORABLY RECEIVED LEASE PROPOSAL. WHY DOES THE SPACE ASSESSMENT ADDRESS TYPICALLY NON-BUILDING STANDARD ITEMS THAT MAY RESULT IN MORE CONSTRUCTION COSTS?

The Space Assessment outlines tenant potential needs at the onset of the transaction instead of down line. Typically, as space plan revisions and negotiations progress, more and more tenant requirements ultimately surface. The Space Assessment brings clarity sooner and their above-building standard requests can be challenged more productively earlier in the process to help mitigate construction costs resulting in a more positive tenant experience.
