OpticWise— Helping property owners and operators provide tenants with private, seamless, and secure data connectivity solutions

Technology is undoubtedly essential in the real estate industry since buildings are expensive investments. PropTech is transforming the real estate industry and, most of all, tenant-facing solutions are driving the largest returns.

Many commercial real estate owners are recognizing that the right technology can make their properties more profitable. The evidence is in the numbers: OpticWise clients enjoy significant returns and extraordinary yields from their owned networks and technology. And, their tenants enjoy complete mobility while remainining private and secure during all of their data connected activities.

OpticWise is a property tech company providing innovative solutions for multi-tenant properties. Simply and uniquely put: they monetize technology assets for office and apartment owners. The company leverages proptech and in-building connectivity to deliver mobile, secure & private access to any technology.

OpticWise is focused entirely on helping property owners provide tenants with a sophisticated, seamless, private, and secure data network solution while turning in-building connectivity into both a tenant retention tool and a profit center.

The following excerpts are taken from a conversation with Bill Douglas, the CEO of OpticWise

Q. When was OpticWise founded? Can you tell us about the journey so far?

OpticWise was founded by Drew Hall over 15 years ago. A network & technology genius, his team was solving problems in the student housing space. I joined OpticWise 6 years ago, after which we shifted our focus entirely to multitenant commercial real estate (CRE) owners.

Q. What is OpticWise’s philosophy? How do you implement it in your approach?

Our philosophy is simple: Take care of the client. Listen, solve their problems, and service their tenants. In other words, we deliver substantial value to all stakeholders.

We implement this by hiring great team members and maintaining an incredible culture revolving around our core values.

Q. How important is innovation at OpticWise? How do you foster innovation in your processes and service offerings for your customers?

We are CRE technology thought leaders, so innovation is at the center of all we do.

We spend a significant amount on research & development (R&D) and encourage all of our team members to invest time in creating new and better ways to provide services & solutions.

This “find a better way” approach led to the birth of our Building of Things™ (BoT™) strategy, which is changing both design and operation of CRE digital infrastructures.

Q. What are the various services offered by OpticWise to CRE owners?

We offer a slew of services, all revolving around the core offering: Monetizing Technology assets for CRE. Our clients enjoy extraordinary ROI and NOI from their application of the core strategies.

The core outcomes for our clients are:

  • Premium Market Positioning
  • Enhanced Income
  • Control of Systems and Data

Q. What are the various services offered by OpticWise to CRE tenants?

The core outcome for tenants of our clients is:

  • Seamless, private, secure 5S™ Mobility: Go anywhere on the property and stay in your secure network, managing your users and devices, all while enjoying very high speeds and absolute user privacy.

Q. Can you elaborate on your 5S™ User Experience?

The 5S™ User Experience uniquely provides mobility and security to tenants, while maintaining ultimate privacy at all times. We support users with any connectivity issues and deliver the UX over fast, resilient networks.

5S™ stands for:

  • Seamless Mobility
  • Security
  • Speed
  • Stability (Resilience)
  • Service

Q. Can you elaborate on your “Ultimate User Privacy Policy”?

We don’t retain any user information and we certainly do not treat the user as a commodity—meaning we do not collect user activity data and we do not monetize anything about the user. What a 5S™ user does is completely up to the user and, at all times, completely private.

Extremely unique to the market, we provide this 5™ User Ultimate Privacy Policy in writing to clients and their tenants and apply it in everything we do.

Q. What were some challenges you overcame through innovative solutions? Can you give us a few examples?

Change is difficult for many. Simultaneously shifting both our offering and our customer base appeared bold, however, we were listening to our clients and stayed laser-focused on solving the problems they were facing.

Consistency in message, focus, and vision prevailed, and, in time, client successes began mounting as did our revenues and profitability resulting in tremendous growth.

Q. What are the future plans for OpticWise?

We have global expansion on our horizon. We want to see every multi-tenant user in any CRE space be private and protected while they are completely mobile. There is no reason for any tenant to be relegated to their leased space, nor is there ever a reason for a tenant’s privacy to be violated or monetized.

This has ramifications in the technical and commercial aspects of the “status quo”, however, we know that end-users want this. Our best clients embrace the user, which, in turn, results in massive financial returns for them.
