NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
Building Intelligence, the creators of the award-winning software SV3® for the security of visitors, vehicles and vendors, has raised $4.1 million in a Series A financing led by Founders Equity. Concurrent with the financing, Warren Haber, a longstanding investor in real estate and real estate information technologies, will join the Board of Building Intelligence.
Building Intelligence, based in New York City and growing rapidly, intends to use the newly funded capital to expand its engineering team; build out additional integrations with other software products; expand its focus on larger enterprise customers; and enhance customer support.
The company was founded by Jeffrey C. Friedman, who had spent years working in real estate technology development and implementation and conceived the concept to create a physical security solution for managing the ingress and egress of visitors, vehicles and vendors as an integral part of every real estate operation. “I saw that facility management organizations and physical security suppliers were in need of a solution that supports the convergence of security, operations and logistics. Unknown vehicles, unknown vendors and uninvited visitors arriving on-site and attaining access to critical infrastructure, is unacceptable. How many times have we heard the saying ‘the suspect arrived by vehicle’? At Building Intelligence, we are assembling the information with a cloud to mobile solution for access management combined with a platform for resource and traffic management,” said Friedman. “We have customers using our platform for projects here in the USA and overseas, and we provide a SafetyAct designated solution; supporting the principles of public-private partnerships with our commercial and government clients. With a significant roster of system integrator partners, we continue to build out our footprint connecting field operations to distributed technologies.” He added: “We are extremely excited to partner with Warren and Founders Equity, given the firm’s specific success in investing in a leading worldwide provider of real estate information.”
Founders Equity’s Haber added: “After studying this sector, we concluded that Building Intelligence was providing a ground-breaking solution that will transform how we support secure operations. Not only is the Company improving operations and security, but the Company’s clients were seeing a tremendous return on their investment utilizing SV3. We believe Building Intelligence’s technology with its team are in a unique position to revolutionize security and operations.”
Building Intelligence will be exhibiting at ISC East Nov. 14-15 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York, NY.
