AmTrust RE (AmTrust), a national real estate owner-developer with 12 million square feet of commercial, mixed-use, and residential properties, has launched “AmTrustRE,” a tenant experience app powered by VTS Rise, across the majority of its seven-building, 6.2-million-square-foot Chicago portfolio. AmTrust worked closely with VTS to customize the technology for each individual property, creating a curated experience for tenants across the portfolio.
VTS Rise, part of the larger VTS platform, is one of the market’s most robust tenant-focused technologies. The mobile app it has created in partnership with AmTrust enhances tenant interactions with every aspect of their buildings, offering them new conveniences while also maximizing existing amenities. Using the app, tenants are able to sign up for building amenities and conference rooms; order lunch from local dining establishments; gain easy building access for themselves and visitors without a keycard; and submit and manage service requests. In addition to enhancing the attractiveness of its properties by offering these services in a single, easy-to-use app, AmTrust is also able to utilize the app to alert tenants to building events and get real-time feedback via in-app surveys.
One of the leading office landlords in the Loop, AmTrust is currently in the early stages of a large-scale capital improvements campaign to its local portfolio, upgrading food and beverage options, fitness centers, lobbies and other common areas. Once complete, AmTrust’s properties will feature amenities and collaborative spaces designed to elevate the work experience of its tenants and increase their productivity.
