Comfy just launched Comfy Insights, a workplace tool to provide managers with a multi-layered approach to how employees interact with the office. People can use the Comfy app to adjust aspects of their work environment, including the temperature. The building’s operational performance is added into the mix to provide a better understanding of how an office is being used and how to make it better.
The data can be used to help companies better understand their real estate decisions, save energy, and detect and solve building issues, according to Comfy chief technology officer Stephen Dawson-Haggerty.

Juniper Square launched its investment management software to real estate investment managers at the end of last month. The software integrates several capabilities into a single system, including CRM designed for real estate, a secure data room and automated subscription process to streamline fundraising, an investment accounting system that can scale to the most complex funds and automated investor reporting capability.
Juniper Square technology is being used by Beacon Capital, The Reliant Group, Cortland Partners and Swift Real Estate. Over 8,000 investors use the software to access information on nearly 1,000 investments. Customers are raising capital for over 130 offerings through the software. Juniper Square was founded by Alex Robinson, Adam Ginsburg and Yonas Fisseha.
Stereograph offers 3D visualizations, applications in which people can tour a building using their smartphones, and plans to launch building information modeling software later this year. The BIM software will provide property managers a single location to access all information about a building’s various systems. The software also offers the ability to view security video, real-time data and turn off lights remotely. Stereograph works with several Silicon Valley real estate firms, including SteelWave, The Sobrato Organization and Sares Regis, providing 3D visualizations and applications.
Dealpath unveiled its software platform late last year to help commercial real estate investors and developers track and manage deals. The software provides a central location for tasks, files, communication and reporting that is searchable and secure. It keeps track of deal data, distributes work and tracks receivables. Firms using the software include Millennium Partners, Cypress Equities and Restaurant Properties.
