Mexico is currently experiencing an economic and health crisis like no other in the generation. Tech startups around the world are marginalized. Many have used their business model to support their communities, customers and employees and to help them maintain the speed and continuity of the business. Here is a brief summary of some notable contributions from Proptech startups.

Pedestrian flow analysis. Decoding, an advanced data analytics platform for sales forecasting to measure pedestrian flow, announced the launch of its Mobility COVID-19 platform, which measures the flow of people. The tool enables a quick analysis of the impact of the pandemic in all regions of the country. The company uses the most reliable and up-to-date data to give users an idea of ​​the current pulse of its industry.

Remote building management. During the COVID-19 pandemic, remote building management has become imperative with minimal exposure to possible infection. Happy Community offers remote building management capabilities that help builders do more for their tenants, even when faced with the reality of reduced or absent staff and / or external providers.

Management of rooms for social events. Wimet is an Argentine platform that connects people, companies and brands with physical spaces for holding events to enhance the optimization of physical spaces. With a special interest in innovation, the startup tries to give traditional places in the “new normal” new uses or to promote more original ideas as options for holding an event.

Visualization of real estate without physical contact. It is now possible to view buildings in possible areas where this is not possible due to social distance. Flip offers homeowners, brokers and tenants who need to terminate their leases free of charge their contactless ad. Unlike virtual displays, which require significant upfront costs to activate, buyers who use Flip experience real displays without human contact.

An intelligent key box on the appliance door or near the main entrance door protects the keys. Users select a one-hour display area from the flip list, verify their identity and receive a one-time access code. They use the keys to enter the rental, go through it and return it after viewing.
