Acquisition Helps Engineers Improve Field Operations

Boston – Building Engines announced its acquisition of LogCheck, an application that helps streamline rounds, inspections and preventive maintenance tasks.

LogCheck enables facility managers and engineers to automate routine checks and reporting in the field, designed to provide a simpler way to maximize building efficiencies.

LogCheck’s mobile-first capabilities will help bolster Building Engines’ preventive maintenance and inspections offerings via Prism, a comprehensive building operations platform.

LogCheck’s application was developed to help operations and maintenance teams anticipate and prevent problems early, notably by relieving the communication challenges that are common to facilities management. The New York-based company now supports more than 800 active subscriptions from customers such as Boston Properties, Brookfield and Vornado.

LogCheck’s product is currently used to improve operational efficiencies for over 400 million sq. ft. of real estate across more than 1,400 buildings, including The New York Times Building and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, The U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles, and John Hancock Tower in Boston.

The LogCheck application includes digital checklists for improved accountability and communication for property management and staff; a customizable, simple-to-use mobile app; flexibility to automate routine inspections, preventive maintenance tasks, meter readings and security and sanitary rounds from a single application; and 24/7 access to maintenance data via web dashboards, calendar views and reports.

The announcement comes on the heels of Building Engines’ January acquisition of Ravti, a provider of HVAC management solutions. LogCheck now marks the fifth company to join Building Engines since 2018.
