Digital Building Ecosystem ( 3/13): Connectivity of Property Accounting System

10:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


An accounting system is one of the essential components for any business entity, but it is often standalone and detached from the business operation, and the property management industry is not an exception. Even payments, the closest operation to an accounting system like monthly rentals, maintenance, sinking fund, late payment interest, etc., have no integration between billings and payment processes, resulting in manual eye-balling reconciliations and frequent errors.
 

“No man is an island; the same applies to a property management accounting system. Imagine how much time saved if one can auto-knockoff invoices when integrating with a tenant management system or do auto-reconciliation when integrating with a bank system. It would be a real time-saver when payment receipts can be generated instantly and immediately sent to the tenants. And tenants would welcome a self-service platform for them to check on their account statuses or pay deposits for any tie-up with events, ” explained Barry Chai, the CTO of TimeTec Group, who is also the system architect of TimeTec i-Account, the Property Management Accounting System.
 


“For example, a system can automatically bar a facility booking process if the tenant fails to pay his maintenance fees for three months.”

Barry Chai, Chief Technology Officer, TimeTec Group




“Connectivity is the essence of the digital transformation era. We have developed the essential cloud components for the property management system for the past ten years, and all the relevant components are interconnected to form the TimeTec Digital Building Ecosystem. TimeTec i-Account is one of the essential modules that we integrated with i-Neighbour super App for residential properties and TimeTec Building super App for commercial properties. ” 
 
“A standalone accounting system is usually aimed at solving common accounting problems, but when an accounting system establishes a connection with some related activities, it unleashes endless possibilities to benefit the business, especially when money flow ties up with data flow and activity flow seamlessly,” explained Barry.

To achieve better automation, TimeTec Group partners with iPay88, eGHL for payment gateways, Boost and GrabPay for eWallet payments, and integrates its system with UOB to provide auto-reconciliation capability.

Digital Building Ecosystem (4/12): Know Your Visitors

10:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


How to enhance security on the one hand and let the visitors feel welcomed, on the other hand? It seems like the choice is either; to offer both is almost impossible for building management.


For multi-tenanted commercial buildings, even the management has difficulty knowing all their tenants and employees, and when it comes to visitors, almost everybody is a stranger and rarely a familiar friend.
 
"On-arrival visitor registration is still a common practice now; it's awful to see quite some modern buildings are still using logbook to register their visitors. Pre-registration is the trend to solve the queue problem and improve visitor experience, but extending it to automation in access control is the real plus point, " Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group, commented on the visitor system for TimeTec Digital Building Solutions.  
  
Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group

"Imagine the pre-registered visitors can use the QR code and face recognition to get through much simpler security clearance to access the car park, turnstile, lift to designated floors and doors. But without a cloud system for visitor management, the extension of visitation out of a building is harder to achieve," he said. 
 
"Unlike single company occupied building, even with cloud, to achieve the smooth visitation flow for the multi-tenanted commercial tower is no easy task, because the commitment of tenants and their staff is the key factor in implementation. A single-purpose App is less attractive, and you can't force your tenants to download an App just for guest invitation only."
 


"Besides visitor management, our TimeTec App has packed with all other necessities such as communication, access control, security, facility booking, commerce and payment etc., which are the common activities in a commercial building."
 
"You need to improve the tenant engagement; only then the visitor engagement will come naturally. Know your tenants; only then you will get to know your visitors better while you enhance the security and visitor experience at the same time." 

With many readily available modules, TimeTec Digital Building Ecosystem helps modern building management ease daily operations.

Digital Building Ecosystem (5/13): Awakening Patrol Guards

9:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


“One day, we discovered that our guards did the patrol duty they were supposed to do by touring the entire area, but all inside their guardhouse without sweating themselves out. How did they do it? Easy. They removed the checkpoints from the designated locations, tag them all using the handheld reader inside the guardhouse. How would your cloud-based patrol system solve this problem?” A residential condominium Joint Management Body or known as JMB Chairman, asked. 

“No issue with TimeTec Patrol because the NFC (Near Field Communication) tags we use as checkpoints can be geofenced in our system. It means when an NFC tag is removed from its designated location, it will notify the admin, and it can no longer be used as a checkpoint, preventing any form of dishonesty. And, we have patented this technology in Malaysia and the United States,” explained Teh Hon Seng, Founder and CEO of TimeTec Group. 

Teh Hon Seng, Founder and CEO of TimeTec Group
The weakness of the conventional guard tour system is obvious. The supervisor needs to go to each checkpoint to collect the data weekly and report to the management weekly or monthly. Imagine if a site has 100 checkpoints and 12 different tours daily, the management may not want to thoroughly check a plain report stack. 

TimeTec Patrol, as part of the TimeTec Digital Building solutions, improved the patrol system by sending a real-time notification to a supervisor, security head, or any management member they set as admin via mobile phones. For example, if missed punch or late punch or not follow the routes, the system will auto-send notification. The change of task assignments and checklist during the tour also can be distributed easily using the system too.  
 

“It’s time to revolutionize the patrol system because security cannot wait. When things happen are related to security, it causes the loss of life and asset. You don’t want to pay RM20K to RM50K a month engaging a guard service, only to find out that they’re not guarding your property properly. And, for TimeTec Patrol System, you just need to pay RM500 for 100 checkpoints a month to ensure that guard duty is carried out accordingly.”  

“We spent three years developing TimeTec Patrol System back in 2016, and now we are one of the few among the world’s renowned cloud-based guard tour systems. We have now close to 10 thousand guards using the system in their guard tours operation daily. We have a wide range of real-estate customers subscribed to our TimeTec Patrol system to safeguard their properties ranging from residential to office towers, factories to warehouses, schools to hospitals, showrooms to shopping malls, etc. And quite many security companies take the initiative to subscribe to our patrol system which they stand a better chance in sales pitch by providing a trackable and better quality assurance in security for their clients.”


Teh highlighted connectivities of TimeTec Patrol with other TimeTec cloud solutions that enhanced security. “Any housing project installed with TimeTec Smart Alarm (SIRIM and MCMC certified) and TimeTec Patrol and TimeTec i-Neighbour, it gives extra protection to house owners because any alarm triggered will alert the guardhouse and guard in patrol to provide immediate and timely assistance.”

“For commercial buildings, it associates with TimeTec Tenant and TimeTec Smart Workforce System, which can provide great help during a fire roll call activity to identify and evacuate everybody from the building.”

Digital Building Ecosystem (6/13): Near Field Commerce, The Coming Trend

9:00 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


Despite the success of borderless and O2O (online to offline) e-Commerce businesses, particularly after the Covid-19 attack, we can’t deny that the largest part of commerce activities is still from the nearby offline commerce where we buy stuff near where we stay, and where we work. The nearby offline commerce remains the most natural way to spend our money for our daily sustenance. 

“Is there a necessity to extend the nearby commerce that serves the community from offline to online if they meant to serve the communities nearby? What benefits does it bring to the communities nearby? What is the better term to best describe nearby online commerce? And I use Near Field Commerce, the term I coined, adopting the well-known acronym, NFC, Near Field Communication protocol that takes effects within 4cm for two electronic devices.” Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group discussed the coming trend of community commerce.  
 
Teh Hon Seng, CEO of TimeTec Group

He commented, “One of the problems of the existing e-Commerce is, when you purchase multiple items from one eCommerce platform, it might get split into multiple deliveries, that exaggerate carbon emission and packaging wastage problems. But none of these problems exists for the nearby commerce. Even for a group-buy platform like Groupon, it groups all the purchases from individuals to enjoy volume purchase discounts for tangible products. But, when it comes to delivery, it is still done in multiple. In most of the e-Commerce platforms, customers are always treated as separate individuals; while in Near Field Commerce, it targets individuals in the community rather than sporadic individuals from everywhere.”
 
“When a commerce platform targets a community, it can achieve ‘Multiple Purchases, One Delivery’, be it to a workplace or to a residential community.” Teh continued, “ TimeTec has Tenant App for business towers, and i-Neighbour App for a residential community built-in with commerce platform that consists of three components namely i-Merchants for merchant listing, TimeTec Mart for online purchase including community group buy feature, and i-Ad for merchants to advertise and boost their sales.”  
 

“Imagine if there is a township project built with mixed shop lots, shopping mall, residential and office towers, Near Field Commerce can better connect merchants with the nearby working people and residential communities. And with the participation of merchants, township developer can monetize while sustaining its white-labelled App for commercial and residential buildings to be used by its tenants and residents for free.” 
 
Teh also highlighted, “Near Field Commerce is a new concept, but it shouldn’t be built separately. Instead, it should stay as part of the digital building ecosystem for commercial or residential buildings.”
 
When combined with the community App, it enables the community group to buy for the volume-purchase discount, saving a vast logistics cost by just one delivery for multiple items to multiple units and individuals. Since Near Field Commerce platform is a part of the community ecosystem, it should also integrate with the visitor management system to facilitate the purchase delivery for better security. TimeTec Group has filed four patents for Near Field Commerce.
 
Click here for more information, there is an article written by Teh Hon Seng on Near Field Commerce.  
 
This article has also been published in Chapter 19 in the book “Smart Residential Communities: Principles, Practices & Practical Guidebook”

8:30 PM TimeTec 0 Comments


One of the important aspects in a modern highrise residence is having a system to manage its visitors; knowing who’s coming in and out of the residence and having a smooth visitor check-in and out system.

N-Park also known as N-Park Resort Condominium is located in a prime area of Batu Uban, Penang wanted to upgrade their system and have chosen iNeighbour smart community solution. With 980 units, N-Park was in need of a system that could help them manage and track daily visitors and replace their manual visitor logbook.

Now, with iNeighbour, all visitor information can be easily tracked and monthly reports can be generated in a short time and it saves time too”, commented one of the admin of N-Park.

With the iNeighbour visitor management system, the registration of visitors is made easy with various visitation options: visitor invitation, pre-registration and walk-in registration. The system also supports OCR (optical character recognition) that converts the text on IC or driving license to digital and automatically input into the iNeighbour system, reducing manual typing or input and minimizing human error.
