CZECH REPUBLIC Sharry and Otis bring touchless access to Smíchoff

Technology
Sharry and Otis have partnered to provide a contact-free elevator access system that is operated via a mobile app for the Smíchoff office building in Prague.

Users can access the building using a pre-generated QR code on their mobile devices that both opens the turnstile for them and then can call the lift and choose the destination floor via Sharry’s app.

We are very excited about this partnership with Otis as our number one objective is to enhance the tenant experience in office buildings. This strategic cooperation will enable new interaction, convenience and quality of service for all tenants.
Josef Šachta, the CEO and co-founder of Sharry

Smíchoff is an 11,500 sqm office building in Prague’s Anděl district. It was completed in 2019 and is now owned by Brno-based investment group Portiva.

We are pleased that Otis has installed this hi-tech system in our Smíchoff building. The system communicates with tenants and visitors via an app and will make their traffic and the whole experience smoother. Also, in the post-Covid era we can only benefit from using touchless technology. Thanks to similar devices, and not only that, the building has gained high prestige on the market and is almost entirely leased out.
Miloslav Kocek, the asset manager of Portiva Group
