Kisi + Optix integration in a white labeled application

This is a guest post from our technology partner Optix, who operates software made for coworking and flexible offices. You can view their website here.

In the first of a next-generation batch of integration updates, Optix now has a Kisi SDK integration. This enables tap-to-unlock directly in the Optix mobile application, circumventing the need to download the Kisi app to use the feature. As other software partners integrate the Kisi SDK into their applications, we'll post similar updates!

Picture this: It’s Tuesday afternoon and one of your clients needs access to a meeting room. They open your very own white-labeled app and place their phone near the Kisi-enabled door. the light blinks green and they’re free to access the space! You’re notified the meeting room is booked and their membership plan is updated automatically in real-time.

All of this and more is made possible with the newly updated Optix and Kisi integration.

What is Optix?

Optix is a coworking management software that helps coworking managers and flexible space operators manage, measure, and optimize their workspace.

They put the user front and center in the workplace experience by creating white-labeled apps that simplify the day-to-day operations of coworking spaces and flexible offices.

Optix helps flexible workspace operators:

  • Automate operations, from onboarding users all the way to invoicing and collecting payment
  • Improve oversight with rich data and analytics on how people are interacting with your space
  • Provide users with a centralized, easy-to-use mobile app that acts as their remote control for the workplace
  • Grow business revenues by optimizing utilization of their space, diversifying revenue streams, and more

By taking the manual processes out of workplace management, operators can focus on what they need to grow their coworking business.

What is the Optix and Kisi integration?

Coworking spaces with both Kisi and Optix can integrate the two systems so they share information with one another. When working together, they become an automated access control powerhouse for your coworking space.

With the Optix and Kisi integration, you can:

  • Manage access to your space
  • Measure who is using the space and when
  • Optimize workflows and make your processes more efficient
  • Enhance the security of your workspace

Best of all, users will now be able to use a white-labeled Optix app to access Kisi-enabled doors in your workspace. This means users will only need one app to access your coworking space instead of two.

It’s a first-of-its-kind integration that is paving the way for future coworking spaces and flexible offices.

"Companies can now provide a fully customized experience to their members or employees within one mobile application. We are excited to see how customers will benefit from this new integration with Optix and extend their current app capabilities to seamlessly include physical access."
Bernhard Mehl, Co-founder and CEO of Kisi

What are the benefits?

The best flexible workspace operators know the importance of automating their access control system. The easier it is for users to access a space, the better.

Gaining access to your coworking space with a single, centralized app makes it easy for users to come and go. It provides your members with a seamless and intuitive experience that leaves a positive impression long after they’ve left your space.

Plus, it puts your brand front and center in the user experience.

"Optix is on a mission to enable our partners with the best user experience possible. We hope users will be delighted to seamlessly access the resources, services, and amenities of their flex workplace, all within one app!"
Kia Rahmani, Founder and CEO of Optix
