HqO and Alpha’a Bring the Visual Arts to Commercial Real Estate Leaders
New Partnership Lends Access to Curated Catalogue of Over One Thousand Artists
BOSTON – November 2, 2020 – HqO, the end-to-end operating system for commercial office buildings, has partnered with Alpha’a, the world’s largest virtual gallery collection. Powered by the HqOS™ Tenant Experience Platform, Alpha’a technology — coined Alpha’a Connect — unites artists, collectors, and landlords through the built world experience of public art. Together, they provide 100% customizable, gallery-quality art for any business.
“Alpha’a’s dynamic solutions offer value for both tenants and landlords,” said Reid Snyder, Director of Platform Solutions at HqO. “Their partnership is one that appeals to both sides of the HqO Marketplace — transforming the physical workplace itself and connecting individuals to a larger, virtual world of art.”
Alpha’a reduces overhead costs, while providing artwork directly to the purchasers due to its crowdsourced and pre-curated platform. They also bring people and artists together during a time of physical distancing by offering inside views to the creator’s world through more curated, personal content such as Q&A’s and industry round tables.
“Alpha’a partnering with the HqO tenant experience platform is a perfect fit for us in our mission to deliver high-quality, low-cost fine art to businesses and individuals,” said Manuela Seve, CEO and Co-Founder of Alpha’a. “Being part of HqO’s Marketplace is an exciting opportunity for Alpha’a to provide art works to major commercial real estate entities in a safe, easy, and fast process, as well as implementing tools helping to maintain social distancing in the COVID-19 era.”

From one single tool, customers can navigate the proptech landscape and identify partners that fit their specific needs. HqO customers are now able to save time procuring service providers, accelerate innovation within their existing technology stack, and deliver better tenant outcomes.
