Workplace Experience App Comfy and Commercial Property Group Charter Hall Team Up to Deliver Better Workplaces

Oakland, California (April 2, 2018) – Comfy, a leading US-based workplace app
provider, is stretching its international reach with one of Australia’s largest
commercial property groups. Charter Hall will be introducing the Comfy solution to
its tenants across its real estate portfolio, starting with 1.2 million square feet (over
100,000 square meters) in four buildings in Sydney and Brisbane. The decision to
make the Comfy solution available to Charter Hall tenants follows impressive results
from a Comfy installation at Charter Hall’s corporate headquarters in Sydney last
year. In competitive real estate markets around the world, property owners are
rushing to add more people-centered workplace technology to attract and retain
tenants. The adoption of Comfy into Charter Hall’s larger portfolio reaffirms the
strong leadership role both companies are taking to deliver exceptional workplace
experiences.

Founded in 2012 and headquartered in the San Francisco Bay area, Comfy currently
works with Fortune 1000 companies in six countries. The Comfy solution connects
with existing building management systems to create amazing workplace
experiences and empower employees to control, connect, and communicate with
the people and places around them. At a time when smart technology is becoming
more common in the office, Comfy was the first (and is still the only) personal
workplace app designed for individuals to control temperature in their workplaces
on-demand. Comfy recently expanded to offer features such as Lighting, Room
Booking, and Work Requests. Comfy’s expansion with Charter Hall comes just weeks
after the announcement of Works with Comfy, a new partner ecosystem with
leaders in building automation, connected lighting, occupancy sensing, and indoor
positioning.

“Like Charter Hall, Comfy is committed to putting people at the center of our work
and making the office of the future a reality today,” said Andrew Krioukov, CEO and
Co-founder of Comfy. “As Comfy continues to prove to be the world’s leading musthave
workplace experience app, Australia is an increasingly important international
market for us. We’re thrilled to work with Charter Hall to deliver an exceptional
tenant experience.”

Charter Hall Group’s more than A$9 billion office portfolio is one of Australia’s
largest CBD office portfolios and has a strong reputation for a progressive approach
to innovative workplace design and technology. As the first Australian company to
deploy Comfy, the Group was recently nominated for the FM Innovation Awards
shortlist.

Charter Hall’s Innovation Lead – Office, Craig Rodgers, explained that the trial of
Comfy’s technology was helping the organization understand the emerging concept
of smart buildings and how they can deliver accurate and useful data for connected
tenant customer experiences.

“As a productivity partner of choice, Charter Hall is committed to enhancing our
tenant customer experiences through innovative workplace solutions. Comfy is a
great example of how we are using leading technology to improve customer
experiences in the workplace.

“As one of Australia’s largest owners and managers of CBD office assets, we focus
heavily on being the workplace experience provider of choice by putting our
customers at the heart of every decision we make.

“Comfy is a game changer to the way we manage one aspect of the occupant
experience in our buildings and provides our tenant customers and their people the
opportunity to choose the most comfortable working environment for themselves,”
Mr. Rodgers added.

Comfy will initially be available to Charter Hall tenants of 1 Martin Place and 2
Market Street in Sydney, 65 Berry Street in North Sydney, and 175 Eagle Street in
Brisbane.
