Vancouver, BC – Tribe Property Technologies (TSXV: TRBE) (OTCQB: TRPTF) (“Tribe” or the “Company”) has partnered with Bluemyth Technologies (“Bluemyth”), a Canada-based internet application company that is bringing smart parcel delivery solutions to strata and condo buildings.
“We see this as an incredible opportunity to transform the community-living experience for those already living in multi-family residential communities in Canada,” said Joseph Nakhla, Tribe CEO. “Where upfront installation costs can be a common barrier for an existing strata or condo building, Bluemyth’s subscription-based model, inclusive of installation and maintenance fees, provides financial flexibility, while adding value to building.”
Tribe’s partnership with Bluemyth brings customized smart locker subscription services to Tribe communities, eliminating the need for residents to wait for parcels, while reducing the amount of time property managers and on-site staff, such as concierges, spend on managing the delivery of parcels. Tribe’s partnership team, with their deep understanding of strata and condo management, connects with Councils and Boards to navigate bylaws and set-up requirements, supporting the community through the process of bringing smart parcel solutions into the building.”
The surge in online shopping and home delivery isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. In 2021, Canadian shoppers made an average of 27.4 online purchases per year (up from 16.6 in 2019). Ecommerce site, Shopify, reported record breaking sales this Black Friday and commented on the growing importance of having goods delivered to consumers doors.
“With larger condo buildings seeing hundreds of package deliveries per day, a streamlined smart tracking system with storage capabilities is music to any property managers’ ears,” added Nakhla. “Our partnership with Bluemyth is indicative of how we are using technology to improve our managers’ and residents’ lives by delivering value-driven solutions to the building and community.”
Tribe’s Digital Partnership Program is focused on developing partnerships that elevate service offerings and convenience, while improving efficiencies and the overall benefits of living in a Tribe community. Tribe’s digital partners in turn receive the opportunity to connect with thousands of potential customers in strata and condo communities across Canada.
“We look forward to bringing our flexible, contactless, and secure locker solutions to Tribe communities to support the lifestyle and sustainable needs of residential communities, while freeing up property managers from managing hundreds of parcel deliveries. BlueBox, our smart parcel locker solution, will also positively impact the environmental aspect of Tribe Communities,” said Sheena Wang, COO of Bluemyth Technologies.
Tribe manages approximately 40,000 homes made up of more than 100,000 residents. The Company’s proprietary community management software Tribe Home is integrated into every community with its ability to connect, inform, educate and protect through the digitization and simplification of residential community living.
