Higher occupancy rates

Schindler's PORT Technology delivers a vastly improved rider experience with passenger grouping by desired floor. As a result, tenants can enjoy increased productivity. Schindler's PORT Technology also gives tenants an individual, unprecedented level of customization and access control options that can ultimately increase your property’s desirability in the market.

Higher lease rates

By offering your tenants a higher level of service, including personalized service, your building will have the most advanced destination-dispatch system in the area. This allows you the flexibility to demand higher lease rates. With Schindler's PORT Technology, you can provide tenants their own routes, their own floors, their own destinations. It’s that personalized, flexible service that will help bring you the lease rates you deserve.

Lower energy costs

Schindler's PORT Technology can manage all passenger traffic in the most efficient manner possible. This assures highly optimized utilization of the elevator groups at all times, even under heavy traffic conditions.

The unique ECO (Energy Control Option) mode allows intelligent reduction of the elevators’ energy consumption without reducing the service provided to users. If current or forecasted waiting times fall below a defined acceptable value, ECO mode switches the unrequired elevators into standby mode, optimizing elevator usage. Thanks to the reduced number of elevator trips and improved balancing of the elevators, energy is saved. The amount of energy saved in the course of a day can be substantial. Since ECO mode dynamically monitors the traffic situation in the building, a high quality level of service is assured at all times.

Greater design freedom & flexibility

Integrating The PORT Technology into your building’s design will truly change the way you think about traffic management and elevator placement.

With Schindler's PORT Technology, you now have the potential to remove many of the existing constraints on interior layouts, thereby allowing you greater freedom when designing the next generation of buildings. Buildings of the future, with the help of Schindler and The PORT Technology, will provide the energy efficiency and design advancements essential to successfully attracting and retaining clients. With this state-of-the-art technology, a new world of creativity awaits you.
