Bravo, bravo, Brivo! Tighten up your workspace security with our new Nexudus integration.
Coworking spaces produce close-knit communities from various walks of life, some will be regular members of the space, others could be guests or visitors. With such diversity and large groups of people going in and out of spaces each day, security and flexible access control management are on top in the list of priorities for operators.
We are pleased to announce the integration between Nexudus and Brivo access security system! With this integration, monitoring and managing who goes in and out of your space just got simpler, flexible and much more secure. You now have the option of restricting unauthorised access to rooms that have not been booked or permitted to that particular member. Which enables tighter control of your space, while ensuring that all room usage can be tracked and paid for.
You can also say goodbye to duplicated keys and changing of locks, because duplicating a key card or a fob is absolutely impossible with a smart access control system and even if a case of stolen or misplaced card or fob occurs all that would be required is a change of code, rather than the costly option of having to change every single lock.
Additionally, If you are a multiple space owner and you have concerns regarding giving out several keys, here’s the good news, the integration offers access to multiple locations, meaning your members would only need one access key card or fob to move between your spaces.
Furthermore, the integration is prompted to store the names and emails of members with an access card or a fob and record every entry. Additionally, once a member’s contract has ended, we save you the hard work of manually removing the member’s information and their access to your space, this task is automatically carried out for you.
What exactly is Brivo?
Brivo is a cloud-based access control system that lets members access different areas in your building using either an access card or a fob. But wait, there’s more, your users will soon be provided with an option to access your space with their mobile phones.
So, how can the integration between Brivo and Nexudus help your space?
Below are some of the processes that you can automate when you integrate Brivo with your Nexudus Spaces account:
Flexible opening times: You are bound to have different plans that allow members to access the space at different times of the day. By integrating both systems you can synchronise the access conditions that each of the plans has in Nexudus with the Brivo user accounts.
Reports: When you integrate door access control in your space, you'll have a much better idea of who is coming and going and when.
Resources: You can link your Brivo account with the Resources like your meeting rooms or conference rooms that you have configured on your Nexudus account. This means that you can generate access keys for the Resources from Brivo when a booking is made via Nexudus Spaces.
Integrating Nexudus spaces with Brivo
First, you'll need to open an account on both platforms. If you already have a Nexudus account and you are interested in integrating Brivo in your space, you can contact Brivo. The Brivo team will tell you about the steps that you need to take to install the system and enable your account.
Access to your space is managed by Passes, Bookings for your Resources and Contracts for your desks and offices on Nexudus. These are the elements that you will need to link on your Brivo account, to grant the access rights that you want depending on the customers in your space. On Brivo, you can use different groups to manage different types of Passes, Resources (i.e meeting rooms) and offices that you have configured on your Nexudus Spaces account and link them later.

Nexudus Explore is a new reporting tool that enables you to analyse different parts of your business by collecting data and storing it in easy to navigate reports. It’s a powerful resource that contains information on how your customers and contacts interact with your space.
Zapier is a “connector” that enables you to integrate the different apps you use. Think of it as a translator that gets apps - including Nexudus - talking to each other and working together. Its main purpose is to save people time by automating tasks. What’s more, you don’t have to be a software developer to navigate it. With a bit of practice, anyone can use it.
We integrate with SALTO because they’re one of the access control industry’s leaders. The company’s API-first approach is unique in the access control world and gives full control to its partners, enabling real-time and seamless sharing of information. Nexudus’ collaboration with SALTO’s KS system allows for seamless transfer of members’ bookings from one system to another, providing operators with autonomy over how space is utilised.
Smart integrations also allow operators to remain resilient in challenging circumstances. As well as saving money and making the customer journey more streamlined, smart software can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for human interaction, which is particularly useful at the moment when everyone is trying to practice physical distancing.
We have just launched NexClicker, a digital tally counter that allows you to count in and out everything entering your workspace. Limit the number of people within your workspace, click them in, and click them out! Social Distancing in a coworking might mean you need to limit your capacity. NexClicker gives you an easy way to count in and out everyone who accesses your flexible workspace.
Here, at Nexudus, we aim to adapt to changes and have seen this as an opportunity to keep supporting you and your members through our platform. This why we have launched Nexudus Virtual Rooms, a secure remote conference service powered by Jitsi.
