- Key-holding information
- Service requests, electronic libraries of documents, notifications, public displays, and/or data input by tenants.

"While BuildingLink has been known in the industry as a leading innovator of building management solutions for more than a decade, it is still nice to get the official credit for our inventions," said Jerry Kestenbaum, BuildingLink's CEO and founder. "This '321 patent, whose filing dates back to June 2000, is recognition of some of the pioneering innovations that have been integral to our company since its founding."
