Envoy, a technology platform that allows property owners to implement mobility as a community amenity, celebrated its launch with a reception in Culver City, Calif., on April 27.

The service is now available in Waves residential complex in Marina del Rey, Calif. Several more residential location launches are planned in Los Angeles and one in Boston for spring 2017, according to co-founders Aric Ohana and Ori Sagie, who come from real estate and investment backgrounds.

“Envoy was built by real estate experts for the real estate industry,” said Sagie.

Envoy’s closed carsharing platform is not open to the public, but it's rather made available to residents of various property types, including residential buildings, hotels, hospitals, commercial properties, and student housing.

“In the amenity war, real estate operators are consistently searching for unique options that will attract new and diverse residents,” said Ohana.

The app-based platform is designed to integrate with a property’s access controls. Property owners can allow tenants to pay directly for usage or pay the fee themselves. The system also offers revenue-sharing and vehicle branding opportunities.
