- MySphere is Singapore’s first mobile app to connect businesses, residents and visitors across two integrated developments for smart, liveable communities

SINGAPORE – M+S Pte Ltd today announced its upcoming digital app, MySphere, a unified mobile platform for its Marina One and DUO developments, offering an integrated smart live-work-play management system that seamlessly combines smart controls, community management and lifestyle offerings.
The app will be Singapore’s first to be driven by its own ecosystem of assets and partners across two separate integrated developments, including over 1,600 luxury residences, 5.4 million square feet of office space and a mix of retail and F&B offerings, the Andaz Singapore hotel and urban amenities. MySphere aims to provide purposeful and convenient access to the full suite of comprehensive offerings at M+S’s landmark developments for a holistic live-work-play experience, all from a single interface.
MySphere will also be the first app in Singapore to offer office workers mobile turnstile access at office lobbies. Encrypted technology by HID ensures enterprise-grade security with commercial-grade firewalls. A quick tap of one’s device on the turnstiles at Marina One Offices and DUO Tower authenticates the user’s avatar, allowing office workers entry into the premises and automated lift assignment.
Residents and office occupants will enjoy privileged access to state-of-the-art amenities shared between both developments. These include auditorium facilities; event spaces; and hotel rooms, function rooms and ballrooms at DUO’s Andaz Singapore hotel.
In addition, the app will deliver the first seamless, completely automated visitor management system at both developments. Other features include e-booking of residential facilities, handyman services, mobile alerts for emergency evacuation and fault reporting.
MySphere will also feature bespoke concierge services and new, innovative service models. Residents, office workers and visitors can use the app to call for a taxi; make restaurant reservations; loan an umbrella, wheelchair or mobile charger and even request for a VIP escort. They will enjoy added conveniences and perks from M+S’s partnerships with other strategic lifestyle partners, including mobile commerce platform PageAdvisor and transport services like oBike and Telepod.
On the retail front, the app will offer privileges including special retail promotions and an M+S loyalty rewards programme.
Ms. Kemmy Tan, CEO of M+S Pte Ltd, shared, “We recognise the powerful opportunity to harness mobile technology to enhance the experience for those who live, work and visit Marina One and DUO. The app is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of our tech-savvy occupants who lead increasingly busy lives. In MySphere, we will be enabling the community at Marina One to tap into the amenities and services found at Marina One as well as those at DUO; and likewise for the community at DUO, they will also be able to enjoy the same cross-integration benefits.
“’MySphere’ aptly reflects M+S’s own sphere of influence provided by its tenants and assets, complemented by its network of lifestyle partners to access the all-encompassing live-work-play essentials and perks spanning both developments. The app will transform how residents, tenants and guests interact with the developments. This smart mobile platform is testament to our efforts to define new standards of live, work and play; meeting the digital demands of today’s generation.”
M+S appointed Habitap, a homegrown start-up for smart living technology by Philip Tang & Sons, to develop MySphere.
Franklin Tang, Chief Executive Officer of Philip Tang & Sons, added, “We are proud to partner M+S to pioneer Singapore’s first smart cross-integrated development app. M+S’s “My Sphere” app is a great example of how our mobile app development platform can help create better living, greater convenience and efficiencies for the diverse audiences of commercial, residential and retail spaces. MySphere offers a series of firsts for the local property space, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this technology as we gear up with Singapore’s Smart Nation drive.”
The MySphere app will be available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store in Q4 2017.
