Editor’s note: Today’s post is by Ravi Mohan, General Manager, and Diwesh Sahai, Head of Engineering, for MyGate. The India-based company provides software for managing 20,000 residential housing communities throughout the country.

MyGate is a fast-growing company in India that aims to simplify the living experience in gated communities. Residents in over 20,000 communities across India use the MyGate mobile app to grant visitors entry, pay their leases, and get health and safety notices directly from management. 

Our app began with a focus on security management for residential communities, and has since become a central hub for updating residents about health and safety, and providing a marketplace for in-home services from third parties — with more features on the way. MyGate is currently used in over 3.5 million residences throughout India, and we’re continuing to scale our operations to bring these benefits to even more communities. 

Android Enterprise is key to keeping our employees connected no matter where their day takes them, thanks to strong security and effortless management. 

Finding the right balance with work profile

Our IT team uses Google endpoint management to enroll and manage our corporate-owned Android devices with the work profile. Our hybrid teams access Google Workspace from more than 2,000 devices, with a dedicated space for work apps in their profile.

Many of our teams prefer to complete quick tasks directly from their Android devices, like answering comments in a doc, replying to a thread in Gmail or updating a sheet.

Our sales teams are often on the go — regularly meeting with potential customers, checking in with current clients, and working from the office or at home. We use managed Google Play to enroll everyone’s device with the MyGate app, which our teams use to demonstrate to prospective customers how our service simplifies life in a gated housing community and gives residents a welcome and positive living experience.

Our employees are big fans of the work profile, especially the separation of company and personal apps. And our IT team appreciates the combination of security for company data and  privacy for our employees. We allowlist the specific apps that are essential to our employees’ daily work, so they always have them in the work profile. Managing updates and installing new apps through managed Google Play helps us keep everyone up to date with the tools they need. And employees like the privacy for the personal side of their device, with the ability to disconnect when they need to by pausing their work profile.

Keeping the connection

Android Enterprise also complements our growing Chrome OS device deployment. With our Chrome Enterprise upgrade management capabilities, we’ve been able to quickly give employees devices that are simple to enroll and ready to use. Google Meet has also been essential for team meetings and quick syncs, and has helped us securely scale our contact center team operations.

At MyGate, our goal is to provide safety and convenience to housing residents, right from their mobile device. By managing our company-owned smartphones with Android Enterprise, we are confident that we can scale quickly with strong data and device protection, and management controls for our security needs.

When you think of pyramids does your mind wander to the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt or the Mayan Temples of Guatemala? Great civilizations built each of these pyramids and inscribed their stories onto the walls of them, offering glimpses into their daily life.

The Pyramids of Meroë in Sudan, while lesser known, are no different. Today, you can explore these stunning pyramids, which are a UNESCO World Heritage site, on Google Arts & Culture.

Over 200 pyramids were constructed in Meroë, the third and final capital of the Kushite Kingdom, an ancient African civilization that ruled the lands of Nubia for over 3000 years. Now you can take a virtual walk through the Pyramids of Meroë and explore the inscriptions using Street View’s panoramic imagery. You can also learn more about the Kushite Kingdom, their royalty and the architecture behind the pyramids in an immersive web experience that’s available in a range of languages including Arabic, English, French, German and Spanish.

Taking green building to a new scale

To deliver on our commitment to operate every hour of every day on carbon-free energy by 2030, we prioritized renewable energy and maximized the solar potential of our buildings. Bay View’s first-of-its-kind dragonscale solar skin and nearby wind farms will power it on carbon-free energy 90% of the time.

The campus is also on track to be the largest project certified by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) under any of their programs, at any certification level. As part of ILFI’s Living Building Challenge, we’re targeting a Water Petal certification, meaning the site is net-positive with all non-potable water demands being met using the recycled water generated on site. Above-ground ponds that gather rainwater year round and a building wastewater treatment system serve as water sources for cooling towers, flushing toilets and irrigating the landscape. This is a big step toward delivering on our commitment to replenish 120% of the water we consume by 2030.

It doesn’t stop there. Bay View is an example of an all-electric campus and shows what’s possible in regenerative building. Here’s how:

  • The two kitchens that serve seven cafes are equipped with electric equipment rather than gas — a template for fully carbon-free cafes and kitchens.
  • There are 17.3 acres of high-value natural areas — including wet meadows, woodlands and a marsh — that are designed to reestablish native landscapes and rehabilitate Bay Area wetlands. Something that’s especially important as Bay View sits close to the San Francisco Bay.
  • The water retention ponds not only collect water for reuse, but also provide nature restoration, sea level rise protection, and access to the beauty of natural wetlands. New willow groves along the stormwater ponds provide resources for wildlife.
  • The integrated geothermal pile system will help heat and cool the campus. The massive geoexchange field is integrated into the structural system, reducing the amount of water typically used for cooling by 90% — that’s equal to five million gallons of water annually.

Seniors search what they see, using a new Lens

“Often, when I go for a walk, I stumble upon an unknown flower or a tree. Now I can just take a picture to discover what kind of plant I am standing before,” Verner Madsen, one of the participants, remarked. “I don’t need to bring my encyclopedia. It is really smart and helpful.”Seniors in a…

“Often, when I go for a walk, I stumble upon an unknown flower or a tree. Now I can just take a picture to discover what kind of plant I am standing before,” Verner Madsen, one of the participants, remarked. “I don’t need to bring my encyclopedia. It is really smart and helpful.”

Seniors in a country like Denmark are generally very tech savvy, but with digitization constantly advancing — accelerating even faster during two years of COVID-19 — some seniors risk being left behind, creating gaps between generations. During worldwide lockdowns, technological tools have helped seniors stay connected with their family and friends, and smartphone features have helped improve everyday life. One key element of that is delivering accurate and useful information when needed. And for that, typed words on a smartphone keyboard can often be substituted with a visual search, using a single tap on the screen.

Being able to “search what you see” in this way was an eye-opener to many. As the day ended, another avid participant, Henrik Rasmussen, declared he was heading straight home to continue his practice.

“I thought I was up to speed on digital developments, but after today I realize that I still have a lot to learn and discover,” he said.
