Frequently asked questions

What is the discovery session for?

We hold an onsite workshop with your project team to discover, assess and define which vertical transportation improvements your site may benefit most from. We then agree app configuration build and metrics for success.

What if we would like a feature not listed?

No problem. Highrise App is a base platform and IOT solution upon which custom functionality can be added. In fact, we actively encourage and work with clients to quickly and affordably build, prototype and deploy new features.

How do you calculate plan prices?

Our standard plan includes a one off payment for the hoist hardware and a service fee for each active hoist (billed monthly by CC or invoiced annually). Custom coding or advanced features may increase your plan prices.

How do I cancel my account/service?

Highrise App is flexible. To cancel or put-on-hold your Highrise service, head to your account management page and select the option to 'close account' or 'suspend service'. Visit our help site to see further instructions.
