Why Your Workspace Data Needs To Be Telling You The Whole Truth
If your job is to look after buildings, then there’s never been a more critical time to be told the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
And when we say “truth”, we’re talking about comprehensive workspace data. In other words, real-time intelligence that tells you how your building occupants are working on a day-to-day basis. If you don’t have any occupancy analytics today, then now is the time to consider making that investment.
Thanks to advances in technology, occupancy analytics can pave the way for better and more informed decision-making, about how workspaces should be utilised and optimised.
Occupancy analytics can tell you things like:
• many people are in your office at any one time
• desks they’re booking and using – and for how long
• meetings are taking place most and the actual meeting time compared to the booked duration
• is booking and using what space, when, and for how long
• preferences they have, in what spaces. For example technology, temperature, and lighting choices
Meeting room occupancy analytics and transforming the employee experience
• further cost efficiencies of the building.
• organisations to reach carbon neutrality targets.
• the employee experience to engage and retain staff.
• advances mean that facilities managers have access to rich occupancy analytics to inform better decision-making.
• integration of Bluetooth location services into a network of smart sensors gives facilities managers visibility of who is doing what within their building.
• not only makes the building user experience a better one, it means there’s less guesswork for the facilities manager, in trying to determine how their building is being utilised.
• placed under desks can also help facilities managers to better allocate desk space to building occupants.
• intelligence (in the form of occupancy analytics) is needed now – not just because of Covid-19 – but because of the array of responsibilities organisations must fulfil.
