GoSpace AI and JLL deliver a revolutionary solution for the post-pandemic, hybrid workplace

The new solution will provide AI-powered software to drive dynamic resource and space allocations through intelligent, automatic seating assignment methods.

11/02/2021 2 min read

GoSpace AI and JLL are joining forces to transform how occupancy is supported in the post-pandemic, hybrid workplace.

Combining GoSpace’s Artificially Intelligent Dynamic Resource Allocation engine (AIDRATM) with JLL’s innovative technologies and industry-leading workplace solutions, creates a dynamic occupancy planning and management offering featuring the first ‘always on’ space optimisation capability in the industry. This offering is part of JLL’s end-to-end product suite that enables agile, experience-centric workplace planning and management.

‘The pandemic has accelerated the demand for enhanced technology solutions in the workplace,’ says Cynthia Kantor, Chief Product Officer, JLL Corporate Solutions. ‘By staying agile in the ever- evolving, post-pandemic environment, we can re-imagine a workplace that enhances human performance, improves space utilisation and remains resilient.’

JLL’s innovative micro supply demand methodology leverages AIDRA to expand and contract office and footprint needs on a real-time basis, with an integrated view on the demand for space. The combination of several JLL technologies with AIDRA will activate dynamic zones, rather than static space assignments, an approach which grows or shrinks based on the ever-changing number of occupants coming into the physical workplace.

Once fully implemented, for single locations or an entire portfolio, the solution will integrate a dynamic employee facing reservation management capability that will help them request space assignments that can vary daily. This enables employees to collaborate effortlessly with colleagues and allows occupancy planners to manage the number of people in an area. It will also capture accurate utilisation data in a non-capital-intensive manner to identify space optimisation, maintenance and energy cost saving opportunities. This programme will be executed through three key, digital components: utilising AI-harvested data; running daily simulations to manage dynamic zones; and presenting smart space reservations autonomously.

‘The output of AIDRA, coupled with JLL’s current occupancy platform, will be a highly optimised space driven by the confluence of efficiency and effectiveness,’ explains Daniel Kirschner, JLL’s Global Lead for Portfolio Products. ‘This integration sets up the framework to enable our clients to migrate from static location management to a next-generation, ‘always-on’ portfolio solution, enabling smarter real estate decision-making,’ he adds.
