Workplace management: smart and efficient with iotspot

Are you facing challenges from the change of work? Flexible workplaces are supposed to encourage mutual exchange, increase productivity and minimise costs. Often there’s a daily search for a free workplace, project partners or the desired peace. Using iotspot, you can turn the office into an employee’s favourite place to be.

Covid-19 has certainly been a catalyst for companies that hadn’t already established modern ways of working. Working from home is now an established feature for many employers and having a flexible, adaptable choice of workplace is a good way to maintain social distancing and safe ways of working as we return to the office. For employees, this is often a routine associated with stress – especially if this new style of working is regulated manually. Office buildings with systems that regulate the new situation via a smart platform are convenient and user-friendly to set up – a user app doesn’t just make it easier for employees to set foot into the new environment, but facility managers, HR managers and managing directors can also benefit from valuable evaluations thanks to iotspot.

On the app, ready, go! Get up, make a coffee, book a workplace – thanks to a smart user app, nothing stands in the way of a relaxed start to the working day. After downloading the app for free from the Apple or Google Play Store, employees can register and log in with their business email. The company’s stored locations appear on the start screen. Free workplaces for the day or for a specific period of time can be booked using either a detailed map or an overall view. Thanks to an integrated search function, colleagues or project partners can also be displayed and a workplace in the surrounding area can be secured. The overall view shows all workplaces, marked with colours to indicate their current occupancy status, so that employees can see live whether free desks are still available. An intuitive configuration app takes care of the details in the user app.

Everything at a glance: because the configuration app is easy to handle, the integration of iotspot is one of the advantages for those responsible for office complexes. Via detailed evaluations accessible at any time, facility management, HR managers or managing directors receive data and analyses on workplace utilisation and thus valuable knowledge for optimising costs.

However, it isn’t only desks that can be conveniently tracked. Sensors can be connected, allowing users to view the capacity and utilisation of meeting rooms. Measurement sensors detect the number of people present. In the long term, additional detectors that measure the temperature and CO2 footprint, among other things, will ensure a better-quality indoor climate in all areas of the office complex. Of course, the entire system is 100 percent data protection compliant. A tool for every requirement.

The advantages of flexible working are combined in one system for both employees and employers – even during pandemics. In real time, workspace operators can reduce desk capacity with the configuration app and thus comply with the distancing rules between colleagues.
