Offering self-service capability for workers on the move, e.g. a room or desk booking app with Outlook integration
For information and engagement, eg helping workers locate the right space or colleague
These connect meeting participants seamlessly, saving time and creating meetings that work
Panels and other room
Integrated with the in-room experience, for information and supporting the provision of services such as catering.
Occupancy sensor technologies
Giving real-time information on space and people, giving people a fast route to locate what they need
eg VC and AV, which can connect staff wherever they are.
Further technologies are on their way, including AI and automated tools for repetitive tasks, but because AI is still developing and workplace metrics are being gathered, AI support is still a future reality.
3. Building infrastructure
Everyone’s talking about the Smart Building these days. Important elements of building infrastructure to consider are:
Greater integration of building controls and building systems – 68% of respondents in a recent survey said they were planning to invest.
the internet of things will provide more and more useful data on how a building and its facilities are being utilised.
FM executives globally say they are planning to increase investment by 50%. It’s a priority for many organisations.
Because these innovations – and the management reports created by meeting software – give insight how your workspace is being used, evolving building technology will make workplace transformation easier and more cost-effective.
