Computers and file cabinets held all of the information they needed to do their jobs, so they worked in a central office environment. Mobile technology has transformed our workplaces. The workforce has become more mobile and is now distributed across many locations.

One of Denmark’s largest universities, the University of Southern Denmark has more than 19,000 students and nearly 4,000 staff members. The university holds many internal meetings that take place across 55 meeting facilities, so they needed a way to streamline the meeting planning process.

Large Housing Association in the UK Saves £1 Million Per Year with Hot Desking - Add-On Products Blog

The Genesis Housing Association is a leading housing association in the UK that provides homes to more than 100,000 people. In 2014, the organization planned to relocate to a new flagship office in Camden, London. This move was part of a two-year plan to lower costs and create a more flexible and efficient workplace.
