Smart Office with Sensor-Controlled Workspaces and Desks

Key Functionalities

Our sensor solution runs within our OfficePlace suite, integrates with Office 365 and filters data from sensors to adapt and handle various business scenarios. No more unnecessary administrative work to correctly see desk and meeting room availability.

instant meeting room booking

Instant Meeting Booking

Book a meeting when walking into an available room. Meeting room occupancy sensors will communicate to the Office 365 resource and let employees instantly book the room they walked into if it’s open and free.

movement will activate the sensor and enable Microsoft 365 to confirm the reservation

Automated Confirmations & Check-Ins

Movement within a meeting room or on/near a reserved desk will activate the desk sensor and enable Office 365 to confirm the workspace booking. Simplify and expedite room and space check-ins simply by showing up.

Smart Cancellations

Never waste workspaces again. If movement is not detected by a sensor on a desk after a while (customizable period), the workspace reservation will be cancelled. The space will then appear open for other employees to book or just sit down at the free desk.

end meeting early or extend your reservation

Adaptable Check-Outs

End meetings early or extend a room reservation. The sensor can smartly detect a lock of occupancy or prolonged occupancy and end or extend the meeting room booking.

understand no-shows with reporting

Understand No-Show

Weekly or monthly, run a no-show report to understand if employees are misusing the booking system and resources. Our Microsoft BI-powered OfficePlace Insights will enable you to identify misuse and adjust procedures accordingly to help save on costs and reduce waste.

associated resources and services are automatically cancelled

Smarter Resource & Service Management

Associated resources and services are cancelled when movement is not detected. Service suppliers are notified if an item or service is no longer needed and can either not provide the service or proceed to clean up the room for faster turnover.

Real-Time View of Available Workspaces

Always know what workspaces and resources are open or booked and simplify employee workspace management. When a sensor registers movement, the workspace or room will appear closed on Resource Central, Workspace and in-office booking system screens. Occupied spaces will appear red. The converse is also true. Workspaces where no movement is detected will appear green, or available. Workspace that gets automatically cancelled due to no-shows will update in real-time from red to green.

Flexible Bookings and No-Worry Cancellations

Many of today’s organizations have transitioned to a hybrid workplace model. Instant movement-activated bookings enable last-minute flexibility for employees. And sensor-informed no-show reservation cancellations can ensure workspaces are never wasted.

If an employee forgets to cancel a hot-desk reservation, no worries. The reservation will terminate automatically when no movement is detected. The Workspace app and any on-site booking screens will then update in real-time to show the workspace as available.
