- Tenants - How can I better understand my workplace performance and improve employee engagement, productivity, mobility, collaboration, wellbeing, and experience?
- Landlord - How can I better understand the ways our customers are using our spaces (workplace, lobby, retail, end of trip) so we can improve our service offering?
Commercial office space is the second highest business cost behind employees, which is why smart sensors deployed within the office environment present a huge opportunity for corporate real estate executives. Historically corporate real estate executives could only understand space utilisation using manual, human observation techniques or expensive and hard to maintain under desk sensors. However, the latest in smart sensors combined with artificial intelligence and data analytics is providing unique insights into how space is being used, in real time. This data is increasingly being shared with workspace planning and management solutions to enable data driven space planning activities.
Innovative corporate real estate groups are deploying environmental sensors (light, temperature, indoor environmental quality, sound) alongside occupancy / presence detection and location services to complete the picture and provide insights into why spaces are or aren’t being used that in turn drives continuous improvement opportunities.
Beyond the tenant, smart sensors also present a significant opportunity for landlords. By procuring and installing smart sensors into a building, landlords can save on energy, cost and generate new insights to provide added value to tenants, thereby generating a new revenue stream or creating a market differentiator. Additionally, understanding the air quality, thermal comfort, lighting, and acoustics in buildings can be used to inform future design criteria to create healthier buildings for tenants.
