Efficient enterprise space utilization has become pivotal. With the pandemic hitting on us on and off, organizations returning to work, have begun to widely adopt a hybrid workplace model. This involves keeping a close track of space that is being utilized and most importantly space that is being wasted/underutilized.
Tracking, monitoring, and optimizing space utilization will need insightful data about the available space at any point in time. This, in turn, involves comprehensive yet interpretable data that answers cardinal questions like:
Undoubtedly, employee well-being and effective utilization of your facilities are the priority. However, you also need to be wary about exceptions like budget constraints and this prolonged phase of uncertainty due to the pandemic that needs to be handled.
According to a report by IBM, 30-40% of commercial space is underutilized.
Data on space utilization will support you to make informed and data-driven decisions. Inappropriate data that involves manually intensive work to derive them will impact the quality of critical space-related decisions. Therefore, you should aim to maintain real-time occupancy insights that will help you harness business-critical information and react to changing business demands.
Having said that, though we understand that workspace utilization demands accurate occupancy data across available workspaces, this may include a few challenges like the following:
IBM TRIRIGA Building Insights can help you emerge successfully and overcome these challenges. IBM TRIRIGA Building Insights uses IoT data, AI, and inputs from TRIRIGA to provide insights about occupancy levels and usage metrics about your facilities.
To add on, TRIRIGA Building Insights dovetails with Cisco DNA to help you better understand space utilization trends, metrics, and any anomalies that may be associated with them. This data empowers you to identify underperforming workspaces and also supports you in optimizing their utilization.
Here is how TRIRIGA Building Insights works and helps you monitor and manage space utilization/occupancy levels.
TRIRIGA Building Insights helps to bring together critical utilization and occupancy metrics on a comprehensive and easily interpretable dashboard. It fetches data from IoT devices along with key planning attributes from space records that have been defined in the TRIRIGA facilities manager. This data is then delivered in an easily digestible way through simple data visualization on space usage.
TRIRIGA Building Insights uses pattern recognition techniques and Watson Machine Learning to understand and determine the relevant working days about your organization. Furthermore, it learns occupancy behavior to predict the attendance of employees/occupants and continues to learn and adapt to shifting trends.
TRIRIGA Building Insights helps in removing anomalies like days that do not match the predicted occupancy for your enterprise. This paves the way to make informed space allocation decisions without events that harm the obtained dataset.
TRIRIGA Building Insights natively integrates with Cisco DNA spaces and helps measure floor occupancy across your organization. Furthermore, this serves as a base to scale space utilization across your facilities.
