DeskIoT: Desk Occupancy Management

With DeskIoT you get a cost-effective IoT solution. Gaining insights into how often and at what times desks in your facilities are used. Predicting attendance in public sites by counting the number of times, for example, a desk is used and enable cleaning and correct number of available desks.

Challenge or problem: What is the utilization rate of, for example, office space desks in your facilities? During what hours and days of the week do you reach peak attendance in your offices, kitchen space, meeting areas, and other public sites? Without qualified and reliable information, it is indeed a challenging task for facility managers to make plans, optimize resource allocation, and take good decisions on a day-to-day basis. What options exist, are usable, and make sense for obtaining actionable data that can be used to create relevant plans, and to confidently take the right decisions to, for example, optimize return on investment (ROI) in the long run?
Solution: Monitoring desk occupancy, providing presence detection, and delivering insights that enable improved facilities management performance
Result: By placing sensors at offices desks room utilization can be monitored. Metrics and statistics are visualized in WebIoT and the measurements can be used to improve booking processes for rooms. Placing sensors on desks in an open and flexible office space can clarify how often the desks are used. Spatial meeting room and desk usage patterns can be identified, which allows for space efficiency optimization and potential improvements in the office layout. By placing sensors will enable monitoring of peak occupancy trends and usage frequency to be identified. This information can be used to optimize staff resource allocation and predict the need for cleaning, refill of supplies and accessories within that space. The sensors can be placed in restricted access locations. When presence is detected, WebIoT can generate and send an alarm.
