How Smart Spaces Optimize Cost, Compliance, Security, and Productivity

The exciting thing about the Internet of Things (IoT) is that it lifts the veil on an entirely new realm of untapped potential, that just wasn’t within our grasp before it came about. The promises of IoT are no longer the lofty fantasies of science fiction, they are practical realities that offer an exciting breadth of opportunities worth exploring.

When we talk about IoT, in the technical sense, we are referring to networks of cameras and sensors that reveal how space is really being used, and unlock new potential ways to use space more effectively. This real-time data is collected into ARCHIBUS, where it’s melded with KPI dashboards, interactive data models, and a framework that can be used to plan and execute optimized space strategies.

Different types of tech make more or less sense depending on the circumstances and needs of a space and its occupants, so each implementation depends on your organizational goals. Here below is a list of ways that IoT-enabled smart spaces can optimize the cost, productivity, compliance, and security of your organization.

  1. Reduce Your Real Estate Footprint
  2. Identify underutilized facilities and space, down to the seat.
  3. Create a More Productive Workplace
  4. Configure your space around purpose and support productivity with innovative space-sharing.
  5. Real-Time Accountability for Space Use
  6. Bill occupants for actual space used, and for spaces that are booked but unoccupied.
  7. Forecast Occupancy for Project Planning
  8. Track trends in space use to plan for future space needs.
  9. Protect and Monitor Secure Locations
  10. Use heat mapping to monitor activity in secure locations.
  11. Comply with Space Capacity
  12. Use accurate, real-time headcounts to ensure that spaces comply with capacity regulations.
