IoT-Enabled Buildings Improve Worker Productivity

According to CEB Global, a typical employee spends 27 hours a year looking for a location to work, which can cost the average company $31 million in productivity annually. The Internet of Things (IoT) can improve productivity in office spaces.

Consider this example: Workplace Fabric’s flagship Freespace solution is a cloud-based analytics solution that analyzes real-time data collected from 1000s of sensors deployed across high rise and distributed office spaces to improve tenant satisfaction. Freespace addresses the challenges of the modern office, which is increasingly impacted by a more connected and mobile workforce that requires flexible spaces designed for collaboration.

Bridging the gap between human actions and intelligent automation on a distributed scale clearly illustrates the value of IoT. This helps users discover the best suited available space across the office in real-time, while providing facility managers with the usage data they need to cut costs and improve tenant satisfaction.

With technology such as this, employees can identify available workspace in real-time. This type of IoT platform is the future and the sensors deployed in the buildings need to be installed, with electrical grids needing upgrades in older buildings. Contractors who recognize that will have an upper hand in getting these types of jobs.
