- Use Cases
Enterprise Wayfinding Platforms are bringing mapping and location-aware technologies to the digital workplace, improving productivity and workplace management.
As workplaces become more agile and complex, employees need access to tools that help them quickly locate and book resources, such as: conference rooms, hot desks, telepresence rooms, huddle rooms, and even one another. Integrating mapping, wayfinding, and location-aware technologies with AV and Technology Management tools makes these resources more accessible to employees. At the same time, the combination of these technologies brings new insight into employee work patterns and space usage, providing employers and facilities managers with real-time data that can be used to design workspaces that are better suited to an increasingly transient, agile workforce.
Corporate wayfinding apps makes it easy for employees to locate and reserve workspaces and meeting rooms, directly from their mobile devices. This helps remove the confusion associated with booking and locating meeting rooms and workspaces.
Most employees are familiar with their immediate surroundings. Giving them the tools to confidently reserve and locate meeting rooms beyond their immediate environment helps balance resource usage across a campus.
Location-aware software can collect real-time data on employee work patterns, thereby helping facilities managers design workspaces based on actual employee work patterns, rather than relying solely on research and surveys.
Wayfinding software gives employees vital location and contextual information about resources available on a campus, their proximity to resources, and the availability of resources. Employees and Employers benefit from increased productivity, while facilities managers learn more about space utilization that will help drive future decisions on space management and allocation.
