SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON, June 23rd, 2016 – Today eeGeo, the global 3D mapping company, launched its Smart Workplace solution at Silicon Valley real estate conference RealComm. The solution will enable businesses to transition to a smart workplace environment through optimising space and resource usage as well as employee time, with a view of reducing costs and increasing company profitability.
eeGeo Smart Workplace is supported across web, mobile and VR platforms. It enables businesses to build personalised 3D representations of real estate with seamless transitioning of interior and exterior mapping. The solution delivers clear ROI twofold, through enabling employee productiveness and utilising building usage data to reduce under-utilisation of space.
Improved time management
The advantages brought by Smart Workplace encompass saving time in locating other people within the building as well as using resources more effectively. This includes finding, booking and using meeting rooms in addition to utilising hot desking environments and key corporate facilities.
Visualising the working environment with geospatial accuracy - right down to plug sockets - provides employees with an invaluable orientation tool, reducing time spent navigating around the building to locate either people or assets.
The solution encourages collaboration between staff and management to report ongoing service and facility issues within the workplace. This ensures the necessary management team is alerted to problems, faults and hazards both efficiently and effectively.
Furthermore, it is set to ensure working issues are logged and dealt with in a timely manner. Employees that have reported an issue can track the progress in real time and receive notifications once resolved. This saves both management and employees’ valuable time, as communication is automated each step of the way.
Smart Workplace enables businesses to utilise data analytics relating to building usage, opening an opportunity to use real estate to its full potential. The solution visualises data sets relating to asset and resource usage as well as collecting live information on building use.
Businesses can quickly, and easily, derive actionable insights that can optimise efficiency and reduce costs. By monitoring assets within the premises, usage patterns can be correlated to gain insight into anonymous staff behaviour, informing decision making to help reduce costs and minimise resource wastage.
Moving to a smart working environment
Today’s workforce is ever evolving and with trends moving towards hot desking and remote working, the structure, layout and contents of the workplace could change on a daily basis. Smart Workplace enables businesses to dynamically update these elements in real time to ensure their 3D representation of their working environment is geospatially accurate.
Ian Hetherington, CEO and Founder at eeGeo stated, “We worked with Cisco Systems to develop a highly detailed and dynamic 3D interior map of its Customer Experience Centers (CXC). Our aim was to use this space to its full potential and more importantly enhance visitor interaction and experience at the site. The result is a perfect example of how location based services can deliver engaging personalised mobile experiences for employees. Cisco is now able to provide a better experience of its venue for visitors before, during and after attending briefings as well as enhancing communication of their product and solution information.”
