As return to work plans continue to evolve and use of the office becomes increasingly unpredictable, analyzing the use of physical space becomes imperative. Failure to do so results in spaces that are wasteful, costly, unsustainable and inefficient to operate, which culminates in a negative employee experience. The only way forward is to leverage spatial intelligence to truly understand space and how people are using it in real time, and then use that information to identify patterns and make predictions.
Last year, VergeSense introduced its Return to Office dashboards, which offer customers insights into space usage, peak office attendance and the return-to-office trajectory. These insights, coupled with its Signs of Life™ technology, differentiate VergeSense from other workplace data and sensor technology on the market, as it uses AI to read the room like a human, taking into account passive attendance.
Ibrahim Yate, Senior Analyst, Verdantix, said: "The past few years, nearly everything we understand about the use of physical space has shifted. The old behavior patterns that were used to predict the use of space no longer apply. Firms need more sophisticated tools to identify patterns and insights in real time to optimize building management and employee experience. VergeSense is serving this need through its innovative spatial intelligence and workplace analytics."
Dan Ryan, CEO, VergeSense, said: "By understanding how space is used in real time, commercial real estate leaders and workplace strategists can reduce real estate and operations costs, increase productivity, improve culture and employee retention, and drive better sustainability. We will continue to innovate and improve upon our platform by introducing new AI and ML capabilities that offer our customers deep spatial intelligence. Our customers and partners will have the data and insights that lead to remarkable workspaces and impactful workplace decisions."
