The office world is based on a single principle since its beginnings:
1 person = 1 desk.
One's own desk always served as a private zone, place of retreat and one’s personal port of call. This used to lead inevitably to the conclusion that an empty desk means its user is off duty. New working environments challenge this tradition by offering different places of work in the office. Depending on the set task, the work is being done at meeting points, in breakout or project zones. Working from home or in a third place add more options to the traditional office world.
Consequently, the total occupancy of an office space can be increased without quality loss by simply using booking systems. Workstations, lockers or rooms can be booked in seconds wherever you are even while you are sitting on a train on the way to work. Transparent booking and visible occupation allow flexible desk management and let colleagues easily connect with each other.
The collected data offers insight into the use of office space and occupancy rates. With this information, companies can make the most of their space and save money as well.
The place of work is determined by the task
The traditional work desk is integrated into the digital office world where people decide about the where and when and the tools needed for the set task. Agile working environments with efficient and customer-oriented processes and short time-to-market cycles are based on these principles.
