The rise of hybrid working has introduced some challenges which can be remedied with the use of data and insights – particularly to manage space utilization. Even if you have a scheduled roster of when employees will be office working, sometimes it is not this predictable, and the employee experience can be impacted by this.

Luckily, space utilization analytics have been designed to gather data related to the use of physical space within offices or facilities and help make informed decisions regarding space management.

There are a number of benefits to analyzing this data and with the support of Freespace’s Integrated Technology and Analytics & AI, this is even easier.

Integrated Technology & Sensors

At Freespace, we have a wide range of work occupancy and utilization sensors that can be integrated into your workspace to collect data and insights to manage space use.

  • People Counting: FLO sensors are placed at the entry / exit points to floors or specific areas (i.e. cafeteria) and use thermal imaging to capture bi-directional counts.
  • Single Occupancy: If you have multiple space types (i.e. desks, phone booths, etc.) then our ONE sensor is well suited. However, if you have a large, open plan office then wide area sensing using our TIM+ sensor may be a better solution.
  • Multiple Occupancy: The TIM sensor collects data on multiple occupants in one space (i.e. meeting rooms or open collaboration areas) and provide live updates on room usage, along with insights on the actual, average and maximum people in the room and where they sit.

All of our sensors have been designed to gather information to help organizations enhance their space configuration and utilization, provide optimal working conditions, and ultimately improve the employee experience. By using this data alongside our AI & analytics, you will be able to make data-driven decisions with confidence.
