The benefits of
One typical application of workplace analytics is on workspace scheduling. It lets you understand how different spaces (including meeting rooms, desks, or any other spaces) in your office are utilized and re-arrange it for the better. It comes in handy with the following applications.
Balance your inventory of different space
Quickly understand which rooms or desks are overbooked or underbooked and determine if you have enough of meetings room and shared desks, and if they are of the right size and in the right locations.
Track space usage efficiency
Discover if a space is fully utilized by your employees for the time they reserved. Drive comparative analysis between the reservation time versus actual usage time, the reserved space capacity versus actual participant number.
