What Is Smart Office?
A smart office is well equipped with an ecosystem of technologies to automate processes, optimize employee experience, and improve productivity. On one hand, employees can easily find, use, and collaborate in suitable workspace. On the other hand, facility and real estate managers can leverage multiple data to assist workplace management and decision-making.
