Best Practice In Using Sensors To Measure Workplace Occupancy

OpenSensors has produced a best practice guide that discusses how to solve the space utilisation challenge with technology.

The guide explores the key buying decisions when integrating workspace occupancy technology and covers everything from types of space utilisation sensors, key metrics to monitor and how to get started on a project.

The task of ensuring available space by monitoring desk and meeting room utilisation has been a logistical challenge for many facility and real estate teams. The advent of new low power wireless connectivity and the unobtrusive GDPR compliant occupancy sensors that are replacing cumbersome manual tactics to solve this problem are also covered in the OpenSensors' best practice guide.

Making Data Driven Workplace Change Decisions 

In a previous webinar, OpenSensors provided tips on how to leverage space utilisation data to optimise desk occupancy and space management planning.

If you follow he registration process, you will now be able to access a full recording of the session which was led by Daniel Hummelsund, Business Operations Manager for Opensensors who works with customers to understand business objectives and to ensure best space utilisation.

How To Measure Desk Utilisation Rates

Daniel explained how to measure desk utilisation to understand which offices in your real estate portfolio are mostly used compared to those with lower usage.

The session also covered using data to make evidence based workplace change decisions and strategies that allow you to work smarter and efficiently as well as:

  • Reduce real estate cost - Identify which office location use their desk space the least and reduce office size accordingly.

  • Accommodate new headcount - Use occupancy data to quickly allocate space when needed and improve your space planning management process.

  • Real time data - 24-hour access to data on how desk space is used across your real estate portfolio.

  • Monitor trends - Build up a bank of data to identify patterns of usage. Understand your asset distribution and monitor utilisation by day of the week.
