As people return to work, businesses can use Location Manager to make data-driven, people-focused, real-time decisions on spaces and equipment. Each component of the Location Manager solution works from a mobile app to power dashboards so businesses can safely re-enter and reoccupy the workplace.
Location Manager can help you understand occupancy ebbs and flows by day, week and month, and explore opportunities to smooth spikes in demands and eliminate areas of over utilization.
It can also provide insights on which teams, groups or functions are using which spaces to help make informed decisions regarding the space amount, type and layout to best suit the needs of employees, and the business.
This enables businesses to move from a waterfall model of space design/redesign to an agile model that continuously adapts to how the space is used, by making small frequent changes with the solution continuously monitoring the effects of the changes
