All About the Space Utilization Platform
What is Space Utilization?
Space utilization is how effectively you’re using the workspace. Space utilization is important because it affects people’s work itself. Ask yourself if employees have enough space to comfortably complete their work or if they have the appropriate spaces to complete it. If the answer is no, then employees’ quality of work may suffer. By measuring space utilization, your company can plan for growth, understand facility costs, and prevent workplace conflict. You will gain a thorough understanding of your company’s office space and how to maximize ROI. Optimizing space utilization will transform your company into a highly productive market player (see “ACHIEVE PEAK REAL ESTATE OPTIMIZATION WITH VUSPACE” for more on space utilization metrics).
What Are Space Utilization Platforms?
A space utilization platform is powerful software that reveals insightful workplace data. This data improves space utilization and thus employee productivity. Through space utilization platforms, you can understand your total costs and forecast future needs. They simplify space planning and collect your floor plans into a single, interactive display.
Benefits of Space Utilization Platforms:
- Integrate with Existing Technology – Integration with the hardware (including sensors) located throughout your office space creates a smooth, unified system.
- Capture Workplace Data – Space utilization platforms capture data from sources such as sensors to provide real-time data on occupancy and space utilization.
- Identify Space Utilization Trends – Space utilization platforms reveal data from throughout the organization, allowing facility managers to track space use and correct any inefficiencies.
- Support Flexible Work Environments – One of the main goals of creating a flexible work environment should be increasing employee productivity and happiness. Desk sharing can improve communication and employee satisfaction.
