What are Intelligent Workspaces?

Intelligent workspaces are buildings where systems combine to give a commercially strong, innovative environment for staff, tenants, members and visitors.

When you use that connectivity to link all the technology and the people in the building together (linking voice, data, mobile & cloud connectivity), and tap into the Internet of Things (IoT), you can create buildings that are almost intelligent organisms.

With businesses being more dependent on data, connectivity and virtual communications than ever before, what can a intelligent workspaces do for your business?

When you take these technologies and bring them all together, you create a workspace that is highly efficient with a deep understanding of the behaviours of the people inside and how they can best interact with the space and personalise it to suit their needs.

An intelligent workspace will know when a room is in use, and by how many people, it will tell cleaning teams when a room needs cleaning whilst ensuring that unused areas are not marked for cleaning.

An intelligent workspace will adapt its energy consumption based on the density of people inside and the temperature outside. It will recognise a tenant from a visitor and manage them effectively and securely, it can help the visitor find their way around or show the tenant or member where is a quiet place to work or where is vibrant and busy.

By applying this level of innovation, a truly intelligent workspace becomes an intuitive hub that delivers a seamless experience from the initial connection to WiFi to the invoice raised for the services delivered.
