    Companies that provide engaging workplaces are rewarded with happy, productive employees. There is no doubt that how and where we work is changing. The evolution of the modern workplace is being driven by demographics, the growing gig economy, and technology trends that are making smart buildings even smarter.

    Indoor location data and IoT applications are revolutionizing how commercial real estate is managed to reduce operating costs and improve tenant experiences. The “smart buildings” of a decade ago look practically antique when compared to commercial real estate today.

It was about being “green.” But nowadays, building managers and tenants expect more value from facilities management solutions.

We agree: smart technology enables people to work smarter and more efficiently. Applied in a smart building context, it gives people tools to carve out the time and space they need for their work within a busy office setting.

  • Retail spend on IoT to increase fourfold by 2020

    While there is a lot of spending on IOT technologies to help retailers build the stores of the future, the lack of a single, turn-key product prohibits any solution from scaling across a retail chain. That is why we still can not use our Smartphone to find products in a store despite the significant efforts by retailers to deliver this desired experience. We believe the platform that can deliver on that experience MUST be turn-key and have the flexibility to enable use-cases far in to the future.
