Due to home office, meetings and increasing project work, desks are not permanently occupied and employers incur unnecessary costs. Desk sharing as well as consistent workplace management should help. However, many employees in flexible offices struggle with the daily search for a free workplace, project partners or desired peace and quiet. With iotspot integrated in BACHMANN's desk connection panels, employees book the desired workplace from home or directly on site.
Investing into the future: Since last year, BACHMANN holds a substantial share in the Dutch start-up iotspot. In the future, further ground-breaking cooperations will follow. "With intelligent and emotional products and services in electrical engineering and related digital worlds, we want to move into the future in a valuable and sustainable way and make everyday life easier for the people around us," adds Peter Bachmann, CEO Bachmann GmbH, and continues: "With our investment in iotspot we have taken an important step. Thanks to the smart workspace platform iotspot in our desk connection panels, employees arrive at the office relaxed, find their booked place and have a pleasant start into the working day".
Added value for the user
Workstations and meeting rooms can be searched and booked quickly and easily. The workspace platform iotspot convinces with an intuitive booking system, a sophisticated workspace management and numerous additional functions. At the same time, every workspace is equally provided with electronic connections by BACHMANN, such as sockets, data connections or charging options. Offices are thus comfortably equipped for all employees.
Using resources rationally
Low occupancy rates and high rents are a matter of the past: iotspot's Facility Monitoring provides office managers with analyses of workplace utilisation and thus valuable knowledge for cost and workplace optimisation. Predefined or individually configurable dashboards are used to evaluate, among other things, the use of workstations or meeting rooms over certain periods of time. The data is collected via workstation or room sensors in compliance with DSGVO and transmitted to the cloud via iotspot modules.
One system many features
The search function integrated in the app (if enabled) allows colleagues or project partners to be found quickly. In addition, employees can share free seats via a messenger and the recipient can reserve the seat via the link - nothing stands in the way of relaxed collaboration. In addition to room utilization and collaboration, optional sensors measure the room climate. Poor air quality is detected and can be improved in the long term.
