Activity-Based Workspaces Drive Cost Savings and Sustainability

In today's business landscape, sustainability has become more than just a trendy buzzword - it's now a critical aspect that companies must address. Among the many areas that require attention, one that often goes unnoticed is the effective utilization of office space. Taking a mindful and strategic approach to utilizing office space not only leads to substantial savings but also makes a meaningful contribution to the environment.

All from the palm of their hand

In the digital age, the convenience of managing our lives through a smartphone has become the norm, and the workplace is no exception. As we move forward, activity-based workplace software becomes not just a luxury, but a necessity. Employees now expect to navigate their office life with the same ease and efficiency as their personal life, all from the palm of their hand.

With a comprehensive workplace app, the daily aspects of office logistics become streamlined and intuitive. Picture this: an employee starts their day by reserving a parking spot through the app as they leave home. En route, they check the app to find which of their colleagues are in for the day and where they’re seated. Upon arrival, they use the app to book a meeting room with a simple tap, and while in a meeting, they quickly order lunch to be ready when they're finished. This seamless integration of office functions into a single platform isn't just about convenience; it's about transforming the office into a smart, responsive environment that adapts to the needs of its users.

Cost savings through office landscape optimization

According to data from our existing clients, optimizing the office landscape can lead to significant benefits. For instance, a company occupying 1500m2 of office space can save up to 5 million NOK in annual rental costs, reduce energy consumption by 260,000 kWh, cut cleaning expenses by 670,000 NOK, and, most notably, decrease carbon emissions by approximately 680 tons of CO2 each year.

By embracing activity-based workspaces, businesses can unlock the full potential of their office space, optimizing its utilization and fostering a productive environment.

As businesses look to the future, investing in such technology isn't just wise—it's essential for staying ahead in an ever-evolving corporate landscape.
