What are Smart Office Solutions? In the introductory segment of our webinar series Smart Workplace Sessions on February 3, 2021, we discussed how space and workplace software solutions help firms manage their space more efficiently and improve their employees’ workplace experience, while making a positive impact on the environment and society.
Over the past three years, space and workplace management have rapidly risen to the top of the corporate real estate agenda as occupiers become increasingly alert to space inefficiencies and look to enable an agile workplace.
To drive the smarter usage of space, firms are implementing a range of technology solutions – and perhaps more importantly, smarter ways of working flexibly and sharing costly resources.
Susan Clarke, Research Director at Verdantix, Maija Patjas, Head of International Relations, Optimaze, and Pontus Kihlman, Head of Business Development, at Rapal joined forces to talk about the basics of what the smart space and workplace management software landscape has to offer. Below, please find the recoding of this webinar.
