Desk management is so much more than just booking a desk. It is an understanding of your employees and their needs. And convert this into an efficient use of the office.
In our vision desk booking is just one part of successful desk management. It’s not only about booking desks and making the bookings transparent. Being able to find your desk easily, check in/out, and make sure unattended desks are automatically released, are all just as important. Especially for organisations that promote flexible or activity-based working. The combination of our software solutions with smart hardware is what makes GoBright unique.
Imagine you have booked a desk online. Once in the office you want to find your desk as quick as possible. Check the Mapping Screen in the department, or use the “Find my desk” option in the app and the GoBright intelligent hardware and signage devices (Connect & Glow) on your desk will start flashing. Thanks to the LED colour scheme you immediately know the status of each desk (available, occupied, needs cleaning, do not disturb), which is ideal for large open plan offices or departments.
Desk sensors measure the occupancy rate with 100% certainty. So employees can no longer occupy a desk and not be there at the same time. If the sensor does not measure any movement, after a certain amount of time, the desk will automatically become available for the next user.
Desk Management contributes to the well-being of your employees. They should be able to focus on things that are really important, without having to worry about uncertainties such as ‘Do I have a place to work when I go to the office? How do I find my workplace? Is my workplace clean? Can I organize my workplace according to my preferences?’
Occupancy measuring has become extremely important these days. 2020 is the year that everybody suddenly experienced flexible working and working from home. With both its pros and cons. Organisations are preparing on new ways of working and are adapting their offices at rapid speed. Occupancy measuring helps facility managers to assemble data on the usage of the desks. This will help to define a final plan for the number of needed desks. A lot of costs can be saved on cutting in the m2 of office space rental.
