The Smart Office
In recent years, the profound transformations of the world of work, accelerated by the Covid crisis, have allowed the emergence of a new hybrid work model. In this unprecedented context, it is essential for companies to reinvent themselves by now placing the employee experience at the heart of a new working environment, the Smart Office.
Flexible, nomadic and agile workspaces
Remote or in-person? Space for creativity or concentration? Group reflection or solo work? Place of relaxation or formal meeting? It is no longer the space that determines the function but the need of the user who now creates the space according to their needs.
Professional activities are no longer associated with a specific place, the office, because each day can vary according to preference or the tasks to be carried out. Welcome to the era of flex office, a hybrid work organisation where a free routine supports the well-being, productivity, creativity and commitment of your employees.
The flex office space, an essential lever of the Smart Office
By ending the era of the traditional open space, the flex office offers companies a modern employee experience adapted to new and current health challenges. However, it is impossible to take full advantage of these optimised workspaces without suitable solutions and equipment.
Mobile apps, desk booking software and QR-Code are used to manage or confirm online room bookings, interactive dynamic displays and office smart labels facilitate employee journeys or internal communications, tools monitor employee remote work days and smart office login, web based visitor management systems in your smart buildings… The Smart Office offers your company a technological infrastructure that ensures optimum flex office space management.
