Occupancy planning

Making informed decisions on your space based on data that you can trust

Occupancy planning

Amidst all the uncertainty, one aspect that is for certain is real estate portfolios are going to need to adapt in the ‘New Normal’ in response to varying factors. These elements include changing space requirements produced by physical distancing requirements and new occupancy rates, a growing emphasis on employee and customer experience, the emergence of remote working and the need to integrate more resilience and flexibility into portfolios in order to respond to unseen shocks on the horizon. In short, the challenge is to enhance employee and customer experience in buildings, while identifying cost-savings and opportunities for greater flexibility and agility. So where should you start with addressing these seemingly conflicting factors and creating workplaces and portfolios adapted to the ‘Next Normal’? The first step is to have all the accurate information that you need to make informed and valid decisions on your portfolio and spatial needs. You need one source of truth with ready access to occupancy data that you can trust; data that empowers you to make critical decisions confidently and quickly in order to respond agilely to changing business needs.
