Although organizations once poured money into designing their infrastructure just right for employees, flexible rentals have still taken over. Now, as workspace culture continues to shift, companies are leaning towards flexible offices equipped with tech-centric amenities.
Companies are now offering more various tech amenities, such as automated door locks and app based service bookings, to set themselves apart from the competition.
Now, clients coming into some offices can be expected to be greeted with tablets integrated with visitor management software instead of a front desk receptionist.
Buildings that are IoT-driven allow for simple manual operations. IoT also allows for smart surveillance, energy management and collection of data in real time to smooth out every day operations.
Meeting rooms are also being taken over by digital flipcharts and smart screens that allow for more capabilities than your average white board.
App-based service bookings give users easy access to see what meeting rooms are available. This sort of software can also include food orders and other business services such as tax counseling and HR support.
Another simple technological improvement is app-operated door locks that are providing more security and convenience in the workplace.
