OTTAWA, ONTARIO: Relogix this week revealed they have officially surpassed over 20 million square feet of workspace measured globally. The insights the Relogix Workspace Analytics Platform has captured already have huge financial repercussions for real estate and office-based businesses and are shifting the way organizations look at their workspace and real estate. 

“In October we announced $4 million in funding and that has allowed us to scale up and deploy quickly for some key global clients,” Andrew Millar, Founder and CEO of Relogix explains, “the early data coming back from those projects makes for impactful case studies and shows real ROI. It prompted us to refresh and refocus the brand and set out a more aggressive growth plan.” 

The data has been staggering, in one case study, from a large-scale but traditional office-setting style client, Relogix found a 52% vacancy rate for all workspaces during prime work hours, and of the team members present only a 25% occupancy rate for their dedicated desk spaces. This information illustrates patterns of usage and characterization of space which can save organizations hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. (Read the full case study online.)   

Additionally, the findings suggest that almost every organization has the wrong amount and wrong sized meeting rooms, almost every organization has a significant amount of space not being used effectively, and almost every organization has employees that are negatively affected by the current provisioning of the workspace. (This includes the formerly popular “open concept” offices.) Relogix now has the data that proves they can identify and provide a solution for all of these issues.
