The proptech industry is finally seeing a rebound after experiencing a slowdown during the heat of the pandemic.
This emergence comes at a time when companies are reevaluating how their offices should function, keeping in mind the new health protocols that will be needed to bring employees back in.
So how does proptech play a role in making the workspace a safe place to return to?
For starters, CRE companies that once used manual methods of monitoring office safety can now incorporate tools that make it easy to keep track of how well the office is running.
For instance, leaders can use this type of technology to ensure that air quality is optimal, occupancy levels stay at healthy levels, and that employees use keyless entry to access the office.
Not only does IoT make environmental management much easier, it also means employees are more likely to stay on at their positions if they feel safe. Additionally, companies can enjoy cost savings due to being able to cut down their energy usage.
