The introduction of beacons, mobile apps, and sensors are making it easier for employees to work, whether in an office building or remotely, and for companies to increase both productivity and office space utilization. When combined with virtualization, mobile, and cloud-based technologies, these “smart offices” can determine where an employee is located and automatically connect and configure the right “things” (such as printers, monitors, or VOIP line), apps, and data to securely deliver the optimal workspace. The value is measurable. For example, in a smart meeting room with IoT devices, at the push of a button workers can join scheduled meetings or create an instant virtual meeting without having to worry about connecting to screens, audio or other devices, saving time to get the technology working. The IoT workspace provides real data on when and how facilities are being used so companies can better focus their investments.
