The Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we view working. During the pandemic, many companies have been forced to implement strategies for flexible working. Companies that previously hadn’t thought this to be possible, are starting to see the benefits of flexible working. It is now of increased importance to make the most of real estate and support social distancing with smarter and more efficient desk management. In this article we’ll be building upon those themes, and explain how we can support your organization to make flexible working seamless.
What makes Kadence’s desk management solution unique?
Many desk and booking management solutions claim to enable the safe return to the workplace for employees. So what makes Kadence unique?
Kadence allows you to gather metrics and data on your employees, their behaviors and their actions to help better understand usage, movements and trends over time in a non-intrusive way. These sorts of metrics are normally gathered by investing in expensive sensors to track data that often has to be paired with a desk management solution. These data can help you optimize your spaces to reduce traffic, identify peak activity, ensure social distancing, and allow for easier management of your employees.
How it works
At Kadence we understand that safety is vital and are fully focused on delivering a seamless return to safe in-person collaboration. There are a number of considerations workplace leaders must make to ensure the safe return of their employees. Here are just a few of the key areas we can help you with:
- Touchless check-in and reservation
- Desk hoteling management
- Office and people capacity
- Social distancing measures
- Space usage analytics
Touchless desk check-in & reservation
To enable a safe, effective flexible working environment, employees should be able to find and reserve a space to work ahead of time, or when they arrive for the day. With a desk booking mobile app, they can automatically and seamlessly book and check in to that space, with data and insights being gathered on employee behavior and movement.
Social distancing measures for the workplace
With the need for social distancing in mind, many businesses will have to rethink their real estate strategies. Kadence’s real-time floor plan view shows how spaces are being used with regard to social distancing and office capacity. Knowing where people have been sitting in your spaces indicates which areas need more cleaning and have the highest density of traffic.
Employees can have peace of mind knowing they are able to book socially distanced desks, along with a clear, concise way to identify their reserved desk, and how to find their desk in a large building or office. They can also be assured that they will have a safe working environment with no concerns about hygiene.
Space management & analytics
Real-time space usage and management will add another level of accuracy to your desk occupancy data to optimize your workspaces to reduce traffic, identify peak activity and allow for easier management of your employees.
