    How iOFFICE Hummingbird Integrates with Other Workplace Solutions

    Glenn Hicks

    Workplace solutions are a core component of any business operation. Not only do these systems help streamline processes, but they collect valuable data that can lead to lower costs and greater efficiency.

    While these systems may be effective for individual departments, it’s important to look at how they function in a collaborative sense. Do employees have an easy way to access information from different departments? Are they able to do so while away from their desk?

    With iOFFICE Hummingbird, you have the best both of both worlds. Instead of going through the hassle of replacing existing systems, you can simply connect them to user-friendly apps that improve communication throughout the workforce.

    Here are a few examples of how iOFFICE Hummingbird integrates with your other workplace solutions.

    CAFM Software

    Having accurate space management data is essential for planning for the future. And the only way to be sure you’re getting accurate data is to start with computer-assisted facilities management (CAFM) software that produce polylined floor plans. (Note: Link to Nov. Blog 5)

    iOFFICE Hummingbird includes a proprietary plug-in allowing you to easily upload AutoCAD or Revit drawings into your space management module. This allows you to properly label every inch of space and give you a more accurate estimate of your true rentable square footage.

    Hummingbird-Request-DemoHR and ERP Software

    When it comes to managing daily HR tasks, many companies rely on enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. As more organizations move toward an activity-based working model where employees choose where to work on any given day based on what they’re doing, it’s becoming more difficult to keep track of people.

    iOFFICE Hummingbird integrates with employee directories and room reservation software allows for the steady flow of information across platforms. Using mobile apps, employees can easily find people and find places. a new employee is hired, all of their information from the HR system will transfer over to a user-friendly app. With the ability to auto-generate tickets, facility managers and IT are kept in the loop on new hires and have the means to better prepare for their arrival.

    Help Desk Software

    Businesses are always looking for ways to optimize the employee and customer experience. That’s why several use help desk systems like Zendesk to track and solve support tickets.

    By integrating help desk software with an integrated workplace management system (IWMS), facility managers have an easier way to receive and manage service requests. And with technology like iOFFICE Hummingbird, employees can easily submit service requests from their smartphone wherever they are.

    Calendar Applications

    Your employees are already accustomed to checking Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar to see what meetings they have each day. Because Hummingbird’s room reservation app integrates with calendar tools, they can book a meeting room wherever they are and have the location automatically added to their calendar.

    Your Existing IWMS

    More organizations are recognizing the value an integrated workplace management system (IWMS) can bring in the form of real-time data that allows you to make better business decisions. For instance, having space management software and room reservation software in the same place allows you to see not only how much available space you have, but how employees are actually using it. Thanks to iOFFICE Hummingbird, you have the ability to integrate these existing workplace solutions with employee-facing apps.

    Whether you already use our IWMS or you have another system in place, Hummingbird allows you to offer employee-facing tools that integrate with your software. Employees can easily find people, reserve rooms, make service requests and more. This closes the gap between the people who use your workplace and those who manage it, bringing your workforce and workspace into alignment.
