A constellation of factors has led to an incredible evolution in the way we work today. Between the explosion of 21st century technology, the influence of the gig economy, and the unique preferences of millennials in the workplace, it’s not surprising that organizations are rethinking their tried-and-true workplace strategies.
And it’s not just the fact that so many aspects of business are changing that causes us to pause. It’s also the rapid pace of all those changes.
The concept of the “office” dates back to ancient Rome when an office had more to do with the people making decisions than the actual buildings they occupied. It wasn’t until the 1700s—centuries later—that the idea of the office as a physical space for business activity began to take shape.
Today, a coffee shop can be an office. An airport lounge can be an office. The commuter train into the city can be an office. Thanks to modern technology, we have more spaces, places and connections than workers just a few decades ago could have ever imagined.
The pace of change has never been faster, and organizations of all sizes must get ahead of the evolution not only to compete, but to survive. Keeping up with change means using the right IWMS technology that will satisfy today’s reality as well as tomorrow’s vision.
In other words, you must adopt IWMS technology that grows with your dynamic workplace, even when the future is a moving target. Smart investors know it’s impossible to maximize your facility management software investment with piecemeal systems, costly upgrades and repeated replacement cycles.
Invest once. Get what you need in an IWMS for today, coupled with powerful scalability that’s ready when you are. Growth should bring positive energy to your business—supported by technology that’s built for the way you work in the real world.
Perhaps you’re managing a workplace that includes a headquarters building and one satellite office. Maybe 10% of the employees are remote. Consider how much your life could change overnight in the event of a merger or acquisition.
Are you ready to effectively manage more offices with dozens of meeting spaces, a large population of remote workers and an incubator hub with a steady stream of outside visitors? What about the long list of new assets that suddenly have to be tracked, maintained and deployed to keep your new, larger organization up and running?
That’s exactly why we’ve designed the iOFFICE suite of workplace management tools to help you “future-proof” your organization. Specifically, we’ve developed the next generation of IWMS that offers the strategic advantage of placing the employee experience at the center.
We believe in what you know to be true: Your IWMS is a serious investment, and it must be able to simplify, optimize and elevate both the employee’s experience and the workplace manager’s experience, while providing a measurable ROI.
It’s a tall order. And we can help you make it happen.
