by Tiffany Bloodworth Rivers on March 19, 2018

It’s no secret that the employee experience is highly valued in the modern workplace. As its importance has grown, so has the need for workplace solutions that support it. That’s why many companies are turning to iOFFICE Hummingbird workplace solutions.

This set of workplace solutions is built around the needs of the workforce and features an intuitive user interface. Employees can access the tools they need via mobile apps, while workplace managers can see the other side of the same tools on their phones or desktops. This gives workplace managers real-time access to data about how employees are actually using the space, allowing them to be more responsive and make better business decisions.

So who exactly is benefiting from iOFFICE Hummingbird? We’ll introduce you to four different types of organizations who can leverage these workplace solutions.

4 Companies Benefitting From Hummingbird Workplace Solutions

1. Businesses Looking to Modernize Legacy IWMS Solutions

Some businesses have used the same systems and databases for years. While they want to preserve this data, they also recognize the disadvantages of older, clunky user interfaces. According to IWMS users, such interfaces can be a source of weakness and limit the degree of adoption.

With iOFFICE Hummingbird, businesses can continue to find value from data in their existing systems while adding a simplified user interface into the mix. More employees can then use the IWMS to perform day-to-day tasks — a common goal among facilities and real estate professionals.

2. Businesses Looking to Balance Out Real Estate Costs

Rising real estate costs are changing the way businesses look at space. For corporate real estate leaders and facility managers, there is pressure to reduce costs and move toward greater workplace flexibility.

Rolling out employee engagement apps helps to create balance. If an employee wants to book a space, all he or she needs to do is log into an app. The data collected from these bookings offers insight into which spaces are being used the most and helps leaders identify opportunities for cost savings.

3. Serviced and Co-Working Offices Seeking an Angle of Differentiation

With real estate costs on the rise and a desire for greater flexibility, more businesses are taking the co-working office space route. As occupants browse potential spaces, they are looking to amenities as a means of differentiation.

Digital apps are one way to achieve this. For instance, occupants may be excited to learn that logging maintenance issues is a simple process. By scanning the barcode of a building asset or space, they can easily communicate issues to facility managers and get them resolved faster.

4. Businesses Moving Toward Flexible Desk Assignments

When it comes to space rationalization strategies, activity-based working and hot desking are becoming popular alternatives to traditional arrangements. The financial incentive of such strategies is clear, but there are execution challenges to consider. Employees may find it difficult to find suitable workspaces, or there may be a lot of competition for certain spaces.

Self-service workplace solutions that allow employees to reserve space make this transition smoother. With interactive floor plan displays and booking systems, employees are able to reduce the amount of time spent searching for spaces and improve overall productivity.

Different companies have different reasons for choosing iOFFICE Hummingbird workplace solutions. What connects their experience is the improvement that the solutions bring to the employee experience.
