IoT and Space Planning: Which Integrations Provide the Most Value
Partnership Integrates SpaceIQ’s Powerful CAFM/IWMS Facility Management Software with Tapdn’s Advanced IoT Platform to Deliver Unparalleled Insights for Workplace
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., September 21, 2018 – SpaceIQTM, the leading workplace operating platform that enables customers to make smart, data-driven facility and workplace management decisions, has partnered with TapdnTM, an IoT platform that harnesses data from wireless sensors to improve workplace utilization, to provide a single solution that delivers comprehensive insights for workplace optimization. Available now through Tapdn, the integrated platform is the only product of its kind on the market.
Tapdn, launched earlier this year by CORT Business Services (a Berkshire Hathaway company), supports agile workplaces with IoT-driven reports that allow businesses to monitor individual and shared space utilization so they can use space and business assets more efficiently and reduce costs. Tapdn’s IoT platform integrates with building operating systems and cross-departmental planning functions, providing data to facility management professionals through Tapdn’s web-based portal.
“We’re excited about partnering with SpaceIQ to deliver the industry’s best space planning capabilities to our customers,” said Allison Ballard, executive director at Tapdn. “By integrating SpaceIQ’s software into our platform, we’re making it possible for professionals who are optimizing their workplace to get a complete view of utilization and develop and model plans on a single platform.”
SpaceIQ consolidates data from multiple enterprise systems and provides easy-to-use analytics to support efficient workplace utilization and drive decision-making on current and future workspace requirements. SpaceIQ enables smart planning and scenario modeling to help facility and corporate real estate managers transform their workplaces from a cost center to a competitive advantage.
By adding SpaceIQ’s industry-leading computer-aided facility management (CAFM) and integrated workplace management system (IWMS) capabilities, Tapdn is offering a comprehensive solution for the modern workplace. With the combined power of SpaceIQ and Tapdn, companies can perform data measurement, data analysis and space planning — all on a single platform.
“This is a mutually beneficial partnership that will deliver unprecedented insights to customers,” said Jeff Revoy, co-founder and chief operating officer at SpaceIQ. “With Tapdn’s advanced sensor technology and reporting capabilities driving smart workplace asset utilization, combined with SpaceIQ’s space management and workplace planning capabilities, customers will have all the data they need in one place to create a truly agile workplace.”
SpaceIQ and Tapdn will showcase their integrated technology at the upcoming IFMA World Workplace event, a facility conference and expo that takes place October 3-5 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Conference attendees can see the new platform in action at the CORT booth, # 907.
