Looking for real-time space-utilization and asset usage data collected by sensors? Check out this new IoT platform

by Brianna Crandall — April 18, 2018 — CORT Business Services, a part of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and a nationwide provider of transition services, recently announced a partnership with Tango Mobile to launch Tapdn, a new highly secure, holistic IoT platform that harnesses data from sensors and integrates with disparate software systems to provide one dashboard of actionable insights for workplace optimization.

Using minimal footprint wireless sensors, Tapdn technology acquires and analyzes real-time data — including space utilization and asset usage — to interpret patterns of workplace operations for businesses. Tapdn then uses the results to provide custom solutions for businesses to understand current workplace needs, reduce complexities and make successful decisions for the future.

As workplace trends continue to evolve, many progressive enterprises are investing in technology resources that help them address how the agile workforce wants to work, points out CORT. Tapdn’s reporting capabilities are designed to help businesses better understand current individual and shared space utilization, while providing clear insights into opportunities to cut costs.

Greater results are achieved by integrating IoT with building operating systems and cross-departmental planning functions, further increasing productivity and positively impacting employee workplace experience. Customers can easily access these results in real time, any time, on any device through Tapdn’s intuitive Web-based portal, says CORT.

Jeff Pederson, president and chief executive officer at CORT, stated:

After discussions with our customers about their visions of success and evolving needs in the workplace, we found an overwhelming need for optimizing existing workspaces and improving client profitability. Our investment in Tapdn stems from our desire to develop new products and services that make sense for CORT and reinforce our mission of being an indispensable resource to our clients. Tapdn will provide our customers with real data about relevant, actionable ways to improve their workplace, which will ultimately attract and retain employees and maximize productivity along the way.

Tapdn is designed to seamlessly connect people and objects in any environment across a variety of industries, including commercial, industrial, and residential multifamily and single family real estate, retail, manufacturing, agriculture, hospitality, medical and higher education.
