See how integrating sensor technology with space planning software can help optimize your space

by Brianna Crandall — January 21, 2019 — SpaceIQ, a workplace operating platform that enables customers to make smart, data-driven facility and workplace management decisions, has partnered with Tapdn, an Internet of Things (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 touted as the only product of its kind on the market.

Tapdn, launched earlier this year by transition services provider CORT Business Services (a Berkshire Hathaway company) in partnership with Tango Mobile, 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 facilities management (FM) professionals through Tapdn’s web-based portal.

Allison Ballard, executive director at Tapdn, remarked:

We’re excited about partnering with SpaceIQ to deliver the industry’s best space planning capabilities to our customers. 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’s cloud-based, machine learning-empowered platform enables smart planning and scenario modeling to help facility and corporate real estate (CRE) managers transform their workplaces from a cost center to a competitive advantage.

By adding SpaceIQ’s widely used 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.

Jeff Revoy, co-founder and chief operating officer at SpaceIQ, stated:

This is a mutually beneficial partnership that will deliver unprecedented insights to customers. 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.
