Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Pharmaceutical company Roche has transformed an area in one of its German offices into a smart workplace by implementing the Interact Office Space management application from Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting. The pilot office space at Roche in Grenzach-Wyhlen, Germany was equipped with Philips LED connected lighting and IoT sensors, using Signify’s Interact Office software and insights to increase building efficiency and optimize space.
Recent studies indicate that 25-50% of office desks1 in buildings are vacant on any given day. Interact Offices’ Space management helps to understand occupancy rates across buildings, floors, meeting rooms or even at desk-level by counting people and analyzing the number of workers in a given space. Through accurate reporting on historic and real-time space usage, Corporate Real Estate professionals can assess and optimize space requirements and workplace designs easily.
Roche chose to implement Signify’s Space management application to get a better understanding of their building.
