The way people work has changed a lot, and so has the workplace. Deloitte is one of the first companies to respond to this trend, by creating a high-tech and self-sufficient office building that enhances activity-based working. The Edge is equipped with multiple meeting rooms, open workspaces, and short-stay desks to support a mobile workforce.
Twice as many employees as the available workplaces work here. For that reason, first, it was necessary to give employees the possibility to easily book a meeting room, check room availability, and have access to occupancy insights. The next challenge was to create a workplace equipped with cutting-edge technology that allowed Deloitte to attract and retain talent.
In order to realize their ambitions, they brought together a team of industry experts and start-ups, including Mapiq, and challenged us all to develop the best office building in the world. In doing so, Deloitte became our pilot customer.
The Mapiq solution
Together with inspiring partners such as Edge Technologies, Signify, Avex, Axxerion, and Vecos, we, at Mapiq, started a collaborative research and discovered that in order to support an activity-based environment, all available data needed to be collected in a single central platform. Therefore, we implemented Mapiq and connected it to all other building systems, 23.000 sensors, and iBeacons.
This inter-connected system served two main purposes. First, it served as an input source for the Mapiq platform including its interactive 3D map, and second, it enables users to have access to a complete digital office overview.
Employees can navigate, find available workplaces and colleagues easily. The Mapiq-integrated Deloitte’s room booking system, makes it possible to book meeting rooms and conversation spaces. Also, we integrated AV and smart locker solutions, which allows employees to control these features with the Mapiq app on their smartphone.
