Challenge

Given the fierce competition in hiring the right talent, EDGE Olympic needed to get creative to hire the best of the best. EDGE Technologies approached Mapiq to create a high-tech work environment for millennials. The building in Amsterdam had to become the blueprint for all new EDGE buildings coming up in London, Boston, New York, Berlin, and Hamburg.

Together with EDGE Technologies we created a high-tech work environment. Picture: Ossip van Duivenbode and Edge Technologies.

The Mapiq solution

Together with EDGE Technologies, we made sure that everyone in the EDGE building strongly feels supported in their daily office life. Everything in the smart office is designed to control the office with a smartphone, giving millennials the autonomy they need to create a frictionless workday. Mapiq’s smart office platform supports people at EDGE Olympic to:

  • Easily and quickly book workspaces in the building. This decreases the time employees spent looking for the perfect place to work.
  • Interact and find colleagues in the atrium to create a community feeling.
  • Get suggestions about where to go when a favorite room is not available. This boosts employee autonomy and help millennials with choosing.
Users of the EDGE Olympic can book any of the workplaces instantly through the Mapiq app.

“Employees don’t always feel pleasant working in established environments, when it comes to light or temperature. At EDGE Olympic people grab their phone, open the Mapiq app, and slide the lighting or temperature switch to their preference in seconds.”
