It's no secret that managing your physical space and your overall lease portfolio are now more strategically intertwined than ever. Ongoing space optimization is part of day-to-day facilities management, and space utilization has a huge influence on lease portfolio decisions. As employers have accepted the need to provide flexible hybrid work environments, some have empowered their employees with self-service workplace management tools that provide touchless sign-in/sign-out, desk booking, and room reservation capabilities. But technology can go far beyond enabling operational tasks – the data collected from workplace management systems can inform decisions around space usage as well as strategic lease portfolio management.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand how interconnected technologies can provide insights and drive strategy around workplace, real estate, and operations management.

  • Identify key data points that influence decisions for space utilization and employee productivity.

  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your current systems and determine the steps required to improve data visibility.
