A lack of real-time information has always made optimisation difficult, and modern working practices – including hot desking, virtual meetings, off-site working, mobile connections, flexible teams and fluid project methodologies – are only adding to the challenge.
DeskQUERY™ has been specifically designed to meet those challenges, being suitable for use in both traditional fixed desk and hot-desking office environments and with the ability to provide information on virtual, remote and home based users.
The result is a unique desk utilisation and space analysis solution which helps the manager to optimise use of existing work areas, floors or buildings; plan future estate requirements; or analyse desk utilization by department for optimised usage and accurate cost allocation.
By accurately monitoring real time desk utilization across hours, days, weeks, months and even years, DeskQUERY™ can easily identify under or over utilised work areas, floors or buildings.
By delivering the data through easy-to-interpret graphical interfaces and bespoke reports, the software quickly and simply opens the door to significant real estate savings, allowing clients to make informed decisions across national or global estates.
A powerful moves module can help organisations identify and implement recommendations for change, with features including drag-and-drop move planning, floor plans with real-time names to desks, graphical displays by department, team or cost centre, and automatically generated move plans.
Features to help workspace users to optimise and manage their own use of the workspace for improved operational efficiency, including real-time hot desk and meeting room booking, support for desk ‘hoteling’, and a people-finding function that accurately locates individuals across the flexible workspace.
A powerful front-end interface and improved iOS integration for an improved desk-to-mobile user experience.
