We are embracing change by integrating Disruptive sensors into FREM Group furniture, enabling and integrating smart capabilities at the furniture manufacturing source.
Sensors on meeting room doors, pod doors and seats (retrofitted if required for short-term analysis) monitor usage, and “hot” buttons built into pods can be pre-programmed to have food and beverage delivered or order support services. Users receive functional benefits and facilities managers get instant, valuable feedback.
Slim-line sensors with long battery life are inserted at the manufacturing stage; all furniture solutions can be pre-enabled for shipping. All that is required is an access point, provided by Disruptive, plugged into a local power supply to wirelessly enable furniture to monitor and broadcast valuable, accurate data from day one.
Data can be viewed in a web/app space optimisation solution, “Unityscape,” which receives real-time feeds from sensors, providing digital feedback and heat map information on how space is utilised, automatically adjusting and promoting availability of space for better efficiency and communication. This enables companies to analyse employee migration, qualify and quantify how interior space is utilized, and intelligently alter the working environment for cost efficiency and staff well-being. This is useful intelligence for organisations interested in improving efficiency of current space with a retrofit solution, and especially of interest as a permanent solution for those looking to relocate and refurbish premises based on ongoing reporting.
