Is office hoteling right for your people? Can that large conference room be modified – perhaps turned into two rooms – for an optimal layout? Make informed decisions based on deep data, not casual observations.
Lower real estate costs
Wasted real estate costs your bottom line. With EMS technology, utilization reporting can help you understand your room, building and workspace utilization, enabling you make the best possible use of your real estate footprint.
Discover new campus space
On campus, departmentally owned space is notoriously underutilized. With centralized scheduling from EMS, higher ed administrators can generate space utilization reports that reveal opportunities and options for new scheduling blocks.
