1 KIOSK365 NJW's Resource Booking System

KIOSK365 and UTILIS365 are new modules, under deployment with Fidelity globally.

They integrate with Focal365 and initially TRIRIGA Reserve (other applications to follow) to provide “21st century” room & desk booking, with highly graphical meaningful analytics.

KIOSK365 Is a touch screen reservation system, designed for the lobby or entrance hall of prestigious buildings, it also can be used for desk, and colleague location.
It works in combination with the Outlook and Room / Desk reservation system.

Utilise365 Is a highly visual analytics module, driven from real-time occupancy room booking, “swipes” and telemetry.

2 Technology Options

It can be very confusing and expensive selecting the correct technology, procedure and resources to audit your property portfolio and often you will require a mixture of devices to measure different work types. You will need to hit the ground running to reap the rewards from your investment and have control of your drawings, assets and people, from concept to completion.

utilise_tech_optionsHand-held technologies

Using hand-held technologies a space utilisation study measures occupancy through time, providing management information by building, floor, department and activity. Detailed information is then sent to a central database in the cloud and presented through dashboard reporting.

Infrastructure systems

Data can be gathered from a number of workplace infrastructure systems including access control, telephone systems, motion detectors, thermal sensors and RFID.

Desk sensors

A unique wireless sensor that continually and accurately measures utilisation on an individual desk or meeting space. Small, discreet, easy to fix – this wireless device transmits utilisation data to a centralised database.

Room booking systems

Linking to room booking systems, UTILISE365 provides detailed reports on how your meeting rooms and resources are being used. This ongoing, accurate data enables you to improve usage levels of your meeting rooms and avoid unnecessary costs.

Utilisation Reporting

Using both industry knowledge and leading technology to inform the other, you will quickly recognise the potential to reduce your real estate costs and develop ongoing cost saving initiatives.

UTILISE365 provides a full Management Information Solution publishing ‘live’ dashboard analytics from the disparate occupancy databases.

3 Delivery Approach

utilise_slide_2utilise_slide_2b
utilise_slide_2aAt NJW we help organisations achieve the optimum working environment. To do this we follow three key steps:

Evaluate

Understanding how organisations work within their existing space, to do this we offer a number  of services to capture the ‘as is’ picture, including building surveys, asset, furniture and storage audits as well as analysing the existing space occupancy to identify opportunities.

Engage

Engaging with employees at all levels of the business is essential to the success of any workplace change. Our strategic consultants work with businesses to understand their requirements using a number of mechanisms including online workplace effectiveness surveys, accommodation reviews and workshops, industry benchmarking and guiding of best practice.

Evolve

Many employees are already taking advantage of some forms of flexible working, however, this largely consists of first (home), second (office) and third spaces (coffee-shop environments), whilst this way of working provides employees with a level of flexibility it is not conducive of the collaborative environment that many organisations wish to build upon. NJW have extensive experience in designing environments to incorporate the work settings to support these future ways of working.

4 Workplace Service Options

Evolution

New and evolving workplace strategies are gathering much momentum, driven by the rapid growth of new generations entering the workforce. These generations appreciate new technology and the freedom to work anywhere at anytime with a natural inclination to work with others (i.e. outside an individual workspace).

Alternative workplace strategies involve a bit of risk-taking by an organisation and a tolerance for change. At NJW we help organisations to create a work climate to attract, motivate and retain high performing employees. Our strategic approach will also facilitate the ability to make informed decisions on projected accommodation requirements that inevitably lead to huge cost savings.

Experience counts, it ensures smooth transition from concept to practical everyday use.

5 Using Hand-held Technologies

utilise_slide_4The journey, in auditing an existing facility, will begin with client reviews to understand strategy, challenges, timescales and budgets. With these goals firmly agreed we can design the data gathering and analysis required. Our technology allows immediate update of graphical representation of property and floor layouts by teams observing work as it happens.

NJW professional service teams work to a tried and tested project management delivery structure, using the best technology and ensuring client satisfaction through the visibility of online, dynamic web based analytics.

A space utilisation study measures occupancy through time providing management information for utilisation of workstations, informal and formal meeting spaces, catering and refreshment areas, breakout areas and conference facilities. NJW auditors are equipped and highly trained with the latest hand-held surveying and auditing technologies delivering instant analytics to our UTILISE365 solution.

The NJW audit process can be applied to any facility in any workplace. We regularly undertake audits in hospitals, education facilities, car parks and airports as well as the traditional office environment.

6 Infrastructure Systems

utilise_slide_5A combination of manual and technology systems are required if you want to automatically or periodically measure occupancy within your organisation, to identify under-utilised space, measure activities and unlock real-time information. Data can be gathered from a number of workplace infrastructure systems including security access databases, HR, finance, telephone monitoring, motion detectors, thermal sensors, RFID tags, desk sensors, people counters and integrated workplace management solutions.

A weather map of your data

NJW can integrate any or all of these elements together into an insightful composite set of dynamic web-based dashboards.

NJW have built genuine partnerships with the best of breed workplace technology companies and can provide a combination of periodic or permanent solutions.

It is important to note that technology provides a percentage of our UTILISE365 toolkit, but it is often ineffective without the workplace design skills described on page 9 of this brochure. Harnessing data and knowledge is only as effective as the action performed after the engagement and evaluation phases.

NJW consider all of the appropriate tools to suit your working environments and frequency of monitoring utilisation.
