Waterschap Zuiderzeeland uses zone sensors to discover real-time space occupancy data to improve utilization
BOSTON, Feb. 8, 2018 /CNW/ - Planon, the global leader in software solutions for real estate and facility management optimization, announced today that Waterschap Zuiderzeeland, a Dutch water utility organization, has achieved better occupancy of their meeting space and an improved room-booking process after completing a pilot of the Planon IoT platform.
Waterschap Zuiderzeeland installed zone sensors in its headquarters as part of a renovation project. All bookable meeting rooms are now equipped with a Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor, which communicates the current status of the space - either occupied or free - in real-time with the Planon software.
"Using this technology has let us monitor space availability better. If a workspace is not used at a time when it has actually been booked, it is released automatically, giving staff much easier access to meeting rooms," said Janneke Eerens, Environmental Manager with Waterschap Zuiderzeeland.
The IoT platform is just one element of Planon's Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS). This software supports efficiency improvements and cost reductions in operational processes, as well as continuous innovation to increase workplace productivity and employee satisfaction.
In addition to improving meeting room occupancy, there are many other IoT use-cases to explore. Sign up for Planon's webinar to learn more, or read the full Waterschap Zuiderzeeland case study on the Planon website.
