A connected workspace enables a better employee experience
Companies use many systems and tools to run their workplaces. By integrating these technologies, you can help employees work more efficiently whether from home or in the office. For example, integrations can solve issues that take their focus away from work.One thing that came up in our conversation was the hassle employees often experience when booking a meeting room. As Sewell shared, “People often say, 'Conference rooms are a total mess!' But by integrating your workplace platform with a tool like Density, you can monitor conference room capacity and gain additional insight into how often your rooms are used.”McGuinness said the ability to integrate tools has been vital during the pandemic. He explained that integrating with Envoy has enabled Openpath to, “expand beyond visitor management, which is still critically important, into self-attestation and dynamically turning on credentials for employees and visitors.”Integrated tech is even more important in a hybrid work landscape. You should evaluate your tech stack and invest in workplace tools that help employees work together efficiently no matter where they’re located. We talk more about this in the webinar.
Integrations are a win for companies, too
With the vaccine rollout in motion, more companies have started to think tangibly about returning to the workplace. How they should optimize their real estate investments and approach employee health and safety are just some of the topics that are top of mind.McGuiness said the support of technology makes him optimistic about going back to the office. “Advanced technologies are no longer a nice-to-have but something companies really need in order to operate and adjust [to changing needs] in real-time.”Sewall thinks investing in the right workplace technology is a win-win for employees and their companies. “A workplace that’s more adaptable, healthy, and flexible will ultimately drive a better employee experience and support the company’s bottom line.”—Interested in hearing more about what was discussed?
