How does the working place of tomorrow look like?

- The workplace of tomorrow will be focusing on the occupants of the building, using smart technologies to increase user experience, satisfaction, productivity and retention. Learning from the real usage of office space it becomes possible to predict needed actions and adapt servicing of the building or even anticipate and prevent dissatisfaction. As behavior changes the workplace concept can be adapted over time with cleaning and facility service adapting automatically activity based.

Who would you like to meet at WorkSpace Sweden?

- In our solutions we always start from real-life use cases in the market and at our customers, so learning the needs and experiences from others is key to even further develop our products. And obviously we love to share the projects and results we achieved at SpaceWell to a broader audience. 

Why do you chose to participate at WorkSpace Sweden?

- I saw a good fit with the event as it is our mission to bring solutions in the operation of buildings and the well-being of all their occupants. Technology is a key to assist organizations in addressing the challenges in today’s workplace. So we are always looking forward to exchange ideas and latest evolutions at events like WorkSpace Sweden.
