Smarten Spaces was recently named an IDC Innovator in the IDC Innovators: Mobile Enterprise Asset Management, 2021, (doc #US47985021, November 2021) report.
Smarten Spaces has been working with companies in over 30 countries, including many of the leading Fortune 500 companies, as they make the shift to the hybrid workplace. With the rising expectations of employees to work in a hybrid manner, it is becoming increasingly important for organizations to embrace this change and convert their workplaces into engaging, flexible places where employees enjoy a frictionless experience and get to work in a collaborative manner with their teams. A key part of this shift is to provide the right technology tools to the employees, the management, and the operations teams to plan their workdays better at home or in the office.
Today, organizations seek more functionality on intuitive, configurable mobile platforms without costly customizations, and emerging vendors are answering the call via innovative offerings.
“Enterprise asset[s], maintenance, and facility management face increasing complexity, pressure to improve performance, and changing regulatory requirements,” says Juliana Beauvais, research manager at IDC, about the thinking behind this year’s Innovators List. “Today, organizations seek more functionality on intuitive, configurable mobile platforms without costly customizations, and emerging vendors are answering the call via innovative offerings.”
Smarten Spaces was named an IDC Innovator in part because of the Jumpree 3.5 platform. Jumpree 3.5 automates and streamlines hybrid workplace management.
The platform differentiates in the market by integrating partner technologies and connecting data to its AI engine to produce analytics, insights, and recommendations. The applications help manage day-to-day tasks and long-term decision-making to address shifting workplace needs in a new era.
A hybrid workplace is defined as one which sees employees dividing their time between a centralized office space and remote work.
Doing so can actually improve productivity and employee quality of life while saving time and money in the process. But it can also mean a lot of administrative work and efficacy challenges. In order to take advantage of a hybrid workplace, employee work schedules need optimizing, lines of communication need clarity, and employees need empowerment to do their jobs effectively.
Jumpree delivers an all-in-one solution to these challenges. The complete day in the life of an employee can be managed by the solution from planning which days they want to work remote versus back in the office, matching schedules with team members to have a more productive day, to desks being allocated using an AI-based solution, to help provide the best collaboration spaces for team meetings, and any such services and amenities needed in the workplace or at home. The organization gets a strategic view of the overall needs of the employees and can plan the spaces better–reducing fixed spaces in many cases and providing flexible options. To enhance the overall experience, the all-in-one app, Jumpree, and the management dashboard also integrate with most industry calendaring systems, collaborations tools, and other IoT devices like sensors and smart locks.
The shift to a hybrid workplace–and the energy and resources it requires–may seem like a lot, especially for companies accustomed to performing day-to-day operations a particular way.
Smarten Spaces’ status as an IDC Innovator is based in large part on its ability to make that transition as easy as possible, and ensure that companies can maximize the benefits of the hybrid workplace. Organizations looking for a tool to implement or formalize a hybrid workplace environment to manage employee experience and save space will find Jumpree 3.5 an invaluable asset.
“Being an innovator means always being ready for change and then effectively managing it when it happens.”
As Smarten Spaces CEO and founder, Dinesh Malkani, recently said in an article for Forbes, “Being an innovator means always being ready for change and then effectively managing it when it happens. The hybrid, work-from-anywhere workforce is here for the foreseeable future, and employees want employers to adapt and evolve quickly and intelligently. How you leverage this shift to a hybrid work model will be a defining moment for your business.”
Those who can transition to a hybrid work model and thrive will have a big advantage over their competition. Those who struggle, on the other hand, may find themselves left behind. Smarten Spaces‘ Jumpree 3.5 is just the tool to help businesses make the leap. Several Fortune 500 companies across the globe have adopted this technology to transition to a hybrid workplace.
