ActivityAnalysis by FacilityQuest is a space management solution that allows users to properly utilize their workplaces. Prior to making important planning decisions for workplace optimization, a FacilityQuest space utilization study shows “how many people are doing what types of activities” in each space type.
Utilization analysis helps maximize real estate investments and optimize the workplace for employee productivity. Utilization data can help change management by showing that space will deliver more value when put to a different use.
FacilityQuest studies use observers to gather data that provides insights not obtainable with self-reporting surveys, sensors, or other data gathering methods. On-site survey teams use hand-held devices preloaded with routes, observation stops, and data collection options for each stop. Survey data automatically uploads to cloud-based database.
Plan for the next lease. An increasingly mobile workforce is now leaving 60% or more of the workplace underutilized. Gather occupancy data before negotiating a lease to know what is needed.
Accommodate a growing headcount. Utilization studies help identify space challenges and opportunities and demonstrate how employees engage with the workplace. Identify different space needs by business unit, department, or team. New strategies for workplace design can accommodate higher headcount, and thus buy some time before more space is needed.
