Office furniture manufacturer Steelcase is using Azure IoT to design solutions that improve the employee experience.
Last year it introduced the Workplace Advisor solution, built on the Microsoft Azure IoT platform, which collects and analyses anonymous data to provide organisations with insights into how people work and how their office is performing e.g. the amount of overused/ underutilised spaces.
It is now leveraging Azure IoT again, this time in its new Find app, which helps employees find and reserve spaces to meet or work. Users can enter specific space requirements, such as room capacity, and view the amenities available, such as technology, whiteboards and the availability of natural light.
