The alliance between Accruent and MapsPeople will allow corporations, universities, and other organizations to reduce the complexity of navigating large facilities and improve the productivity of employees and increase convenience for visitors.
According to studies, 40% of employees waste up to 60 minutes every week searching for colleagues, available desks, or conference rooms. Based on those numbers, a company with 1000 employees could be wasting in excess of 20,000 employee hours each year. As more organizations adopt agile workspaces, the reduced consistency of daily experiences could lead to even more wasted time if organizations do not provide their employees, visitors, and students the tools needed to locate people and places across their campus. To help companies, organizations, and schools to reduce time spent searching for meeting rooms, people, and workspaces, MapsPeople and Accruent have agreed to facilitate integration of Accruent’s EMS resource and room scheduling application and MapsPeople’s MapsIndoors navigation application.
Using the combination of EMS and MapsIndoors, users can:
– Schedule meetings and workspaces from their own device or scheduling kiosks and
get immediate access to indoor navigation information
– Get a real-time overview of an entire office space or campus with the tap of a finger
– Integrate MapsIndoors and EMS with a variety of sensors to check if booked meeting rooms
are occupied or left unused and provide the foundation for analytics to measure space usage.
