Strukton PULSE has been expanded to include a completely new Workplace Utilisation dashboard.

Captivating and retaining employees in an attractive working environment is becoming increasingly more important in a tight job market. Sometimes, this is directly opposed to the efficient use of a building. Often there is a desire to make accommodations as compact as possible, as well as flexibly deployable. Measuring the use of a building creates insight into how various spaces are in fact used and into the users' real needs. Strukton PULSE has been expanded to include a completely new Workplace Utilisation dashboard. This makes it possible to implement focused optimisations so that employees can experience a comfortable, healthy and safe working environment.

With Strukton PULSE, Strukton Worksphere increasingly provides more digital services. Patrick van Geffen, Programme Manager PULSE: ‘We are constantly further developing PULSE Analytics with our own development team. In addition to, for example, Predictive Maintenance and Energy Monitoring, the Comfort module has been supplemented with a completely new dashboard.’

Occupation and utilisation
We make use of floor plans to provide direct insight into the measured values. How the data is supplied is not important; it can be supplied by individual sensors, a permanent set-up, by means of a building management system (BMS), or a combination thereof. In the background, PULSE processes the available data into useful information. By combining a floor plan with a table with smart filtering options, various analyses can quickly be produced. The colour schemes provide direct insight into how intensively an area is used. In this respect, we make a distinction between occupation and utilisation during the building's hours of use. Occupation indicates whether a space is used, while utilisation indicates the percentage of the maximum capacity used during the selected period.

Making adjustments based on needs
Information about occupation and utilisation provides building owners and facility managers with objective insight into the use of a building. This makes it possible to better manage costs, while at the same time increasing employee productivity. Furthermore, the information provides additional insights that can be directly translated into, for example, adjustments to the building. Things that come to mind here include fewer or more small meeting rooms, more quiet working areas or increasing the flexibility of the available workspaces. This also makes it possible to, for example, manage the facility services or the parties responsible for maintenance, in smarter ways.
