Open Concept Offices Are Out, Smart Offices Are In
OTTAWA, ONTARIO: Relogix this week revealed they have officially deployed over 100,000 sensors covering over 20 million square feet of workspace globally. The insights the Relogix Workspace Analytics Platform has captured already have huge financial repercussions for real estate and office-based businesses and are shifting the way organizations look at their workspace and real estate.
“In October we announced $4 million in funding and that allowed us to deploy quickly for some key clients,” Andrew Millar, Founder and CEO of Relogix explains, “the early data coming back from those installations make for impactful case studies and show real results. It prompted us to refresh and refocused the brand and set out a more aggressive growth plan.”
The data has been staggering, in one case study, from a large-scale but traditional office-setting style client, Relogix found a 52% vacancy rate for all workspaces during prime work hours, and of the team members present only a 25% occupancy rate for their dedicated desk spaces. This information can save hundreds of thousands of dollars per year by informing companies if they can – and which spaces to – repurpose, instead of acquiring new space for expansion and growth.

Additionally, the findings suggest that almost every organization has the wrong amount and wrong sized meeting rooms, almost every organization has a significant amount of space not being used effectively, and almost every organization has employees that are negatively affected by the current provisioning of the workspace. (This includes the formerly popular “open concept” offices.) Relogix now has the data that proves they can identify and provide a solution for all of these issues.
Commercial Real Estate (CRE) professionals, medium to large organizations and quickly growing companies are all learning observation and opinion are no longer good enough when you can make workspace investment decisions based on data.
Relogix celebrates the astounding milestones of 100,000 sensors install across over 20 million square feet with the launch of a refreshed website and brand. The new site focuses on how workspace transformation can increase office-based business efficiencies, increase productivity and save companies money. Commercial Real Estate (CRE) professionals, medium to large organizations and quickly growing companies are all learning observation and opinion are no longer good enough when you can make your workspace investment decisions based on data.
The insights currently produced by the Relogix Workspace Analytics Platform are all generated from data derived from their Sensor as a Service IoT technology. Millar adds, “The technology is evolving and Relogix is evolving with it,” hinting that more announcements are coming, that the new website (Relogix.com), new case studies, and a new focus on “CRE solutions built by CRE professionals,” are all only the beginning.
