IoT for Space Utilization

The future of Space Management lies in the use of occupancy sensors to measure real-time space use. The use of sensors is already compatible with ARCHIBUS and many clients have begun experimenting with sensors to track their space usage. Now, ARCHIBUS is taking bold new steps to lead the transition into sensor-based systems.

At Nexus 2016, ARCHIBUS ran a proof of concept experiment by installing occupancy sensors in session rooms. Having proved that sensors can be used to track real-time occupancy, ARCHIBUS is initiating a series of pilot projects.

To get involved in the pilot projects, contact us at

Why should you get involved?

AWS (ARCHIBUS Web Services) and Team Space provide opportunities to improve space usage and lower occupancy costs, while simultaneously increasing productivity by promoting team collaboration. But measuring actual utilization becomes paramount in order to truly maximize space efficiency. This utilization data allows space planners to answer questions like “what is the right employee-to-seat ratio for team spaces” and “what size and number of meeting rooms do we need?”

While self-reporting can provide valuable data, the most accurate and efficient tracking systems implement sensors. By using occupancy sensors to measure and report real-time space occupancy, organizations can eliminate costly manual workstation use checks and identify opportunities to repurpose under-utilized space.

Join the Conference that Connects the Dots...So You Can Realize the Possibilities Using ARCHIBUS.

Real estate, infrastructure and facilities management is much easier when you look at how each system interacts and solve problems holistically rather than tackling challenges separately.

From distinct operational realities to an integrated strategic picture of real estate, infrastructure and facilities, the ability to "connect the dots" is paramount.

It enables you and your organization to realize the strategic value of your properties and assets by associating one task with another, one process with another, one mission with another — and discovering the "big picture" in massively complex and heterogeneous clusters of data.

That's why, at ARCHIBUS Nexus 2017, we invite you to connect and realize the possibilities with us!

Join us in National Harbor, Maryland, this coming April when Nexus 2017 convenes for four days of operations-enhancing, career-advancing presentations that will deliver a substantial ROI on your conference registration.

We have a distinguished roster of presenters delivering innovative management sessions that will transform your operations, as well as many technical sessions by ARCHIBUS staff, so you can optimize your investment in ARCHIBUS.

From business presentations, to technical educational and training sessions, and product expos, through network events and more, ARCHIBUS Nexus 2017 is the place to be.
