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 about 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 find out about factors like technology, whiteboards and natural light levels.
