Demand for greater flexibility means that the way employers and employees operate are changing, and will continue to change all the time. Understanding these shifts through detailed data and insights can help businesses identify pain points, react to changes in workspace demand, and right-size real estate to meet business needs.
Predictive analytics can equip businesses with a new level of information, including:
The ways in which workspaces and meeting rooms are used.
How employees work and behave.
A deeper understanding of how the business operates.
More flexible working means demand on office space is fundamentally changing. Organizations may want to cut back on their real estate, but need to do so in a way that ensures they can match demand.
Condeco technology enables the use of enriched data with integration into Microsoft PowerBI for in-depth office space needs analytics. Through this, businesses can understand what the true demand on their office space is and calculate office space needed accordingly, therefore aligning real-estate needs with costs.
Workplaces must be highly reactive and responsive to fast-changing business and workforce needs – those that don’t will struggle to keep pace with competitors. Understanding what space is popular and how it is used will be key to ensuring you can repurpose space to meet new employee demand.
Condeco’s technology helps you understand work patterns and styles, delivering clear predictability of workspace usage. These insights can be extremely valuable in adapting both workspace layouts and employment arrangements to suit the future of your business.
Organizations will have to make important decisions regarding the planning of workspaces and real-estate for the future of work and ensure they build agile environments to flex as employee demand changes.
Data analytics have a key role to play in establishing a clear picture of how workplaces operate, how employees use them, and which arrangements are more successful than others. This allows data-driven design and planning decisions to be made on reliable data insights.

Here are some of our frequently asked questions surrounding flexible working systems.
Despite the rise in popularity in remote working, many businesses will find it valuable to retain a physical office environment. This can help support collaboration and socialization between co-workers, provide a space for clients to meet, and allow remote workers to book a space in a quiet office environment as and when required.
Predictive analytics can be used in conjunction with workspace booking and management software in order to establish a true picture of how workspaces are used. If workspaces are under or over-utilized, or employee demands aren’t being met, the data derived can quantify the scale of the issues so that the right decisions can be made in response.
