Introducing Workspace types

New feature for Condeco – Workspace types

Attributes

All Workspace types can have their own set of attributes so your users can refine searches to find a quiet desk with dual monitors and a high table, or a collaboration space with MS Teams equipment, or parking space with an electric charger, for example.

    Updated UI and improvements to accessibility

    Booking a desk

    We’ve simplified the desk booking journey for web users. When a user searches for a desk all available desks are displayed on the floor plan. This journey mirrors the experience of the mobile desk booking app creates familiarity across all of our interfaces.

    Desk status on the floor plan and booking grid

    Users and administrators can easily see which desks are closed or awaiting cleaning, on the floor plan and the desk booking grid.

    Jun 29 2020

    Working status and booking allowances

    Booking allowances

    Set monthly or weekly booking allowances to give employees the freedom to decide which days they would like to be in the office, whilst your organization can ensure the office isn’t exceeding safe levels of occupancy.

    Team assignments

    Team Assignment allows you to quickly divide groups of users into two teams and separate booking schedules across odd and even week numbers. This helps organizations protect critical functions by ensuring not all members of a department are in physical contact with each other.

    User availability

    A user can set working status in advance from their profile on the web or from the mobile app. A user can switch between “working remotely” and “not working”, or mark themselves as “in the office” by booking a desk.

    Mandatory remote-working days

    An administrator can assign a user to “work remotely” on specific dates. When mandated remote-working has been applied, a user is not able to book a desk for that day.

    Find a colleague

    Users can search for a colleague and check their working status, enabling them to book desks near each other when they need to collaborate in the office.

    Jun 29 2020

    Vendors and the cleaning workflow

    To help organizations ensure that an employee’s working environment is kept clean and safe, we’ve added a desk cleaning workflow to our Vendor module. Vendors can identify the desks that require cleaning through a change of use, or from a release, helping to reduce the load on cleaning teams.

    Desk cleaning workflow

    When a desk is booked, cleaning is scheduled for the last day of the booking. In the event of a desk booking being released, deleted or bumped, the desk is scheduled for immediate cleaning so it can be made available for another booking.

    Desks cannot be booked whilst there is an outstanding cleaning task and if a cleaning task is not completed by a set time, the next booking is canceled and the user informed by email.

    Vendor workflow and dashboard

    The vendor workflow makes sure that a task for deep cleaning is automatically assigned to the designated vendor contact when a desk occupant is going to change.

    The vendor monitor a color-coded dashboard to view and manage tasks.

    Jun 29 2020

    Resource and location administration

    To help maintain a safe distance in the office, some desks may need to be closed and some meeting rooms may need to have their capacity reduced or closed for a period. We’ve added new features to make these tasks easy to manage.

    Closing rooms and desks

    Rooms and desks can be closed individually or when closing a zone, floor or entire location. All bookings during the closure period are canceled and users informed by email.

    Closed rooms and desks cannot be booked by any user or administrator and will show as ‘closed’ on floor plans and bookings grids.

    Zones

    Zones are a collection of desks and rooms which occupy a defined space on a floor. They can span across Groups and are useful for administrators to quickly close or open a spaces.

    Reduce room capacity

    Reduce the capacity of your meeting rooms either individually or multiple rooms in a single action. An administrator can apply a rule reducing capacity by half (or to 1 if it is 4 or lower) or apply a custom reduction value. When reducing the capacity of rooms, the administrator can choose whether to delete all existing bookings which are now over-capacity for the room. Administrators are able to easily revert back to the previous default setup and capacity of the room, as well as all other secondary seating options that were available before the reduction was applied.

    Jun 29 2020

    Proximity-based check-in and self certification

    Automatic location-based check-in

    Add longtitude and latitude values for a location and a user is automatically checked in to their desk once they are within 100 metres of the building. Location services must be enabled on a compatible Android or iPhone.

    Self-certification

    A self-certification message can be customized for each location and shown to users on the desk booking mobile app each day they have a desk booking. Users who self-certify are giving a green banner that can be presented to the front of house teams. Users who cannot agree with the statements are mandated to work remotely.

    Reporting is available for current and historical self-certification status.

    Jun 29 2020

    Contact tracing

    Contact tracing report

    Run a contract tracing report to find rooms, desks, colleagues and visitors a user may have had contact with over the last 14 days. Alert internal contacts on their Today page, and assign mandatory remote-working days.

    The report includes:

    Desks – the desks booked for the employee.
    Adjacent colleagues – employees who sat in the same zone or at an adjacent desk.
    Rooms – rooms the employee booked, hosted, requested or attended meetings in
    Attendees – other attendees of meetings attended by the employee (excluding attendees who were working remotely).
    Other visitors – external visitors to the employee.
    Screens – Condeco screens where the employee used their PIN or RFID card.

    Jun 29 2020

    Return to Office features launched

    Our Return to Office solution enables organizations to control capacity and occupancy of offices, manage work locations for employees, ensure desks are always cleaned prior to new occupancy and provides contact tracing of employees.

    Control workplace capacity

    Condeco allows easy closure of desks and clearly shows on floor plans which spaces are closed at the point of booking.

    Control occupancy

    Limit the number of employees coming into the office on the same days by setting booking allowances, configuring teams and mandate remote working if needed.

    Give users choice and flexibility

    Give employees a choice where to work whilst maintaining control over your office’s occupancy. Employees can book desks via the web or the mobile app and see where colleagues are working on specific days, enabling easy collaboration when required.

    Effective workspace cleaning

    The cleaning workflow ensures that every desk is properly cleaned ready for new occupants and saves on deep cleaning by giving the option to only schedule full cleaning at the end of a continuous booking period by the same occupant.

    Contact tracing

    Because Condeco has workspace booking for every employee, it can easily track who was working near someone in the building by offering a contact tracing report enabling you to automatically mandate remote working for employees who worked near someone that reported sick.
