We asked Peter Fehlmann from Ernst & Young about his experiences with Locatee. This is what he answered:
“Locatee Analytics provides objective data on the utilisation of different departments, zones, floors and buildings. These data highly enable FM managers to take objective decisions with a long-term impact, such as to guide through discussions with line managers on their space requirements as the FM manager can lead the discussion and take data-driven decisions based on the trustworthy data: define the peak utilisation and the right number of required workplaces, accordingly.
Furthermore, Locatee Analytics allows us to optimise our portfolio planning and space efficiency, which results in a high ROI. For example, as EY is continuously measuring the occupancy across different office buildings, we are able to plan the new office building in Geneva according to the actual utilization and the identified space needs of the employees to increase their productivity and happiness, as well as to optimise the footprint.”
