Smarter building and working

Integrated solutions deliver building intelligence data in real-time to optimise space, reduce costs and drive efficiency

Workspaces are becoming more dynamic and responsive to the people connected to them
Workspaces are becoming more dynamic and responsive to the people connected to them

PointGrab, developer of the CogniPoint human-activity sensing platform, has announced a partnership with Mapiq, which creates connections between people and buildings to provide flexible workplaces.


By integrating CogniPoint with Mapiq’s space management and utilisation software the companies will deliver real-time building intelligence that allows organisations to work smarter and more efficiently.


By combining CogniPoint and Mapiq’s cloud-based software platform, enterprises can provide employees with the tools critical to improving performance and efficiency by real-time tracking and understanding how a space is being used.


By utilising advanced deep-learning neural networks technology, CogniPoint delivers the actionable data necessary to optimise space management, energy savings and business intelligence.


“As workers become more autonomous, it’s crucial for organizations to understand how and where employees are using flexible spaces so they can optimise usage and improve overall productivity,” said Itamar Roth, chief business officer, PointGrab.


“Integrating our CogniPoint sensing platform with Mapiq’s smart building software enables organization to implement a complete space utilisation solution based on real-time analytics.”


Mapiq’s smart building platform focuses on the flexibility of people rather than the building itself. The technology makes it easy for workers to share and find locations and colleagues fostering greater collaboration and the freedom desired by the modern worker.


Mapiq’s workplace management software also offers 3D mapping, way finding, room booking, events management and advanced analytics to help organization make informed business decisions.


“Dynamic work spaces are the driving factor of efficiency and productivity in most organisations and real-time building intelligence is at the core,” said Sander Schutte, CEO Mapiq.
