Tieto Corp. Beacon Solution Brings Intelligence to Offices
The system, provided by Quuppa, has helped the company to increase sales and productivity, understand how its workspace is being used and automatically enable the utilization of rooms.
Feb 02, 2018—
Finnish IT solutions company Tieto Corp. is marketing a solution for intelligent buildings that it has deployed at its own facilities, based on Quuppa's technology. Since installing the solution at its own headquarters in Helsinki, the company has been able to improve workers' health while increasing productivity and sales.
The building-intelligence system allows companies to know where their employees or visitors circulate, how facilities are being used, and how to better manage a building or campus and the operations within it. Approximately 10 firms are currently using or testing the solution, including construction company Skanska, the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare and transport agency Metropolia.
MyOffice consists of Tieto's cloud-based software, mobile applications, Quuppa locators, tags to transmit data to those locators, and infrared sensors to detect the presence of individuals at desks or other specific locations. The goal, the company reports, is to enable a business to understand how its space is being used, both in real time and historically. In this way, employees can determine where their colleagues are located at any given time, which meeting rooms are occupied and which areas might require maintenance. Managers can understand more about how a space is being used and how it can be made more efficient.
The company started the MyOffice installations at home. It purchased its Helsinki facility last year, at a site previously occupied by Nokia, and installed the MyOffice system to help track the movements of individuals around the building. The overall goal, Teikko explains, "was to help people work in more flexible and modern ways to support ad hoc work."
For the installation, the company deployed 500 Quuppa locators around the building that allow the firm to identify the location of an individual to within a few meters. Employees and visitors all use LD6T tags, while some Quuppa asset tags have been attached to employees' bikes and other items. Eighty percent of the staff wear badges (the use of which is voluntary), totaling approximately 1,600 workers.
Quuppa's LD6L locators, installed in ceilings, provide coverage around office areas. The company's LD7L locators, designed for outdoor use or installation in rooms with ceiling heights greater than 12 meters (39.4 feet), can be mounted laterally on walls in areas such as Teito's large atrium.
