Turning Data into Results

The Measurable Workplace


The Measurable Workplace

Organizations understand that data can drive them forward, but often struggle to navigate the challenges that come from “big data.” Steelcase Workplace Advisor collects and analyzes information, providing organizations with meaningful insights about how their people work and how the workplace can help.

How it Works





Simple, Straightforward Installation

Workplace Advisor is carefully tailored to the layout of the workspace. Each individual floor plan is mapped out digitally, creating an interactive layout of the office. The plan of each office creates unique spatial and hardware needs, which is why Steelcase space engineers decide where and why each sensor and gateway are placed. Then the system’s map is created, giving the entire structure an efficient, simpler installation.

  • Each room in the system is assigned tagged boxes with all sensors and gateways inside.
  • Each room has its own mapped-out layout, clarifying where each piece of hardware goes.
  • Hardware installation takes only 5-10 minutes.




Accurate Data Results

Combining Steelcase’s spatial expertise with cutting-edge algorithms ensures that Workplace Advisor delivers precise, trustworthy data.

Steelcase’s industry-leading research and development has created hardware and software that deliver precise results—in real time. Through passive infrared technology, space usage is accurately measured and recorded via unobtrusive technology. Multiple sensors send collected data to multiple gateways, ensuring accurate information is both measured and is stored on Steelcase’s secure platform. Then the data is run through an algorithm to ensure the accuracy of the space’s real-time occupancy, as well as historical records of space usage. Workplace Advisor is carefully crafted to best serve each unique work environment and deliver valuable insights.




Capability for Any Scope

Organizations’ most valuable assets are people and places. Regardless of how large or small either of those assets are in number, Big Data can help ensure they’re performing as best as they can.

Workplace Advisor’s easy install, simple and unobstructive hardware, and cloud-enabled network allow for easy scalability. Workplace Advisor can expand to multiple campuses, all monitored via the dashboard, which can be accessed at any time, from anywhere, with the Device Monitor. Whether it’s in one or several enclosed meeting spaces, or across multiple buildings and campuses in different locations, Workplace Advisor can adapt accordingly to organizations’ needs.


Dashboard Demo

With the Workplace Advisor dashboard–timelines, charts and tables make it easy to see when spaces are being used, when they aren’t and for how long. Organizations can track the changes over different days and different rooms. Trends and patterns emerge, unique to each company. All of it is searchable. All of it can be sorted. All of it is available from anywhere, anytime on the dashboard.
