The goal of every developer and property manager is to understand and best meet the needs of tenants, which in turn is to translate into increased rental income.

The term "office tenant" covers not only the organization that pays the rent to the owner of the building, but also its employees. It turned out that changes in the labor market led to a situation where the location and standard of an office building may be a decisive factor in whether or not to work in a given company.

The modern worker (from Millennials or Generation Z) is a very picky creature. He is attracted by the start-up vision of the business environment - a modern office with separate rooms for individual and group work or meetings with clients, places for relaxation and exercise, libraries, etc. He expects a flexible style of work - at any time, anywhere in the office and the possibility performing some of the duties remotely. On the other hand, he would like his workspace to be best suited to individual needs.

It seems that the combination of such stringent and mutually exclusive requirements is impossible, but the first technologically advanced solutions to this issue have already appeared on the real estate market. An example is the modern skyscraper The Edge in Amsterdam, where tenants can use an integrated office space management system, which consists of central building management software and connected applications for employees' smartphones.

Using the application, an employee can remotely book a selected workplace, conference room or parking space. The application will remind you of an upcoming meeting, inform about the arrival of the guest, and then propose the optimal route to the selected room. In addition, it allows employees to track their progress in the company's gym and configure their favorite coffee in the buffet.

The software is able to select a workstation to the individual preferences of users and enables independent regulation of environmental conditions - lighting intensity as well as temperature and air humidity. In the future the application will be able to control a desk with an adjustable height, automatically adjusting it to the height of the employee. The sensor system will monitor the current position of the user on an ongoing basis and suggest its change at the right moment or even send the employee a short break to exercise.

The biggest advantage of integrated office space management systems is that they have been designed with benefits for both tenants and employees in mind. On the one hand, they care about the ergonomics of work (thanks to which it becomes less tiring and more efficient), and on the other hand, it helps to generate considerable savings in the company. In modern corporations, the turnover of employees during the day is so high that the traditionally understood desk assigned to only one person is a thing of the past. In other words, the company can install fewer workstations than it has employees, but then it must have the office space management system mentioned in the title.

Of course, integrated systems come at a price. Which does not mean that you should give up an ergonomic workplace. Height-adjustable desks don't have to be expensive. In the shop you can find a wide range of desks with various parameters and the full price range. An ergonomic workplace at a desk is a particularly important place for the health of a person working in a sitting position for 8 hours a day.
