Workplace and occupancy management artificial intelligence (AI) software provider, GoSpace AI, has partnered with global real estate services firm, JLL, to transform how occupancy is supported in the post-pandemic, hybrid workplace.
According to both firms, combining GoSpace’s Artificially Intelligent Dynamic Resource Allocation engine (AIDRA) with JLL’s innovative technologies and industry-leading workplace solutions, “creates a dynamic occupancy planning and management offering featuring the first ‘always on’ space optimisation capability in the industry”.
This offering is part of JLL’s end-to-end product suite that enables agile, experience-centric workplace planning and management.
JLL’s innovative micro supply demand methodology leverages AIDRA to expand and contract office and footprint needs on a real-time basis, with an integrated view on the demand for space. The combination of several JLL technologies with AIDRA will activate dynamic zones, rather than static space assignments, an approach which grows or shrinks based on the ever-changing number of occupants coming into the physical workplace.
Once fully implemented, for single locations or an entire portfolio, the solution will integrate a dynamic employee-facing reservation management capability that will help them request space assignments that can vary daily. This enables employees to collaborate effortlessly with colleagues and allows occupancy planners to manage the number of people in an area. It will also capture accurate utilisation data in a non-capital-intensive manner to identify space optimisation, maintenance and energy cost saving opportunities.
The program will be executed through three key, digital components: utilising AI-harvested data; running daily simulations to manage dynamic zones; and presenting smart space reservations autonomously.
“The output of AIDRA, coupled with JLL’s current occupancy platform, will be a highly optimised space driven by the confluence of efficiency and effectiveness,” said Daniel Kirschner, JLL’s Global Lead for Portfolio Products. “This integration sets up the framework to enable our clients to migrate from static location management to a next-generation, ‘always-on’ portfolio solution, enabling smarter real estate decision-making,” he added.
Bruce Davison, CEO of GoSpace AI said: “We’re excited to have JLL as our primary sales and delivery partner for medium and large enterprises, combining GoSpace AI capabilities with JLL’s industry-leading occupancy planning and management solutions, to tackle the challenges occupancy planners face in today’s continuously shifting environment.”
