In the second phase of the rollout, further capability from Comfy’s feature set can be added to enhance the Siemens workplace experience. Employees will be able to reserve specific rooms and desks, navigate offices and campuses with maps, locate coworkers and personalize the temperature and lighting levels to ensure comfort. Additionally, there will be the option to deploy a network of IoT sensors from Siemens-owned Enlighted Inc. When integrated with Comfy, this enables employees to view the occupancy of desks, rooms and offices in real time.
Siemens Real Estate, which is responsible for real estate activities within the company, is overseeing rolling out the solution across all global locations. Commenting on this development, Zsolt Sluitner, CEO of Siemens Real Estate, said: “We are proud that Siemens is the first blue chip company which starts to digitize its workplace environment on a global scale by using its own technology.”
The Comfy workplace app aims to enhance the collaboration with Enlighted, both at customers’ and Siemens’ premises. Employees expect more flexibility to successfully manage and balance their professional and private lives while making use of agile workplaces that foster creativity and innovation.
Comfy’s employee-facing app enables businesses to keep their people informed and productive while providing a workspace that is safe and compliant with local regulations.
