NEW YORK, NY and MELBOURNE, AUST, July 31, 2016 – Serraview, a global leader in workplace management software, shared client success stories in a Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® exclusive interview. Serraview’s co-founder and Chief Evangelist Ian Morley, explained the company’s innovative approach to corporate workplace management that is saving companies millions in property costs.
Serraview provides enterprise workplace management software that helps companies track actual space utilization and right-size their real estate portfolio based on peak demands and forecasts.
Suzanne Westgate of AGL Energy, one of Australia’s leading energy providers and a Serraview client, said:
“Serraview helps us to offer a workplace that can really enable people to produce what they need to through innovating and through technology. We can see what spaces are being effectively used, which spaces are underutilized. We can look at future projections and growth and use our space as efficiently as possible.”
Serraview’s workplace management software leverages big data and the Internet of Things to help companies make better strategic planning decisions about their property portfolios. Serraview partners with utilization technology developers such as Condeco and GE to integrate data from many sources and provide an accurate and real-time picture of space usage to help companies make better strategic planning decisions about their property portfolios and move towards the global trend of adopting agile working environments with the data from Serraview’s workplace management software. Agile working is a strategy that reduces corporate real estate spend while also facilitating a culture of collaboration, innovation and productivity improvements.
Ken Lynch of Australia and New Zealand Bank, a longtime user of Serraview’s workplace management software, said:
“We seek to keep ahead of business requirements and Serraview is on the same page. For example, in 2011 we implemented Activity-Based Working in our portfolio. We worked with Serraview to develop a tool that allows us to see dynamically how use of space changes in the building. Then we can then go back to business units and help consolidate and align space to improve product business outcomes.”
In the interview, Morley explained the potential for companies to save millions on their real estate portfolios by optimizing their use of office space.
“When you consider that property costs are usually the second or third largest expense for most businesses, straight after labor and technology costs,” said Morley, “shaving even a couple of percent off the cost of real estate can add considerable amounts to your bottom line.”
The segment, featuring AGL, ANZ, Cushman & Wakefield, Condeco, Current by GE and JLL, aired Sunday, July 31, 2016 on Fox Business Network as sponsored programming and Bloomberg International.
