The Rise of Mobile Devices in Creating Safe and Secure Commercial Real Estate Environments
HID Global, in conjunction with WORKTECH Academy, has compiled a comprehensive report about the the role of the office in the post-pandemic landscape of work and the types of experiences the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) leadership community is seeking to create.
The report explores the challenges and opportunities facing the European CRE (Commercial Real Estate) community in organizing a safe, secure and successful return to the office in the wake of the global pandemic. It is based on a study by WORKTECH Academy with workplace professionals in its network and draws on a range of comments and opinions from published sources, public webinars and a series of in-depth interviews.
The focus of the report is specifically on building access control and the infrastructure required for successful implementation and sets the context for the next phase of the smart office as mobile applications and access control technologies come to the fore. Four main mobile-related topics are addressed:
- The emergence of a mobile-first approach to the workplace
- How occupier patterns are changing as well as their impact
- Safety in returning to the office
- Support for the sustainability agenda
The report explores key challenges and ambitions within the CRE leaders community throughout Europe around access control and the trend towards a mobile-first approach. An app-centric workplace is all about convenience and amenity, removing friction or pain points, which is where CRE teams want to take the post-pandemic office — and where it is generally headed.
Access systems, centered around mobile devices, are considered an integral part of solutions to managing capacity and social distancing and allowing people to book and access space on demand in hybrid working environments. Users enjoy the benefits of self-determination and control, while CRE managers appreciate the transparency and ability for good governance.
