In a hybrid environment, locating colleagues and meeting spaces is a unique challenge, yet collaboration and culture are still the backbone of many companies. To foster innovation and collaboration, employees must be able to find each other to work together.
With Wisp, everyone in an organization can benefit from wayfinding to easily locate people, spaces, or conference rooms from their device of choice.
As we look to the future, we see that being in-person with other people is among the top reasons to come into the office. Through our surveys we found that “working in-person with my team/colleagues” was universally ranked as the #1 reason in all six countries we studied, while socializing with colleagues, being part of the community, or impromptu face-to-face connections also ranked high. In particular, respondents reported that the office excels at supporting collaboration, awareness, problem solving, and inclusive communication.
How our Wayfinding feature works:
Wisp combines directory and seat assignment data on a floor plan. Using your device of choice, simply search for the name of the person or space you are looking for and it will be identified on the floor plan map. You may also directly explore the floor plan to visually identify the location of a person or space.
Use a mobile device, tablet, or desktop to locate spaces or colleagues on a floor plan map from anywhere.
No application installation required.
Connect Wayfinding to your intranet for a seamless experience.
Enable every type of workplace where collaboration, focus, and innovation are valued.
Publish icons of life safety equipment, evacuation routes and more on a floor plan.
Whether planning for the unexpected or simplifying everyday tasks, adding icons to a floor plan can increase efficiency, safety and communication with staff. We've identified eight ways that adding icons to a floor plan can benefit everyone in an organization:
According to our U.S. Workplace Survey 2021 research, workers at top-performing companies prefer the office for a much wider range of activities than workers at unranked companies, including deep concentration, ideation, and creative tasks. Top-performing companies’ employees are nearly twice as likely to prefer the office for individual thinking/ideation. They also prioritize in-person work over virtual work, in particular for giving and receiving in-person feedback. For individual reflection or conceptual tasks, however, they are more likely to prefer a wider variety of places — both in and out of the office.
