When a large number of employees spend some of their working hours somewhere other than the office, this leaves unused capacity. The purpose of an effective workplace management system, such as we have developed in ti&m places, is to identify, manage, and make productive use of this capacity.
The benefits to the user are front and foremost here. In a flexible and dynamic working environment, everyone needs reliable answers to the key questions: Where can I sit, is the necessary equipment available (monitor, docking station, keyboard, etc.), where’s the nearest coffee machine, and where are the toilets? Who am I sitting near, where exactly are the other members of my team? If these points are clarified at the outset, employees have a solid “anchor” that will give them security amid the hubbub of working life. ti&m places offers precisely this: a user-friendly method of booking workspaces and resources, and for accessing all relevant information – all fully integrated into Microsoft Teams, without the need to login to another system or deal with any other obstacles.
“Places provides our Contact Center employees with a workplace reservation solution that is efficient, intuitive and integrated into MS Teams. Its scalability, flexibility and adaptability offer great potential for us to extend it to our different business units.”
– Silvan Schälchli, Business IT Expert, Swisscom (Schweiz) AG
The company itself benefits – indirectly, of course – from the benefits to employees, but it also benefits directly from the management options offered by ti&m. For example, it is very flexible when it comes to blocking and releasing capacity. Whether social distancing needs to be introduced in the context of a pandemic, or office capacity is being mothballed on a trial basis – the business will always have an overview of shortages, user behavior and acceptance of the available capacity.
As a result, ti&m places is becoming an indispensable tool for businesses and their employees, allowing them to create stable conditions for effective working and efficient use of available capacity in the reality of the new, dynamic workplace.
