Your Partner for Smart Office Innovation

Modern workplaces are all about providing a conducive work environment for those that inhabit them. While elements like open spaces, greenery, and natural lighting are all said to contribute to making the place more uplifting and, thereby, boosting productivity, there is a new and more quantifiable component that a number of companies are now turning to – transforming a regular workplace to a Smart Office.

Technology forms the heart of a smart office, and the same technology is primarily geared at enhancing employee experiences, helping them work smarter, quicker and better. The hybrid environment also leads to the best utilisation of management tools and other creative resources while streamlining processes to reduce redundancy, repetition, or inaccuracies.

On a global level, the smart office market was valued at $31.37 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $90.63 billion by 2030, growing at an 11.1% CAGR between 2021 and 2030, according to Allied Market Research. The company also highlighted that one of the main factors driving this trend is the increased focus on energy efficiency and the attention to adhering to industry standards and regulations. Locally, Oman Vision 2040 outlines the country’s path to transitioning to a green, circular economy with sustainability at its core. In line with the same, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning has announced the launch of an innovative initiative to develop three smart cities in Sohar, Nizwa, and Salalah. Keeping with the country’s vision, private developers have also announced plans to promote smart cities that will position themselves as thriving commercial and residential destinations. With business parks seeing a strong boom, smart offices will make up an integral part of these smart cities and will incorporate different elements from smart buildings to smart security and communication.

  • Detecting Employee Occupancy on Desk – Desk or occupancy sensors are non-intrusive monitoring devices that are used to assess office space usage.
