Partnering with Flybits to Deliver the Workplace of the Future

Posted on

We are delighted to announce we recently entered a strategic partnership with Flybits, a context-as-a-service company that enables organisations to utilise data intelligence with minimal complexity. The partnership will combine  our global expertise in Facilities Management, and Flybits’ context-aware computing and machine intelligence  to deliver the workplace of the future.

Flybits uses data intelligence to deliver relevant information to the right users at the right time. The unique platform unifies sources of proprietary, public, and sensory data to deliver highly personalised user experiences that drive engagement.

This partnership will enable us to develop a connected workplace solution that is powered by data. Our clients will now be able to customise the day-to-day experiences of their employees, visitors, students, patients and staff.

With Flybits’ seamless integration of proprietary data, like organisational role or meeting room availability, with public data from third-party APIs, like location or historical preferences, we will be able to deliver content and services relevant to each visitor’s unique needs and interests.

For example, if an employee walks into a boardroom for a scheduled meeting, the relevant documents can appear on their smartphone and the room’s digital display. In this instance, using locations from beacons and employee permissions enables the  organisation to ensure the information remains confidential and secure. Alternatively, when a non-employee arrives on site, a welcome message will be sent instantly and the appropriate employee notified.

During meetings, board members can receive relevant information based on access level, permissions and agenda. At university campuses, students, faculty members and Facilities Management staff can receive relevant and timely information when visiting the campus.  These interactions, customised based on a number of contextual data, enhance the visitor experience and increase workplace productivity.

“We are delighted to be forming a partnership with an innovative, global company like Bouygues” said Flybits Founder & CEO, Dr. Hossein Rahnama. “This relationship will allow us to bring our data intelligence capabilities to the facilities management space, expanding our total addressable market, especially across Europe.”

Emmanuel Chautemps, Director of Commercial Buildings at Bouygues Energies and Services added; “A context-aware, intelligent workplace will help our customers establish themselves as leaders in building efficiency, employee productivity and talent retention. We look forward to working with Flybits to continuously improve our connected workplace offering.”.
