Verdantix: Serraview and Accruent partnership is good for real estate

This week, Serraview and Accruent tied the knot in a strategic partnership that brings together the providers of a best-of-breed point solution for space management and an integrated workspace management system (IWMS) solution. This deal makes perfect sense. Serraview explicitly doesn’t want to broaden out of space management. But its space management tools are much more powerful than those typically found in IWMS solutions.

While a lot of companies track the presence of employees by looking at who swipes in and out of buildings and calculating the occupancy ratio, this misses the fact that actual utilisation is considerably lower given flexible work arrangements, external meetings, and other types of absences.

Serraview (and competitors such as Rifiniti) look to create a dynamic view of how office space is used based on existing datasets such as badge swipes, any occupancy sensors present (such as those for lighting), beacons and IP activity. The numbers are shocking for many heads of real estate. Are the typical buildings they use really below 50% actual utilisation?

In Verdantix’s recent research, we found that too many firms work very hard to generate quite small savings from their utility bills and don’t spend enough time looking at space consolidation and hot-desking strategies which are high return activities. So this deal putting together Accruent’s reach and scale with this type of powerful solution is good for the corporate end users who will be able to target a much higher potential savings pool…
