Asure Software Issues Predictions On Top Workplace Management Trends For 2013

Stocks in this article: ASUR

Asure Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software solutions, today issued its predictions of the top workplace management trends that will take place in 2013.

“Technology is driving innovation in the workplace, and progressive organizations that take advantage of that innovation are well suited for sustained growth,” said Pat Goepel, CEO of Asure Software. “Our predictions for 2013 are based on where the workplace management market is headed and recent technical advancements that will help businesses improve productivity, enhance collaboration, and reduce real estate and other operational costs.”

Trend #1: Leaders Will Cut Infrastructure Costs Using Smart Devices at Home and at Work

Research firm IDC predicts the mobile worker population will exceed 2.3 billion by 2015. Further, Juniper research claims 150 million employees worldwide bring their own smartphone or tablet device to work, a number that’s expected to grow to 350 million by 2014. Given this unprecedented rate of growth, employees are now leveraging their own smartphones and mobile devices at both home and work.

Business leaders can take advantage of this trend and significantly reduce infrastructure costs by eliminating the need to provide all employees with desktop or laptop systems, employee badges, home offices, cubes and more. Rather, the workplace of the 2013 will see employees using conveniently located touch panels and facial recognition via mobile devices to plug in to their workforce, reserve office space and collaborate with colleagues.

Trend #2: Uncovering Real Estate Inefficiencies and Cost Savings by Analyzing Space Utilization

Real estate and facilities costs typically represent one of an employer’s largest expenses. Commercial real estate prices have begun to rebound from the most recent recession while real

estate maintenance costs for fundamentals such as heating, air conditioning, electricity, and water continue to rise. To help offset those costs, leading companies are turning to automated, passive space utilization detection and analytics technology to capture and analyze space utilization rates. When the most accurate space utilization data is captured, organizations can cut real estate costs by as much as 30 percent just through using their space more efficiently. Common practices include reducing or repurposing existing workspaces, implementing hoteling practices, and properly planning for future expansions.

Capturing space utilization rates also enables companies to align their workspace with the changing mobile workforce. As more employees work remotely, their primary purpose for going to the office is to collaborate. Understanding workspace utilization rates allows companies to improve workspace density by increasing worker-to-workspace ratios to 1:3 or greater as part of their office hoteling initiative, while simultaneously incorporating a more open, collaborative environment within the workplace.
