Smarten Spaces, an award-winning global leader in digital workplace technology, announced the launch of its latest and most advanced solution, Jumpree Pro.
For the last 3 years, Smarten Spaces has been deploying its digital workplace solutions globally. Smarten Spaces helps leading Fortune 500 companies in the banking, healthcare, FMCG, and automobile verticals make successful transitions to a hybrid workplace model.
According to Gartner(R) , “Hybrid work is here to stay. With 75% of hybrid or remote knowledge workers agreeing their expectations for working flexibly have increased, there is no doubt that the future is hybrid. In fact, if an organization were to go back to a fully on-site arrangement, it would risk losing up to 39% of its workforce.”
With the rise of hybrid work, companies are remodeling their spaces to make the workplace more engaging to support collaboration and employees’ lifestyles. It is increasingly important to provide employees with the tools to manage their time efficiently in these new workflows.
Jumpree Pro is the first software tool that lets employees book any space and amenities at any workplace location on any particular day. It ensures that employees have highly productive and collaborative experiences in the workplace, making their commutes worthwhile.
Employees can use detailed intuitive 3D floor maps to book any space, anytime, to plan ahead for their day at the workplace. This can include booking a desk near their colleagues, a meeting room with the right video equipment, a private locker, a parking lot with an EV charger, or a meditation room. The engagement aspect of the software lets teams work together, nudge each other, attend events, join interest groups, and more.
“The Smarten Spaces team has been upbeat in supporting us with a solution that fits our requirements. They have been quick in innovating the application based on best practices, and the user interface upgrades on a frequent basis to help the app become user-friendly. Multiple services give our sites a flexible setup to pick as and when required. The plug-in/off approach helps in quick onboarding, especially with offices and plants re-opening across the globe.” said Nithya Balasubramanian, Global Solution Expert, Mondelez International.
“There has been a tremendous amount of learning over the past few months as people have started showing up to the office a few days a week. For all organizations, the shift to hybrid is a big change, and we understood the need for the right tools to make hybrid work a seamless experience for companies and employees. It is also critical to optimize spaces and make these spaces more interactable through technology. We help bring it all together in Jumpree Pro.” emphasizes Smarten Spaces Founder and CEO, Dinesh Malkani.
Malkani argues that the new workplace depends on catering to workers’ individual needs, so as to help everyone shine–and the right tech tools, he says, can help. For example, he suggests that employees would be better served by tools that give them scheduling autonomy: they need “the ability to book different spaces for specific types of meetings, desks they like to work on, bicycle racks for those who cycle to work, and the knowledge of who’s coming in on what days.”
From the start, Jumpree has served as an all-in-one solution for scheduling and managing hybrid office environments. The platform contains everything one needs in a space, while also easily integrating with common office software and hardware such as Outlook, Teams, Zoom, sensors, and access control. The new Pro update enhances, improves, and expands on a number of features and functionalities, including:
Book Anything: Team members can reserve anything–from meeting and community rooms to personal spaces to amenities–all in one intuitive app. Book straight from the mobile app, even when heading into the office.
New 3D Maps: Jumpree Pro now provides booking through 3D floor maps. New wayfinding tools direct users to wherever they need to go with highlighted meeting spaces and booked desks labeled on the map. Employees and managers alike can get an on-the-ground view in real time to plot their day.
AI Recommendations: Don’t have a space preference? AI will now make recommendations based on the flow of traffic, user preferences, and booking history.
Employee Engagement and Community: Jumpree Pro provides a virtual space for workers with common interests and shared projects to plan their days at the workplace, meet up, talk, attend events, and more–facilitating synergy no matter where they are.
Hybrid Scheduling: Managers and team members alike can set their own schedules while algorithms plot the most effective solutions for scheduling problems.
Space Management: Jumpree Pro uses detailed analytics to determine how much square footage you actually need–reducing day-to-day expenditures without harming productivity.
The hybrid future is already here; businesses now have to catch up. As Dinesh Malkani says, “It’s time to double down and focus on getting the shift to the future of work right.” Smarten Spaces’ Jumpree Pro can help businesses make the leap into the future of work, where employee satisfaction and productivity are balanced by leveraging the power of technology.
