Let's say that an office of a hundred employees recently started flex working, and that they have seventy flexible workplaces at their disposal, and now you want to find out if seventy is enough or too much.
The data you'd need to calculate how many flexible workplaces you'd need would be: occupancy over time, and more precisely, the maximum occupancy during that period of time. This is exactly the data our tooling collects.
Let's expand on the former scenario of one hundred employees, and let's say you've gathered logon data over the last year. It is now possible to calculate, at any point in time over the entire year, the number of concurrently occupied flexible workplaces. This also provides information about the free computers at any point in time over the entire year. And finally, not only that.
The data also provide the highest occupancy during the whole year, i.e. the specific point in time when most of the hundred employees were working on a flexible workplace.
This, in turn, provides the number of computers that have been free all year, provides the absolute number of flexible workplaces you would need for your hundred employees, and thus whether the seventy you have suffice or whether you could taken more out of production without ever running into capacity problems.
