Benefits and Insights

Why use Archibus?

Key differentiators & advantages of Archibus

  • Reduce Operational Costs: Maximizing space usage can help keep overhead costs low by ensuring an organization is only using as much space as it needs. Automated space management features such as room booking reduce labor hours required to perform these managerial tasks and streamlines various facility workflows.
  • Streamline Moves: Moving spaces can be a logistical nightmare — Archibus coordinates teams for large-scale moves or facilitates individual moves within departments. Employees and managers can request moves through the system, and all parties can track the progress of the request in real time.
  • Organize Spaces: A visual space planning interface lets managers color-code room usage, plan seating charts, find resources and assign room purposes from a remote hub.
  • Optimize Space Usage: Unassigned seating, inefficient density planning and inconvenient spaces reduce the efficacy of real estate use. Archibus offers insights into space planning to optimize how a workforce uses its space.
  • Gain Strategic Insight: Track metrics to gain visibility into operational costs, occupancy rates and more. Users can configure role-based dashboards to quickly and easily access these statistics, set alerts and perform analysis.
  • Drive Better Performance: Use these metrics to identify patterns, highlight pain points and discover areas for improvement. Generate reports to collaborate with key decision-makers in order to make more informed data-driven decisions about the business.
  • Forecast Needs: Track metrics such as move churn, area per seat, area per occupant, etc. If there are visible trends that point toward an impending problem — decreasing space per employee, for example — managers can get ahead of them before they do.
