Kontakt.io Integrates with IBM TRIRIGA to Transform Real Estate Management with Near Real-Time, AI-Driven Space Occupancy

IBM TRIRIGA | September 28, 2021

Kontakt.io, a global leader in Bluetooth™ powered IoT solutions, announced an integration with IBM's AI-powered workplace management systems to deliver near real-time occupancy solutions that help address the challenges of today's workspaces, driving better realty planning, improved employee experience and enabling resilient, flexible workplaces.

The integration of Kontakt.io- with IBM TRIRIGA is expected to deliver AI-powered utilization insights across portfolios, near-real time occupancy monitoring and space management tools supporting existing IoT infrastructure already used in many offices, for example Cisco's Catalyst and Meraki access points.

Facility operators face mounting pressures to increase realty utilization and cut costs in a world of uncertainty and new workplace flexibility are creating the need for new technologies in the workspace - a need this collaboration between IBM TRIRIGA and Kontakt.io plans to address. New requirements around workplace health and building carbon footprint reduction are just some of the challenges indoor IoT solutions are here to help solve.

- Mr. Rom Eizenberg, CRO at Kontakt.io

IBM TRIRIGA Building Insights delivers AI-powered utilization insights by leveraging IoT data and TRIRIGA Space Management plans. Enterprises can collect and connect data from multiple IoT technologies including Kontakt.io's Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) room sensor and smart employee cards. Kontakt.io's nine-in-one Portal Beam room sensor for example, allows for LIVE space occupancy monitoring, at chair, desk, room and floor level, while at the same time supporting mobile phone indoor navigation, and monitoring of light, air quality, temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide and other environmental data. Kontakt.io also anonymizes data and uses thermal sensing for occupancy monitoring - without capturing or storing employee images to help address privacy.

Through this collaboration, IBM expects to be able to expand on current plug-and-play indoor IoT solutions available to TRIRIGA customers, advancing the vision of Smart Buildings and the connected versatile work environment. Adding near real-time, room-level location occupancy and environment monitoring capabilities is a demand that frequently comes from the field.
