Automation has spread its wings to include work spaces, which has led to the development of digital or responsive offices, or simply put,” The Smart Office”.
The idea is to integrate technology into the physical space as well as the employees’ workflow to improve their experience, increase productivity and decrease costs. This may sound like a tall order, but working models have met and surpassed expectations in this sphere. With the constant development of “the internet of things”, inter connectivity and controls and machine learning technology, the possibilities seem endless.

The smart office is a great idea for a business or organization to upgrade its facilities for its employees as well as increase throughput and productivity. However the technology has to be supported with a robust internet provider, strong IT support services and back up options in case of breakdowns. They may also require repeated training to get them to use the technology with confidence. Too many changes can be daunting for employees and may be counter productive. They may get bogged down with all the technology and this could reduce effectiveness and employee satisfaction in the long run. So organizations must determine how much is too much, when it comes to optimizing a smart workplace.
Even though the concept of a smart office is gaining popularity, it is highly customized to suit an organization’s individual needs. So the age old method of benchmarking may not apply consumers looking into building a smart office for themselves. What may be a smart office for one business may not be smart for another. Therefore consumers should look at the menu of options available and decide which one is best suited for their company.
