Atos deploys Workspace solution in partnership with ISS

Atos engaged the team at Spica to deploy our GemEx Engine® (formerly Devicepoint®) for Workspace solution nationally. We worked closely together to monitor and understand occupancy and utilisation levels across the whole UK portfolio.

Atos is a multinational information technology (IT) service and consulting company with over 110000 employees in 73 countries. They develop and implement innovative digital solutions that support the business transformation of clients and address the environmental and social challenges we all face.

This Case Study, provided by Atos in partnership with ISS, looks at the benefits, technology, and data insights obtained from using Devicepoint® for Workspace. Download the full report here.


Devicepoint® standard analytics and dashboards allow our customer to efficiently and effectively plan relocations and consolidations across the whole of the Atos UK Portfolio, highlighting trends, patterns and requirements for space usage. Spica also provided custom reporting to allow for benchmarking with the Atos global estate.

This data analysis provided the business cases for property consolidations in London and Durham with further floor consolidations in Wolverhampton and Runcorn resulting in a footprint reduction of over 3,600m2 and providing capital investment return within year 1.

“The addition of Sensor Technology to our FM Digital portfolio underpins our Real Estate strategy and decision making, the clarity of in office display screens and ability to quickly analyse occupancy trends enables clear and precise data supporting business case decisions relating to Real Estate disposals, consolidations and acquisitions as well as giving staff the opportunity to occupy a suitable location within the office to suit their personal environmental preferences.

The collaborative approach between all parties in the proposal, implementation and agreed fully managed service has delivered a great scalable solution.”

Mike Shanahan, Atos FM Director

Direct benefits to employees are also being realised, real-time displays installed in each location clearly identify agile hot-desking availability, allowing staff to easily find a suitable space to work and the facilities team to support employees.

Monitoring and reporting of environmental levels (temperature, humidity, noise) provides a more comfortable working environment and allows for proactive identification of service issues.
