by | 15 Feb 2023

We’re always continuously developing and improving our products to make work a better place. 2022 was a year full of updates and new modules for our Spica Workplace App, here’s a rundown of some of the most exciting new features:

Visits Module

With our new Visits Module, you can create a seamless and hassle-free experience for your visitors. Our automated visitor management system empowers your front desk staff and FM teams to optimize operations and create a frictionless and streamlined process that enhances employee and visitor experiences. 

Creating a visit for a visitor has never been easier. Simply add details such as parking information and the location of the meeting within the Spica Workplace App. Quick and simple communication is enabled between the host and reception team via the app, allowing the receptionist to view the list of visitors registered by the host and easily sign them in.

Once your visitors have checked in, an automated notification will be sent directly to the host through the app. This allows the host to greet their visitor promptly, creating a seamless and efficient experience for both the visitor and host. With the integration between visits, my feeds, notifications, and book modules, you can manage your visitors more efficiently and enhance employee and visitor experiences in the workplace. Say goodbye to the hassle of paper-based visitor management systems and hello to a hassle-free, modern solution with the Spica Workplace Visits module! 

Enhancements to Requests Module

Spica Workplace App’s new request module allows you to submit and manage requests in a building with convenience and simplicity. It has been significantly improved with the integration of more CAFM tooling and support for reading QR codes. Employees can now easily submit and manage requests with convenience and simplicity, empowering them to take control of their work environment. With a specific QR code allocated for the asset, employees can simply scan it using their phone, and a request will be raised in the app. All of the information, including the asset’s location, will be sent automatically to the maintenance team.

Additional Booking Rule Options

 Our Booking Module now offers additional booking rule options like rotational schedules, team-based booking, add attendees, check-in/out, autobump, and colleague booking. You can use real-time resource search and filter by amenities, live occupancy, or environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and noise level. You can book desks, meeting rooms, parking spaces, lockers, equipment, and any company resource that can be made bookable. Our platform is flexible and can be customized to your organization’s needs to support agile working practices, improve health and well-being at work, and help attract and retain talent.
