A "digital workplace" refers to any devices, software programs or platforms that employees use. As more and more apps and tools come online, workflows become disconnect.
But now, with a campus-specific platform, digital systems that power a business can be combined in one central hub where information is accessible 24/7. Why stop there? Modern tech such as AI, IoT and mobile platforms have made it possible to combine the two separate "realms" - digital touchpoints and our physical spaces, or interactions.

So, what's it like working in a smart campus?
The main benefits for employees are increased efficiency and a better overall experience. After all, new technology is cool - but that's not the point. The future of work is all about interactive, location-aware spaces that offer personalized messages and reminders, all to make work more enjoyable (less frustrating).
According to Gallup, 66% of US employees are either not engaged or actively disengaged. The smart campus emphasizes employee experience so that your team can do better.
One of the main pillars of a smart venue is location-aware technology. This term refers to a broad range of capabilities such as live indoor/ outdoor mapping with turn-by-turn directions (powered by Bluetooth beacons) and proximity marketing for real-time messaging and usability based on your current location.
This type of contextually-aware, interactive technology upgrades the digital workplace by sending employees personalized messages and reminders relevant to the exact time and place they're in.
Finding your way across campus, where offices and departments are constantly shifting, is simplified with up-to-date access to campus maps, venue info, and wayfinding tools to keep employees moving efficiently about their day.

We've discussed how the smart campus changes the future of work from an employee perspective ... but what about the people whose job it is to manage the space itself?
Facility managers benefit from this tech transformation by having access to real-time geographical data. They can observe points of interest, monitor ingress and egress flows and quickly respond to security threats.
