Occupancy sensor data and dashboards provide detailed insights into how desk and meeting spaces are used at PostNord’s Danish HQ.

With that information, the company was able to reduce the number of workstations, improve meeting room occupancy, and optimize cleaning times. After an organizational change and the creation of new business units, PostNord knew exactly where it could move people to a new home base or where it should not transfer people because occupancy was already at the right level.
