Office Shifts is a solution to ensure a healthy and safe working environment for employees

Wipro Lighting in association with Dutch company, Mapiq has launched Office Shifts a smart office technology software in India.

This software is designed to enable flexibility and maximize the utilization of office space for employees in a post Covid-19 world and can be scaled up and upgraded based on the policy changes organizations need to make due to local government directives.

Last April, Wipro Lighting entered into a strategic partnership with Mapiq, a front runner in smart building technology to deliver a superior end-user experience of smart workspaces.

“Fundamental changes to the way organizations and large office complexes function has necessitated a complete rethink. Everyone has the safety and security of employees as their top priority. Social distancing, sanitizing, and restrictions on meetings and gatherings necessitate a newer and efficient manner of functioning. This is where Mapiq’s Office Shifts technology is useful. It ensures both employee safety and productivity,”said Anuj Dhir, Vice President & Business Head, Wipro Lighting.

Due to the new norm of social distancing in most offices, desks and workspaces availability will decrease by an average of 43 per cent. This means only half the employees can be in office. Organizations need to align schedules and working patterns of employees and their teams. Besides the social distancing norm, going back to office raises concerns about safety and productivity among employees. Can they work safely and which spaces in the office they can access, how will they conduct their meetings, will have to be worked out. Keeping employees informed real-time and ensuring they are evenly spread in the office is essential.

Ramakrishna Puranam, Senior General Manager – Sales, Wipro Lighting,said, “with this technology, organizing teams together, anticipating and updating office capacity quickly, is simply hassle-free. The software is available as a subscription-based model built on SaaS (Software as a Service) model. Customers can pay either as per building, per month or per building, per year model. This makes it less capital intensive and easy to afford.”
