IBM is embedding new AI capabilities to its TRIRIGA real estate and facilities management software. The new intelligent features are aimed to help real estate and facility managers optimize office space and enhance the workplace experience. IBM estimates that up to 40% of commercial office space is underutilized. TRIRIGA customers with sizeable real estate portfolios will learn about occupancy data from sources such as WiFi and IoT sensors.
The new AI-features will identify occupant trends and patterns down to a single floor and allow TRIRIGA customers to anticipate and respond to employee occupancy needs and address relocation requests and make adjustments to office layouts. The new TRIRIGA Assistant, a conversational AI tool uses NLP to help employees coordinate with colleagues around things like scheduling conference rooms and locating assigned workspaces.
