IoT as source for product innovation - Lisa Glassner, Steelcase
As a manufacturer of office furniture, Steelcase deals with the topics of modern working methods and working environments. Technology has always influenced people's behaviour at work and contributed significantly to decisive changes. Today, there is no company that can ignore the new challenges and opportunities.
At a company that was founded more than 100 years ago, we are also strongly concerned with what technological change means for us as a company and as part of our network of customers, partners and suppliers. The topic IoT for buildings and workspaces creates a stronger visibility of the efficiency of these tools for companies and their employees. Many decision-makers are unsure which workspaces are needed and how flexible they need to be. Modern sensor technology and data analysis allow well-founded decisions to be made and better solutions to be developed.
