As we consider the future of the workplace, it is obvious that technology will play a prominent role in what these spaces provide for the occupiers. In the fast-evolving landscape of work culture, technology stands as the primary catalyst, driving transformation, adaptability, flexibility, and engagement. From completely onsite to fully remote and then hybrid, offices have gone through different phases. To cater to these unique requirements, flex space operators are taking measures that can accommodate large teams and fulfill their needs.  
As we navigate through the realms of remote work, flexible arrangements, and collaborative environments, the role of cutting-edge tech solutions has become increasingly evident. In this blog, we will highlight these technology-related measures that are actually transforming the experience of workspaces in India. 

3 Emerging Advanced Tech Solutions for Workspaces in India 

Digital Access

Gone are the days of cumbersome entry processes and time-consuming security checks. Today, managed and flex space providers are leveraging technology to streamline the entire process of accessing the building with highly efficient security and safety measures. These technology-backed access systems for both employees and visitors include biometric access, RFID, and smartphone-based applications to provide hassle-free entry. 

For occupiers, this simply means no more fumbling with access cards or waiting in long queues. With a tap or a swipe, they can easily enter the premises, enhancing overall convenience, security, workplace experience, and productivity. On the other hand, with these app-based solutions, occupiers can easily invite their visitors by generating digital passes or QR codes for quick verification and access upon arrival. Not only does this enhance the overall security of people, assets, and data, but it also creates a favorable impression of the workplace, reflecting modernity and efficiency.


In the past few years, IoT at the workplace has gained massive popularity in the realms of the commercial real estate sector. Today, the chances of retaining and attracting the best resources in technologically equipped workspaces are way higher than the traditional ones with basic facilities and numerous limitations. The integration of technology has truly helped flex space operators to cater to the unique requirements of businesses of all sizes and verticals.

Managed and flex spaces are equipped with IoT-enabled meeting rooms and motion sensors that not only provide a modern experience to the workforce but also conserve a major chunk of energy. Most importantly, these IoT-enabled meeting rooms allow operators and occupiers to monitor the usage of these amenities and use them accordingly. Moreover, IoT-enabled devices contribute to sustainability efforts by reducing energy consumption and carbon footprints. Based on the occupancy, smart thermostats regulate heating and cooling systems, while motion sensors ensure that lights are only activated when needed.  

App-Based Solution for Flex Space Operators

For pure-play managed and flexible workspace providers, technology is the cornerstone to not only manage the entire building operations but to also deliver a seamless experience to the occupiers. To address the unique requirements of businesses and their workforce, these operators are taking effective measures to manage their facilities and amenities to have real-time control. 

Do not worry if you need to reserve your parking space or grab a sandwich on the go because these operators have successfully streamlined the entire process for businesses of all sizes and verticals. Additionally, when it comes to amenities, occupiers can easily browse and book them on the go.
