Given how much technology they contain, it’s surprising how little the typical office space has actually changed in the past two decades. Robin is aiming to change that, providing businesses with an automated system that adds an intelligence layer to the traditional workplace.
Robin essentially serves as a dashboard for your office. Using BLE/iBeacons with sensors, Robin can detect when specific people have entered your workspace. When you walk into a room with a connected smartphone, Robin signs you into the room automatically and shares the information that you’ve indicated you’re willing to share with other people who’ve already arrived. (For example, Robin might share your contact information with everyone else who is in the room.) At the same time, you’ll be able to see which colleagues are nearby and manage calendars for conference rooms within your building all on your smartphone.
Robin’s office intelligence tools are designed to eliminate many of the headaches that go along with running business meetings, minimizing hassles like room booking, generating minutes, and locating colleagues who are running late. One of the side benefits of using Robin within your office space is that the app also provides users with analytics. Landlords and business owners can see how their spaces are being used, and they can shape their spaces based on actual data that’s been collected by Robin’s sensors.
