Acquisition creates new leader in AI-powered hybrid workplace technology

HubStar, an industry leader in hybrid workplace solutions has acquired Relogix, a leading provider of workplace occupancy sensors and analytics solutions, as part of its mission to “accelerate the world’s transition to smarter ways of working”.

The mass adoption of hybrid work – and rising awareness of the underutilisation of space – is accelerating the demand for secure, unified technology solutions that collect, connect and analyse data to inform and guide strategic workplace decisions. HubStar, a privately held, global company with headquarters in Marlborough, Massachusetts and London, says its strategic integration of Ottowa-based Relogix establishes the business as the “definitive leader” in AI-powered insights into workspace utilisation.

The move combines HubStar’s patented analytics capabilities, deep learning technology, and commitment to R&D investment with Relogix’s market-leading workplace analytics platform, Conexus. It also brings HubStar together with Relogix’s ecosystem of partners, its patent-pending predictive forecasting model, and Relogix’s range of rapidly deployable sensors.

HubStar says it is “now set to disrupt the workplace technology market” by providing the data and tools required to balance office space supply with fluctuating hybrid demand, while also delivering a competitive workplace experience that drives positive people and business outcomes.

Steve Vatidis, Executive Chairman, HubStar said: “By providing customers and partners with a new way to optimise workplace value, our latest acquisition represents an inflection point in the industry that will fundamentally change market dynamics.

“This transaction will strengthen HubStar’s position at the nexus of developing AI-powered workplace trends. It will expand our reach and drive innovation for existing HubStar and Relogix customers, as well as the vast number of organisations struggling to navigate the complexity inherent in hybrid work.”

Vatidis continued: “HubStar’s continued commitment to R&D investment will strengthen HubStar’s position as the defacto workplace platform, while enhancing its value by broadening partner relationships.

“The industry is crying out for a step-change in time-to-value and data accuracy to empower confident decisions around how much space is required and how it should be configured to deliver the best possible employee experience at the lowest cost.

“The next phase of HubStar’s journey will be accelerated by the combination of our AI-powered utilisation measurement and hybrid occupancy optimisation capabilities with the highly automated, easy to install, no footprint sensors that Relogix is renowned for.

“We look forward to working with the talented Relogix team to bring this complementary technology, and a new standard of operations, to workplace leaders around the globe.”
