PointGrab Sensors: Unleashing the Power of Data for Smarter Workspaces

PointGrab’s smart sensors provide real-time, high-fidelity data that can be used to optimise workspace layouts, improve room utilisation, and reduce operational costs. Unlike traditional sensors, PointGrab’s CogniPoint sensor leverages a powerful combination of technologies:

  • High-Resolution Imaging: Creates a detailed image of the workspace, providing insights beyond simple presence detection.
  • Object Tracking: Analyses object dimensions and movement patterns, enabling advanced space utilisation analysis.
  • Artificial Intelligence: Uses machine learning algorithms to extract valuable insights from the sensor image, such as occupancy trends and potential security risks.

This rich data empowers businesses to make data-driven decisions about their workspaces. Imagine optimising layouts to promote collaboration, identifying underutilised areas for cost savings, or even enhancing security measures with real-time object detection. Anders+Kern’s expertise in workspace technology solutions, combined with PointGrab’s cutting-edge sensor technology, will provide customers with a powerful solution for creating smarter and more efficient workspaces.

“We are excited to partner with Anders+Kern to expand the reach of our Sensor Data System in the UK workspace technology market,” said Larry Levy, VP Customer Success & Partnerships at PointGrab. “Anders+Kern’s strong reputation and deep understanding of customer needs make them an ideal partner to help us deliver the benefits of our technology to businesses across the UK.”
