Smart Building: Ericsson Optimizes the Workplace with Senion Indoor Positioning

By Ken Briodagh August 02, 2017

In a recent release, Senion announced that Ericsson has deployed its StepInside Indoor Positioning System (IPS) in its 500,000 square foot Kista (Stockholm) headquarters. This office solution is designed by Senion’s longtime partner Flowscape, which has pre-integrated StepInside into its platform. Together, the two companies will help Ericsson employees reduce wasted time searching for people, places, or things, and drive productivity.

Using personal or work-issued smartphones, more than 4,000 employees working throughout 20 floors distributed over four buildings can now use a corporate app to easily find available rooms and spaces to work.

“Indoor positioning technology is perfect for large offices with multiple floors, offices, and meeting spaces – the bigger and more intricate the better,” said Dr. Christian Lundquist, CEO and Co-Founder, Senion. “We’re seeing that large companies are taking serious measures to combat friction in order to increase both productivity and employee satisfaction. We now aid Ericsson in giving back time to their employees so they can be more efficient in their day-to-day work.”

The implemention of StepInside at Ericsson is part of the company’s larger global platform designed to enable rapid IoT application development.

“We looked carefully at the benefits of using IPS in our offices, and determined the system would pay for itself in productivity savings alone,” said Magnus Arlidsson, Global Head Application Platform for IoT, Ericsson. “Our initial roll-out focuses on productivity improvements by saving employees time they might waste searching for things, such as conference rooms or places to work.”

The system as implemented today is the starting point for a bigger roll-out with additional workplace enhancements at Ericsson.
