Encouraging employees to connect to WiFi is the best way to increase the accuracy of WiFi occupancy analytics. But why should employees do it?
Encouraging employees to connect to WiFi is the best way to increase the accuracy of WiFi occupancy analytics. But why should employees do it? Here are some important points and arguments that might help you drive the discussion, create clarity and bring everyone on board.
1. Privacy protection and IT security
First and foremost: Privacy protection is key, and our occupancy tracking is completely anonymous. It is for us impossible to identify individuals, so connecting to the WiFi network does not pose any additional risk. Please read more about how secure and privacy-protective is Basking. In a nutshell, our Basking complies with GDPR and other privacy regulations.
2. Higher accuracy in occupancy metrics
Basking uses advanced machine learning algorithms to estimate office occupancy by analyzing non-sensitive metrics of the WiFi network. As usual in the field of AI, the better the raw data, the better results can be achieved. Encouraging employees to connect to WiFi increases the quality of the raw data we ingest and has a positive impact on the quality of our results.
3. Beating COVID
Basking has developed some COVID-19 related office occupancy features, like the adjusted capacity and the back-to-office recommendations. Having reliable occupancy metrics is key to understanding occupancy during the pandemic and making smart decisions. Ultimately we want to keep employees safe, and connecting to WiFi is a simple step every single employee can do to contribute.
4. Better office space
Anonymous Occupancy helps workplace and Real Estate managers to improve the office conditions. Encouraging employees to connect to WiFi and explaining this goal is one simple step to making employees part of this quest.
5. Possible lower mobile costs
Employees might also benefit from fewer LTE/5G costs if they connect to the corporate, depending on their contract :-)
