Case study – Smart offices with Steerpath


smart office connected for steerpath platform

Steerpath solutions include interactive 3D campus maps, indoor positioning, employee mobile apps and IoT analytics – all integrated into one easy to deploy enterprise platform.

With Steerpath, facility CAD drawings are easily converted into colorful online maps. Steerpath acts as a real-time data platform that provides visibility and map-centric tools for enterprise management, employees, and visitors. Google-style maps, with indoor positioning, enable turn-by-turn wayfinding, global to local zooming, and search and find capabilities.

Haltian occupancy IoT sensors (Thingsee PRESENCE), can be integrated into the Steerpath platform, to support visualising real-time data on floor plan maps. On top of its mapping platform, Steerpath platform includes mobile booking tools for office desks and rooms, colleague finding, employee feedback, and workspace analytics for office occupancy and utilisation.

Haltian and Steerpath collaboration started when Steerpath was seeking a new occupancy sensor solution that was the easiest and quickest to install with mesh connectivity in corporate offices.

The challenge:
Where to find an easy to use wireless IoT device?

Office occupancy and utilisation analytics have emerged as one of the critical applications for corporate management. It requires the deployment of occupancy sensors in rooms and desks, and connectivity to cloud analytics, dashboards, and mapping.

When Steerpath started searching for a partner that provided occupancy sensors, the primary criteria was to select a reliable and accurate device that was easy to deploy with no onsite configuration needed. Also, mesh connectivity was considered important so that the number of gateways on the installation sites could be minimized. The devices were also required to be wireless and have years of battery life for the lowest possible maintenance needs.

The solution

For Steerpath, the winning solution was Haltian IoT occupancy sensors. “For us, the most important things were the reliable and flexible delivery and easy deployment,” says Tuomas Ilola, CEO of Steerpath. “To make our customers happy, the reliability and easiness of IoT solutions must be at a world-class level.”

Steerpath uses Thingsee PRESENCE IoT occupancy sensors, which monitor the occupancy of work desks and meeting rooms. Steerpath captures the sensor data into its cloud database for analytics and reporting. For example, all the information from one room or floor, either real-time or for any given time period, can be seen and visualized and analyzed on the Steerpath cloud platform.
