The Ever Evolving and Future of Access Control

So what does it mean to the commercial real estate technology and innovation industry and what about all the legacy tech installed already?

The Reimagined Workplace: Mobile Apps & Employee Experience

We are moving towards a permanent hybrid workplace – one where people will occupy and move between ‘preferred work’ locations: at home, on the road, and in the office. This creates a distributed workforce. The demand then – is to create an equitable and connected workplace solution for workers across places and things in real-time – regardless of their current working location. The best workplace experience platforms lead with a holistic ecosystem that streamlines multiple use cases into one mobile app experience that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

  • David Xides, Enterprise Account Executive, Inpixon
