Microsoft 365 vs AskCody

Have you ever wished for more hours in the day? More time to spend focusing on deep work rather than running around to meetings? (That could have been an email, Susan!)

We've all been there.

The rise of technology has given us access to a vast amount of data about how we work — but many companies don't have the tools to turn that data into real insights.

Luckily, there are several software solutions aimed at doing just that. Today, we are comparing two of the most popular workplace analytics tools — Microsoft's add on and AskCody's built-in workplace analytics solution.

Which comes out on top when it comes to pricing and features? Is one solution a better fit for your company? Let's find out.

Your office is much more than a space for work. The interior your employees walk into every morning is the foundation for promoting efficiency and employee happiness. 

You can hire a fancy office interior design company, pore over images of today’s trendiest offices, and dismantle every cubicle in site, but unless you have real insight into the way your office’s spaces are used, your efforts to create the spaces your employees actually need is just a guess.

Picture this: You prepared all week for an important meeting on Thursday afternoon. Clients have come in from out of town to attend. Partners from across the city will also be joining. In addition to the amount of time you’ve spent preparing the presentation, you spent hours searching for the right room to accommodate the number of people and technical needs, ordered catering so food arrives at the right time, and coordinated with the front desk staff each time there is a change to the guest list.

Meetings are taking place at your company every single day. Teleconferences, small group huddles, large brainstorming sessions, and formal meetings all require very different spaces and tools, and each carry great importance to the overall strategy and productivity of your business. To cater to each, your modern workplace might have various types and sizes of rooms with a number of technology options within, such as video conference tools, whiteboards, and projectors. 

Wouldn’t it be great if you had insight, whenever and wherever you needed it, into how those spaces are used, by whom, and for how long? Or what about an understanding of the things your employees want to do, but can’t, because they can’t find the proper space to execute? 

How to use Meeting Room Analytics to design your future workplace

You meet to share ideas, make some progress, gain some results, move forward, collaborate, learn, improve, grow. This is a reason that people end up in a ton of meetings every week in a professional context. It's simply the way modern organizations work these days. Therefore, meetings are an integral part of business life. Your workforce’s meetings are at the heart of your organization. They are where employees get together to collaborate and ultimately drive your company forward, possibly making them one of the most important aspects of your office environment.

In the modern days, with the help of vastly evolving technological development, people build information systems (IS) to ease and assist in execution of various daily tasks.

This battle is not easy and we would like to shed a light over some of these issues that we challenge ourselves to overcome.
