Comparing Automation to Manual Processes
|Challenges||Trimble Software||Manual Processes|
|Quickly calculate physical distances||Automated. Allows multiple distances (2M SF per hour)||Typically AutoCAD. Allows 1 distance measurement at a time (50K SF per hour)|
|Quickly calculate reduced capacity||Automated. Includes closed offices and client-specific rooms||Typically spreadsheets. Need to create a list of all spaces to use, offices and other rooms|
|Create back to office plans||Import HR list automatically gets a list of conflicts, allows for moving of people to different phases or seats. Support multiple distances||Need to manually verify conflicts. No support for moving of people|
|Support flexible desking||Uses physical distance calculations to have desks online and offline. Supports flexible phasing option (i.e. difference desk on different days) and supports neighbourhoods||Make desks online one by one based on Autocad plans with no checks to ensure physical distancing|
|Employee facing floor plans||Provides employees with up to date floorplans with colour coding. See who is sitting where||No employee-facing floorplans|
