Asset Management Software not only tracks staff movements and visually represents these on floor plans, but it can also produce detailed ‘space’ reports. Therefore this could be used in tracking the occupancy of various business units as well as departments. Furthermore it can also calculate how much space (square meters / feet) each unit and department occupies.
The company then can finally use this data to work out leasing costs for each department. It can even include the ‘common’ space calculations (corridors, storerooms, circulation) and work out a percentage that a department uses of the common spaces. These reports also give totals as well as summaries for each floor level and department for that level. Depending on how your company is structured, i.e. if you have other buildings/offices in other states, it can also produce ‘per State’ totals etc.
