This could involve datacentre relocation, marketing campaign to change behaviours, employee engagement strategy, supply chain and governance review and improvements, increase energy use accountability by business unit etc. The company’s clients include: restaurant chains, universities, airports, hotels and warehousing business. The company is also developing a solution to improve staff productivity. The company is currently leading a project with the UK’s innovation agency sponsored by the UK government's department for business, researching the effect of building interior quality on workplace productivity. This project will result in the design of a consultancy and software as a service solution to improve worker productivity, well-being and reduce absenteeism in office buildings. The research investigation will be taking place over the next six months, followed by a deployment stage which will collect performance data from workplace settings. Later this year, consultancy services will be made available to the wider market place, and this will be followed by integrated software and control solutions that are currently projected to launch in 2017. The company wishes to find other consultancy organisations in Europe and beyond with experience in the field of building improvements and facility management to develop business partnerships. The partner would be expected to either act as a sub consultant for the UK company on projects outside the UK or to license the solutions.
