WorkplaceManagement History Overview


In the beginning
It all started with a book. This single, oversized and bound ledger recorded the schedule of classes, meetings, and events at Workplaces. People spent valuable time calling or visiting the scheduler’s office to find and book a room, inquire about a location and make changes. They asked, “Can’t this be faster and easier?”


Over thirty years of growth

For three decades and counting, Softwares has connected people to the tools, resources and technology they need. From simplified space and event scheduling, to complex real estate optimization, WorkplaceManagement powers your dynamic work and learning spaces. We deliver this by anticipating market and organizational trends and listening to our customers’ needs.

Mid 1980s

With a single system, Software enables people to see accurate meeting and room schedules and find and book a room across multiple buildings and departments.

Late 1980s

Employers and employees need services such as catering, facilities, IT, and security incorporated into their meetings. Software provides a centralized, computer-based system for the ordering, communications, and billing with service providers

Mid 1990s

Microsoft® Outlook is the de facto email and calendaring tool for scheduling simple meetings, but is not well-suited for managing the entire meeting lifecycle. Software works with Outlook to handle scheduling and managing meetings, rooms, events and services.

Late 1990s

With the explosive growth of real estate, Software scales and makes it easier to book meetings and rooms located in disparate global locations, buildings, and time zones.

Mid 2000s

As employees increasingly work outside the office, Software integrates with web-based video conferencing. By centralizing these resources in a single solution, Software makes it easy to hold virtual meetings.

Late 2000s

With fewer employees in the office, companies ask, “Do we need all this space?” Software adds extensive reporting to inform real estate decisions and reduce costs.

Early 2010s

As employers design their Workplace of the Future initiatives to support activity-based work, Software expands the types of schedulable space such as desks, quiet rooms, collaboration areas, and team rooms.
