Outcome: Both locals to Munich and visitors to the new building were able to book rooms on the go that were suited to their exact needs. By including photos, detailed room information, and a responsive map of each floor, we were able to give users access to available rooms and help them navigate more efficiently.
When a room is occupied, the application updates in real time and is shown as unavailable. Individuals navigating the space can easily and efficiently find a space that suits their needs by referencing the map or list view of available spaces in the building.
From a recent internal press release: “The Center has had 13,000+ visitors so far this year, and during her visit, Ginni [Rometty] had the opportunity to experience firsthand what our clients and partners do on a daily basis at the Center – a building that lives and breathes IoT, Watson, Cloud, Cognitive Solutions and helps our clients come to a better understanding of the value of IoT through demos, client labs, co-located partner ecosystem, digital twin, and much more.”
