About ActivityAnalysis

ActivityAnalysis by FacilityQuest is a space management solution that allows users to properly utilize their workplaces. Prior to making important planning decisions for workplace optimization, a FacilityQuest space utilization study shows “how many people are doing what types of activities” in each space type.

Utilization analysis helps maximize real estate investments and optimize the workplace for employee productivity. Utilization data can help change management by showing that space will deliver more value when put to a different use.

FacilityQuest studies use observers to gather data that provides insights not obtainable with self-reporting surveys, sensors, or other data gathering methods. On-site survey teams use hand-held devices ...

Quick, simple, comprehensive utilization analysis software

Pros

Simple to use, cloud based, intuitive and quick analysis at your fingertips. Have laptop, will have access to your data and visualization capability

Cons

In one of the sections (can't remember which), when assigning a space to a department, I couldn't assign in batch, but by record. That was annoying.

Thanks so much, Ron for your kind words and comments. We have enjoyed working with you on a number of big projects. It's great that you mention the data visualizations. On your next project we can explore some solutions for capturing data across multiple spaces; there are techniques now that might not have been available at the time. Thanks again for the feedback!

Software Catered to Activity Analysis

Activity Analysis helps our clients understand how they are using their space!

Pros

This software has some great features which are uniquely designed for activity analysis. It is very helpful to be able to see observer data as it is being recorded; this makes it easy to do back-end data editing. The photo feature is also helpful as it allows you to tag images to a specific location.

Cons

The software can be a bit difficult to navigate since the user interface is not always intuitive. If you have an issue, there is probably a feature which will solve your problem, you just may have to search a while until you find it.

It's been great, a little expensive, but powerful tool

Conference Room utilization, mobility studies, utilization rates by department, role, floor, buildings, etc.

Pros

the ease of use and ability to use across platforms (ipones, ipads). ease of exporting data into excel and create functional reports

Cons

the numbering system (hard for some users to keep track of locations) and cost is a little expensive (at my last use, it wa per data point, not sure if this has been reduced since then)

Great Solution for Space Utilization Data Collection and Processing

Very positive. Extremely useful data to clients and real estate services firms to inform workplace optimization and workforce mobility.

Pros

Error trapping. Ease of use. Route map creation.

Cons

Stop tags. But those are no longer required.

Chris, thanks for your comments, especially about error trapping. Yes, it matters to be be able to monitor and intervene quickly when observations show some hints of misunderstanding the instructions.
