Just right

WISP has been excellent! Great technical and customer support an intuitive suite of built in reports and the ability to request customization. You can "right size" the module subscription to fit your need. The system is not bloated, it simply does what it promises to do and in my experience sometimes more than you expected. It is reassuring to know that I can answer various space and head count related questions usually in under 5 minutes.

Pros

The system is straight forward, easy to understand not overly complicated get the results you're looking for.

Cons

The only caveat it's difficult on mobile devices but it is being addressed.

Excellent User Friendly Program !!

This has been a wonderful experience since day one! Each contact is so helpful and responds very quickly. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is our main contact and has helped us work out so many issues over the years and has worked closely with us to create the best possible way for Wisp to work for us, and have our information updated automatically when possible. Wonderful customer service! When I have questions they are quickly answered, issues resolved.

Pros

Very organized, easy to read and easy to get to the info I need. VERY user friendly. Quick to learn, quick to use. Provides us with the information we need a real time as we update. It offers more options that we have used.

Cons

There are times we wish it could conform to our detailed specifics. Having said that, we are aware that with programing changes you can accomplish most requests but with our restricted budgets and timeframes some aren't attainable.....or would really be worth the costs.

AT&T - CRE WISP

Pros

I love the layout of the program, once you understand how to navigate through the program it is very user friendly. All of my buildings and occupancy data can be accessed in a matter of seconds which is very helpful for a campus of 4,500+ employees. The color coded occupancy data per leader is also very helpful when overseeing the floor plate by Business Unit. I also appreciated the fact that I was able to add my floor leads to ensure the occupancy is accurate.

Cons

At first, it was a little difficult to navigate but [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and the team did a great job of hosting training sessions. These worked really well for my team and I. It would also be nice to incorporate our HR systems into WISP so that it tracks when employees leave the business by generating a report. I agree that not tying it web phone as employees sometimes change their own seats would cause too much confusion but if a notice when they leave was made available that would be helpful. Although I believe that would have to be on the AT&T side and not through WISP.

Daniel, we love to hear that Wisp is user-friendly and easy to navigate. It's great that you've granted your floor leads access to help maintain the data. We always encourage this as it helps improve data accuracy and integrity! With such a huge campus, easily accessing your portfolio within seconds sounds like a big help. When you are ready to further integrate your HR systems with Wisp, let us know and we will be happy to assist.

Easy to Use Space Planning Software

Having the whole portfolio reporting on a consistent USF basis and having full transparency on a global basis is the primary driver. We are implementing an auto data feed and SSO which should improve accuracy and usability.

Pros

It is easy to use and the support is fantastic.

Cons

The recently introduced reservation module is rudimentary and not consistent with the overall software. Hoping they will improve and expand this functionality soon.

WISP's Overall Performance for my Job Function

WISP has revolutionized the way our company internally charges our departments rent for their space usage. Making rent allocation changes is so easy now and the export and reporting features are in real time as well. WISP's space accountability and seat assignment allows us to track underutilized space more efficiently and gives us the ability to know who is located where, and if we have vacancies that can be filled.

Pros

The ability to make assignment and accountability changes in real time is the most efficient feature to me. The functionality and reporting features have such an expanded capability. With this product we have cut down a tremendous amount of labor hours doing manual change requests and alterations to the primitive accountability process we had previously. With this product you can determine if you are utilizing your space to its maximum efficiency and see where and how you can improve.

Cons

The inability for the user/operator to add/move or reconfigure standard furniture while in the furniture layer as opposed to sending the request to support.
