U.K. company Spica Technologies is developing a user-centric “workplace experience solution” for global insurance firm Zurich, which will initially be available to approximately 1,600 users at the insurers’ new Quai Zurich Campus’ global headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.
Under the terms of the contract, Spica will install its Luna Workplace Experience App as well as its core GemEx Digital Twin platform.
This integrated digital solution will enable Zurich’s employees working at the headquarters as well as visiting global staff, to interact with disparate enterprise systems in the building such as security access control, meeting room booking, and FM service requests.
All services will be augmented with the latest Internet of Things sensor and internal positioning technologies to provide location-based services via a seamless holistic app interface. In addition, Zurich’s corporate real estate and facilities management teams will benefit from a wealth of data, to provide service improvements supported by an in-depth analysis of how employees are using the building and space, Spica said.
David Morley, head of workplace transformation at Zurich, said: “The implementation of Spica’s Luna Workplace Experience App and GemEx platform will help us to provide more supportive, immersive, and pleasurable employee experiences. We are very pleased to be working with Spica and look forward to continuing the journey together.”
Spica CEO Tim Streather commented: “We are delighted to work with Zurich on this exciting journey. More than ever, it will be essential for employers to design workplaces that are healthy, productive and fun destinations for employees and visitors, whilst creating desired experiences. Zurich’s forward-thinking, employee-centric approach is a shining example, and we look forward to strengthening our collaboration in the years to come.”
Headquartered in Birmingham, Spica provides tech solutions for the real estate segment. The firm builds innovative applications that help facilities management, building owners and occupiers deliver an improved workplace experience for employees and users.
