Evoko CEO, Richard Glückman, states, “Workplace trends that started before the pandemic have only been accelerated and are now becoming the new norm. We see that organizations are increasingly seeking workplace technology that can help them transition to the new ways of working to reduce stress, increase productivity, attract and retain employees, and get the data needed to optimize resource usage. Evoko’s product portfolio is perfectly positioned to respond to these trends and the increased demand for this type of workplace technology.”
Kleeo is designed and engineered to be more “human” compared to other players in the market— a user experience-driven solution that is simple, effortless, and non-intrusive for the daily user to alleviate the stress many employees feel from not having an assigned desk, while at the same time helping optimize and streamline the office environment.
“The office of the future is a smart workplace where employees are ready to return to the office, feel heard, are involved and connected. Organizations are expected to change their office layout to accommodate the new rules of the hybrid workplace. This points to a shift from fixed desks to hot-desking and bookable desks. Smart office technology is needed to support the new processes and we’ve invested heavily in new hardware devices and a SaaS model platform to broaden our product offering and accelerate growth.” Glückman continues.
Key selling points:
- Premium hardware & software solution; Users can interact with Kleeo directly on the device’s interface or via an app. The physical device is designed to create a minimum distraction with easily identifiable desk status via four different status light colors; it has a built-in presence sensor; is easily repairable and recyclable; has low maintenance and a long service plan, and integrates seamlessly with Evoko’s Workplace platform and apps.
- Superior user experience: Users get easy booking options without restrictions with functions such as “focus mode” and “automatic check-in”, upgradeable software with new features for even more flexibility, and peace of mind for workers and employers. Kleeo is easily integrated and a natural part of the users’ workplace routines, the experience can start already outside of the office with the intuitive app.
- Ethical, responsible (anonymous) data analysis; Employers can better understand how their space is being used, which desks are preferred, when are office desks limited, and which days are best for working from home to optimize the office space from both a satisfaction and cost perspective, as this is one of the major costs for many organizations.
In the development of Kleeo, Evoko teamed up with the Swedish product innovation agency, Above, which work with Google, IKEA, and Bang & Olufsen among others.
