Support flexible work schedules

Higher Education has long been considered among the more traditional workplaces, where flexibility would be hard to obtain. But as flexible working is overtaking salary as the most desired workplace benefit, more and more colleges and universities are looking into agile work planning strategies. The most successful of them turn into technology that can support new scheduling processes, enhance collaboration and cater to the needs of a hybrid workforce.

Desk and classroom booking

Simplify hot desk and classroom scheduling with a powerful booking system featuring flexible seating strategies, an interactive floor map, and a real-time availability overview.

Maximize the use of campus resources and facilities

Classroom utilization rates at universities were low before the pandemic but it made them drop even more. Today, 30%-60% of the average campus space is underutilized.

An excess of space leaves Higher Ed institutions with enormous bills for utilities as well as non-essential cleaning and maintenance services. Even so, when it comes to space usage, many colleges and universities still count on guesswork instead of hard data. Meanwhile, with YAROOMS, you can dive into actionable space utilization insights, take advantage of rightsizing opportunities and commit to a smaller, more sustainable space.

Our answer is simple - digital workplace technology. It enables campuses to remain the hot spots for collaboration and networking even with a new hybrid workplace mindset and working habits. Facilitate the interaction that is essential for positive employee experience and productivity.

YAROOMS in action: A single room booking hub for the
Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Columbia University

Needless to say, they weren't efficient, and the lack of a common approach to space management often led to overlapping meetings.
Aligning booking activities via calls or emails turned out to be time consuming and difficult to track.
