For immediate release
Haltian’s IoT Platform Enables Tieto to Make World’s Workplaces Empathic
Oulu-based IoT and product development company Haltian and internationally-operating Nordic software and services company Tieto, have agreed a multiannual commercial cooperation concerning Tieto’s Empathic Building service. The smart office market is predicted to double in the next five years, and the shared offering of the two companies provides customers with a faster way of digitising their office facilities.
The aim of the Empathic Building service is to increase the happiness and satisfaction of office staff with respect to their work environments. The core of the service is a browser-based application that helps the person in a multi-room environment find the best facilities for each task. Real-time data from sensors can be imported to the application to show the booking state, temperature, noise level – and even the location of colleagues – within the facilities. The application also provides the user with the opportunity to influence the administration and development of the facilities by supporting interaction between different agents. The administrator can create better work environments by comparing the feedback with the information collected by the sensors.
According to the agreement, Haltian is to provide Tieto’s client facilities with sensor solutions that enable visualisation of, for example, data on the working conditions and the utilisation rate of the Empathic Building service. Setting up Haltian’s sensors has been made particularly straightforward, and they are delivered to the customer pre-connected to the service. The customer thus benefits from easier setup and cost-efficiency. In addition to Finland, Tieto’s Empathic Building service is already in use in Norway and Sweden. The companies will now aim at expanding together in international markets.
Haltian Oy’s Thingsee system facilitates rapid smartening of facilities. Haltian is developing a whole family of sensor devices and routers which can accommodate, for example, the collection of occupation data, utilisation rate data and conditions data from Tieto’s client facilities. Haltian’s Thingsee device management services facilitate transferring the data to Tieto’s Empathic Building system. Haltian maintains Tieto’s device base and is thus responsible for the smoothness of service around the world.
