Ahrend Smart Working App

A new approach to office-sharing

Activity Based Working requires a different perspective on furnishing. This means the lay-out enhances the productivity and creativity of your organisation. The result is a new approach to office-sharing.

The Smart Working App helps to navigate the user around the workplace. It innovatively solves issues such as ‘where is my colleague?’ and ‘which workstation is free?’. The App is available in the following languages: German, French, Dutch and English.
