Asure Software (Nasdaq: ASUR), a leading provider of workplace management software solutions, today announced that its AsureSpace Workspace Manager solution helped Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), a global organisation that fights poverty through volunteers, to significantly reduce its real estate footprint and save £400,000 annually as a result.
“VSO’s workspace reduction and corresponding real estate savings are the result of a strategically planned hotdesking program using the AsureSpace Workspace Manager solution, which enabled the organisation to optimise its new office space,” explained Nigel Clarke, Vice President & General Manager, EMEA & APAC.
VSO previously offered hotdesking on an informal basis in its former office, which had many more desks, but they needed a formal scheduling system to ensure its staff could continue to operate in a much smaller space. Now, its 320 employees operate in a space with 180 desks, using accessible and user-friendly workspace management tools to locate and reserve workspaces when they are at the office.
VSO selected AsureSpace Workspace Manager for its ease of use, minimal training requirements, accessibility via any web browser or smartphone, and integration with Microsoft Outlook, as well as its integration with AsureSpace Kiosks onsite for staff who need to find ad hoc space on-site.
“It’s useful to have a solution that is so visual when trying to maximise your time in the office,” said Amaraghosha Carter, VSO head of international information technology. “Employees can see where others are sitting and select to sit near teammates in order to work together on projects when they are in the office. We saved over £400,000 annually and we can put that money back into our programs, which is exactly what our donors want to hear.”

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Cybersecurity is a critical component of software development in many industries including medical devices. However, code is not always written to be robust or secure from the unknown or the unexpected. This gap can make medical devices susceptible to cybersecurity attacks ranging from compromised personal health information to life-sustaining treatment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Clark Fortney, Software Engineer at Battelle, will discuss how programming oversight using key methods can incre...

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyor belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are ...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
