There were valuable practical lessons such as training the chatbot "Charlotte" on how people speak and overcoming privacy issues when the chatbot had to look up employees’ Outlook to analyze their room booking habits.
The Interact Office APIs and secure cloud-based system enabled quick sharing of data and integrated applications to spruce up the deployment. These sensors worked to ensure that meeting room usage was optimal and data was shared with the chatbot to communicate with all users. The occupants of the space were able to control and interact with the lighting infrastructure from the comfort of their phones.
Getronics trained the chatbot to communicate with the lighting and meeting room management systems to deliver an outstanding UI for users. Users can now easily communicate with the building infrastructure using any standard messaging application on their smartphones, all this with complete security and authentication.
Having implemented the technology as an end-user, it allows Beca to better advise their clients during their own smart buildings journey. They have since designed smart lighting solutions in more than 50,000m2 of commercial space.
