The goal is to create a productive and efficient working environment. With this in mind, Arvato Financial Solutions wants to drive the digital transformation of its locations forward and enable its employees to work flexibly in the future. But how? Through the Comfy intelligent workplace platform, which allows employees to plan their working day at the office according to their specific needs. Comfy will be integrated into 32 locations across 15 countries by the end of 2022. This will revolutionize office working life for Arvato’s 5,000 employees across 63,000 qm of office space.

The implementation of the Comfy platform and app supports Arvato's flexible working model by creating a digital workplace environment. Working from different locations and efficient work scheduling is ensured not only during the pandemic. In particular, the transparency and insight into the available spatial capacities allows the employee to find and select the appropriate workspace for her/his task. Employees can also use the Comfy app to view office schedules, find disinfection stations, or make requests for cleaning and maintenance. Using the opt-in feature, employees decide whether to share their location and status, so colleagues can find each other in the office and see their availability based on status information. The Comfy platform also offers a data analytics dashboard that provides insight into overall workstation and meeting room usage. This allows data-based decisions to be made regarding space utilization and capacity utilization.
