Asure Software Helps National Health Service Greater Glasgow and Clyde Successfully Implement and Expand a Hot Desking Program for Agile Workers
April 22, 2014
AUSTIN, Texas & STAINES, England, Apr 22, 2014 — Asure Software a leading provider of workplace management software solutions, today announced that its AsureSpace Workspace Manager solution helped National Health Service Greater Glasgow and Clyde to implement a hot desking program that saves on leasing costs and supports workforce agility.
Based in Glasgow, Scotland, NHSGGC is the largest health board in the United Kingdom, providing health care to more than 1.2 million people. The organization’s overall objective in deploying a workplace scheduling software system was to convert NHSGGC traditional workspaces into a hot desk system that accommodated employees’ work demands and their desire to be more agile. Workspace Manager was first piloted with a small group within the organization and then rolled out to other facilities.
“More than 250 NHSGGC agile working staff currently use Workspace Manager to reserve workspace in the locations where they need to conduct daily business, and the organization will soon upgrade and expand software to serve its newest building project, a hospital that will feature 130 hot desk locations,” explained Nigel Clarke, Vice President & General Manager, EMEA & APAC. “Hot desking is a growing trend in the UK because it helps organizations accommodate agile employees and save money on leased space.”
“Asure’s account management team has been very helpful as we deployed the Workspace Manager and our employees were quick to adopt the new solution,” said Brian Gracie, IT support manager at NHSGGC. “A key measurement for success is that our employees actually use the system. The roll-out was a success, employees find the software easy to use, and it has become our defacto resource scheduling system for employees.”
