Envoy Unveils Hot-Desk Reservation System
Workplace management software company Envoy this week released Envoy Desks, a desk reservation system for offices with hot desking setups. When employees are coming into the office, they can book a seat for the day using the Desks phone app, Envoy said. Meanwhile, workplace planners can use analytics from Desks to optimize their space and determine which desks and conference rooms require sanitization.
