OpenBlue Location Manager

Uncover Space Utilization, Safety and Security Opportunities

Johnson Controls is at the forefront of responding in unique and innovative ways to help communities re-open amidst the challenges of COVID-19. Our goal is to deliver technology solutions that help keep people safe and healthy, and ensure buildings are prepared to welcome back employees, visitors, and customers. Location Manager helps keep mission critical workplaces running smoothly by minimizing the business impact should an employee test positive. For non-mission critical workplaces, Location Manager assists facilities for the reopening of buildings and their agile adaptation to the new ways of working that will emerge post COVID-19.

Workplace
Location Manager provides strategic indoor location insights in relation to people, space, and equipment
As people return to work, businesses can use Location Manager to make data-driven, people-focused, real-time decisions on spaces and equipment. Each component of the Location Manager solution works from a mobile app to power dashboards so businesses can safely re-enter and reoccupy the workplace.

Location Manager can help you understand occupancy ebbs and flows by day, week and month, and explore opportunities to smooth spikes in demands and eliminate areas of over utilization.

It can also provide insights on which teams, groups or functions are using which spaces to help make informed decisions regarding the space amount, type and layout to best suit the needs of employees, and the business.

This enables businesses to move from a waterfall model of space design/redesign to an agile model that continuously adapts to how the space is used, by making small frequent changes with the solution continuously monitoring the effects of the changes.
Location Manager also provides automated social distancing monitoring to help employees achieve best practice in social distancing and help minimize the impact of any contact tracing reports. It enables compliance management through the provision of critical dashboards and reports, detailing how well social distancing is being practiced.

Scenario Planning Reports can also assist Crisis Management Teams to pro-actively monitor and respond to an event.

Location Manager can help you quickly find critical items, eliminate time spent walking around to find carts, pipettes and other commonly used items with a real-time view of these mobile assets.

You can optimize equipment inventory using the data to understand which equipment you need more of and which you have too much of.

The application runs on a cloud based software platform that collects real-time data from a wide range of plug and play sensors with wire-free installation including: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) badges and BLE badges with duress support; BLE transceivers; BLE asset tracking tags, temperature and vibration sensors.

Spotlight: Protecting People & Places

The health and safety of all who enter the workplace is our number one priority. With that priority in mind, Johnson Controls has developed technologies that improve behaviors and manage compliance to give building owners and occupants peace of mind.

Spotlight: Intelligent Laboratories

Mission critical laboratory environments require the best, most efficient facilities available. When scientists can work comfortably and productively, they produce life-changing health solutions. And as with any mission critical environment, labs are expensive to build, equip, maintain and secure. In fact, they are the second most expensive commercial space to manage, not including the cost of equipment, which typically exceeds millions of dollars per lab. As more organizations move toward the development of ‘smart labs’ with a shared-space model, there’s even greater potential for over-utilization of equipment or inefficient allocation of space. Every hour that a scientist waits for equipment is time that can be devoted to science. Every dollar saved on infrastructure is a dollar that can be redirected to life-saving research. With Intelligent Laboratories, you can make more time for science.
