Desk Sharing System for Microsoft 365

Office too small or too big?

The last years reshaped companies in many ways but one of the fundamental changes in the way companies operate has to be the widespread adoption of hybrid work models. Due to the considerably higher ratio of work from home days, companies often employ more people than can physically fit into their office spaces or they simply do not need the whole capacity of the rented office spaces.

In both cases there is a fundamental need for a system, which will allow employees to make sure, that they have a place to work on the day they plan to go to the office. As part of the Microsoft 365 ecosystem, arboo will manage your flexible desk strategy, even if your company might be distributed across multiple locations.
