Spica is a specialist IoT Solutions Provider that uses a combination of technical assets, hardware (sensor devices), software components, and IoT integration expertise to help businesses capitalize on the opportunity that the Internet of Things represents.
Businesses are increasingly recognizing the link between the working environment and human capital, and ascribing value to a positive employee experience.
Spica – We Make Work a Better Place
As Founders in the business, we recognised the disconnect between the PropTech Marketing Hype around IoT & Smart Buildings, and the lack of tangible examples of real-world success stories. Even now, 3 years on, many analysts still focus on pilot studies in newly built office spaces like the Edge, Amsterdam, whereas the reality is that 90%+ of Corporate Real Estate is in legacy buildings with a vast spectrum of legacy systems. Additionally, the operational running of a building including energy costs amount to under 10% of total spend, with 90% costs typically attributed to staff – it is the employee experience therefore where FM technology innovation should primarily be focused on.
Proptech IoT is not about sensors, platforms or networks, rather an integration-led approach to combining multiple building data sets, presented via intuitive user-centric interfaces; to provide powerful insight for the benefit of Real Estate owners, service Providers, Commercial Occupiers and Building Users
At Spica, our Vision is to become a global market leader in Workplace Management Technology, recognised as benefiting the health, wellbeing and productivity of building users.
