Sirqul and Catalyst Workplace Activation Reveal the Future of Smart Offices
This partnership will disrupt the “traditional” office furniture conversation by examining the intersection of people, place, and technology. We realize it is increasingly evident that the design of spaces is an enabler to meaningful interactions between people and fosters a sense of community and culture by taking on the challenges of designing for a more productive, collaborative, and inspiring workplace, leveraging technology to process data on how people work, communicate and engage with one another.
Sirqul, IncSirqul provides an IoT EaaS (Engagement as a Service) Platform with 75 Services, 400 APIs, 3 distinct IoT hardware product offerings, over 30 customizable native application templates. Headquartered in Seattle, WA, Sirqul is led by Robert Frederick, one of the original technical founders of Amazon's first forays into Secure Mobile Commerce (Amazon Anywhere) and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Sirqul enables the rapid conceptualization, development, deployment, and monetization of branded, connected IoT applications. Built upon decades of thought to create a connected world, Sirqul removes the complexity associated with scalable, enterprise quality software and enables the rapid deployment of interoperable IoT ecosystems based upon plug-and-play APIs, tool kits, and starter projects. Edysen, Sirqul's hardware Smart Mesh solution is capable of identifying the exact location of wifi, bluetooth, BLE, and other RF enabled devices within a minimum 80 foot diameter with an accuracy of 2 feet.

This collaborative partnership allows us to develop high impact integrated solutions for the workplace while improving employee productivity and bottom-line revenue for businesses. Inspired to transform the workplace, we look forward to combining people, place and technology to exceed the expectations and needs of business today and in the future. Sirqul’s on-premise and cloud solutions will enable smart devices to not only anonymously track intent, movement, dwell times, space utilization, and interactions, but also act by adjusting temperatures, reserving conference rooms, ordering food, making recommendations, providing digital concierge services, checking-in guests, and more. In short, we need to design spaces that make the physical work environment intelligent and adaptable to company workflows. In doing so, we will create a future where workplaces allow us to be more productive, innovative, and happy.

Indoor Positioning SystemsAn indoor positioning system (IPS) is a network of devices used to locate people or objects where GPS and other satellite technologies lack precision or fail entirely, such as inside multistory buildings, airports, parking garages, and underground locations. A large variety of techniques and devices are used to provide indoor positioning ranging from reconfigured devices already deployed such as smartphones, WiFi and Bluetooth antennas, digital cameras, and clocks; to purpose built installations with relays and beacons strategically placed throughout a defined space. IPS has broad applications in commercial, military, retail, and inventory tracking industries. There are several commercial systems on the market, but no standards for an IPS system. Instead each installation is tailored to spatial dimensions, building materials, accuracy needs, and budget constraints. Lights, radio waves, magnetic fields, acoustic signals, and behavioral analytics are all used in IPS networks. Indoor positioning systems use different technologies, including distance measurement to nearby anchor nodes (nodes with known fixed positions, e.g. WiFi / LiFi access points, Bluetooth beacons or Ultra-Wideband beacons), magnetic positioning, and dead reckoning. They either actively locate mobile devices and tags or provide ambient location or environmental context for devices.Supply Chain VisibilitySupply chain visibility solutions provide visibility into the movement of raw materials, components, and finished goods from suppliers to manufacturers to the final buyer. Solutions are typically built on a centralized cloud-based platform that integrates data from multiple systems, including those those of partners. Technologies such as smart sensors, RFID, and digital ledger protocols can enable additional functionality. For example, digital ledger technology can keep logs of all transactions occurring on the network in a secure way, while providing supply chain partners with access to specific data. Visibility solutions can enhance the efficiency and transparency of supply chains, record the quantity and transfer of products as they change hands between supply chain nodes, track change orders and buy orders, process shipment notifications, manage trade documents and receipts, link physical products to bar codes, and share information about processing or manufacturing processes with suppliers, logistics providers, and customers.
