Global rollout of occupancy management system


Space, capacity and occupancy managed worldwide


UBS Group

UBS, headquartered in Zurich and Basel, is a global financial institution serving private, corporate and institutional clients. UBS is present in all the world's major financial centers. 

UBS occupies 1.8 million sqm² of office space in 4 major regions: North-East Europe, South-West Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific.


Faster reorganizations and better working conditions

With an annual occupancy cost in excess of €1 billion, accelerating reorganizations and the need to provide the best working conditions for its employees, the Corporate Real Estate & Administrative Services (CREAS) division needed relevant and reliable indicators to accomplish its real estate policy.

As 60% of real estate costs are directly correlated with sqm² leased or occupied, these indicators focus on leased surface areas, capacity and occupancy of workspaces worldwide. The reliability of these indicators requires rigorous management of space allocation processes.
