reelyActive Releases Guide to Data-Driven Workplace Reopening

Open Internet of Things leader releases white paper outlining a novel occupancy-data-based approach for a progressive return to the workplace, and the future beyond.

Montréal, Canada — May 13th, 2021.   Today, award-winning Internet of Things technologies innovator reelyActive released a white paper to assist organisations with the progressive reopening of their workplaces by using objective occupancy data to continuously adapt to ever-changing realities while prioritising employee safety and well-being.

With vaccination campaigns well advanced in Canada and around the world, executives, managers and human resources professionals are confronted with the challenges and uncertainties of a post-pandemic return to the workplace. For many, only one thing is clear: there is no going back to the way things were.

"The role and relevance of the workplace has been seriously challenged in light of the pandemic" said Jeffrey Dungen, co-founder and CEO of reelyActive, "and what we find is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for organisations to embrace continuous change, ensuring that the workplace best serves its workers in the execution of their mission."

The white paper, entitled "Towards The Future Of Work," provides clear and practical guidelines for organisations of any size to gather and visualise ambient occupancy data to make routine, incremental, informed decisions on how to adapt the workplace and policies to the benefit of all, and, perhaps most importantly, to receive objective feedback on the impact of these decisions.

Ambient data is an objective and readily available source of information found in abundance in the physical spaces in which we live, work and play. Ambient data is generated by the connected devices all around us, including the smart devices in our pockets and on our wrists, and hence can be interpreted as an objective indicator of workplace occupancy. Anonymous by default, this data source has been successfully put to work by organisations across industries for several years, and will continue to prove itself an indispensable ally in the workplace.

The white paper is available for download from reelyActive's website (, in both English and French.

reelyActive was founded in Montréal in 2012 with a goal to create the first simple and accessible cloud-based active RFID systems. Today we enable organisations to transform the abundance of wireless data in their physical spaces into an inexhaustible source of value for their business. The exponential growth of wireless devices of all kinds represents a wealth of ambient data, and reelyActive is the only company to allow any participant to take purposeful action from the full extent of the data in their space, because only we are focused on building communities of ambient data expertise.
