Basking Automation

Know how your workplace is being used is a workplace occupancy analytics platform, helping corporate real estate managers and landlords get a granular understanding of how their spaces are being used.

Knowing that each office and each workforce is unique, we equip real estate executives with the data they need to optimize their leases, improve how office spaces are designed and ultimately increase their workforces’ productivity and satisfaction.

We leverage existing WiFi infrastructure and our proprietary machine learning algorithms to provide our customers with insights into the real-time occupancy and space utilization across their portfolio. Our web-based app is easy to use, fast to deploy across portfolios, and privacy-compliant.

Basking’s customers include Linux Foundation, Colliers International and NAI Apollo. Our solution is currently deployed in the office spaces across the US and Europe, including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Toronto, London, Madrid, Frankfurt, and Berlin.

Basking has been recognized as a top software provider of the year by German Property Association, winning the ZIA Office Awards 2019.

Since March 11, 2019, is the official partner of Colliers International. As partners, Basking and Colliers’ experts in workplace solutions and occupier services are helping clients to better plan staff allocation, lease handling and portfolio strategy based on real-time occupancy analytics.

Customer Results


The Challenge: Colliers International’s HQ in London is a 57,000 sq. ft large office space. In order to cope with the planned headcount growth in this location, management considered renting additional office space in adjacent buildings. The Results: Basking has identified several optimization opportunities, including the potential for 40 to 140 more people to be allocated in the existing office. This will provide up to to €984,000 per year in costs avoidance.
