    More students, increased capacity, same space

    Lone Rooftop

    An increase in student registration left Wageningen University scrambling for classrooms. Building intelligence firm Lone Rooftop showed them how to optimize existing space with real-time occupancy data.

    Case study

    Challenge

    • Rapid increase in student registration with limited space to accommodate them
    • No planned investments in building or leasing new education buildings; smarter ways of using available space needed
    • Underutilized classrooms and no-shows (classrooms reserved, but not used), but no way to support this with real-time data; no way to make improvements using data-driven decisions

    Solution

    • Collaborate with Axians, a Cisco partner, and Scientia, a leader in timetabling for higher education
    • Provide classroom occupancy data, and combine that with timetabling software, to begin the Classroom Occupancy System (CLOCKS) application
    • Install Cisco networking, wireless, and location solutions
    • Implement Lone Rooftop's Position Intelligence Engine (PIE), a platform that calculates the position of people inside buildings primarily based on the existing Wi-Fi network
    • Provide easy access to data to schedule classes efficiently and increase education capacity

    Results

    • Full, accurate 24-hour insight into occupancy of classes
    • 15 percent more capacity available to accommodate growing number of students, with no additional investments in real estate
    • No-shows at an all-time low of around 3 to 5 percent, with an industry average of more than 20 percent
    • Implementations of PIE and CLOCKS completed or in process in more than half of the universities in the Netherlands
