When location meets employee – Locatee

Locatee Team

Our Mission

We redefine the place where employees spend most of their days – the office building

While the way how employees work has changed, office buildings have remained largely unchanged. It is time for a change. At Locatee, we believe that connecting employees with their office buildings through technology enables organisations to strive. Our goal is thus to empower organisations to create more engaging and collaborative work environments while significantly reducing cost for space, energy and other resources. Thanks to our platform smart and occupant-oriented office buildings become a reality – one square meter at a time.
