NORTHAMPTON, UK (1st July 2019)

True Occupancy has engaged the consultancy services of Simon Carter of Anticus Consulting. Simon will work with the True Occupancy team to bring their occupancy analytics solution for smart buildings to the rapidly growing UK and US markets.

As the former Head of Corporate Property at National Grid, Simon was the mastermind and driving force behind their Smart Work Space initiative. Thinking ahead of his time, Simon wanted a solution that could accurately measure building occupancy and enable National Grid to improve their building utilisation, make operational efficiencies and improve employee productivity and collaboration. 

Unable to find an existing solution to meet these requirements, Simon approached Irisys, a world leader in retail people counting technology. Using anonymous data from their passive and unobtrusive sensors, Irisys developed an occupancy analytics solution that would later become known as True Occupancy.
