Even before the COVID crisis, Grant Thornton was already convinced by the importance of flexible ways of working and believed in the power of smarter offices and digitalization. With that ambition, they decided to partner up with Colliers, a real estate consulting firm. Colliers helped them take the leap quickly to transform their offices in Brussels and then subsequently in Gent and Antwerp. In all these locations, digitalization was at the heart of the services to embed the hybrid work and well-being at work.
More specifically in the location of Antwerp, Grant Thornton realized there would be pressure on the parking lot due to the limited amount of spaces available in their new building. An issue that they did not have in their previous office location.
Together with Colliers — one of the trusted real estate partners in the Izix network — Grant Thornton decided to implement a smart parking solution to manage their limited parking spaces. This would ensure a smooth and joyful parking experience for employees and visitors.
The solution was in line with Grant Thornton’s digitalization mindset and supported their smart office transformation.
There was a quick and widespread adoption from the employees, who became autonomous in planning and accessing the office parking
“Sometimes the commercial side is very convincing, but the operational side, the implementation, isn't always that evident, and that's where Izix really stood out. More than being reactive, the team was very proactive in making sure everything was working well.”
“After a selection of potential partners for this parking management system for our customer Grant Thornton, Izix stood out. In addition to the professional commercial explanation, everything was also observed during the implementation, and Izix experts helped to find solutions.”
