Why is this product being introduced at this time to the facility management market?

Facility managers continue to face some uncertainty around planning for the return to the office. Employees want their workspaces refreshed and clean when they return, and ideally that would include new flooring. Because it is likely that office configurations and populations will change as organizations return to the office, using visualization tools combined with expert guidance from Starnet interior contractors will dramatically increase successful outcomes.

How will the flooring visualizer help facility management leaders achieve their goals?

Using visualization, facility professionals can quickly simulate aesthetically transformed spaces to gain stakeholder commitment. Optimized for all devices, the application is useful in hybrid workplaces, adaptive reuse, tenant improvement, and building renovations. The Starnet visualizer supports the return-to-work strategy for every organization and makes associates feel included in the decisions to ensure the productivity, cleanliness, and safety of their workplace. Facility managers working with Starnet can take advantage of office furniture lift systems, access flooring, soft surface, resilient, and hard surface flooring solutions to completely transform occupied buildings and meet the updated needs of associates.
