Brilliant workplace decisions

Know how to use your space with Nimway



What is Nimway?

A workplace that thrives. Nimway is a smart office solution that lets everyone make the most of their workplace. Employees can control their day and achieve their best work—without the chores and barriers of a traditional office. At the same time, companies gain valuable insights about their spaces to guide data-driven facility optimization and resource allocation


It’s time to reimagine the office. Yesterday’s office was the only place to work. But today’s new hybrid workforces introduce unique demands. Attendance fluctuates. Some areas are empty, others packed. Friction and frustration fill the hallways as employees compete for spaces and make compromises. It can feel impossible to make the workplace work for everyone.



Nimway for employees

Control your day at the office. Imagine an office where you can trust that you’ll find a suitable workspace. Not only that, but where you can book the workspaces and meeting rooms you need with the press of a button—in advance or on the spot. You can even identify which colleagues will be in the office, and where they are. There are no chores and no compromises. Your day goes smoothly. That’s a Nimway workplace.


Key features for employees:

This unique Nimway feature ensures that if nobody shows up to a booked room within a given period of time, the person who booked the room will receive a notification to release it for others to use



Nimway for facility managers

Nimway delivers valuable insights about occupancy and booking. Using the Nimway dashboard, a facility manager can begin to understand how their space is actually used, minute-by-minute. And that’s no exaggeration. Unlike many office sensors, Nimway delivers instant occupancy data that is truly real-time.

These insights are game-changing for facilities struggling to optimize their resources. With Nimway, you’ll understand how much office area, how many rooms and the types of workspaces your office needs. Using Nimway analytics, you can lower operational costs and create a workplace suited for in-house working styles — at the same time.


Transformative office analytics


Low- and high-traffic 

Reveal imbalances in work areas with realtime occupancy insights from Nimway. Then, finetune your layouts to match realworld needs. Are certain collaboration areas overcrowded? Or individual focus rooms eternally empty? Over time, create an office where every area is worth the space. 


Peaks and valleys 

Are there certain days or times of day that are especially popular? What are the average occupancy levels? Nimway analytics provides data to identify daily and weekly behavioral patterns. What’s more, thanks to booking data, you’ll understand how your employees want to use the office.


True utilization 

A booked room isn’t always in use. Maybe the meeting ended early. Or they never showed up at all. That’s why occupancy sensors matter. And with Nimway analytics, you’ll see “Rooms booked” versus “Rooms used” — letting you optimize your office with a data-driven course of action.

Technology overview

As a suite of smart office technologies, Nimway can be adapted to any workplace — depending on your challenges with occupancy, resource allocation, collaboration or work experience. The solution is powered by Sony’s patented world-class indoor positioning technology, and state-of-the-art wireless sensors that provide true real-time occupancy data.


Why Sony?

Sony first developed Nimway to support employees at the large Sony campus in Sweden. It didn’t take long to realize most companies had equally difficult workplaces. So, in 2016, we launched Nimway as a global commercial solution. Nimway is completely designed and owned by Sony. Our expertise with mobile and sensing technology — combined with our passion for creating great user experiences — are what power Nimway and benefit offices all around the world.
