Axiomatic Technology

Axiomatic technology


We strive to help universities make more informed and effective space planning decisions. We are able to provide them with more meaningful data on existing space use, quickly identifying wasted space and under performing rooms. This results in space planning professionals being able to amend their plan to allocate university space resources more effectively, with the potential to reduce energy consumption. Flexibility and agility are key when planning. We give our users the tools they need to effectively adapt and coordinate the wider university strategy – positively impacting both student and staff experience.
