that can transform the workplace into a highly efficient, productive
environment that many corporations envision.
To assist in this transformation, we have published the Connected and Efficient
Building eBook, which provides guidance and best practices on implementing
innovative technologies in the workplace.
The ebook is available free of charge and contains insights

talk specifically about sections of the ebook.
