Targomo’s OfficeFinder tool is now available to customers of ImmoScout24 Gewerbe (ImmoScout24 Commercial Property). With the new OfficeFinder tool, Germany’s leading real estate portal ImmoScout24 and location intelligence specialist Targomo offer a technical solution that enables employers to take into account employees’ commute times when searching for a new office location. This makes it easy to find the “most commuter-friendly” office.
The tool is now available during a test phase on the commercial property portal of ImmoScout24.
Targomo uses artificial intelligence and highly developed routing technologies to analyze an office location’s reachability. Within seconds, the tool calculates the commute times to the office for all specified employee addresses and determines whether a car, public transport, bicycle or on foot is the quickest way to reach the destination. On a map, employers can see which areas are best reachable for their employees. After they have selected a potential office location, the tool calculates the average commute time for the workforce. In addition, OfficeFinder shows for each employee on an interactive map which transportation mode is the fastest to reach the office.
“Length and duration of the commute to work impact quality of life and work-life balance. Thanks to OfficeFinder, employers looking for a new office at ImmoScout24 Commercial Property can now take this into account, and find out how commute times and distances change for employees with just a few clicks”, explains Aleksandra Petseva, Head of Product Innovation at ImmoScout24. “By integrating this innovative and data-driven tool, we are helping our users to make better and more informed decisions, thus making office selection easier”.
Patrick Schönemann, Targomo’s CEO, is convinced that OfficeFinder can improve quality of life: “More than 22 million employees in Germany need 30 to 60 minutes to get to work. Almost 5 million need more than one hour. We want to do our part to shorten these commute times. If we succeed in reducing the figures by only 5 or 10 percent, we would have more time overall that we could use at work, with our loved ones or for our hobbies.” *
