Humanscale and Tome Partner to Redefine Intelligent Office
Ergonomics Leader And Connectivity Software Pioneers Team Up To Create The Ultimate Active Workspace Designed To Get People Out Of Their Seats
LAS VEGAS – Humanscale, the leader in workplace ergonomics, today unveiled OfficeIQ™ powered by Tome, a connected workspace software solution that incorporates intelligence into work tools such as height adjustable tables, seating and other ergonomic products so information can be gathered about their usage at an individual and organizational level.
For example, with height adjustable workstations, OfficeIQ combines the use of integrated sensors and software to monitor workplace activity, such as sitting, standing or time spent away from one’s desk. Measuring information such as caloric expenditure, OfficeIQ provides users real-time feedback on their activity and pairs with third-party personal fitness apps across multiple platforms and devices.
“Humanscale has a history of making work tools more intelligent to create a healthier and more productive work place,” Humanscale Founder and CEO Robert King said. “This is the logical next step in that evolution.”
OfficeIQ was developed in partnership with Detroit-based tech startup Tome, Inc. Tome is the second technology startup founded by Jake Sigal and Massimo Baldini and specializes in the integration of software applications and hardware products, focusing on health and wellness. Sigal and Baldini sold their first startup, Livio, an in-vehicle connectivity protocol linking software apps to factory and OEM hardware systems, to Ford Motor Company in 2013.
“For us, partnering with Humanscale, the leader in office ergonomics, is an incredible opportunity. We know that if you want to get people moving at work, you start by getting them to stand up,” Tome CEO Jake Sigal said. “OfficeIQ will make movement an integral part of every workday for users,” he adds.
Humanscale OfficeIQ powered by Tome will be on display during the 2015 International CES at Booth 72910 in the CES Tech West hall at the Sands Expo at Venetian/Palazzo. Appointments are also available and can be scheduled by request. Visit www.humanscale.com/CES for more information.
A passion for connecting hardware products to software applications led Jake Sigal and Massimo Baldini to establish Tome, Inc. in April 2014. Founded in metro Detroit, the company develops connectivity products to keep people mobile and active, and creates value as a focused niche within the larger Internet of Things movement. Tome is a member of the StartUp Health accelerator, based in New York City. Sigal and Baldini sold their previous startup, Livio, to Ford Motor Company in 2013.
