A Networking app for new hires
A networking feature
The people-centered concept is proposed as an embedded feature in Mapiq Now, Mapiq’s workplace productivity app.
Users complete their profile to allow the system to identify colleagues with matching interests.
The system suggests occasions to meet colleagues with matching interests, in an innovative calendar view.

How can well-being at work be effectively enhanced with smart-building technologies?
Through literature review and contextmapping workshops, I understood that relationships in the workplace have a great influence on well-being.
Through company research and ideation, I identified opportunities for Mapiq’s technology to strengthen relationships in the workplace.
Design & Evaluation
Through paper prototyping and wireframing, I designed a social networking feature for Mapiq’s mobile app.
Integrating the design with mapiq
Mapiq's vision is to be the go-to resource for smart-office workers to get the most out of their workplace. Correspondingly, Mapiq has developed a user-friendly smartphone app Mapiq Now. The app gives office workers a central place to complete a range of tasks, including booking conference rooms, controlling lights, and finding colleagues. Mapiq Now holds great potential to be even more useful for office workers, so I designed my concept as a feature within the application.
