Managing Workplace Data Across the Americas

Kraft Foods
Integrated Workplace Management System

Chicago, Illinois, USA

HOK’s space management team played a key role in implementing an integrated workplace management system (IWMS) to help maximize the efficiency of the Kraft Foods real estate portfolio across North America.

In 2012, Kraft split its organization into two companies: Kraft Heinz Company and Mondelēz International. Kraft selected HOK to manage the transition of its space and occupancy data into two separate IWMS solutions for data collection and reporting for both companies.

HOK’s team led a comprehensive technology needs assessment and vendor selection for Kraft. We supported the implementation of the IWMS solutions for both organizations and continue to provide ongoing system administration, training, data and drawing support.

This project equipped both companies with accurate space and occupancy data, enabling them to make more effective real estate decisions.
