Creating a Cloud-Native Asset Management Platform for 4Site

About 4Site

4SITE, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CORT Business Services (a Berkshire Hathaway Company), provides an analytics platform using wireless sensor technology that allows businesses to monitor and maximize their workspace utilization. 

The 4SITE platform provides real-time and aggregated information on the utilization of offices, desks, conference rooms, and even workstations using data gathered by wireless sensors deployed on assets in a workspace. 

These insights allow businesses to make informed decisions to create and manage a safe, effective, and efficient workplace.

The Challenge

Ibexlabs was tasked with developing a new, upgraded version of the 4SITE application, V4.0 which would be more organized, less bug-prone, and faster by creating new APIs, and deploying the complete application infrastructure in AWS. 

The Ibexlabs Solution

Ibexlabs used the AWS Well-Architected Framework to build a secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure for 4Site.

AWS Services used:

  • Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC): To enable operational scalability and flexibility. 
  • AWS Management Console: To set up and validate a virtual network with a focus on resource placement and security. 
  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk: To automate deployment, capacity provisioning, and load balancing, and monitor the health of applications.
  • AWS Lambda: To make the core application process independent from the asynchronous processes, for enhancing scalability and optimizing processing time.
  • Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS): To create a highly available, scalable, and secure database for applications.

Third Party Solutions used:

OneLogin: To provide Single Sign-On (SSO) access to the AWS account. 


With the new and revamped version of the application, 4Site is able to generate usage reports with greater ease and efficiency. 

Some of the other benefits include:

  • The ability to capture and process the large volume of data from a typical deployment of thousands of sensors, in as close to real-time as possible.
  • The ability to support different types of assets and building configurations, without excessive customization.
  • The ability for a business to quickly and easily set up and run the 4SITE platform.
  • The ability to provide secure, robust and performant operations.
