Students go through lots of consumables, like paper, markers, foamcor and batteries in a studio space. Administrative staff is often not located in the same space, so they are unaware of when these items are running low. Refills solves this problem by creating a home base for these items, which monitors how much remains. As items are removed there is an active monitor and an email is sent to the administration to let know when materials reach low levels, so more can be ordered.

It is becoming more and more common for studios to have shared spaces that are not permanently controlled by any one person or group. This can make having a meeting or a place to work unexpectedly difficult, because a student doesn’t know before they arrive if space is available and formal scheduling of spaces is rarely done. Occupancy addresses this issue by making the current as well as historic occupancy level of a space known along with the noise level.
