Understanding the Broader Context in the Industry

The world of facility management continues to change rapidly in the wake of COVID-19, with organizations continuing to explore hybrid work models and ways to enhance their facilities with digital tools. In this new context, we’re seeing facilities that are more interconnected, flexible and smart than ever before – and the right tools will be needed to manage these intelligent physical spaces.  

Today, this translates to tools and vendors that offer:  

  • Comprehensive, actionable data about facility operations, occupant behavior and asset performance
  • IoT tools like building systems integrations, digital models and predictive analytics
  • A range of software features like preventive maintenance tools, spare parts inventory, vendor management, work scheduling, sanitation and reporting features
  • Additional workplace management functionalities like space management, service delivery, visitor management and capital planning
