Facilities Optimization Management: Connecting Facility Performance Data With Real Estate Investment Strategy

Over the last 15 years a wide range of software vendors have pitched point solutions to building operators, heads of engineering and facilities directors. These value propositions have gained some traction but haven’t crossed the chasm of technology innovation due to a lack of widespread adoption. In the last 6 months, multiple technology vendors have converged on a shared vision for improving the financial performance of real estate portfolios by connecting investment strategies with multiple metrics for facility performance. At Verdantix, we refer to this as Facilities Optimization Management. This webinar explores how functionality from energy software, computerized maintenance and management software, integrated workplace management systems and real estate management software will evolve into end-to-end platforms that offer a more compelling value proposition than today’s many point solutions.

Historically, software vendors have designed their platforms for use exclusively by building operators and facility managers. But the recent growth of smartphone use and the proliferation of equipment connected to the Internet of Things have created new opportunities to engage everyday users of buildings.

The market for occupant-facing mobile apps is still in its infancy with multiple firms, from global technology firms to specialist providers, launching new products. While they all focus on driving engagement, improving productivity and improving tenant’s experiences the solutions on the market are still very different. This webinar will draw on the latest Verdantix research and insights gathered through briefings with senior executives to evaluate the value proposition of the latest building mobile app product innovations covering solutions from vendors such as ARCHIBUS, Comfy, FM:Systems, Honeywell, iOFFICE, Mapiq, Planon, Schneider Electric, SmartSpace Software, Sony, Tishman Speyer and Trimble. It will provide insight into key questions such as: Are these solutions a valuable investment and not just ‘nice to have’ for building operators? Can mobile apps drive value without leveraging the Internet of Things? How can landlords drive greater value for their tenants supporting yields? What obstacles do vendors need to overcome to ensure their product has traction in the busy world of real estate software?

Heads of real estate, facility managers, building operators, real estate asset managers, and technology vendors should attend this webinar to understand how to plan for the future to get value from occupant-facing mobile apps.

Real estate, energy and facility optimization software solutions are being evaluated for purchase by 43% of the real estate executives in the Verdantix global survey.

How can real estate executives source the information they need to make informed decisions regarding which real estate, energy and facility optimization solution is most appropriate for their building portfolio?

This webinar will draw on the latest Verdantix research and insights gathered through briefings with senior executives to outline the key questions buyers of commercial software solutions such as integrated workplace management systems (IWMS), building energy management systems and facility optimization platforms need to address to select the most appropriate solution. Questions that will be addressed include which vendors are taking advantage of the latest technologies to improve solution performance and ease of use and which software solutions are best suited to scale with and organization’s short-term and long-term objectives?

Heads of real estate, facility managers, real estate asset managers and technology vendors should attend this webinar to understand the key questions they should be asking when thinking about buying a real estate, energy or facility optimization solution.

Increasingly, wearable electronic devices (or “wearables”) are being used as specialized EHS tools for collecting and disseminating data to enhance workplace safety.

This webinar will help convey the specific EHS needs that wearables can help address, various wearables available today, and factors influencing whether these technologies can be successful. The webinar will be derived from our recent research and hosted by Verdantix Research Director Steve Bolton.
