Facility managers are busier than ever, responding to an evolving list of responsibilities and a more demanding client base. Especially following the pandemic, the industry has become more reliant on data and technology, and decisions are now expected to be based on hard data rather than gut feel or experience. FMs need to know how to collect and use this data, as well as looking ahead to new technologies coming down the line.
Service Works Global (SWG) has created the Quick Guide for the Modern FM to provide key information at a glance. Based on the questions we’re asked most often, the Guide covers an overview of asset management, building information modelling (BIM), sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT), and what to look for when choosing new integrated workplace management system (IWMS) software.
It is becoming clear that data-led decision making is essential to deliver consistently high standards in FM and satisfy the increasing demands of building occupants in a rapidly changing environment. The industry has become more reliant on software like IWMS to collect, manage and analyse this data, and this in turn has paved the way for newer services like BIM and IoT. With the insight gained from SWG’s new Quick Guide, FMs will be able to provide new levels of efficiency and create positive business change.
