As the summer draws to an end, SWG looks back on the progress through the last quarter. Our latest newsletter will highlight the key updates from over the last few months, including case studies, announcements such as the renewing of our ISO accreditations for another year, and the release of new resources to help FM teams navigate the challenging FM landscape.
ISO Accreditations Renewed
Despite a challenging year for so many, we have, once again, achieved ISO certification for exceptional information security (ISO 27001) and quality management (ISO 9001). Recognised worldwide, ISO 27001 is the gold standard certificate in IT security. Organisations awarded with it meet essential criteria in the key areas of data confidentiality and integrity, and availability of systems and data. The ISO 9001 standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer service focus, a process-driven approach and a commitment to continual improvement.
We also celebrated the renewal of our Microsoft Gold Certified Partner accreditation, which recognises our ability to deliver best-in-class solutions and its expertise with Microsoft enterprise technologies.
Client Case Study – 3D BIM Modelling
Read our new case study with Bräckeskolan School.
The local administration in the City of Gothenburg, Sweden, commissioned SWG to develop a 3D BIM model (building information model) of the 8,000m2 Bräckeskolan school. The model and data will be used as a design reference for the renovation and extension of the school, and for the production of as-built plans.
Facilities Show: Connect 2021
Service Works Global attended the first fully virtual Facilities Show: Connect 2021. SWG took part in both a technical product demo and a panel discussion entitled ‘Data-Driven Decision Making’. Each session was accompanied by a live Q&A and gave our clients an opportunity to engage with our CAFM software and industry trends.
Industry Collaboration: SWG & IWFM discuss BIM for FM
Our BIM specialist, Penny Brinsley, joined the IWFM to present a two-part webinar, “BIM Data for FM Systems.” The webinars provided an introduction and overview on what BIM is, how to use it as a support for effective facilities and asset management, and the management of transferring BIM data into an operational system. You can watch on-demand via IWFM.
