The 2018 Facilities Show at London’s Excel centre, the biggest event in the UK FM calendar, offers an ideal opportunity to learn about the latest news and advancements in the industry.

International technology provider, Service Works Global (SWG) will be exhibiting on stand P750, showcasing its flagship facilities, property and workplace management software, QFM.

A suite of modular management tools, with a fully integrated mobile app, QFM is proven to optimise the efficiency of assets, buildings and services, enabling measurable cost savings. The software is underpinned by expert consultancy services in CAFM (computer aided facilities management), space management and BIM (building information modelling).

Hot Topics

A topic high on the agenda at this year’s show is the ‘workplace of the future’, with a series of debates and presentations devoted to the matter. This theme is reflected in the results of the recent FM software survey conducted by SWG and leading media publication, FMJ, where respondents were asked to identify top technology trends coming down the line. The most popular answers were self-service, followed by energy monitoring and property and space management.

With a big focus in recent months on employee wellbeing, this year’s show also features a dedicated ‘occupational health and wellbeing zone’ providing useful insight and solutions for workplace improvements. SWG’s team will be on hand to demonstrate how QFM software can improve workplace wellbeing and productivity by:
