1. Showcasing the new FM:Interact Functionality on the Expo floor

We love meeting FM’s on the Expo floor, it’s always great to learn about existing facility management processes and demonstrate the ways our system may be able to improve those processes. This year we’re looking forward to showcasing functionality that was recently released in version 8.5, such as:

  • Improved user interface for better ease of use.
  • Our new business intelligence tool, FMx Reporting, allowing users with little report writing knowledge to quickly create reports in the browser.
  • Floor Plan Viewer Enhancements such as drag and drop room assignments, print to PDF with a high degree of layer control and improved controls for viewing plans.
  • Our new configurable mapping tool for easily navigating to any location in the portfolio.

So, please come and see us at Booth 1027 to say hello and see how FM:Interact can streamline your organization’s facility management processes.
