The Future of Buildings

The 2016 FM:Systems User Conference is just a few short months away and I am already looking forward to yet another successful conference! Our conference continues to grow each year and it wouldn’t be possible without our customers and business partners who set aside time out of their busy schedules to attend. Everyone has one common interest—FM:Interact. The entire week is comprised of optional training classes, presentations, and networking opportunities that will allow you to learn new tools, technologies, and capabilities of FM:Interact and enable you to become more productive.

The theme for this year’s conference is “The Future of Buildings” and our agenda will include sessions that focus on new innovations and product enhancements that can help you maximize the use of your facilities space. We just published our full conference agenda that includes a variety of customer presentations on topics such as managing flexible workspace, KPI’s you should measure, how to evaluate your system to get the most out of FM:Interact, and more!

The FM:Systems User Conference is the best place to learn about current facility management trends and innovations, listen to best practices from industry leaders, and see the latest FM:Interact technologies. Whether you are a long time user of FM:Interact or are in the process of implementing you always learn something new at the FM:Systems User Conference. I could go on forever talking about all the reasons why you should attend (and register if you haven’t already!) but I have narrowed it down to what I believe are four of the top reasons why you should attend the conference.

In addition to the customer and FM:Systems’ presentations, we also offer the opportunity to troubleshoot your unique business situation via complimentary one-on-one sessions with FM:Systems consultants.
