Higher Education

Universities and colleges face unique challenges when it comes to managing their real estate. Facilities management software helps higher education institutes understand their real estate, streamline moves and space management as well as adapt to shifts in how and where faculty and staff work.

University facilities management software provides accurate, real-time data on space productivity to drive indirect cost recovery (ICR) rates. Most universities waste thousands of dollars and countless hours doing manual space surveys for ICR.

“As a rapidly growing university, we needed a better model to understand how we used our space and how we could utilize it more efficiently. FM:Systems made it easy for us to understand the opportunities within our portfolio so we could better serve the needs of our students, faculty and staff.”

Optimize Your Space Surveys & Drive ICR

For most universities, compiling and validating what is happening in their space can be a painful process.  Access to accurate, integrated university space data leads to better Indirect Cost Recovery (ICR) rates and smarter use of one of your most expensive assets—your real estate. With an average cost of over $400 per academic square foot, every single foot counts at your institution. And if you’re keeping track of your real estate using outdated, manual spreadsheets or clunky DIY solutions, then you don’t really know how your space is being used.

→ Get defensible data & maximize ICR rates

→ Streamline space surveys

→ Set a single source of truth for your information
