FM:Interact to streamline real estate and facility data and provide better tracking for space utilization
RALEIGH, N.C. – November 1, 2011 – FM:Systems, a leading provider of integrated workplace management systems (IWMS) and computer-aided facility management (CAFM) software, today announced Amegy Bank of Texas, a full-service bank offering expertise in real estate, energy, and correspondent banking, has selected the FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite to automate real estate and facility data, provide better tracking for space utilization, and improve its facility maintenance help desk functionality.
A customer for more than ten years, Amegy Bank originally selected FM:Systems for its space management solution, but as the bank grew, so did its need for efficiency. Looking to automate all previously manual operations, Amegy upgraded to the FM:Interact Space Management and Facility Maintenance Management Modules.
“FM:Systems has allowed our department to be much more efficient in the work we do,” said Dana Walker, SVP, interior design manager, corporate real estate and facilities, Amegy Bank. “The software is large enough to handle all our needs without being cumbersome, allowing for better and faster service to our end users. We’ve had great results with FM:Systems thus far so it only made sense to upgrade to FM:Interact, knowing it will scale with us as we continue to grow.”
Amegy Bank has already seen increased efficiency by saving employee time and creating a more lean and streamlined department. Future plans include implementing the FM:Interact Move Management Module.
“It’s a big compliment when an existing customer decides to upgrade. It means we’ve been serving them well and they know that expanding their system will bring them even more value,” said Michael Schley, founder and CEO, FM:Systems. “The financial industry, now more than ever, needs to maximize the utilization of space and employees, while tightly monitoring expenses.”
