FM:Systems Announces Platinum Level Support for the 2014 Workplace Strategy Summit

University College London will be hosting a gathering of the leading thinkers in workplace strategy.

RALEIGH, N.C. – 6/04/2014 – FM:Systems, a leading provider of Integrated Workplace Management systems (IWMS) and Computer-aided Facility Management (CAFM) software, today announced Platinum Level support for the 2014 Workplace Strategy Summit to be held in partnership with the IFMA Foundation June 8-10. The summit will feature a gathering of the leading thinkers in workplace strategy and will be held at Wokefield Park Conference Centre in Berkshire, England.

“FM:Systems is proud to be a platinum sponsor for the Workplace Strategy Summit,” said Michael Schley, CEO and Founder for FM:Systems.” The traditional approaches to reactive space management are being replaced by creative, proactive ideas in workplace strategy, and the important work conducted at this summit enables us to be at the forefront of change in today’s dynamic facilities environments.”

The Changing Workplace
Modern organizations are adopting new approaches to workplace planning and operations which have led to an increasing need for flexibility in how organizations use their available space and building assets. These new approaches to working include flexible workspace, support for cross functional teams, ad-hoc and collaborative areas, and workspaces that break away from the practice of assigning one workstation per employee. Rapidly evolving technologies are now enabling employees who have been in a traditional office setting to work anytime and anywhere.

Building on the success of the first Workplace Strategy Summit held at Cornell University, the 2014 summit will feature leading academics and experts in the fields of facility management and real estate speaking about the most innovative concepts to emerge in workplace strategy. Attendees will not only hear from these global innovators, but also be able to engage with the presenters and other attendees from all over the globe in round-table discussions on a range of issues related to work and workplace in the 21st century.
