Leading the Evolution of Traditional Facilities Management to Employee Experience and Workplaces
Raleigh, N.C. – March 9, 2020 – To help facility and real estate teams effectively manage even the most demanding building portfolios under challenging environments and employees with mobility and tech-savvy expectations, FM:Systems has assembled the FM:Systems Digital Workplace suite of solutions. By leveraging data science and machine-learning, these solutions harvest raw data and return actionable insights on how facility space is performing and how to better manage every facet of the facilities to create an optimized, employee-centric workplace.
Optimizing both building performance and employee experience are not mutually exclusive. The age of the Agile Workplace is here as organizations embrace innovative open office environments, largely driven by new technologies that allow employees to work anytime, anywhere, with greater productivity and collaboration than ever before. Placing employees at the center of this workplace transformation requires close alignment between spatial needs that support the organization’s mission and the creation of the ideal workplace to support employee wellness and productivity.
Creating the employee-centric workplace experience is not a linear process and requires solutions that allow an iterative approach to measuring building performance, determining responsive change due to actionable insights and then delivering the optimal workplace. FM:Systems’ software and hardware solutions enable organizations to identify, plan and deliver the ideal workplace experience for all employees and occupants of facilities.
“It’s an exciting time to be in facilities and real estate. Advances in artificial intelligence, sensors and analytics can provide a full picture of an organization’s facilities portfolio and employee activities,” said Kurt von Koch, FM:Systems CEO. “Organizations can now ensure they’re providing the best possible workplace for all employees and occupants by leveraging comprehensive facilities analytics and managing facilities with the insights gained.”
The FM:Systems Digital Workplace suite is organized across three solution sets with individual products in each set that can be deployed as stand-alone point solutions or as integrated solutions for additional benefits. FM:Systems products connect with third-party technologies as well, extending capabilities and gathering full data for holistic views and analytics of the facilities environment.
FMS:Workplace is a modular, easy-to use Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) that enables organizations to manage and report on facilities and real estate operations and maintenance (O&M) information. Access to accurate data means facilities and real estate professionals can deliver better customer service, reduce costs, and improve the performance of facilities portfolio-wide.
FMS:Employee innovative technologies deliver new levels of efficiency and productivity for mobile, virtual and traditional employees. From finding and reserving conference rooms and video conferencing facilities to shared workspaces and managed services, the FMS:Employee suite of software and hardware solutions are the most comprehensive digital workplace solutions available.
Leading organizations capitalize on data analytics to gain competitive advantage. Sophisticated data science and machine-learning algorithms enable FMS:Analytics products to identify workspace opportunities determined by extensive insights on facility utilization, employee mobility and more. Leveraging existing data sources, these solutions gather comprehensive information, apply powerful algorithms and quickly deliver analytics at a scale, speed, level of accuracy and price not possible with manual methods.
