“Because we are multi-functional and multidivisional, we wouldn’t have been able to effectively reconfigure all of these spaces in a smart way, without FMS:Workplace. We probably would’ve used AutoCAD to update spaces, which would’ve been very arduous, people-intensive and about 75-80% more time to complete. With FM:Systems, we can access data to inform decisions in a matter of minutes!
