IWMS systems are one of the intriguing, innovative technologies with the most compelling promise for facility optimization. Building occupants, facilities service providers, building owners, and property management organizations utilize IWMS to aggregate and handle information about properties and provide operational upgrades. An IWMS makes it easier to manage and report on data, make the best use of space, improve maintenance and service performance, and keep staff engaged and happy.
Employee wellness, co-working, flexible workspaces, facility optimization, sustainability, and technology-driven performance improvement are all corporate facilities management trends that have an influence on IWMS. Important technological aspects in real estate include connectivity, mobile app usage, artificial intelligence, digitalization, and open platforms. Therefore, real estate and facilities professionals prioritize the efficiency and happiness of the employees by implementing green and adaptive workplace practices. They optimize the use of available space, minimize operating expenses, and introduce cutting-edge tools to boost day-to-day operations and build a strong technological backbone.
Users of an IWMS continue to prioritize conventional space, service, and maintenance management. Nevertheless, they anticipate more from an IWMS to enable larger organizational trends and advancements.
According to a further Verdantix study, suppliers adapt to and look forward to market trends and technological changes. A lot of emphasis is put on improving future buildings through voice-based tools for workplace support, efficient use of office space, and employee-centric solutions. They also value improved user interfaces and boost the adoption of mobile apps. The development of APIs and smart building technologies have enabled the creation of ecosystems in which IWMS and other applications may interact and operate together.
Smart Infrastructure Ecosystems
Additional research suggests that other upcoming technologies may affect facility optimization. From a practical point of view, some upcoming technologies include real-time space management, business intelligence for facility operations, and integration with the Internet of Things (IoT) platform.
As technology improves, IWMS integration will become less complicated. In future buildings, IWMS Solutions will “open its doors” and become an API-based system. This implies that their IWMS platforms are used as a foundation for the creation of apps by third parties like customers and business partners.
Users will get “tailored” features faster, and these applications will be built at a lower cost. It will be easier for organizations to combine IWMS with smart building technologies and make apps that make this interaction easier.
These advancements will aid in the creation of smart infrastructure ecosystems. For instance, end-users are provided with the functionality they need and accurate predictive assessments via networks of buildings, IWMS, IoT, and other software that operate together. Planon has begun collaborating with commercial entities in order to integrate smart building technologies into our IWMS.
Critical insights into the facility’s operation are provided by one of these smart building technologies. For instance, constantly monitoring systems, identifying issues with the facility and its holdings, and constructively solving inefficiencies. When more smart devices are integrated with the IWMS platform, a plethora of data about buildings, assets, spaces, contracts, tenants, staff, and maintenance will become instantly available via a standard link with Planon.
To assist managers in making educated business choices, the IWMS platform is linked to predictive analytics tools for data analysis and information display. There is potential for more problem-solving insights by integrating data with guidelines and machine learning techniques.
When integrated with smart building technology, the IWMS platform will benefit future buildings, renters, service providers, financial experts, and office users. A few possible advantages include making the proper judgments based on organizational-specific business preferences, eliminating budget overruns and depletion, and instantly delivering high-priority jobs to field engineers. These advantages will grow as IWMS systems evolve and combine with smart building technologies.
