Decision-Maker’s Guide to Facility Management Technology Solutions

Most facility teams are not lacking for building documentation. Over the years, building plans, emergency plans and equipment info are accumulated and stored in plan rooms, assembled into a binder or added to other computer files. Often times they are hard to find – but rarely quickly – creating inefficiencies for technicians who are on the go. As buildings age, more and more time is spent searching for drawings since every new renovation project adds more to the paper/digital pile. Technicians wind up spending 2-3 hours per day searching for info while other times they simply get frustrated and give up. Facility management business productivity is measured by labor costs + work completed. While business software in the facilities space has a positive impact on asset management and environmental issues, productivity improvement tools based on mobile-first apps are a new category.

Facility management teams have been using software in their buildings for 20+ years to help manage energy, control HVAC systems and deal with work orders. These systems are invaluable, but there’s room for innovation to fill gaps that aren’t addressed by industry-standard solutions, e.g. access to building plans.
