Tips for Evaluating New Technology

Technology is changing at breakneck speed in virtually every single aspect of our lives. Facility management is no exception to that trend. In order to keep up with the competition in this ever-changing environment, it’s important to know the newest and most innovative tools in the industry.

Facility Management Software

If you haven’t jumped on the Facility Management software train yet, you’ve already been left in the dust. Facility management software allows facility managers complete access to all relevant systems, assets, and equipment information. There are many programs available now, and almost all of them compile information in graphs, charts, and other visual aids that can help you get a better picture of the health and well-being of every part of your facility.

Motion Sensors

Motion sensors, when combined with a facility management software program, can give you indispensable information about the use and utility of every room in your facility. That means you can track how often, how much, and when different spaces within the building are being used. Some software suites also come with analytics tools that can help you strategically heat and cool rooms individually. AI technology even allows for facility management software to regulate processes and system function based on trends the software observes, like automating lights in a regularly-occupied conference room. This can add up to a lot of savings on your facility’s utility bills, which is the #1 expense for businesses worldwide.

Artificial intelligence (AI)

Artificial intelligence isn’t just for sci-fi movies anymore; many industries have been using AI programs for years. As the tech gets more advanced, it will only be adopted by more businesses. That also means these programs will soon be able to automate almost any process you give them permission to.
