If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
A smart building program is a strategy to implement and utilize a variety of real estate-focused technologies across all buildings and systems to improve portfolio management and operations; reduce capital and ongoing expenditures; and create a better environment for occupants.
Some solutions claim to be “smart building offerings,” but actually only provide a fraction of the desired solution. A really good one should be:
- A software interface that anyone and everyone can access and use anytime, anywhere.
- A single source of the truth that gives you a central, cloud-based command and control.
- Scalable across the portfolio and allows you to seamlessly add new assets.
Being charged with reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for real estate assets, improving the occupant experience or improving brand perception, means you need a smart building program. And you need it now.
