Building automation: monitoring and control of building functions such as lighting, air conditioning, security and energy efficiency.
BIM (Building Information Modeling): Use of digital models to manage the entire life cycle of a building, from design to maintenance.
Rental management software: manage ownership, leases and payments for residential and commercial properties.
Sensor technology: Use of sensors to monitor and verify building data such as energy consumption and indoor climate.
Smart home technology: using smart devices to control and monitor building functions and services.
How can managed services help facility management?
It depends on the provider what problem solution they want to achieve. Examples would be:
- Monitoring and maintenance management for buildings and technical systems to avoid cost-intensive failures.
- Energy cost management for monitoring and optimizing the energy efficiency of your buildings.
