March has turned out to be event month in the commercial real estate and prop tech realms this year. This month, you can catch up with us at many of these facility management events including Building Operating Management’s National Facilities Management and Technology Conference & Exposition (NFMT), Propmodo Live in NYC on Managing Next Generation Connected Building Systems, and two DisruptCRE events.
These events share a common theme of how technology is impacting the real estate industry, facility management, and building operations. The organizations hosting these educational events are bringing together leaders in commercial, corporate, education, healthcare, and other real estate industries to collaborate on challenges we face today. We are excited to lead a few of these educational discussions and share what we have learned from working with some of the best in the business. Here are is a quick snapshot of a couple sessions we are leading:
NFMT – March 20 – 22 – Baltimore, MD
One of the challenges we constantly hear is how to select important metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure within organizations. After selecting, the next challenge we typically hear is how to analyze and use those metrics to make better and more informed decisions. Because portfolio management / ownership is requiring more data from facility teams to back up the decisions they are making, facility leaders are trying to find the best way to collect, measure, and view data. It’s a hard process if you are starting from scratch (or revising current KPIs) to figure out what you should be measuring and then selecting KPIs that align well with the data you are collecting and your organization’s goals.
During this session ,Jeff Thompson, CEO/Cofounder of AwareManager, will work through how he has helped our clients identify and use KPIs to improve their facility management processes. Jeff’s co-presenter, Tommy Gunn, Former Head of Global Real Estate at Philips, has lived first-hand, through the process of selecting KPIs for his facility management team. Together, they will share their lessons learned, helpful tips, and real-life examples from their experiences. Here are a few things you will learn:
- Five types of KPIs facility leaders should use to better understand and evaluate overall building performance.
- New strategies for rolling out the right KPIs that correspond with your organizations goals and objectives.
- How to use data you collect to drive smarter, more proactive decisions to identify risk before they impact occupants.
Propmodo’s Managing Next Generation Connected Building Systems Event – March 23 – NYC
At the Propmodo’s Managing Next Generation Connected Building Systems, we will be sharing different – and practical – ways you can use CRE tech to improve your building operations now. By ‘practical’ I mean real, attainable ways technology can help your teams work faster and smarter that can be applied to your facility management processes this month. Instead of throwing around buzzwords like Blockchain, robotics, and AI (amazing innovations, but not always realistic), our session is aimed at giving you ideas that you can implement today.
Since technology is changing faster than our industry, there is a real challenge that facility and property managers are facing. Many technologies on the market today aren’t necessarily built to last until tomorrow and that is one of the main challenges we see when working with clients in this industry. During this presentation we will share how to:
- Use technologies to set, measure, and analyze critical KPIs to provide enhanced business value.
- Implement mobile strategies to streamline day-to-day operations.
- Revamp inspection protocol (and actually get them done).
- Utilize automated alerts and escalation for a proactive facility management strategy.
- Leverage the power of integration.
We are excited to participate in these facility management events and share the insights we’ve learned. We hope to catch up with you there!
Also, if you can’t attend these events and are interested in seeing the presentation slides after the events let us know! We’d be happy to share.
