Understanding the intersection of technology and the built environment to deliver better business outcomes and performance will be instrumental for engineers, architects, contractors, integrators and other professionals in the AEC industry to be successful. It presents a fantastic opportunity for owners to leverage technology to modernize their buildings and assets. By addressing occupants’ well-being, energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions and decarbonization targets, the AEC industry can bring existing buildings into the future.

Running a business is complicated. Running a field service business is even more challenging. Juggling managing staff, assets and customers can be a laborious and manual process. The only tool missing from your belt is a single software solution. As the final piece of the puzzle, using a software that connects your IoT assets and the rest of your business within one 360 degree maintenance management solution is the way of the future. Smart buildings are managed by smart businesses.
