The methods used to manage many of North America’s 10 million buildings are stuck in the past. City, state and federal government facilities teams, as well as school districts and higher education institutions, and hospital and healthcare centers are all challenged with siloed systems, disjointed communications and limited budgets. Up-to-date building information like as-builts and O&Ms are difficult to find, warranties may be expired, and compliance not met. How are mobile apps finally making a break-through? Attend this interactive discussion with industry experts to see how iPad Facilities Dashboard apps are helping teams respond faster to emergencies, increasing collaboration between teams, and improving productivity by 20 percent.

Facilities Information Management: City of Wilsonville
Watch how the City Wilsonville used technology to organize and access their facility documents.

Organizing and updating facilities documents is a big job. Who is the go-to person to access those documents? Isthat person available to others? One to two hours a day is wasted by facilities employees searching for the documents they need to do their job. Attend this Q&A panel to hear the City of Wilsonville’s Matt Baker, public works facility supervisor, and Javid Yamin, field manager, re-live the pressing reasons that made them shift to a digital solution. They will share how they now manage all of their buildings’ information via mobile dashboards and how it has changed the way they work — increasing safety, compliance and productivity for the city. 

I look forward to seeing you there!
