Revolutions do not always happen overnight. 

In fact, it sometimes is not even obvious that they are happening at all. It often becomes clearer after the revolution just how profound the change has been. 

As various megatrends combine to dramatically change the landscape of both suppliers and buyers, the building management industry is on the brink of one such revolution. 

In the past – different BAS brands, contractors, and diverse O&M teams have made it almost impossible for property owners and operators to keep operations standardized and efficient across the board. 

The widening gap between today’s needs and how context-lacked operational staff is – presents a huge opportunity to maximize the value of existing automation in buildings. And when viewed across a portfolio of buildings, this value compounds.

 

The inflection point in building operations today 

On one side, customer demands keep changing (with the pandemic adding to the complexity of new guidelines and occupancy fluctuation) and on the other, we have technology evolving fast. 

Today, property owners want a holistic view of their portfolio operations at any given time of the day. More demand for higher levels of comfort, safety, and energy-efficiency means more data, visibility into different aspects of operations, and smarter decisions to make. 

Consequently, we’re seeing how software vendors, sensors and smart device manufacturers, automation contractors, and IT system integrators are diversifying their businesses to quickly adapt and stay ahead of the curve. 

And, the main driver of this inflection point is data and improving results with it.  

The technology at the edge has become so good that the opportunities offered by data, integrations, analytics, and so forth are tremendous and will continue to change the way building service providers and vendors run their businesses. 

The ability to offer the right tailored solution is becoming fundamental to serve changing customer demands and our ecosystem is evolving with it.  

 

The Innovators Collective 

Working with different types of partners – we’ve seen how progressive companies have leveraged their existing relationships with customers to add more value by unifying operational data, analyzing it, and providing better efficiency opportunities – ultimately becoming the expert clients count on, especially in turbulent times like today.

It’s for that reason we’re proud to welcome our first batch of Facilio Partners to the #ReadyforInnovation Collective in Europe to lead the revolution towards data-driven building operations. 

Since we last opened our partner program in 2018, we’ve tripled down on our effort to build a global network of trusted visionaries and experts. With new guidelines in place – building service providers and vendors are altering the way they deliver projects to meet growing client expectations in a systematic and integrated approach.
