The expanding role of facility management
With digitalization and the growing demand for smart building technologies, the scope of facility management is expanding. A recent IDC MarketScape report on SaaS facility management application vendors recommends that organizations look for vendors that can provide CAFM capabilities beyond maintenance management and find a solution with capabilities that expand into workplace management functionalities, such as space management, service delivery, event management, visitor management, lease administration, capital planning, and energy and sustainability.
The “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS Facility Management Application 2021 Vendor Assessment”* also states that organizations should be thinking about their long-term facility management strategy and how their needs may change as the scope of facility management continues to expand with digitalization and smart building technologies. When it comes to building a relationship with a SaaS integrated facilities solution provider, the IDC MarketScape notes that organizations should evaluate a vendor’s customer relationships, configurability, mobility, location intelligence, IoT, and long-term vision.
