Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS) and IoT working in tandem

IWMS and IoT working together in real estate

Real estate challenges have become more complex, and Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) is a critical tool for organizations that are looking to manage their real estate and infrastructure more efficiently.  

These systems are designed to streamline the management of an organization’s real estate assets, helping to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve overall business operations. In this article, we will explore the benefits of IWMS systems, how IoT sensors enhance the system, and why IBM Tririga is an excellent choice for organizations looking to optimize their real estate management. 

Why choose an IWMS system?

IWMS systems provide a comprehensive platform for managing an organization’s facilities, assets, and infrastructure. They offer a variety of benefits, such as:  

  1. Improved visibility and control: Getting real-time visibility into an organization’s facilities and assets, enabling facilities managers to make informed decisions about space utilization, maintenance, and asset management. 
  1. Cost reduction: Reduce costs by optimizing space utilization, streamlining maintenance and repair processes, and improving energy efficiency. 
  1. Increased productivity: by automating routine tasks, IWMS systems free up staff to focus on higher-value activities, such as strategic planning and analysis. 
  1. Compliance: IWMS systems help organizations comply with regulatory requirements, such as safety regulations, environmental standards, and reporting requirements. 
  1. Data-driven decision-making: facilities managers are gaining real-time data and analytics, enabling them to make informed decisions about facility management and asset utilization. 

Enhance with sensor data

IoT sensors have lately become a crucial component of these IWMS systems, as they provide real-time data on facility usage and asset performance. The data helps to optimize space utilization, streamline maintenance and reduce energy consumption, which is very important nowadays.  

  1. IoT sensors provide real-time data on facility usage, such as how many people are using a particular room or floor, how frequently assets are being used, and how much energy is being consumed. This data is critical for making informed decisions about space utilization, asset management, and energy conservation. With real-time data, IWMS systems can optimize space allocation and ensure that assets are being utilized efficiently, reducing the need for costly upgrades and replacements. 
  1. IoT further enhances the ability to respond to enterprise’ needs. The sensors extend utilization precision to desk and room level, allowing for you to enhance the workplace experience and make data-driven decisions.  

By applying IoT and AI across real estate portfolios, you can increase facilities utilization by 20% and reduce energy consumption by 29%

Why IBM Tririga is the way to go?

In conclusion, IWMS systems are an essential tool for organizations looking to optimize their real estate and facility management processes. IWMS systems, with the right IoT sensors included, provide real-time visibility, reduce costs, increase productivity, ensure compliance, and enable data-driven decision-making.  

How do Haltian and IBM Tririga work together?

Haltian has joined IBM’s IoT Interoperability program and integrated its Thingsee IoT solution with IBM Tririga. This enables Haltian’s customers who use IBM Tririga Application Suite to get sensor data from Thingsee Operations Cloud to their system with minimum effort, through a standard setup.  

The Thingsee platform is an IoT solution that makes any building smart. The solution, consisting of sensors, gateway & cloud is software independent, easily scalable, and globally connected, straight out of the box. Thingsee directly integrates with IBM Tririga. The data, like occupancy data, can be seen on Tririga Building Insights (TBI), allowing for you to have data seamlessly on one platform.
