IBM Watson Analytics for real estate and facility managers


In November, we announced the launch of our TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics – letting business professionals and facility managers easily integrate their TRIRIGA buildings data directly into Watson Analytics…

Self-service analytics: The answer to the data skills-gap

Today, getting access to the information you need to run your business probably means working across a number of different roles and teams: IT to get you access to your data, business analysts to help make sense of your data, and data scientists to help build predictive models. But the time and cost associated with getting the insights you need to solve daily problems can be prohibitive…

This is where Watson Analytics comes in. The easy-to-use interface is designed with business users in mind, enabling guided data discovery, predictive analytics and automatic visualization. For real estate and facility managers, Watson Analytics with TRIRIGA is your data scientist in a box…

How will you use your new insights?

The cognitive power of Watson Analytics allows it to uncover important and unexpected insights hidden in your data. You may uncover energy usage trends that you didn’t know were impacting your bottom line, or use Watson Analytics to reduce under utilized space and help lower your cost per square foot.

By exploring lease data, you might predict future capacity and achieve standards compliance. Or you may drill into your maintenance data for insights that will reduce operations costs and simplify service delivery…

FM:Systems FM:Interact success story at Drexel University


Prior to using FM:Systems Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), FM:Interact, the University had abandoned an obsolete Space Management solution and were largely using Excel sheets to “guesstimate” space utilization…

After investigated 6 different Space Management software providers, they chose FM:Systems because it met, and exceeded, these baseline requirements:

  • FM:Systems provided more out-of-the-box functionality than its competitors
  • FM:Systems had a vested interest in our success, because it offered direct contact during implementation and maintenance, with no third-party managing the process
  • The Software as a Service (SaaS) model meant FM:Systems had a lower cost of implementation and ongoing maintenance
  • The system allows for unlimited “general users” which was critical to the RCM mandate for transparency
  • The user interface was easier to navigate for University stakeholders than other products investigated
  • The most compelling reason for choosing FM:Systems? Their people.
