Cohesive Solutions to present at TRIMAX 2017 on importance of KPIs


Anthony Honaker, VP of product strategy and development at Cohesive Solutions, is slated to speak at this year’s TRIMAX 2017 conference on November 30th. Hosted by IBM, TRIMAX is an annual TRIRIGA and Maximo Enterprise Asset Management user group conference. Throughout the conference, clients, business partners, and IBM representatives share their knowledge, use cases, and innovative thoughts around the products and associated business processes.

“What makes a great learning experience for our attendees is having solid content presented by leaders like Cohesive who have industry experience and first-hand knowledge of the challenges Maximo users face today,” said Tina Scott, IBM Business Development Manager and TRIMAX leader.

Honaker’s presentation – “Beyond Dashboards: Using Measures and KPIs to improve your processes and achieve business results” – walks through the health and management of the business processes that support the organization’s overall strategy. This presentation will discuss how organizations can focus on improving their operations, as well as the use of their business systems, and achieve real business results by looking beyond dashboards, and using KPIs to improve the business processes and achieve results.

Verdantix: Employee-facing tech makes buzz at World Workplace


Verdantix attended IFMA’s World Workplace Europe conference on 31 May to 01 June. This major event for the facilities management sector had almost 400 attendees including facilities and workplace management professionals, service providers and technology companies.

So, what was the hot topic? One major theme of the event was how to connect people to the workplace using digital technologies. For example, we heard that facilities management firm ISS is piloting a digital concierge service which assists occupants in managing everyday tasks such as room booking or organizing catering. It is based on providing occupants self-service apps, as well as chatbots which simulate conversation to respond to worker requests.

Engaging occupants has become a hot theme across real estate, energy and facilities management software markets. For example, incorporating crowd-sourced insights on temperature preferences is gaining momentum in energy management applications, witness Energy Deck or Honeywell’s Vector Occupant App.

In the integrated workplace management system (IWMS) space, developing modules to engage everyday office workers has become a recent focus. For example, in May 2017, IWMS provider iOffice launched a set of employee experience solutions which can be layered on legacy IWMS solutions, to quickly make systems more employee-centric…

FM trends in high-performance buildings and workplaces (HPB+W)


The annual High-Performance Buildings + Workplaces (HPB+W) conference takes place at the Arlington (Texas) Convention Center, May 17-18. Registration is free!

Greg Zimmerman brings more than 13 years of experience and knowledge to the facility management field. He discusses the changes and trends he’s seen in the quickly evolving occupation. With technology rapidly influencing the profession, facility managers can expect to see the effect in their everyday jobs and the overall performance of their buildings.

What misconceptions do people have about smart, sustainable buildings?

A common misconception I hear is high-performance buildings or smart buildings must be super expensive and complex. That’s simply not true. Even small buildings that are easier to operate can be smart, high-performance, and sustainable. Most buildings in the United States are smaller, so we can really start making a dent…

What excites you about the future of the facilities business?

The rate at which high-performance building technology is being implemented is really encouraging. The Internet of Things, IoT, is one example. We have adopted IoT technology in our personal lives, and now we’re doing that in our professional lives. People have been using smart phones to remotely control things…

What advice would you give to facility managers just starting out?

One thing to focus on is learning about what’s going to be important in the future. The biggest topic in facility management right now is high-performance buildings and sustainability. Technology is second nature to young professionals just coming in. Understand and learn the technology. Be the “go to” person for your building…

What do people need to know about HPB+W?

This is really the only show of its kind, covering such a wide range of topics. It concentrates on energy and water efficiency, air quality, IoT, technology; all falling under the umbrella of high-performance buildings. This is our third year of the show and we are really hitting our stride…
