Digitalization in FM – Have Your Say

Digitalization in FM – Have Your Say
27 May 2021

Don’t miss your opportunity to take part in valuable research into digitalization in FM and help support the development of the industry.

This research will be used to shape training programmes for future facilities managers across Europe, and inform how technology is adopted throughout the built environment .

The quick, three-minute survey seeks to discover which technologies are most crucial to the industry right now, and predict how that may change in the future.




The Value of Technology for Clients in the Built Environment


Embracing digital change can be intimidating, but the COVID-19 pandemic has created additional urgency for FMs to digitise many of their processes. Gaining demonstrable value from digital technologies for clients is very much part of the remit of a facilities and workplace manager, and the digital revolution shows no signs of slowing.

Additionally, as companies reopen their physical offices and rethink their building operation strategies, technology will be a key component. From HVAC automation to data security and employee wellbeing, several tech-led solutions are already predicted to lead the way.



Analysis From Leading Universities


What will the future of technology adoption in facilities and workplace management look like? Should FMs be making better use of digital twin technology, robots and virtual front-of-house management? 

The data will be analysed by three leading European universities alongside FM House and findings will be published on ThisWeekinFM's Education & Training section once the report has been completed.

The survey closes on Monday 7th June 2021.
