Facilities Management

facilities management

The objective of facilities management is to provide a corporate strategy for the management of a company’s property assets (buildings, plots, spaces, etc.), thereby reducing maintenance costs and increasing the availability and functionality of the spaces.

Facilities management is used in buildings, installations and infrastructures:

  • Administration and management.
  • Space planning and management.
  • Inventory and management of furniture, equipment, computer systems, etc.
  • Maintenance management.
  • Field data collection and inventory update.

The incorporation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) into facilities management offers several benefits, such as:

  • Property management (valuation, rents, costs, etc.)
  • Space management: use, availability and query via the web.
  • Management of furniture and equipment: deterioration, moves, evaluation of state.
  • Building maintenance.
  • Georeferencing of people and assets within the facilities.
