March means spring is almost here. It’s time to get your house in order.

Looking from from between the water sensitive areas in your data closet stacks, or from compressor motors in HVAC and refrigeration systems after a cold winter, changing seasons means corporate facilities need to be managed a little differently.

That said Utah slopes are still powder fresh, so let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

The House

The story begins with that dear old house of yours. It’s been with you for a long time, but its always shiny in your mind. Let’s just say you’re deeply invested in the longevity and integrity of your house.

Could be you’re in corporate facilities management for a large corporation, like BD Medical. You know cleaning house ahead of time often means a healthier bottom line in terms of workforce, equipment, environment, and overall systems efficiency.

As an owner, you maintain on-site production, food services and shipping operations. From server rooms to processing, , amenities, services and storage, everything is company-owned. Efficiency and cost-savings are up to you, the existing systems in place, and your in-house facilities team.

The Frustration

Fine-tuned coordination is a must because you manage the details directly rather than farming them out. This is the essential difference between you and the property manager on Main Street. As a corporate owner, you’re constantly in the business of home improvement, so you ask, what’s today’s answer that will get me through the coming fiscal decade?

When it comes to corporate facility management, unexpected repairs resulting from water or temperature damages, energy costs, and maintaining secure building and data access are common sources of frustration.

The Internet of Things (IoT ) shows, these frustrations are about to end.

The Order

Here’s order for tomorrow.

We hear much about the ‘company fight’ for tech to optimize budget and performance. But are ‘snap’ solutions available? Are the rumors about IoT for real?

Emphatically, yes. The Internet of Things can turn every inch of your responsibility into smarter, cost-saving facility management solutions that are closer than you might think. Applied, the Internet of Things uses data from processes, systems and equipment to create efficiency, which translates into reduced cost and better all-round performance.

Carrier reported studies by the U.S. Department of Energy indicate measures, like remote monitoring solutions can reduce maintenance costs by as much as 30 percent, and eliminate breakdowns by nearly 75 percent. Numbers like these add up quickly.
