What is IWMS?
Managing a workplace can be challenging and complex in today's fast-paced and dynamic business environment. That's where an IWMS comes in - it combines data and analytics to provide a comprehensive view of the workplace, helping organizations optimize their space use, reduce costs, and improve sustainability.
It can help companies to identify underutilized spaces and repurpose them for better use, monitor energy consumption and identify areas for improvement, and even help organizations to meet sustainability goals and reduce their carbon footprint.
With the rise of IoT and smart buildings, IWMS is becoming increasingly sophisticated, providing real-time data and insights that were once impossible to obtain.
