On Mar 31, 2015

Tuesday, March 31, 2015
10:00-11:00 a.m. PDT

Join FMP, Inc.for the first webinar in our 4-part series on Real Estate and Facilities Management in the Energy Utilities Industry.

Minimizing underutilized space and managing endless space requests from its business units are common requirements for an energy utilities’ portfolio planner.  It is not only necessary to manage that demand for space, but to align the requirements with the operational and strategic goals of the organization.

Moves, reorganizations and mission-critical projects drive constant change in an Energy Utility’s real estate portfolio.  The unique composition of this portfolio, including operating bases, office space, call centers and substations requires that real estate and space allocation decisions be closely aligned with the specific operations of the business units.  Centralizing the data, drawings and process associated with this task has become a necessity for any functioning organization.

Guest speakers Marisa Weinstein and Jay Shah will demonstrate ARCHIBUS software and speak on the information and tools needed by Strategic Space Planning to:

  • evaluate all requests according to consistent policy and corporate strategy;
  • account for capital project driven changes to defend strategic plans for future years with confidence;
  • utilize mobile devices to ensure accuracy in space allocation

ARCHIBUS Space Management  is part of a truly integrated suite, in which the same inventory can be used in Building Operations and the same move requests can be processed within Move Management.
