How IWMS Platforms Have Changed Over Time

Over the years, building management software (IWMS) platforms have become increasingly sophisticated. This is due in large part to advances in technology that have allowed for more data to be collected and analyzed. IWMS platforms are now able to provide a wealth of information that can help building managers make informed decisions about how to improve their operations.

Beyond Tracking Maintenance and Inventory

In the past, building management software was used primarily for tracking maintenance tasks and keeping track of inventory. However, today’s IWMS platforms go far beyond these basic functions. Modern IWMS platforms are designed to provide a complete picture of a building’s operations, including energy use, occupant behavior, and much more.

Energy Management Features

One of the most important changes to IWMS platforms is the inclusion of energy management features. With building energy consumption accounting for a large portion of a company’s carbon footprint, it’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to find ways to reduce their energy usage. IWMS platforms that include energy management tools can help building managers track their energy usage and identify opportunities for efficiency improvements.

Occupant Behavior Analytics

Another major change to IWMS platforms is the inclusion of occupant behavior analytics. This data can be used to understand how building occupants use the space, which can help building managers make informed decisions about building layout and operations. Additionally, this data can be used to improve building security by identifying patterns that may indicate potential threats.

Improved Integration with Other Systems

Lastly, IWMS platforms have become increasingly integrated with other systems, such as building automation systems (BAS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, and customer relationship management (CRM) systems. This integration allows building managers to get a complete picture of their operations and make more informed decisions about how to improve their business.
