Remote monitoring results in savings as well because it provides time for regular inspections, while mobile technologies, sensors and cloud computing - when combined with data analysis - could further enhance potentials.
Ahmad Al Kandari, Vice Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, UFM, MEFMA board member, concluded, “Complex
and intelligent structures require technology-driven, integrated FM services to ensure optimum use of facilities, smooth and efficient operations, and substantial savings at all levels. The future FM sector in the Middle East will be determined by its capability to adopt technologies and will be measured by the efficiency of its delivery of services. To remain highly competitive in the modern world, we should incorporate smart tools into traditional services to make them more efficient, achieve higher savings, properly maintain the facilities and expand margins for utility management companies and customers alike. The possibilities are endless, and the FM community should keep up with these dramatic changes brought on by ongoing technological innovations.”
