How IoT and digital twins are disrupting facilities management

The shift to a digital world has impacted almost every industry and now it is the time for facilities management to make the leap. The disruption is challenging protocols that have been in place for many decades and today, IoT and analytics have the ability to integrate a large number of data points which result in vast improvements in efficiency and effectiveness. 

Many companies are increasing the rate at which they implement IoT in order to improve overall operations and reduce costs. 

Data-driven decisions 

Existing building systems already produce a huge amount of data which tends to go unnoticed or unutilised. Unlocking this data helps to provide transparency and achieve better outcomes through making better business decisions. Twinview helps property managers to gain a full understanding of their buildings and make decisions based on hard evidence. 

Increased productivity 

IoT helps to drive productivity within the workforce and commercial buildings such as office spaces can leverage IoT to improve the working environment. Advanced infrastructures that use asset tracking technology with real-time data help with managing HVAC systems more effectively while IoT-enabled buildings can provide real-time data on occupancy and the use of sensors can offer real-time access to how spaces are used. 

Predictive and preventative maintenance 

The majority of the time we wait until something is broken before it gets fixed and such a reactive approach can be costly. Twinview ensures that FM teams can be proactive and improve efficiency by identifying problems before they arise. Predictive maintenance allows a digital twin to predict when an asset is due for repair and not just as it is about to break down, this lets management schedule maintenance at a time when it is cost and time effective. 

Optimising energy consumption 

Buildings are a big consumer of energy. Governments all around the world are increasing regulations on energy consumption as we move towards a net-zero world. Using machine learning, Twinview captures and analyses energy usage to see a full picture of where energy is being spent, in turn, helping to optimise the building and improve energy efficiency. Monitoring energy usage in real-time means management can reduce their carbon footprint and work towards achieving energy sustainability. 

Twinview is a browser-based digital twin platform for the property sector connecting building systems’ data to a 3D model viewed on a single dashboard. Twinview becomes your first step to achieving Net Zero by providing continuous live data and an optimised building performance whilst reducing costs and improving the user experience. Book a demo today.
