It seems I have been talking about facilities management a lot recently, but despite this I still managed to miss news that iSite‘s SaaS-based Assetology Hub, launched in October 2012 (post), won the ‘Commercial Services’ category at the annual i-FM Technology in FM Awards, presented recently. In winning the award, iSite MD Martin Ward said they:
“… showcased how Nationwide Building Society has used the Hub to underpin business change of its Property Services Division – the results have been transformational. It’s been something of a privilege to be part of such an industry leading initiative.”
Given the apparent surge of interest in asset management technologies of late (in the past three months alone, I’ve talked about Aconex Smart Manuals, KyKloud, Dome Connect, Conject’s infrastructure life-cycle management strategy, and McLaren’s FMx acquisition), I expect iSite will face some stiff competition if it looks to defend its crown.
Constructing Excellence Awards
Meanwhile, the deadlines for regional Constructing Excellence Awards are slipping by. Some closing dates have already passed, but if the project or business is in London or the south-east of England you still have time to enter the south-east England awards, which close on 11 March 2013. Regional winners go forward to contest the national awards, presented on 29 November in London.
