It’s hard to prepare for global disruption. But it’s good to know that other real estate and facilities management professionals have found ways to reimagine and create a safer, more efficient workplace, even in the face of huge challenges:
It doesn’t matter if they’re facing hurricanes, earthquakes, floods or pandemics, the United States Air Force has to keep its 110,000 assets including 43,000 buildings, operating at peak efficiency. Hear why TRIRIGA is mission-critical to their efforts.
“We can do business smarter, faster and better, and ultimately cheaper for the taxpayer.”

Listen to how these iconic names are addressing some of the biggest challenges they’ve ever faced by attending TRIRIGA Academy, a free and on demand online learning event.
As you build your return to the workplace strategy, one of the most important metrics you need is occupancy utilization.
Whether your workforce has shifted from corporate cubes to home-based, or you offer essential services that require fully operational buildings, you need to know who is using your space, at any time, all the time.
Key questions to ask:
Who is occupying my facilities and when?
Are there opportunities to consolidate space?
Should we reconfigure or repurpose existing space?
If you’re making critical space decisions with manually intensive work and less-than-perfect data, now you can harness your information, make informed decisions based on real-time occupancy insights, and react quickly to changing business demands.
IBM TRIRIGA and Cisco have teamed up to give you the tools you need to deploy location sensing using your existing WiFi network infrastructure. Scale quickly and get faster, more accurate occupancy insights. It’s the fastest way to reimagine and streamline your spaces.
Preparing your facilities to be their safest means rigorous and constant adherence to new standards. That can lead to new projects.
You may need to:
Install high-efficiency air filters, hand sanitizing stations, no-touch trash cans, barriers between desks or workstations
Provide access to Personal Protective Equipment
Increase air ventilation rates in the work environment
Install new signage
Reconfigure spaces for social distancing protocols
You may also need to enhance your maintenance and operations routine tasks including:
New maintenance, cleaning and disinfecting protocols
All of these — while necessary — take resources at a time when your company might be facing economic challenges.
A capital planning tool can help. The most effective capital planning starts with a comprehensive view of your current infrastructure. Then, you can include any new efforts you need to take, track those along with your other ongoing costs of repairs and scheduled maintenance. You’ll have a holistic picture that lets you predict maintenance, refurbishment, or replacement timelines and cost.
