What is an IWMS?

Managing workplace resources has grown increasingly complex and multifaceted. An integrated workplace management system (IWMS) is a software platform dedicated to administering and optimizing these resources, so an organization gets maximum usage from its various real estate, facilities and infrastructure assets.

Among its advantages, an IWMS provides a single source of truth, enabling real estate and facilities management professionals to react quickly to change, make strategic space management and occupancy decisions, and ensure the best possible services for their occupants.

In addition to its benefits to organizations, an IWMS typically supports sustainability goals by maximizing efficiency when it comes to the building’s use of resources such as water and energy. This is usually best achieved through the smooth integration of an IWMS and building management systems.
