ValuD recognizes that RE/FM business leaders are challenged with delivering enterprise-level visibility into their organization’s real estate and asset portfolio performance. RE/FM technology continues to play an increasingly critical role as an enabler or inhibitor in this equation. Furthermore, organizations have a complex menu of technology sourcing options and alternatives – from IWMS technology, SaaS and ASP hosting options, to real estate service provider capabilities.
Consequently, the RE/FM technology imperative is growing. Many leading organization are using these issues as a strategic window of opportunity to address foundational RE/FM technology issues, including:
- Are we using the right systems?
- Are we getting our system(s) from the right provider(s)?
- Are there redundancies in our current RE/FM technology environment?
- Do we have the appropriate data governance structures in place?
- Are we paying too much?
- How can we further optimized the use of our system?
ValuD’s RE/FM technology strategy services are structured to help our clients develop a strategic playbook for optimizing their existing technology environments and planning their next generation technology model. As partners in our clients’ success, ValuD uses our GenNext strategic technology optimization methodology to help our clients manage their RE/FM technology strategy and roadmap.
Using this approach and supporting toolkit, we work with our clients to develop a baseline of existing RE/FM technologies, isolate redundant and building block systems, identify next generation capability goals and objectives and develop a strategic RE/FM technology playbook and executable roadmap. After making our initial program recommendations, we provide annual GenNext health checks to evaluate program progress and re-prioritization of playbook and roadmap activities.
By incorporating ValuD’s GenNext program, our clients are positioned to navigate RE/FM technology decisions with greater assurance, expose areas for cost savings, and isolate opportunities for optimization. For many of our clients, it also serves as a highly effective tool for establishing the ‘guard rails’ for managing day-to-day RE/FM technology activities.
