The Professional Retail Store Maintenance Association recently released their 2016 Trends Report. Among the top forecasted trends was the “Internet of Things.” To put it simply; how facilities maintenance crews are integrating technologies to gain true business intelligence.
“Technological advancements have transformed the work of facilities maintenance and the management of facilities operations. Smartphones and tablets have unleashed numerous innovations to help business get done, but these advancements have not gone far enough. There’s too much data – produced and gathered from too many different resources, and not enough integration to make sense of it all or capitalize on potential savings.” PRSM 2016 Trends Report
Big projects equal big data, but what good is the data if you’re not putting it to use to better understand your business & make decisions that equal better efficiency?
Powerhouse built a dynamic system that we use to create successful projects, but also allows clients to access site data they don’t typically get. Powerhouse clients are able to review and evaluate that data through our real-time information management system, Infinity by Powerhouse. Through Infinity, you can access graphs, charts and other information that shows exactly how each component of the project is progressing. Photographs and renderings are all conveniently accessible, right at your fingertips.
We developed Infinity to be the most comprehensive data management available. Each time new data is entered at a work site, Infinity is updated as the information is collected, providing you with up-to-the-minute information. Infinity can also send status reports to your email inbox.
