NFMT Austin, Texas – IoT and the Workplace: A Case Study

For those at NFMT Austin, TX, come join our CEO Lawrence Melton and a panel of GSA executives at 10AM CST as they investigate the impact of IoT on the workplace.

nfmtaustGSA’s Total Workplace initiative was established to help agencies make the most of their office space, in part via adoption of mobile, collaborative technologies and policies, such as wireless local area networks, cloud computing, virtual private networks, teleworking, and desk sharing and hoteling. The goal: Reduce the amount of real estate agencies need and, in turn, cut their office expenses and carbon footprints. How has the Internet of Things impacted the initiative? Attend this session for best practice examples from two executive change agents within GSA on how this transformation has worked well — and the challenges that lie ahead.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review GSA’s “IT Workplace of the Future” concept
2. Analyze a GSA High-Performance and Workplace case study
3. Discuss key findings from GSA leadership regarding future benefits and challenges to IT adoption and expansion

How Smart Buildings Cut Labor Costs

NFMT TX

Come join us at NFMT High-Performance Buildings in Fort Worth, TX June 2-3 where we will be presenting how smart buildings cut labor costs. Smart buildings are often called connected buildings thanks to the integration of multiple systems that optimize operations and boost efficiencies. They also cut costs in labor departments, allowing for proactive maintenance, more reliable occupancy patterns and simplified operations management. This panel discussion offers a federal buildings perspective on the role smart buildings play in reducing labor costs and increasing staff efficiencies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the federal government’s approach to smart building operations, and the use of intelligent monitoring to control the costs of energy-intensive systems such as HVAC and lighting
  2. Analyze troubleshooting capabilities of smart buildings that allow facilities professionals to assess real-time conditions, detect problems, and monitor building performance off-site
  3. Review the role of smart building technologies in simplified operations management.
