Strategic smart buildings pact leverages data-driven IoT property operations

April 19, 2022
Facilio, Airmaster, and Nejavi have announced a strategic pact to accelerate IoT digital transformation in property operations.

Facilio, a global property operations software platform; Airmaster, an award-winning building services company based in Australia, and Nejavi, a sales advisory and delivery service focusing on digital transformation and business processes, have this month announced formation of a new strategic partnership.

As laid out in a statement on April 18, the partnership aims "to help real estate portfolio owners and operators realize next-level operational savings, energy efficiency, and improved building performance." Leveraging the combined power of Facilio's unified cloud operations software platform, Airmaster's intelligent building products, and engineering services, and Nejavi's experience in IoT service delivery, the partnership is poised to "accelerate smart building projects and solve portfolio-level IoT deployments without redundant site-level integrations," said the partners.

The partners say their joint customers are already benefiting from immediate value across the following areas:

  • Portfolio monitoring and visibility focused on portfolio-level performance benchmarking, sustainability reporting, and operational savings via FDD and business intelligence capabilities.
  • Enterprise O&M efficiency that goes beyond analytics to tie operations intelligence with automated real-time workflows including condition-based and predictive maintenance, conference and meeting room automation, occupants' apps and kiosk interfaces, customer self-service scheduling, and independent data layer capabilities.
  • Energy optimization to exceed sustainability goals and meet savings targets via cloud-based remote setpoint optimization, automated demand response, ramp up/ramp down optimization, occupancy-based setback, etc.

"The partnership with Facilio was an obvious fit," said Noel Courtney, CEO of Airmaster, who added, "It is the best of both worlds for our customers who will be able to use our intelligent/smart products and services to optimize the whole O&M lifecycle, energy performance, and customer experiences -- within a single platform."

Matthew Smith, Managing Director of APAC, Nejavi, commented, "The Nejavi team has always focused on strategies that help drive customer growth and the partnership with Facilio and Airmaster will further strengthen this offering and help customers effectively capitalize on IoT technology and solutions, linking technology, vendors and customers through a holistic business model. With a unique approach to property operations, a powerful technology stack, and strong industry experience, Facilio and Airmaster help us to develop winning IoT projects that meet the modern O&M needs of customers and enable a fully data-driven portfolio."

"We are committed to creating a seamless, smarter way to connected building operations as more and more customers embrace cloud-based portfolio performance management," concluded Prabhu Ramachandran, founder and CEO of Facilio. "By teaming up with proven ecosystem players, our customers can see multi-fold value by leveraging their existing supervisory controls infrastructure to deploy IoT-led high-performance portfolio operations with Facilio, Airmaster, and Nejavi."
