An Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS software) is a solution for Facility Management (FM) to help optimize the facilities and asset infrastructure across a portfolio of real estate. An IWMS software solution integrates five core functional areas for Facilities Management. It includes Real Estate and Properties, Facilities, Capital Planning and Projects, Operations and Maintenance, and Energy or Utilities.
IWMS software provides administrative control over the entire portfolio including buildings, assets, spaces and the operation and maintenance to maximize current and future investments. In addition, IWMS software contains budgeting capabilities for capital improvements and future asset management needs in a unified database structure. The integrated approach supports better communication between departments and provides deeper visibility to make more informed strategic business decisions for current use and future growth needs or infrastructural changes.
IWMS software typically integrates to other business critical applications such as HR, Purchasing, or Finance.

IWMS software gives the operation an ability to respond to customer requests proactively, take control of real estate and asset expenditures, plan for future needs, and analyze performance across the portfolio (e.g., real estate, properties, buildings, spaces, assets, and people).
The best integration is "no integration", meaning everything you need resides in a single software platform as opposed to integrating disparate systems. FacilityForce is designed from the ground up to use a common database of properties and assets, which provides a seamless experience across the board.
Whether or not you leverage them all, the fact that FacilityForce offers real estate & lease management, space management, maintenance & operations, capital planning & project management, and energy management means room for growth.
