The Challenge

A smart facility management system to manage 5 new towers

Electra group of companies has been developing new high-rise commercial towers intended for high-end customers. Recently the company has finished building 5 new towers.

  1. All towers are installed with IoT devices, smart power and water management, smart lighting, smart cleaning systems, controllable machines and sensors, security and safety systems, and parking and gate systems, all of which need to be both smart and green, but also offer advanced high-level services for the tower’s residents and offices.
  2. Electra needed to find a cloud-based, smart facility management system, that could integrate, control, and monitor all their towers remotely from their main HQ.
  3. The system should be flexible and generic for all types of systems installed and should have customizable integration workflows and rules for automating all sub-systems’ control and operations.
  4. The solution should incorporate a mobile application for all facility management staff to receive technical alarms and faults, as well as control smart elements directly from the phone.
  5. The solution should have a visitor management system built in.
  6. The solution should assist in cutting down facility management costs, time of response to faults, and reduce utility charges.
