智在創城 – 後疫情數據化空間管理

  DIGITAL INNOVATION FOR URBANIZATION  

  POST - EPIDEMIC SPACE MANAGEMENT  

 The COVID-19 has posted a huge impact to the daily life across all walks of life. It witnesses a change in social behaviour, including “Work from Home” , disease tracking and quarantine. It also casts a challenge to the reaction and efficiency of public policies by the Government and facility management by the private sector.

The Facility Management business is one of few high-demand businesses during the pandemic. Some of the measurements shall become “new normal” and Data & IoT technology solution will play an indispensable role in bridging the supply & demand in Space Management, in both public and private sectors. Data & IoT Start-ups are invited to join force in filling the gap.

Property Management(PM) and Facility Management(FM) is defined as the management, control and supervision of the physical spaces a business occupies, which is done by the business owners or delegated to management service providers. Modernised Space Management works with market economy. In the prerequisite of well managing the property, it aims at providing people-oriented environments by both physically and mentally pleasing services.

  No matter if it is residential, commercial or public space, or the facilities and property management inside and outside the space, we believe that data-driven technological innovation will transform this traditional service industry.
