In a clear demonstration of the quality of the entries, the judges for this year’s awards were unable to pick one winner.
The first top entrant, Yodiwo, (right, Demetris Papailiou, Business Development Director at Yodiwo, with Grame Hughes of award sponsor Innovise) is a highly intelligent one-stop shop Internet of Things solution that uses sensor, visualisation and analytics software to make drastic facilities savings. The technology is already in use in Swedish healthcare environments, where it is making a significant difference in areas such as predictive maintenance for HVAC systems. Judges were impressed by the scale and potential of Yodiwo, whose smart building technology may be applied to an almost limitless amount of scenarios in the facilities sector and beyond.
The joint award was presented at Workplace Futures: Adding Value on 6 February. Every year, i-FM’s conference brings together up to 200 leaders from across the facilities management and built environment professions to ask important questions about present and future trends.
