In this webinar iOFFICE + SpaceIQ explored legal and logistical perspectives on pandemic-era workplace policies.
Why watch? Two years the outbreak of COVID-19, some say the pandemic is transitioning to an endemic. If this health crisis lasts indefinitely, companies must understand what that means for their workplace policies.
Get answers to some of your biggest questions, including:
– What does a return to the office mean from a legal perspective
– Are companies liable for COVID outbreaks that occur in the office?
– What are the protocols and procedures leaders need to keep in mind while deciding when to ask employees to come back?
– Will you allow employees to mingle and meet with each other in person?
Join iOFFICE + SpaceIQ and their special guests to learn how technology is helping building owners and operators make data-driven decisions around operations and maintenance.
Tune in to gain meaningful insights on:
– The benefits of extended capabilities across the building lifecycle
– How BIM data adds value on top of workplace and asset solutions
– How Autodesk and iOFFICE + SpaceIQ are making these capabilities a reality
– And more!
Even during a run-of-the-mill business year, proactive facility maintenance requires real-time analytics and planning to keep a building’s engines humming. Since our world has been anything but average since COVID-19 hit, that need has only intensified.
One of the most valuable lessons for facility managers has arguably been the importance of a strategic preventive maintenance plan for everyday operations and crises.
Maintaining facilities takes an organised, concerted effort. Archibus OnSite makes work orders simpler.
Archibus OnSite is built on a modern, mobile framework that makes facility teams and field workers more efficient. From fielding and sorting work orders, to built-in compliance checklists – Archibus OnSite puts critical resources in the hands of craftspeople charged with vital facilities tasks.
Learn how learn how Archibus OnSite can transform the way your organisation manages its assets and seamlessly connect to other Archibus solutions.
As return-to-work plans adjust, Archibus is here with enhancements to help you evolve with your plans.
Learn how the latest release can help you manage reports and documents, enhanced desk booking, improved calendar integration, and enablement of the new Archibus Workplace mobile app.
The move away from regular office use has turned government-owned properties on their axes. Agencies not planning on bringing people back into the office are questioning the future of their spaces.
Download the guide, Options for Unoccupied Spaces: A Guide to Deciding What is Best for Your Agency, to explore what the future workplace may look like, what choices you have for your unused space, and whether retaining space is the right move.
Proper data transition between the building lifecycle phases requires coordination and precise project management.
The Best Practices for Using BIM in an IWMS Guide reviews what is needed in a BIM Execution Plan, roles and responsibilities, and things to consider when deploying an IWMS for lifecycle management with BIM. All of which can help ensure a smooth transition from design-build to operations.
Facilities managers have the complex task of providing efficient and effective care for building assets throughout the asset’s lifecycle, starting from asset acceptance through operational use, repurposing, and, finally, disposal. Preventive maintenance — a common way to care for assets — is often deferred because of the cost or extensive use of company resources. As a result, high-value assets are left unattended for long periods.
Organisations are beginning to take their preventive maintenance strategy one step further with a condition-based approach, which uses the data and analytics from building management systems (BMS) to determine what type of maintenance should be performed.
Learn how to seamlessly automate the process of turning analytics into action to help lower maintenance costs, improve service-level agreements (SLAs), and extend the asset life.
For many organisations, back to work is still a work in progress—and rife with challenges.
How do you safely and efficiently reopen the workplace, while also maintaining regulatory compliance? How can you create an environment where employees feel safe? The answer, is Hoteling with Archibus.
Hoteling makes it simple for employees to book desks and choose where they want to work—whether that’s at-home, in the office, or somewhere else. Archibus can support your transition to a hybrid work structure.
Given the current economic pressures, are you considering how to get the most out of your workspace?
Organisations that focus on asset management understand how to properly maintain assets to extend their lifecycles. Each strategy contains elements unique to the individual organisation.

Even during a run-of-the-mill business year, proactive facility maintenance requires real-time analytics and planning to keep a building’s engines humming.
Since our world has been anything but average since COVID-19 hit, that need has only intensified. One of the most valuable lessons for facility managers has arguably been the importance of a strategic preventive maintenance plan for everyday operations and crises.
