The prestigious Facilities Management Awards 2017, coordinated by BUILD Magazine, has identified Innovation Birmingham Campus-based Spica Technologies as the best facilities management solutions provider in the UK.
Officially announced at the end of February, the award recognised the PropTech specialist’s application of a combination of technical assets, hardware (sensor devices), software components, and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to help businesses capitalise on the opportunity that the IoT represents.
Spica’s value proposition is to provide innovative technology enabled business outcome solutions in the context of the varied stakeholders involved in the ownership, maintenance and occupation of commercial/public sector buildings, focusing on helping to deliver healthy buildings that promote risk and cost reduction, whilst improving the health, wellbeing and
productivity of people that use the buildings. Tim Streather, Sales and Marketing Director at Spica Technologies said:
“At Spica, we provide an overarching solution framework approach that allows provision of multiple service offerings, all via a consistent browser-based application toolset, whilst integrating core enterprise applications (BMS, CAFM, Room Booking, ERP etc) and avoiding silo’d apps over time.
“Our expertise spans IoT (device/networks/security), internal positioning systems, cognitive analytics, concierge-style mobile app development, integration, and technology advisory and managed services to help promote rapid adoption and value realisation.”
Moving forward, Spica’s ongoing focus will remain on providing clients with the cutting-edge solutions that they need. Tim added:
“Looking ahead, we foresee new buying patterns; a thirst for tech-led solutions, and less reliance in inefficient low-skilled tasks, allowing staff to focus on higher value service delivery. Price point is no longer a good enough differentiator, with little cost left to squeeze out of already wafer-thin contract margins.
“Moreover, FM companies and departments are looking to deliver the same services in different ways, and also offer new services to market (especially around workplace productivity), in order to remain relevant. Spica’s solutions are targeted to allow FM providers to rapidly grow and adapt to these changes.”
