Digitalization Adds Transparency to Corporate Real Estate Management

Zug, Aug-18, 2015—At this year’s Expo Real, the exhibit of the Siemens Building Technologies Division will focus on digitalization in corporate real estate management (CREM). Under the motto “Unleash Your Building’s Potential”, it will present systems for capturing and analyzing energy- and infrastructure-related data as well as consulting services – all designed to help companies turn their buildings into strategic resources that contribute to their bottom line.

The essential driver behind these offerings is the fact that corporate real estate management has a profound influence on a company’s cost situation and tied-up capital and hence a crucial impact on its competitiveness. One prerequisite that allows commercial real estate to become a strategic resource which can be included in corporate planning is a digital database that consolidates both information about the infrastructure and energy behavior of buildings as well as information about their operating performance.

Commercial properties affect competitiveness

At its trade show booth, Building Technologies will show how corporate real estate managers can use digital technologies and sophisticated data analytics to boost the efficiency and performance of commercial properties, thus making a significant contribution to the profitability and hence the long-term competitiveness of a company. This encompasses both strategic aspects of portfolio planning as well as operational aspects of procurement, provisioning, management and marketing of properties. Other relevant topics include job satisfaction, increasing internationalization as well requirements resulting from stricter laws, standards, policies and sustainability criteria that need to be considered as part of CREM.

With its CREM offerings, Building Technologies provides a solid basis for decisions regarding a variety of aspects: long-term real estate portfolio optimization, economically and ecologically sound space utilization, maximum cost efficiency across the entire life cycle of a property and seamless property documentation. This allows companies to fully exploit the benefits that come with the effective and efficient management of their buildings and properties.
