This season we are revving our engines for 2012, including a great plan to continue to build new features and functionality into the application. On December 22nd, we will introduce a new module! (hint: it rhymes with “schminpections”)

A theme you will see throughout the year, however, is technology-enabled best practices for building operations. For unlimited access to our operations best practices content, live and archived webinars, demonstrations, and more, you can join the Building Engines Inner Circle for free! We will ramp up our scouring of industry experts to gather more statistics, trends and best practices in property operations and workflow management than ever.

One major focus for the new year will be making data visible and actionable. You know all that data you’ve been collecting in your closet? Well, it’s time to make sense of it all! We will continue to evolve our analytics model and further develop the Building Health Quotient concept that we released in the latter half of 2011.

As we evolve the model, we will introduce functionalities including the ability to set your own benchmarks and targets, and then report against them. Over time, you will be able to use this data to create meaningul reports that reveal trends and reflect your progress in relation to set goals.

We are very excited for our plans in 2012, and we look forward to providing you with more visibility after the New Year.
