Real estate portfolio managers face a complex operating environment characterized by the need to reduce operating costs, manage infrastructure, and improve performance within a changing business climate.
GIS allows these managers to view their facilities on a map and optimize usage. With geoenabled asset and facilities management, financial services organizations can improve space planning and energy efficiency and, at the same time, control spending and mitigate risks. Facilities can be "right-sized," balancing space needs while maintaining appropriate customer service levels.
GIS provides an information hub that connects all the different views of a facility — financial, legal, operational, and schematic — into a common decision-making framework that addresses the strategic and tactical needs of the organization. This fosters improved analysis and collaboration using geography as the medium.
