Use GIS to Better Support Operations

University and college facilities management departments are constrained by budgets, staff, and time. Yet the pressure to use space more efficiently, sustainably, and intelligently has only been increasing.

This three-part webinar series features leading universities and Esri professionals who discuss and demonstrate how facilities management staff can deploy and use GIS to better support operations. The goal of the series will be to lay out a pathway showing educational institutions what they can do with the tools they have today to work toward building a more integrated and intelligent campus.

ArcGIS is deployed on college and university campuses across the world, helping them operate more effectively and efficiently. This webinar will focus on the use of Esri solutions that create an integrated smart campus that delivers real-time facility awareness; drives Internet of Things (IoT) systems; and provides analytics that help you elevate the experiences of your students, staff, and visitors. Using data from sensors, facility systems, and utility databases, the enterprise system presents insightful operations information that can be connected to an indoor network via web apps, enabling visitors and maintenance workers to use smart routing to navigate buildings. The well-managed environment keeps people focused and productive.
