conject, the leading provider of modern, integrated Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (ILM) solutions has introduced its innovative, Internet-capable conject Facility Management (FM) solution for the Middle East’s burgeoning construction and real estate sector through its recently opened office in Dubai.
The conject FM solution helps to cut building management costs by allowing customers to improve the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of their real estate and property management system. Especially companies and authorities that need to manage extensive real estate portfolios on tight budgets will benefit from the improved valuation of costs and buildings, cost-effective management and strategic area management.
Frank Weiss, Managing Director, conject International says: “We are bringing our Facilities Management suite to the middle east as an ideal cost-effective solution for the region’s rapidly expanding FM market, which in Dubai alone grew to an estimated AED 2.5 billion in 2005 and is giving even the Emirate’s fast growing construction sector a run for its money.”
The conject FM modules are devised for commercial, infrastructural and technical facilities management to help all owners or facility managers to clearly structure their data, administrate any technical equipment and build up an individual system for efficient management of incidents. The solution addresses industrial issues such as energy management and hazardous waste disposal management.
“Facilities Management applications can have a significant impact on a business’ bottom line by trimming excessive overheads and maintaining well-adjusted asset life cycles. Keeping this in mind, conject has designed its Computer Aided Facilities Management solution as a fully integrated suite that combines data from different sources to optimize Facility Management functions for the entire organization,” added Weiss.
The solution is being used in some 230 installations at over 6,000 workplaces internationally. Many German governmental institutions are maintained with conject FM, among them the German Parliament and several universities and hospitals. Based in Munich, conject has offices across Germany and offers its long-standing expertise of over 25 years through international offices in Russia, USA, The Netherlands and now in Dubai. The regional office serves the entire Middle East as well as the Asia Pacific region.
Available in nine languages including Arabic, conject’s portfolio of ILM solutions comprises over 40 Web-based IT modules that span the entire lifecycle of real estate projects from the stage of planning and building to developing and operating. Besides conject Facility Management, these solutions include conject Project Management and conject Commercial Management with which multiple project tasks such as setting up real project collaboration, documentation of data and ongoing maintenance can be automated.
