LONDON, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Facilities  management  webinar  promises  to  put  technology  under  the  microscope 

The facilities management industry is notoriously people heavy and less techie than other service industries. Less than 10 years ago, the average FM was only using the internet a couple of times a week. But things have changed.  Now that the recession has lifted, it has left FMs with more growth to support. But what is worth spending your budget on? The value and range of technology is debated in this technology focused webinar, taking place on Thursday  March  20  at  11am  GMT. This complimentary webinar is brought to you by Service Works Group, working with the Facilities Show.

Just  competent  or  really  savvy  - how  much  does  the  FM  need  to  know? 

Experts from Channel 4, CB Richard Ellis and Service Works Group will discuss the role of technology in FM and the impact of mobile technology, cloud computing and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in a webinar titled "Technology - Changing the Future of the FM profession?"

Digital  nomads  -  how  does  the  business  handle  them? 

More and more employees are working from home, from trains, from different countries - sometimes all in the same week. So the concept of the workplace is continuing to evolve. When Microsoft introduced a flexible working policy, it was able to accommodate 30% more people in the same amount of space. The webinar will look at ''Space Management and the Changing Workplace" alongside other technological issues.
