The real estate sector is in constant transformation thanks to technology, a series of startups are helping change the rules of the game. Proptech facilitates processes, increases competitiveness, and makes for the market to become more dynamic.

Technology enables new professions to form, including that of a facility manager whose job is to streamline all the steps required to manage properties. Also, an updated, improved and expanded version of farm managers with a greater number of occupations and greater responsibilities.

Facility managers are helped by online platforms to search for handymen and professionals for everyday home improvements and maintenance services, including masonry, technical repairs, plumbing, electrical, carpentry, painting or cleaning.

The maintenance and control of properties can be challenging at times, and this is how technology can come into play. Some important points to take into account:

  • Machinery control: Among its functions, it is important to supervise the correct functioning of the air conditioning systems (boilers, chillers), electrical panels, water pumps, elevators, etc.
  • Preventive maintenance: Systematization of reviews to conserve facilities and equipment and reduce the occurrence of possible breakdowns.
  • Deal with suppliers: Hire the products and services necessary to achieve a good organization of the building and ensure its proper maintenance.
  • Coordination of internal and external teams: Direct professionals, belonging to the workforce or subcontractors to efficiently carry out the tasks entrusted.
  • Solution of unforeseen events: The appearance of unexpected problems is frequent in the management of any building. The facility manager must show a high reaction capacity, as well as have at their disposal a complete team of professionals that will allow you to resolve any inconvenience quickly and efficiently.
