If you have been noticing that your IT department and Facilities department are spending more time together these days, you are not alone. Work order software for schools has historically been more focused on the building maintenance side of things. There are assets on the IT side, like Chromebooks and network access control points that are managed in school work order software, but generally speaking the two sides have been separate. That is until recently with the advent of building automation. According to BusinessWire, the building automation industry is expected to reach a value of $215B by 2027. Typically, building automation deals with heating, ventilation, air conditioning, security and access control. The demand for increased energy efficiency and maintaining a secure & safe environment with enhanced user convenience is only rising and the time to embrace it is now.
