It’s always exciting to hear different industries realizing the benefits of cloud computing. Property management is a new sector to develop cloud server based tools to help keep track of the real estate being managed. We recently saw a good example of this with the latest development from facility and property management company Jones Lang LaSalle. They announced the creation of a cloud servers-based property management tool, IntelliCommand™, that takes cloud-based smart-building technology and combines it with real-time remote monitoring to allow long distance control of facilities on a world-wide basis. This is a great example of how cloud servers and cloud computing is changing the reach of many businesses.
A central location with access to leading edge technology will allow them to offer seamless and continuous monitoring of any building’s performance including everything from HVAC to air compressors allowing the delivery of peak performance around the clock. The cloud servers-based technology will be able to detect anomalies in operating systems and report them to on-site engineers or deploy appropriate resources to resolve specific situations as they arise.
For a look at how this new innovative use of cloud server technology has helped this business to reduce overhead, energy costs, and lower facility management costs over time, read the press release at MarketWatch.
