HARMAN and Microsoft are conducting a workshop at the FM Expo on 27th to help decision makers to understand how to quantify the return on investment for an IoT project.

  • While facility managers might be thrilled to make their lives easy and could be enlightened about technology, it is of utmost importance to look at what Return on Investment (ROI) they can hope for in the FM function
  • The workshop will help to identify specific pain areas through conversation with the experts and learning about adopting IoT technologies.

The workshop is aimed at supporting decision makers to systematically define their challenges, problem areas and also see opportunities to address these challenges.
