SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2020 — Airport City Logistic Properties and the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services – both customers of Archibus, a SpaceIQ product – won prestigious Verdantix Smart Building Innovation Awards for their respective industry categories.
The international awards recognize organizations that have implemented innovative technologies to enhance their facilities and real estate strategies. Winners are selected by an independent panel of workplace experts.
Airport City Logistic Properties (ACL) of Beijing, China, won the Transport and Leisure category for automating lease administration across 7.6 million square feet of warehouse and office spaces. ACL integrated Archibus — the global IWMS leader for managing facilities, infrastructure, and real estate — with its financial ERP system, IoT sensors, and office administration system to improve data accuracy and help prevent significant rent loss.
NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) won the Public Sector category for its deployment of Archibus to centralize lease and space utilization data. The system enables DCAS to better understand space requirements, which has supported a cost avoidance of $12 million to date.
“We are thrilled that two of our Archibus customers won the prestigious 2020 Verdantix Smart Building Innovation Awards in their respective categories,” said Nick Stefanidakis, SpaceIQ Vice President of Field & Sales Enablement. “Our powerful and easy-to-use solutions provide measurable ROI in cost savings through better management and technology-enabled processes for organizations like NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services and Airport City Logistics Properties. I’m so proud to see these great projects and project teams get the visibility and recognition they deserve.”
The winners will be further acknowledged at Verdantix Next & Best Practices: Learning From 10 Smart Building Innovators virtual event in December.
