Built to reduce costs, save time and promote safety. How Pointivo supports your post-COVID facility management plan.  

For most of 2020, the coronavirus pandemic has wielded heavy influence over our day-to-day lives, both personal and professional. After months of sheltering-in-place and social distancing, we’re all facing the challenge of navigating returning to work and school while still keeping health and safety top of mind. For facilities managers, this challenge might include preparing a thorough reopening strategy and planning for work deferred during the pandemic. In many cases, it means changing the way they do business to account for a remote workforce – one of the lasting effects of COVID-19. 

We’ve all read countless articles and reports about the new normal – how you can (and should) pivot your operations to support a remote workforce and keep your business running. With all of the savvy tips, resources and quick fixes available, it is easy to become overwhelmed. 

At Pointivo, our solutions have focused on remote work and worker safety since day one, long before COVID-19 started making headlines. As you consider your ongoing facility operations, Pointivo can offer the cost reductions, time savings and efficiencies you want, as well as the increased safety you need.

Remote, Contactless Work Isn’t Going Away

As businesses across the United States prepare their Post-COVID strategies, a June 2020 survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers shows that a permanent, flexible work week has broad support. Most office workers (83%) want to work from home at least one day a week, and half of employers (55%) anticipate that most of their workers will continue to work remotely even after COVID-19 is no longer a concern.

How does this affect facility management plans? Roofing contractors and facility owners depend on access to roofs on commercial buildings daily to ensure the maintenance and well-being of their investment, but this continues to prove challenging due to restrictive access policies and the inability to deploy workers quickly under enhanced safety and social distancing protocols. Additionally, contractors have their own employee well-being to consider as well and are working to limit exposure. 

How will you get your work done without getting your team or a contractor onsite?

A Complete, Long-Term Solution for Facility Assessments 

In this new environment, the facility management industry is rethinking the process and seeking tools for contactless, remote management to make sure their buildings’ wellness doesn’t miss a beat, even when they can’t be there in person. In its midyear 2020 construction and engineering industry outlook report, Deloitte notes that technology, including AI-based solutions, can bring greater efficiencies and help create a safe working environment. 

This is where Pointivo comes in. 

Pointivo’s Spatial IQ: Facility Management combines AI, computer vision and advanced analytics to deliver the information needed to quickly budget for repairs and to track roof, structure or office complex deficiencies. The information provided enables a more manageable workflow with your roofing and building contractors and service professionals. Additionally, it dramatically reduces the time spent on facility assessments by delivering more finely detailed, accurate dimensional data and insights of your building and its surroundings.

These contactless virtual assessments allow for project continuation by a remote workforce, keeping your employees safe. Further, the platform empowers facility managers and building owners with unique perspectives to impact business decisions relating to damage detection, inventory management, budgeting and risk mitigation.

We built Pointivo to reduce costs, save time and increase safety. Today, these attributes have never been more critical for a complete facility assessment solution. Contactless is the new standard for workplace safety; let us help you get there.
