The facility management sector is awash with acronyms, especially in the technology sphere with CAFM, CMMS, EAMS, FMIS, IWMS and MMS bandied around with increasing ease, if not understanding. These acronyms stand respectively for computer-aided facilities management, computerised maintenance management system, enterprise asset management software, facilities management information system, integrated workplace management system, and maintenance management software.
UK based FM software provider Service Works Global has launched an industry poll to discover which is the most popular term used to describe facility management software.
The three question poll will demonstrate which is the most popular term in different countries, and whether facilities professionals believe the acronyms describe broadly similar, or different, functionality. The results will be released shortly.
