Discuss the challenges faced by FM service providers to implement Smart building solutions on their clients sites, share some recent experiences. During May /June we had an ‘accelerator’ programme running to bring new innovation to Sodexo over a 10 week period - two of the successful collaborations were in relation to Smart building technologies and platforms. I'll cover the purpose of the 'accelerator' programme and share our partners solutions, implementation and highlight the challenges that needed to be overcome.
