Executive Summary

Facilities optimization is the continuation and extension of energy management, applied to facilities and real estate. This report helps chief marketing officers and business development directors, at vendors providing facilities optimization management software and services, measure how heads of real estate and facilities perceive their firm’s brand. This Verdantix global survey interviewed 304 senior real estate and facilities management decision-makers at organizations that occupy mid to large real estate portfolios. The survey finds that five global technology vendors – Bosch, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Schneider Electric and Siemens – continue to have high brand visibility globally, though fewer respondents are describing their capabilities as ‘market-leading’ compared to previous surveys. A higher number of respondents are also registering greater interest in multiple specialist solutions, compared to previous surveys in 2018 and 2017.
