Matrix Booking has been named a finalist at the BIFM Awards 2018 in the Innovation in Technology and Systems category. The BIFM Awards recognise and showcase best-in-class Facilities Management (FM) and evidence its impact on business, the economy and society. The winners will be announced on Monday 15 October 2018 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.

Facilities Management professionals are responsible for services that enable and support business. As such, the BIFM Awards are much more than just a ‘ceremony’ – winners and finalists serve as a source of best practice for peers to be inspired by, and to learn from.

As the industry-leading Awards, the BIFM Awards seek out the gold standard across FM and beyond. Entries come from a cross-section of organisations regardless of size, type and sector from across the globe. This means that being a finalist, or a winner, is a true achievement and testament to the great work carried out by the individual, team, project, collaboration or organisation.

Matrix Booking Workplace Collaboration Hubs – Innovation in Technology & Systems submission summary

Matrix Booking is a leading workplace management Software as a Service (SaaS) suite. Open and secure, it is used internationally across all sizes of private and public sector organisations. In the UK, Matrix Booking powers systems for central and local government including Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Ministry of Justice (MoJ), the Home Office, Maritime & Coast Guard Agency, Department of Health, Government & Legal Department, the NHS and the newly formed Government Property Agency amongst many others.

The recent evolution of workplaces and working practices has meant an unprecedented change in the way workers interact with their estates and systems. It is no longer sufficient to provide systems that assist in optimising a single organisation and its resources. The new challenge is to build truly dynamic networks of resources that are both open and secure, providing users with a much wider choice of resources and locations from which to choose their ideal working environment.

As a result of this new demand, Matrix Booking took the decision to invest in the development of new innovative functionality that would fundamentally change the way the industry views resource management systems. The Matrix Booking Workplace Collaboration Hub technology was born – which presents organisations with the possibility to provide this new network of choice for users while introducing a new level of resource usage optimisation for facilities professionals.

As a direct result of this technology, there are thousands of civil servants in the UK today that can access over 100 public sector sites through a simple, secure web or mobile application. This unique architecture is enabling the hubs revolution across the public and private sectors in the UK.
