The presenters will share approaches for collecting, managing, and using facilities data to inform decisions, plus discuss tools and processes that support efforts to use data. You’ll learn how to develop a compelling business plan to leverage financial opportunities and reduce the deferred maintenance backlog, while simultaneously reducing your institution’s carbon footprint.
