Etisalat Facilities Management (EFM), a subsidiary of Etisalat, has signed an agreement with eSolutions to jointly offer "smart integrated facility management solutions" to achieve cost savings, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Etisalat Facilities Management general manager Ali Hassan Harmoodi and eSolutions groups managing partner Gaby Matar on the sidelines of the FM EXPO in Dubai.

By partnering with eSolutions, EFM will be able to enhance its operations by utilising IBM cloud-based solutions in areas of facility management, space management and workforce management while optimising related operational expenses. Said Harmoodi: “The facility management industry is going through a major transformation, which is reshaping its requirements and priorities, mainly driven by the technology advancement and the tendency to outsource."

Said Matar: “Together with a highly skilled team of professionals, we will deliver quality enterprise solutions that match the highest international standards reducing costs, maximizing production uptime and enabling smart decisions.”

Also at the FM EXPO, EFM and Etisalat Digital are showcasing the latest technology and innovation on the facility management industry, utilising IoT platforms and cloud-based solutions. Both are developing smart digital interactive systems to remotely monitor and control the built-space, and utilise the IoT eco-system and analytical platforms to enhance energy saving, reduce the utilities consumption and optimise the operational efficiency.
