Building Engines Updates CRE Building Maintenance, Inspections Capabilities

Boston-based Building Engines, a building operations software provider that was recently acquired by JLL, has updated its Prism platform with enhancements for preventive maintenance, readings and inspections.

The updates focus on managing maintenance schedules and activities, streamlined workflows and executive-level insights into operational efficiencies.

Features include:

  • Comprehensive readings
  • Executive dashboards
  • Maintenance projections summary
  • Mobile readings
  • Multi-building preventive maintenance schedules

 “The fact is, there are lots of different ways to handle maintenance and inspections – calendar, rolling, conditional, exception-based, and so on – particularly within large enterprises with complex property environments,” said Jeff Thompson, vice president of product management at Building Engines. “With Prism, we’re giving our customers the power and flexibility to support all of these different maintenance requirements, along with the tools to do so more efficiently,”
