As a solution specifically designed for the operations and maintenance of buildings and properties, MetaFM adopts Wafer Systems’ original platform structure while permitting development in new directions for building space management. Leveraging its powerful back-end self-configuration function, the system helps building operators to make accurate decisions on project operations, maintenance and management. The system also significantly reduces facility operations and maintenance costs, lowers potential risks relating to equipment operations, increases transparency in facility management, and maximises the efficiency of facility operations and maintenance. MetaFM can be applied in a diverse range of scenarios, providing a comprehensive smart space management solution for commercial properties, campuses and corporate offices.
