The annual i-FM Technology in FM Award recognises companies and organisations in the facilities arena that are utilising new technologies to achieve exemplary improvements in business processes and performance in the world of the connected workplace.
The Technology in FM Award scheme is open to entrants from across the facilities management industry and its many associated sectors. Entries are welcome from end users or tech providers across a broad range of initiatives – service delivery or management, internal or external communications, projects, apps – anything that demonstrably contributes to enhancing work, the workplace or the environment for people at work. Joint entries, for example from a tech company and a client, are also welcome. And of course Covid-19 apps and any similar initiative designed to support the return-to-the-workplace process, reinforce health & safety procedures or enhance employee comfort and wellbeing are welcome too.

Cost - Please note that in line with most other FM award schemes we have reluctantly introduced a modest entry fee of £250 to help cover administration costs. This can be paid online in conjunction with submission of the preliminary entry form - you will be sent a payment link once we receive your form.
Judging – All shortlisted entrants are assured fair and impartial assessment by a panel on which the majority are independent FM and technology experts. Judges will be particularly interested in the ‘who, what, why, where, when and how’ elements of each entry as they seek to understand and assess the drivers for its development and the benefits it delivers.
More information – Further information about what judges will be looking for will be provided with your entry acknowledgement. You can email us any time on email@example.com to find out more about the award, the entry process and judging.
