Technology in FM Award

Tech In Fm Header

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 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 apps and any similar initiative designed to support post-pandemic work and workplaces are welcome, too.

Entry process
The deadline for final submissions for the 2023 Technology in FM Award is Monday, 31 October 2022. Entry is simple –

Step 1 - Click here to download a brief preliminary entry form. Please complete this initially and email it to us. We will acknowledge it and provide some guidance on your full submission.

Step 2 – Shortlisted entrants will be notified in good time before judging takes place early in December

Step 3 – Join us at the Workplace Futures conference in February 2023, where the Award winner will be revealed.

Important to know

Entries – Past winners of this unique award have all been very different, spanning products, services, apps, websites and more. But they all have one theme in common: the use of technology in compelling and innovative ways to support facilities management, the FM team and/or people in the workplace. In addition, they have all been solutions that are readily accessed and interfaced with other systems and elements of a particular environment to make demonstrable contributions to business processes and the wellbeing of the organisation and its employees.  The key factors here are innovation, problem-solving and evidenced success.

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.

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.

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 fmtech@i-fm.net to find out more about the award, the entry process and judging.
