Introducing the intelligent FM platform.

Anacle’s Smart FM solutions, enterprise-grade technology platform to manage properties and portfolios with real time digital insights for FM practices and maintenance teams. Powered by AI and advanced analytics, to improve operational reliability and drives efficiency in managing real estate portfolios. Anacles aggregates all your FM services into a single platform and leverages the latest technologies to deploy a scalable, tech-enabled approach that benefits your entire portfolio.

Planned or unplanned maintenance.

Optimise FM workflows and outcomes with technology that delivers real-time asset performance information, and automates compliance reporting and asset inspections.

Remote spatial maintenance – VR/XR. 

Combines remote computer-generated reality, mixed reality or augmented reality monitoring and diagnostics, alarm triage and advanced analytics to drive next best actions.

IoT & sensors.

Empowering building owners and managers with the data and tools to quickly identify and address building system inefficiencies. Make well informed decisions by collecting and analysing all relevant building data – including equipment IoT sensor data, HVAC, electricity feeds, BMS, and weather data.

Predictive maintenance.

Take a proactive approach to maintenance by predicting when equipment failures may occur and schedule maintenance to prevent these failures, rather than waiting for them to happen.

Workflow automation. 

Digitise your building operations by sending every issue straight to your maintenance contractors. Significantly improve team productivity and stop relying on wasteful routine inspections.

Building optimisation.

Use your existing equipment more intelligently by improving the performance via control systems (i.e. optimisation or tuning) and deliver immediate gains in operational efficiency. Often, ROI can be measured in months, not years.


Employing a data-driven method, which aims for higher environmental and sustainability ratings such as NABERS, LEED, Green Star and Green Mark. This has proven implications for improved financial performance, marketability, and asset value.

Why use smart FM technology?

Real estate leaders’ top priorities – portfolio strategy, cost optimisation, decarbonisation, and employee experience – will not be realised without digital transformation.

Cost savings in maintenance repairs

Reduction in technician dispatch

Reduction in janitorial costs

Reduction in energy consumption

Key steps to drive CRE digital transformation.

1. Blueprint

When contemplating a smart-building strategy or program, prioritise a thorough assessment of your facility’s needs and objectives. Define clear goals, engage key stakeholders, and establish a roadmap for phased implementation with consideration to short-term wins and long-term sustainability.

2. Define the approach

Simply selecting a technology or engaging a specialist consultant will not achieve effective outcomes. First, identify key stakeholder groups, including facility managers, IT professionals, and end-users. Establish clear communication channels to understand their unique needs, concerns, and expectations. By fostering collaboration and obtaining insights from these stakeholders, you lay the foundation for a tailored and effective smart-building strategy, whicht aligns with the broader goals of your organisation. This inclusive approach ensures that the implemented technology not only meets technical requirements but also addresses the practical needs and expectations of those who interact with the facility daily. An end-to-end approach should incorporate the technology solution and its implementation; service delivery and change management; and verification of the benefits realised.

3. Technology map

The technology chosen for a smart-building program should directly align with the objectives identified. For example, consider the following objectives and corresponding technology solutions:

Minimise Equipment Downtime: Leverage IoT sensors to provide real-time asset performance monitoring. Predictive analytics can be employed to anticipate maintenance needs, enabling proactive interventions and minimising downtime.

Reduce Waste: Utilise data trends to adapt resource usage dynamically. Smart sensors and monitoring systems can analyse patterns, allowing for optimised energy consumption, waste reduction, and ultimately improving the overall customer experience.

Overcome Labour Shortages: Implement technologies aimed at reducing resolution time. Augmented reality (AR) for remote troubleshooting, automated maintenance alerts, and intelligent ticketing systems can enhance efficiency, allowing for faster issue resolution and mitigates the impact of labour shortages on facility management.

By aligning technology solutions with specific objectives, a smart-building program becomes not only technologically advanced but also directly impactful in achieving targeted goals. This strategic integration ensures a more efficient, responsive, and adaptive approach to facility management.

4. Measure and verify results

Measuring and verifying intended results will help real estate teams as they refine and improve their smart-building strategies. Establish baselines for each objective and outline a plan for continuous monitoring and evaluation. Regularly assess key performance indicators (KPIs) aligned with your predetermined goals, utilizing data analytics tools to track progress and identify areas for enhancement.

Moreover, implement feedback loops from end-users and stakeholders to gather qualitative insights. This feedback not only validates the quantitative data but also provides valuable perspectives on the user experience and the overall impact of the smart-building initiatives.

Incorporate a culture of continuous improvement by using the gathered data to refine strategies, update technology solutions, and adapt to changing needs. This iterative approach ensures that your smart-building program remains dynamic, responsive, and aligned with evolving objectives, ultimately fostering a more intelligent, efficient, and sustainable real estate portfolio.

Smart building analytics for operations. 

Leverage your data, to work smarter and generate significant operational efficiencies across an entire portfolio. Harness the transformative power of analytics to align your maintenance with industry best-practice. Deliver maintenance efforts that are targeted and efficient, enabling more focused schedules, optimised resource use, reduced downtime and increased equipment lifecycle. 

Understand occupancy and utilisation.  

Beacons, sensors and wifi data points to register when employees arrive at their reserved workstation, record of who sat where and when, measuring dwell time and more.

Energy consumption.

Optimise energy consumption and maximise environmental performance without compromise to tenant comfort using AI-powered analytics.

Fault detection and diagnostics.

Supplement your BMS system by providing critical data that can be used to optimise equipment performance and lifespan, eliminate inefficiencies, and reduce energy consumption and costs.

Algorithms and expert rules.

Gather and analyse all relevant workplace and building data, including equipment IoT sensor data, HVAC, electricity feeds, BMS, and weather data for self-analysis and self-tuning to enhance your build management systems (BMS).
