AT&T will Discuss How it Takes a Centralized Approach to Capital Planning
BOSTON—November 20, 2014—VFA, Inc., an Accruent company and the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced it will host a complimentary webinar titled “Developing a Strategic Capital Plan for Centralized Control – A Case Study by AT&T” on Thursday, November 20 at 2 p.m. EST.
Kimberly Chestnutt, senior manager national staff corporate real estate, AT&T, will discuss how AT&T takes a centralized approach to capital planning using technology that allows them to capture data at the field level and leverage that data to make strategic capital planning decisions. With a significant portfolio of more than 230 million square feet comprised of more than 60,000 assets, the challenge facing AT&T when it comes to capital planning is daunting. While AT&T’s real estate portfolio is significant, many smaller organizations face the same challenges that AT&T faces – a competitive business environment, internal competition for capital funds, and incomplete data with which to make informed decisions.
Attendees will learn how a standardized data collection process allows facility professionals to get the data they need to make strategic capital funding decisions; detailed reporting based on objective data takes the guesswork out of which projects should take priority and lets facility professionals quantify and defend funding requests; and the right technology addresses the needs of organizations with large portfolios like AT&T, but the same benefits are available to smaller organizations.
This webinar is part of an ongoing series around the theme, “Deliver Strategic Value From Your Facilities Capital Investment.” The series features one webinar each month with speakers including industry leaders and rising stars in facilities management.
