Making IOT Work for the Customer

Office Facilities 

The days of a Facility Manager are rarely boring. People’s expectations are high and there is a lot of complexity.

From ensuring that important statutory checks happen on time, managing contractor visits to the site including issuing Permit to Work, to dealing with helpdesk requests. Everyone expects an immediate response while hybrid working adds new complexity.

The Azolla IOT Sensor packs help support the Return to Work initiative using Occupancy Management sensors which can then allow you to implement On Demand Cleaning & Hot Desking. CO2 monitoring allows you to help reduce the sources of infection while paper and towel sensors in toilet areas help to promote hygiene levels. 

Why we are different

Azolla was built by Facilities Managers for Facilities Managers incorporating key functionality used to schedule both planned and reactive work, track contractor entry, adherence to Service Level Agreements (SLA) and report on all completed work. 

Azolla is designed to allow you to implement IOT sensor technology from the start. From tracking temperatures in a server room or leak detection in an office, Azolla allows you to track your building in real-time. Reactive work can also be routed to third-party contractors via email and responded to electronically, all in one place. This creates a full asset history, tracks the total cost of ownership and facilitates real-time reporting.

Concepts like Smart buildings become practical. With the Return to Work drive, this technology can be used to track occupancy levels allowing you to prioritise On Demand cleaning in areas where they are needed and not just on schedule. Soap, paper and towel sensors can monitor remote toilet and shower areas and schedule replenishment based on need. 

Asset failure can be monitored with leading detectors like power, temperature or vibration sensors. Each sensor can be linked to a different workflow, alerting the correct resource automatically, especially during ‘out of hours’. If this data sits within a Building Management System (BMS), then it can be integrated in, resolved and reported on in one system.  

What we do

Azolla was built by Facilities Managers for Facilities Managers. Technology serves best when it is understood by those creating it.

Scheduling & IOT

Azolla allows you to manage hard and soft planned maintenance activities using the scheduler. Contractor visits can scheduled via email ensuring the contractor is notified in advance.

Sensors can be linked to hard assets, monitoring performance and prompting early intervention if required.

On Demand Cleaning

On Demand cleaning brings a new level of cost efficiency and improvements in hygiene effectiveness. Using the Azolla IOT module the entire building can be monitored in real-time. From tracking area usage, and capturing IOT sensor data around area hygiene to automatically alerting cleaning staff. The entire process can be automated.

Occupancy Management & CO2

Using IOT Sensor technology to monitor room usage coupled with temperature and CO2 monitoring helps ensure everyone is kept comfortable and safe. Sensor data can be trended to ensure key assets are only used when needed and energy costs minimised.



Allow Staff to raise requests through a PC or Phone, automatically routing high priority requests to the correct FM team member. SLA management and the Azolla escalation engine ensures requests aren’t ignored and services levels adhered to. 

Health & Safety

Permits can be sent directly to the contractor with the acknowledgement and verification process occurring within email. Permits are linked to work orders, method statements can be attached and the administration approval process simplified.

Our Risk Assessment module allows risks to be identified, corrective actions to be issued and closed.

Supplier & Contractor Management

A complete register of Contractors & Suppliers can be stored on Azolla along with their corresponding documentation including insurances. 

Renewal notifications can be sent directly to the contractor for documentation due to expire while Suppliers can then log onto the Supplier portal to upload their documentation for review.

REturn on Investment

It is possible to lower costs by adopting best practice.

Moving to an On Demand cleaning model lowers costs by targeting resources where the need is most.

Occupancy Management allows you to plan resources around building usage as well as lower energy and catering costs.

A Planned Maintenance job is 3-5 Times More Expensive than an Unplanned Job. Costs are lowered by lower overtime and contractor call out charges. 

Using sensor technology to monitor equipment in real time lowers callout charges while allowing for earlier resolution of issues. 

  • On Demand Cleaning Model Lower Cleaning Costs by- 20%
  • Occupancy Management helps to lower Catering Costs -12%
  • Planned Maintenance Model lowers Overtime and Contractor Costs – 20%
  • Sensor Monitoring Lowers Call out charges by – 8%
