Kinetic and AssetWorks partner to deliver integrated management for accommodation and facilities in higher education.
Kinetic and AssetWorks are delighted to announce a new strategic partnership, under which the two companies will collaborate to improve accommodation, event, estates and facilities management for higher education bodies on both sides of the Atlantic.
Kinetic has over 20 years’ experience partnering with world-leading universities and colleges to provide event management and student accommodation software. Supplying this mission-critical functionality to over 350 customers worldwide, Kinetic helps university accommodation and conferencing teams deliver world-leading student and customer experiences.
Like Kinetic, AssetWorks sits under the Volaris Group umbrella, and is an integrated solutions provider focused on estates and facilities management for higher education, with particular focus on offering IWMS (Integrated Workplace Management Solutions). It provides a single unified platform that encompasses space management, asset life cycles, preventative maintenance, capital planning, construction project management, and much more. AssetWorks have developed its solutions over more than 30 years, and continuously innovates to serve the changing needs of higher education bodies.
Under the new partnership, Kinetic and AssetWorks will explore synergies in how accommodation, estate and facilities management can be served. In particular, the two companies will focus on consistency of information and the elimination of data duplication, so that holistic decisions can be made on reliable data. Furthermore, the partnership intends to bring together work management functions, so that student accommodation organisations can get easier and more direct access to specialised trades personnel when maintenance and repairs are needed.
