Welcome to this month's Intellis Newsletter, where we delve into the trends and insights shaping the facility management world today.
Higher education facilities play a crucial role in shaping the future of our society. They provide students a platform to learn, grow, and build their careers. However, maintaining these facilities can take time and effort, particularly regarding aging buildings.
Our number 1 goal is to provide our clients and partners with high-quality software solutions and expert customer service that empowers college and university facility leaders and capital planners to do their jobs with greater efficiency.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a staggering impact across the globe. Life has been disrupted as hundreds of thousands battle the disease and millions more do their part to flatten the curve.

Empowering colleges and universities with innovative strategies and solutions that make collecting data for facility condition assessments and developing justifiable capital plans a whole lot easier is our mission.
As of Monday March 16 many public and private schools across the nation have now been closed. And the situation is continuing to change. School closures, self-quarantine, social distancing and tough decisions including cancelled meetings and other in-person events have become essential to help 'flatten the curve', slowing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and helping to ensure that key healthcare facilities do not become overburdened. While these are not the easiest decisions, they can help slowdown the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of all of students and staff is always a top priority for K12 Schools as well as Colleges and Universities, and it is now more than ever in the wake of the evolving global situation around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We encourage everyone to listen to facts and not respond to fear, and we have provided a list of resources at the end of this article.
