Fall Trade Shows for Wizard Software

Wizard Software will be attending two shows in October, the IFMA World Workplace show and CMAA.

Construction Management Association of America is a relatively new addition to the schedule but it’s been a valuable show, especially in terms of networking.

Wizard Software has been attending IFMA’s (International Facility Management Association) for several years. This year, IFMA is being held in Denver, Colorado. The Construction Management Association show is being held in Orlando, Florida.

Wizard Software attends between 5 and 7 trade shows each year in the spring and fall.

APPA 2013: Wizards Visit Minneapolis

Wizard Software Solutions goes to APPA in Minneapolis, MN. Held at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, Wizard Software will be at booth #520 from August 2-4, 2013. The Association of Physical Plant Administrators (APPA) focuses on educational facilities and is a great place to get the latest on issues facing the education facilities industry.

Wizard Software has many valuable higher education customers such as Northwestern University, Stanford University, Macalester and Carleton College. Our IWMS software is tailored for people who manage and maintain large facilities, real property, capital projects and much more.

ASHE Annual Conference: Wizards Attend

This year the ASHE Annual Conference is in Atlanta, Georgia July 21-24, 2013. Wizard Software looks forward to showcasing their iPad and iPhone apps as well as our software applications—Performo, REportfolio and Projecto.

Visit us at both 134. We enjoy visiting  with current customers, and look forward to meeting new ones. The American Society for Health Care Engineering Annual Conference brings together owners, design teams, and other facilities management professionals. This year celebrates 50 years of education and networking for ASHE members and other industry individuals.

Spring in Maryland

Following the ASHE Conference, the NFMT show is in Baltimore, Maryland, March 12th to the 14th. At the National Facilities Management and Technology Conference, Wizard Software will be exhibiting at booth number 1223. We are very excited to be exhibiting our new and highly anticipated iPhone and iPad applications for our software solutions.

This is a large show and one of the most important ones on the trade show schedule. Like the ASHE PDC show it is an important gathering of different industry professionals, but instead of being focused on the healthcare industry it is more broadly facilities management which covers many different areas of business. As a premier competitor in the software and facilities management industries, Wizard Software works to stay at the forefront and to provide the latest and best in products and services for their clients.

IFMA’s World Workplace 2012

If you were unable to join us in Vegas, grab your favorite costume and spend Halloween with us at The International Facility Management Association’s World Workplace 2012 Conference & Expo. This year’s show is at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, 2012, in San Antonio, Texas.

IFMA’s World Workplace 2012 will focus on the next phase of “smart” facility management—leading change, driving innovation and advancing the business you support.

The impact and influence of strategic facility management on business success is escalating. Learn how to do more with less, make the most of existing buildings and meet increasing demands for future growth.

Stop by our booth, #334 on the exhibition floor, for a personal tour of the latest versions of Performo™, REportfolio™ and Projecto™ and “treat” yourself to a hands-on demo of our new iPad and iPhone apps.

Hello World!

Welcome to Wizard Watch from all of us here at Facility Wizard Software. In this space, we hope to provide some valuable insights into our software solutions, the customers that enjoy them, and the people that create them.

The Wizard

2009 presented all of us with a bunch of challenges. Nobody breezed through the past year. At the same time, this new economy has forced us to quickly learn a lot about our capabilities, strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities. We learned more about our ‘sweet spot’ – integrating simple-to-use software into the enterprise – and we made significant progress towards taking advantage of it.

2009 also brought more than 40 new organizations into the Facility Wizard world. Great corporations (Rackspace, Domino’s, Duke Energy), municipalities (Grapevine, Texas and St. Charles, Illinois), universities (University of St. Thomas and University of South Florida) and hospitals (Loma Linda University Medical Center and Simi Valley Hospital) all joined our community of users. Even the New Zealand Ministry of Social Development decided to reach halfway across the globe and start using our software.

We are very excited about 2010. We’re unveiling Wizard Watch as a regular tool for keeping you in tune with our newest developments, ideas, success stories, and the community of smart people that have become ‘fans’ of our software.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any ideas about how we can improve our products, continue to grow, and most importantly, keep making your life easier. Thanks again.

Dave Johnson, President & CEO
