Spacewell has announced a major Q4 2020 upgrade of its MCS Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS). The 2020 update – featuring a unified user interface design and cohesive user experience across devices – empowers organizations to leverage the opportunities of agile workplaces and helps them smarten up facility services and building management.

MCS will be available in two flavours: MCS 20 and MCS ONE.

MCS 20 is the next big update to the current MCS 18 version. MCS 20 will help people be more productive, with a personal and intuitive experience that works across all their devices. MCS 20 is a next-generation IWMS designed to empower its users to do their best work, and to interact closely with the building, its occupants and the services provided. MCS 20 is available as on-premise or cloud-hosted software.

MCS ONE is Spacewell’s cloud-based version of MCS 20, delivered in a SaaS model. All clients using MCS ONE will share the same environment and functionality, with frequent, incremental updates happening automatically for all clients at the same time. MCS ONE will provide the same functionality as MCS 20 at the date of launch. With its dual offering of MCS ONE and Axxerion workflow-based property and facility management software, Spacewell is aligned with the growing market preference for SaaS solutions.

“With the 2020 MCS release, Spacewell continues to raise the bar for IWMS platforms,” said Eric Van Bael, CEO at Spacewell. “By embedding BIM data into IWMS and connecting with the IoT to collect data about operations and building utilization, MCS 20 extends the value of BIM beyond design and construction and opens the way to create digital twins that help owners and project teams leverage intelligence throughout the building life cycle.”
