ATLANTA, GA — Johnson Controls, Inc., launched its e-business portal solution to the U.S. real estate market on May 15 at the International Development Research Council (IDRC) Tech Fair in Seattle, WA.

The portal design, called “Bosmart,” integrates off-the-shelf portfolio management applications with communication and reporting tools to create a platform where a corporate real estate team and an outsourcing partner can work with more collaboration.

According to Johnson Controls, Bosmart integrates applications into a one-screen view and gives the end user ready access to critical facility management data. Key applications on the first release of Bosmart include: Johnson Controls Global Best Practices Database, Web-enabled computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS), and a Web-based facility service request program. The first release will also feature report writing capabilities that draw information from disparate enterprises’ software applications to derive more precise operational data.

Subsequent releases of Bosmart will offer Web-based critical facility management tools, benchmarking capabilities, and financial reporting applications. The second release will be available to the facility management marketplace in early fall of this year, the company says.
