biix is a response to the Building Information Explosion
What we see happening in social media, email and search tasks is a microcosm of what’s happening inside the built environment.
We’ve been measuring the increase of information in buildings for years.
Information in buildings continues to explode.
We have been measuring the composition of information in buildings since 2009.
The Next-Generation Worker is the largest key area of growth value and need.
“Cities, such as Los Angeles, are making collaboration tools a key element of their digital strategies… These new ways of working can improve productivity by two to three hours per employee per day. Even bigger gains come through using mobile collaboration to solve specific challenges.” - Cisco PDF
Buildings NEED Highly Mobile Workflows
WHY DOES biix ADVOCATE MOBILE?
By 2025, an average connected person anywhere in the world will interact with connected devices nearly 4,800 times per day – basically one interaction every 18 seconds. (Source: International Data Corporation IDC)

Our search engine is fearless.
We provide many ways to find the same piece of information. Traditional searches for information in buildings have always been based on the document being in one, and only one, location. Which meant you only had one way to find it. And it was rarely accessible via mobile.
biix provides many ways to get to the same information or document. We sort and organize by:
Owner, Campus, Building, Floor, etc.
Life Cycle Phases
Types (mechanical, electrical, etc.)
Virtual tours/Building Guru
Document storage systems
We’ve standardized what has historically been an impossible task to standardize.
And we believe biix is something Smart Buildings and Smart Enterprises need.
