The Horizon platform is currently used by Network Rail in the UK and described by MRI as a "comprehensive, flexible and secure Software as a Service solution with IS0 27001 accreditation for its hosted component".

 

Under the terms of the FCO deployment, the software will be configured to provide lease management, accounting and compliance (IFRS 16), facilities management, health and safety compliance inspection, property condition inspection, forward maintenance bidding, asset registration, and property and asset valuation support.

 

St John Barton MRICS, Strategic Asset Manager at the FCO, says:

"The FCO provides a property platform including office and residential accommodation for all government operations overseas (OneHMG). The efficient and cost-effective management of our complex portfolio of properties around the world through the effective use of digital tools is critical to the operations of the FCO. Investing in and making the best use of technology is vital to achieving those aims."

 

Dermot Briody, MRI’s Executive Managing Director for Europe, says:

"We are delighted to have been selected by the FCO to provide the IWMS technology to support the management of its global holdings.

 

"Supporting government departments and other organisations to ensure they are able to effectively manage extensive property and asset portfolios is central to what Horizon delivers. As a leading solution for occupiers of multi-country property portfolios, Horizon enables collaboration and efficient practices for large teams spread across various geographies."
