Floor Based Cable Management Solutions

Facility Executive: What is a notable product or service that Connectrac is offering to facility management professionals in 2019?

Connectrac: [The company] provides facility professionals a floor based cable management solution that delivers power and data within a space without the need for core drilling, trenching, or power poles. Connectrac has become the standard to provide power and connectivity for the entire office space. Core drilling is the old standby and accepted way to deliver power and data to a space. However, this is not a flexible solution for today’s changing demands, but Connectrac is. Core drilling can hold up construction and cause disruption in and around the space, typically requiring extra time for approvals and the install, not to mention the fact that once core drills are in, there’s no changing them.
