INCREASE VISIBILITY AND MAKE BETTER DECISIONS WITH UP-TO-DATE DATA

VFA.auditor helps organizations get the most out of VFA’s Capital Planning approach by ensuring that facility data remains up-to-date. That process usually starts with a re-assessment of previously reported facility deficiencies (VFA System Requirements). VFA.auditor lets users view and update existing requirement data, improving the accuracy of facility benchmarks (such as the Facility Condition Index), and making sure the right problems are captured and prioritized.

  • Quickly confirm and edit requirement priority
  • Review existing requirement data while in the field
  • Update both standard and system renewal requirements
  • Close requirement if work has been completed
WHAT VFA CLIENTS SAY

“Before VFA.auditor, if we weren’t actively doing work on or in a building, we had no insight into the condition of the building since its last assessment… Questions from management were difficult to answer because we had to acknowledge that reports were based on outdated data. VFA.auditor has enabled my team and our management to regain confidence in the data.”

QUICKLY IDENTIFY POTENTIAL PROBLEMS AND PRIORITIZE ACTIONS

VFA.auditor lets you quickly pinpoint “hotspots” - potential problem areas - within the portfolio. Use this information to uncover what needs immediate attention or to target assets that require more detailed facility condition assessments.

  • Ability to select multiple systems for copy or deletion
  • Uniformat based category filter and keyword search helps users find the right systems
