An organization’s facilities are one of its most significant assets. Yet managing the wealth of information related to those facilities and their various building systems is an ongoing challenge, particularly for organizations. Data about value, condition, age, and function, as well as about maintenance and renewal needs, is often scattered across multiple locations and systems, creating islands of knowledge.
Capital planners may have limited insight into operational issues that could significantly impact planning requirements. Facility directors may be uncertain about how recently completed projects impact their annual funding requirements. Meanwhile, executives don’t have a clear picture of how spending on facilities supports organizational objectives over the long term.
VFA.facility® empowers your organization with a central source of facility information, accessible across the organization. It provides facility managers, capital planners, financial analysts and executives with tools to effectively manage and maintain that data and to leverage it in making optimal decisions about facility spending and capital planning.
