Facilities Maintenance, Space Planning and Energy Management
Deferred maintenance totals are reaching record levels across education and government organizations.1 When do deteriorating conditions start to impact your organization’s mission?
Facilities professionals are often asked to do more with less. Money for repairs often falls down the budget priority list, leading conditions to deteriorate even further. In such a lean environment, things can break, leading to safety issues, unplanned downtime, and emergency repairs.
To overcome these challenges, facilities managers need to fully leverage technology to help keep everything working and everyone safe. They need a proven system that helps support the overall mission by providing visibility and control into all elements across their real estate and facilities portfolios.

It is a cloud-based facilities lifecycle management solution for public sector and education institutions that is easy to use, easy to implement and continuously updated with new functionality.
