Combining Top-Notch Engineering Document Management with Leading Facility and Asset Management and Geographical Databases to Drive Improved Operations and Boost Safety
Austin, TX, February 10, 2021 – Accruent, the leading provider of solutions to manage the built environment, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with GEOFIT, a global provider of geospatial databases for large-scale industrial and infrastructure projects, to deliver engineering document management and facility and asset management throughout France. In joining forces, these companies will provide a comprehensive, optimized system to enable organizations to manage their full lifecycle of physical resources.
According to the oft-cited study on human activity patterns, humans spend 90% of our time in the built environment. Focusing on the structures people work in, the technology used to manage those structures, and the assets and spaces people engage with every day, has a significant impact on our world’s health, safety and productivity.
The partnership of Accruent and GEOFIT will deliver exceptional, industry-leading solutions:
