ARCHIBUS V.22 Brings “Intelligent Advancements” to Enterprise Asset Management, Strategic Space Planning, Environmental, and Other Capabilities

ARCHIBUS, Inc., announces the latest release of ARCHIBUS software (Version 22). This release features many advances with an emphasis on cost-effective, comprehensive asset management at the individual, property, building, campus, city, community and enterprise levels for governmental, institutional and business organizations of all sizes.

In addition to the advances associated with mobile-enabled Asset Management and Enterprise Asset Management applications, ARCHIBUS has included Intelligent-Strategic Space Planning and Intelligent-Advanced Portfolio Forecasting applications, which improve management’s ability to accurately estimate future individual- and facilities-related requirements, improve capital planning, and reduce costs.

With this release, ARCHIBUS V.22 application advances provide the industry's most intelligent integrated solution for real estate, infrastructure and facility management automation.

As always, we are grateful to all of the users, user groups, and members of the ARCHIBUS global community who continue to generously share their time to enumerate their needs and business challenges.  We remain dedicated to providing the continual innovations that you need to succeed in this rapidly evolving industry.

Key Advancement Areas within the ARCHIBUS V.22 solution suite include:

Intelligent-Enterprise Asset Management

  • Enterprise Asset Management: A holistic end-to-end asset management system for organizations that need to coordinate their real estate, capital, and asset planning. This application features asset reconciliation and asset/project proposal capabilities using intelligent consoles for superior financial/asset management control, as well as ERP integration. (Enterprise Asset Management includes all of the functionality of the ARCHIBUS Asset Management application.)


Enterprise Asset Management
  • Asset Management: The application provides an integrated view of all assets, including properties, buildings, land, structures, equipment and furniture. It also supports the basic asset management tasks of acquiring, managing, and disposing of assets throughout their full operational lifecycle. The overall result is reduced legal, financial and operational risk. (Asset Management includes all of the functionality of the ARCHIBUS Asset Portal application.)


Asset Management

Intelligent-Strategic Space Planning

  • Strategic Space Planning: Delivers a Web-based solution that integrates, with greater ease of use, space planning with space budgeting and project capabilities. Portfolio planners can match/model space supply with space demand, given future expectations. For space planners, this application supports comparison and proposal of options for organizational moves based on specific events such as insourcing and lease changes.


Intelligent Strategic Space Planning

Intelligent-Advanced Portfolio Forecasting

  • Advanced Portfolio Forecasting: This application provides the capabilities needed for assessing baseline portfolio conditions, forecasting need, proposing alternative planning scenarios, and evaluating complex tradeoffs over the typical three- or five-year planning period.

 

Intelligent-Mobile Apps

  • Asset & Equipment Registration Mobile App: A convenient, highly portable app scans and accepts assets singly or in bulk while out in the field. It has features to avoid duplicate entry and to validate categorization in the asset and ownership hierarchies. It also speeds the work of staff at the loading dock or shipping room who accept assets and those in the field who register new building equipment, such as escalators and boilers.

    This mobile app allows users to add one or many equipment assets to the database using smartphone and tablet devices. Asset & Equipment Registration supports the auto-generation or use of barcode scanners for asset ID, and retrieval of last ID, Prefix, and Common Data with limited background syncing required.

  • Hazardous Materials Mobile App: A mobile app complementing the ARCHIBUS Hazardous Materials application that has evolved from a highly indexed document library into a true hazardous materials management system. It offers more advanced capabilities that include mobile inventory collection/verification and more detailed location tracking.
