ARCHIBUS Success Story

Amgen, Inc.

Amgen selected ARCHIBUS "for its predefined schema, flexibility, and compatibility with AutoCAD." The company was experiencing rapid expansion, particularly with the acquisition of Synergen in Boulder, CO. Several scientists needed to be moved to Amgen's headquarters in Thousand Oaks, CA. Several others needed to be moved to Boulder. Relocating staff and reconfiguring space have been greatly facilitated by the CAFM system. Maintaining the system in the face of a 30% churn rate has been simplified by having human resources information downloaded automatically into the ARCHIBUS database.Amgen selected ARCHIBUS "for its predefined schema, flexibility, and compatibility with AutoCAD."
