New ARCHIBUS V.23.2 Expands Compliance, Moves from Operations to Strategy

ARCHIBUS V23.2 bolsters and expands the innovations of V.23.1, further aligning operational functions towards overarching strategic goals so that your organization can function more efficiently as a whole.

The new version features a sweeping range of upgrades, with a prominent trend towards deepening compliance, so you can effectively link regulatory requirements to operational and verification actions. New capabilities were also added to help you record and track outsourced work and contracts.

Another key trend in this latest iteration is a refinement of our UI integration and its ability to control key management aspects with user-friendly consoles. The consoles for energy management, PM planning, and Labor planning were redesigned to tighten the reporting process that links strategic planning to employees and contractors, in both directions. This way, every layer of your organization can move in a consistent mode.

While ARCHIBUS V.23.2 is extensive, improvements focus on three key areas:

  • Enhanced compliance
  • Expanded capabilities
  • More interactive and intuitive user-experience


PM Planner

Here are a few key highlights that you can expect:

Enhanced Compliance

  • Manage outsourced contracts for compliance with Compliance Contract Manager, and verify compliance with personalized surveys.
  • Get ahead of the curve; conform to significant new lease accounting regulations

Expanded Capabilities

  • Streamline your move process by integrating moves with strategic space planning
  • Use enhanced asset reporting to track assets by exception and follow their chain-of-custody (with ISO55000 framework)


Utility Analysis Console

Enhanced User Interface

  • Switch instantly between 2D and 3D BIM, and streamline BIM model approval
  • Top-view of utilities with new Utilities Analysis Console
  • Improve your tracking and scheduling of preventive maintenance services and labor management with the new PM Planner and Labor Scheduler consoles

Philadelphia Streamlines an Entire School District with ARCHIBUS


The Challenge

The School District of Philadelphia is the 8th largest in the US, encompassing a massive and complex array of assets and stakeholders. The district includes approximately 130,000 students, 300+ buildings,1400 acres of land, and 29M sqft of space, all maintained by approximately 1300 cleaning and building staff, 230 mechanics, and 200 Building Engineers. The district is also one of the country’s oldest, with an average building age of 67 years old, including many buildings whose lifespan began over a century ago, with systems of varying ages.


In 2015, outdated processes and fragmented data were creating a significant drag in operations. It was time for the school district to centralize onto a single system through which to coordinate across departments, including the maintenance, operations, capital programs, food and service, transportation, and environmental departments.

The Implementation

The goal was to have a single source of data where all stakeholders could work with the same clean data to track the history, needs, workflow, and resources of the school district’s many assets. By streamlining operations through a single repository of data, the School District of Philadelphia hoped to employ smarter and leaner strategies for meeting its goals.

In December 2015, the school district began centralizing data and operations on ARCHIBUS. Records were cleaned and digitized, data was sorted, and 22 applications were implemented, with varying degrees of personalization to suite specific needs. The project was expansive, and made differences in several key areas.

More Exciting Online ARCHIBUS Training Ahead

Join an online training course to deepen your software fluency and get more value out of ARCHIBUS.

Our web-based training is part of our broader Online Learning Initiative to make training more accessible to those who cannot attend classes in person due to time and travel constraints.

We offer two types of courses: “web-based courses” and “virtual classrooms.” The web-based courses are a series of 2-hour WebEx sessions scheduled across multiple weeks, while the virtual classrooms allow learners to participate in live, in-person courses via the web. Both courses give access to an interactive online training environment, including live question and answer periods with the instructor.

Following the success of our initial sessions, additional courses have been available online this year:

Review all courses to find the training course that’s right for you.
