Before FM:Interact critical information needed to accurately and efficiently allocate, consolidate, manage and maintain space lived in various shadow systems across the enterprise–from the
Registrar’s office to the Provost of the Medical University–across campuses and across the globe. Using long institutionalized systems like Excel, Aperture, CAD, PDFs, and SAP for Financials, data for strategic planning had to be cobbled together from disjointed sources, which was time consuming, inefficient and often inconsistent.
After an extensive, 2 year procurement process, the University chose FM:Interact because it exceeded these baseline requirements for a robust, easy to use Space Management system that could deliver the analytics needed to improve business processes and enhance planning.
Benefits of the system included:
- Bringing people & knowledge together
- Facilitating the accreditation process
- Improving the allocation of resources
- Supporting values of sustainability & energy efficiency
