Facility professionals can integrate BIM data to manage space and maintenance

RALEIGH, N.C. – August 30, 2011 – FM:Systems, a leading provider of integrated workplace management systems (IWMS) and computer-aided facility management (CAFM) software, today announced continued global expansion, signing on partners Precision Design Solutions in Malaysia, Geomap GIS America in Montreal, PX Engineering in Norway and Crown Systems in Singapore. This comes on the heels of FM:Systems’ recent partnership with Shanghai, China-based FacilityOne.

As Autodesk’s Preferred Industry Partner for facilities management, FM:Systems offers a direct integration with Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software from its FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite. By partnering with FM:Systems, Precision Design Solution, Geomap GIS America, PX Engineering and Crown Systems enable their customers to connect building information modeling (BIM) data from the design, construction and renovation phases of a building’s lifecycle to the facility management and operations phases – Lifecycle BIM. This improves communication and collaboration between stakeholders as a building evolves.

“Our customers are just beginning to understand the value of adding BIM data into their facility management strategy,” says Stéphane Fioretti, sales manager from Geomap GIS America. “We are excited about the opportunities we can bring to them through our partnership with FM:Systems. ”

“BIM is rapidly transforming the building industry the world over,” said Kurt von Koch, vice president of sales for FM:Systems. “Our solutions enable our partners and customers to navigate through the building lifecycle, creating and managing projects more efficiently and precisely with less environmental impact.”
