FM:Systems Partners with AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions to Enhance FM:Mobile

Collaboration enables floor plan views, space and occupancy updates from mobile devices

RALEIGH, N.C. – August 1, 2012 – FM:Systems, a provider of integrated workplace management systems (IWMS) and computer-aided facility management (CAFM) software, and AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions, a leading CAD + CAFM software solutions firm offering best in class products and services, today announced a partnership to significantly enhance FM:Mobile, an application providing browser-based mobile access for the FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite.

FM:Mobile enhancements include a new user interface designed specifically for mobile views on the Apple® iPad® and iPhone® devices. New capabilities include the ability to create, lookup, edit and close work orders, view floor plan drawings and run reports, all while in the field.

FM:Mobile will be available later this year as a module for the FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite.

“AMS CAD + CAFM’s expertise in the development of mobile and facility management software has dramatically aided our development efforts,” said Gary Hollis, vice president of development at FM:Systems. “The work of facilities professionals isn’t done from behind a desk, so it’s important that we continue to add more functionality to FM:Mobile.”

A longtime FM:Systems certified business partner, AMS provides many FM:Systems customers with the technology and facility management expertise needed to operate large-scale, complex facilities.
