Archibus Provides the Data, Tools and Intelligence to Optimize Your Space Strategy
It’s no secret that space is expensive, but misused space not only leads to overblown property portfolios, it impacts your organizational mission. Spaces shape the activities we do within them, from office productivity to campus learning, or hospitals maximizing government reimbursements. Whether you need to consolidate real estate, improve forecasting and planning, or create an innovative workplace, ARCHIBUS applications align your space strategy with your mission.
10 Benefits to Using Archibus Space Management Software
1. Shrink real estate footprint
Consolidate space use to consolidate your property portfolio. Track every space and every occupant across your entire portfolio to optimize your real estate strategy.
2. Enhance accountability with chargebacks
Calculate the cost of every space in your organization and charge it back to departments, holding them accountable for every space they use.
3. Forecast needs with scenario planning
Plan for future needs by visualizing scenarios that reflect the future state of your leases and total occupancy. Test different space and occupancy scenarios until you find the ideal solution.
4. Transform the workplace with shared team space
Design different shared space types for different types of workflow, and track them with capacity models. Automate desk reservations with hoteling.
5. Increase building capacity with innovative space use
Increase capacity by consolidating space, convert space into denser seating, or creating innovative team space for partially remote staff that don’t need a permanent desk.
6. Visualize space use and needs
Access all of your space data through interactive floorplans, switching views to cleanly evaluate area, space type, cost, and occupancy data. Integrate with 2D and 3D modeling.
7. Track trends, identify outliers
See how space use evolves over time with KPI dashboards. Compare and evaluate space use by department, division, business unit, and other functional groups
8. Track teams and personnel
Easily see where departments, teams and staff are located. Click on a space to see how it has been assigned, track staff with a search filter.
9. Automate reservations and hoteling
Automate reservations of common areas (conference rooms, community centers, etc), and create a transparent hoteling system for workstations.
10. Integrate with Real Estate and Building Operations
Integrate all of your space data with ARCHIBUS Real Estate Management for a centralized view of leases alongside space use. Integrate with Building Operations to optimize the time, cost, and labor of maintenance.
How Each Application Targets Your Goals

- Sort and define floorplans in a clean inventory tree
- Navigate space data with interactive maps and floorplans
- Access area measurements at your fingertips
- Filter total area by site, building, floor, department, or team
- Integrate with a variety of drawing technologies such as AutoCAD and Revit to publish drawings
Personnel & Occupancy
Track People, Optimize Space Use Avoid wasted space and optimize occupancy by tracking space usage and simplifying how space is assigned to people and teams. Create shared team spaces to enhance capacity. Key Benefits
- Locate occupants quickly through interactive floorplans, occupant trees, and a search function
- Optimize space use with occupancy metrics that identify overcrowded or vacant spaces
- Set benchmarks for ideal occupancy ratios, and measure against actual occupancy metrics
- Transform workplace with team space to enhance collaboration and capacity
Track Costs, Enhance Accountability Consolidate space and optimize your real estate footprint by charging departments and teams for the space that they use. Key Benefits:
- Calculate the cost of space by square foot or square meter
- Filter space costs by department, team, site, building, floor, or room type
- Split costs between teams/departments for shared and common areas
- Quickly generate accurate chargeback reports
Strategic Space Planning
Forecast Needs, Test Future Scenarios Leverage space, cost, and occupancy data from the applications above, along with lease data, through a visual sandbox for space scenario planning. Forecast needs, test solutions, and identify the most successful strategy for your organization. Key Benefits:
- Evaluate hypothetical space scenarios with detailed data on personnel, space types, cost, and area
- Visualize occupancy and space assignments by dragging and dropping space allocation blocks between floors and between buildings
- Gather space requirements and visualize those requirements as events in a stacking plan
- Evaluate how plans impact costs and occupancy, with key performance metrics
- Incorporate lease data by integrating with ARCHIBUS Real Estate Portfolio Management
