Better service delivery increasingly means faster and more accurate service delivery, a goal now made practical through implementation of the latest mobile technology.
Included in Web Central V.21, the Archibus Mobile Framework delivers a new breed of secure, easily configurable, and customer-responsive apps, providing accurate facilities information when and where it is needed. Archibus creates mobile apps once which will run on a variety of late model, high-end mobile devices. And, new technology makes your data — including photos, campus plans, and floor plans — interactive, so that any authorized user can quickly locate spaces, people, assets, and tasks.

• Maintenance App: Facilitates updating and completing work while in the field and also enhances the quality and accuracy of the information
• Asset Registration App: Scans and accepts assets singly or in bulk at the loading dock or shipping room
• Asset & Equipment Survey App: Supports creating and maintaining an asset inventory; completing work in the field to enhance the quality and accuracy of information
• Incidents Reporting App: Captures and reports on environmental, health and safety incidents and details
• Workplace Services Portal App: Supports request intake and processing for room reservations, A/V needs, etc.
• Space & Occupancy Survey App: Facilitates verification of space allocation, employee location and much more
• Mobile Executive Reports App: Generates metrics, alerts, and summary reports in the field
• Hazardous Materials App: Find the location of hazardous materials through graphical building, floor, and room drill-downs, edit inventory and more

 

Anywhere-Access to Graphical and Non-Graphical Reports

Archibus easily delivers graphical data the way your organization needs it. You can, for example, publish floor plans directly from within AutoCAD that then can be viewed in mobile devices. That means you can see floor plans, photos, forms and other graphical data with the same accessibility and clarity that users would expect if they were sitting at their desks. These capabilities make Archibus mobile apps a better way to share graphical and non-graphical information.
• Make presentations more effective and discussions more productive with space plans at your fingertips
• Create and post enterprise graphics on all your floor plans with just one click
• Publish, in a single action, allocation and vacancy highlights to the Space Book
• Take highlighted and labeled floor plans anywhere — even where there is no Wi-Fi connection
• Transfer images, such as photographs of building conditions, using the mobile apps synchronization feature
