Facilities Managers have to know everything about their buildings, from when and how it was built, to the inspections it passed, problems that were fixed, upgrades that were made, and tenant improvements that have taken place over the lifespan of the structure.
Thousands of documents have to be maintained, updated, and kept easily accessible. They are the life blood for facilities maintenance.
Yet facilities managers are often faced with significant document control challenges:
As an industry specialist in managing documents and information to facilitate better communication in the design and building trades, ARC has a unique perspective on creating efficient methods of document control for the built environment.
The result is ARC’s Facilities Information Management (FIM) solution which organizes and links critical operations documents in a central repository and making them accessible on mobile devices, large touchscreen displays, and computers.
Paper documents of all kinds and sizes are converted to digital files, organized, and incorporated into a simple-to-use graphical interface. This includes documents from virtually any source such as construction drawings, maintenance logs, equipment lists, warranties, O&M manuals, safety plans, inspection reports, audits, and safety plans.
The resulting cloud and mobile-enabled dashboard provides a portable and comprehensive information system that makes finding and using facilities documents quick and easy from any location.
Simply put, FIM enhances workflow efficiency and team productivity. With tap/swipe/pinch simplicity on a mobile device, or point-and-click familiarity on a computer, owner-operators of any real estate asset can easily deploy a linked and customized library of operating documents that:
inform operating and business decisions
While facilities managers often work in the background, they have to keep track of a lot of information no matter what they’re doing or where they are. With ARC’s Facilities Information Management solution, they can stay on the go with more efficiency, more confidence in the information they use, and keep their buildings up-to-date, comfortable, and safe.
