FSI and Excitech add space and BIM to CAFM range
Excitech's FM offering has been added to FSI's CAFM range, providing Space and Move Management functionalities as part of the latter's Concept Evolution platform
Facilities management (FM) software manufacturer FSI announced it has teamed up with construction technology provider Excitech to incorporate space and building information modelling (BIM) modules to the former's platform.
Excitech's FM offering has been added to FSI's computer aided FM (CAFM) range, providing Space and Move Management functionalities as part of FSI's Concept Evolution platform.
The integration is expected to boost web-enablement; data management and configuration based on sectors and user needs; speed of asset data collection; and BIM compliancy to maximise data-rich models.
Floor plans and space data can be accessed through standard web browsers following the integration.
Spatial data and the ability to update it may now be delivered to a much wider audience, ensuring accuracy and overall cost-effectiveness.
Remarking on the integration, Adrian Jarvis, general manager of FSI Middle East said: "Running office space is one of an organisation’s highest operating costs.
"The integration of Excitech FM, Excitech’s Space and Move Management solution, with the Concept Evolution product suite, reduces this cost, and allows users to manage complex responsibilities such as moves/relocations, organisational restructures, agile working, mission-critical projects, and even heat-mapping for occupation.
"The integration removes the need to maintain two different solutions for common data; for example, when buildings, floors, locations, contacts, departments and assets are changed on the floor plans in AutoCAD, Excitech FM synchronises the changes into Concept Evolution.
"Organisations will therefore have full control of their space, for reacting quickly to, and reporting accurately on the amount of space they have," Jarvis added.
