Software such as IWMS, (Integrated Work Management System) and CMMS, (Computerised Maintenance Management System) is invaluable to Corporate Real Estate and Facilities Departments striving for greater efficiencies and cost reductions while maintaining quality services and reducing risk.
CMMS, (sometimes referred to as Enterprise Asset Management or EAM), concentrates mainly on asset maintenance but the more flexible systems can handle a broader range of work management tasks. IWMS, on the other hand, generally includes more functionality of relevance to facilities management in its wider context and many include functionality specific to real estate operations.
P&A offers a range of services covering every stage in the lifecycle of IWMS and CMMS:
Business requirements analysis and process optimization
Identification, selection & procurement of appropriate systems
Definition of master reference data
System configuration and implementation
Report and dashboard design
One delivery mechanism gaining in popularity is SaaS, (Software as a Service). Most often associated with supplier-hosted, web-enabled software, SaaS charges a monthly, all-inclusive fee per user. P&A can offer SaaS solutions supported by an implementation service which helps achieve effective use of the system in the shortest possible time.
