Accelerate service delivery with secure, real-time access to ARCHIBUS data from smart phones and tablets
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.
- Gives immediate access to graphical and non-graphical reports, forms, and views — anytime, anywhere — after initially connecting to a Wi-Fi, Internet, or cellular network
- Lowers the overall cost of providing a two-way exchange of information to/from a centralized repository to mobile-enabled personnel
- Supports hybrid mobile deployments, with an open-standard development environment for easy enhancement
- Supports semi-connected native mobile apps to ensure work continuity and productivity even when there is no connection available
ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework Apps provide instant access to workflows and accelerated responsiveness to customer needs
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 that puts facilities teams, literally and figuratively, on the same page.
- 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
Economical, Bi-Directional Data Exchange Increases Productivity
Saving both time and the cost of traveling to and from an office to collect work orders, etc., ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework Apps make the exchange of space, floor plan and other information accurate, instantaneous, and indispensable. Just as important, it replaces paper- based reporting with electronic forms that transmit data directly to a central repository, eliminating misplaced files and associated delays in retrieving them.
- Accelerate projects by accessing needed data and services at anytime, anywhere they are needed, from any standard device
- Enhance work-team coordination, internal customer satisfaction, and work cost chargeback
- Improve accuracy of location information for first responders to mitigate risk and associated costs
- Speed collection of data in the field and eliminate redundant data entry and unnecessary trips back to the central office
Apps for Core Mobile Capabilities
The ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework extends the existing Web Central application business logic to field personnel who need mobile access to ARCHIBUS data. It utilizes the work flow, validation, and data already defined in Web Central to enable location-based information access and creation. They include:
- Space Book App: Provides all facilities staff with quick and easy access to key building data and drawings on their mobile devices and also enables them to conduct paperless space surveys
- Maintenance App: Facilitates updating and completing work while in the field and also enhances the quality and accuracy of the information
- 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
Semi-Connected App Support and More
The ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework provides a cost- effective, flexible infrastructure to simplify work processes and minimize the use of error-prone printouts and written notes.
- The ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework supports semi-connected native mobile apps to ensure work continuity and productivity even when there is no Internet connection available
- Supports a “bring your own device” (BYOD) strategy; easy to configure based on existing security, business logic, data sets
- Integrates mobile connectivity seamlessly with IT enterprise mobile governance policies conforming to pre-existing work processes using ARCHIBUS
