What is Computer Aided Facility Management?

Facilio CAFM software helps you effortlessly manage and maintain multi-site facilities with real-time insights into your facility operations and maintenance across the portfolio.

Introduction

Modern CAFM systems tend to be rigid and require a separate team of operators to handle operations that often include multiple touchpoints. This extreme rigidity of a large scale system along with unconfigurable components puts both the Facility Managers and tenants in a blindspot.

Information is scattered and lacks context concerning asset health, past maintenance history, cost, associated tools, and cost at a portfolio level. This lack of data makes it harder to coordinate any repair or maintenance effort within SLA. Current FM solutions have limited their feature innovation within this ecosystem of siloed operations that fail to solve the core problem of interconnectivity and efficiency. That's why we at Facilio have reimagined Facility Management as an ecosystem of seamlessly connected and aligned operations that brings about context and efficiency.

With a complete O&M platform like Facilio, you can now monitor, manage, and optimize all aspects of facility management activities proactively. The whole process of facility maintenance and management is made seamless for the facility managers who find operation decisions, keeping track of SLAs, and critical metrics more accessible. The ground level staffs and technicians also benefit through a unified-maintenance mobile app, QR-code enabled asset tracking, unified help desk, and more.

Overview

Facilio set out to make the lives of Facility Management professionals easier and has managed to evolve as the most contemporary solution of our times. Inventions such as IoT, Machine Learning, and prediction have provided us with a way to reimagine this sector and leverage the in-depth knowledge of the industry into actionable and intuitive solutions to deliver a delightful tenant experience.

An average human spends about 30% of their lifetime at work or a commercial establishment, and modern facility managers are the ones who ensure we have a safe and happy experience at that time. However, these professionals, for far too long, have been limited by archaic technology that has failed to catch up with the times and make their lives more comfortable than it could be.

They still suffer from rigid, siloed systems and paper-based filing that impacts them from delivering a happy tenant experience. One of the core problems of seemingly modern CAFM solutions seems to be the rigidity of their workflow and no ability to integrate multiple sources of information. Since Facility managers have invested in these large scale systems, they are in a catch 22 situation where they are neither able to leverage nor abandon them. That's why Facilio has built an O&M platform that is completely dynamic and can seamlessly integrate with existing third-party systems as a smart overlay. This way, enterprises can harness and uncover insights and context from existing data siloed within the Operations infrastructure.

As a complete Operation and Maintenance platform, Facilio is built to provide comprehensive dynamic utility. It can configure and match every workflow accordingly to the requirements of a facility. It connects with every other existing system, including energy management systems, building management, and critical automation systems such as elevator, fire-safety, security, and more. Facilio also integrates with ORACLE, SAP, and portfolio-wide ERPs, accounting systems.
