Facilities GIS is a Unifying Technology Platform for Facility Management
Facilities are mission critical for any organization. From military bases to hospitals, schools, office buildings, and government buildings, your organization cannot function unless your facilities are open for business. But they are costly: facilities-related costs are typically the second largest expense of most organizations right behind salaries and wages.
Facility Management: An Information Intensive Business
The information a facility manager needs in order to obtain a holistic understanding of how the portfolio is performing is likely to come from a variety of disparate enterprise information systems. Space assignment, lease financials, asset and work management, energy consumption, physical plant operations, environmental health and safety, and security operations all have intensive information needs that are being served by many different systems. To tie all these various information sources together into a single comprehensive view of the portfolio, facility managers are increasingly turning to GIS (geographic information system) as a unifying technology platform.
Link Your Data Sources & Business Systems
The InVision data framework links your data sources and business systems together. Suddenly you can see how things interact and intersect in one place, as they do in the real world—from indoor space allocations and outdoor site maps, to maintenance schedules and service request workflows, energy usage data, leasing schedules and more. As InVision Foundation aggregates information from multiple sources, it acts as a lens to bring focus to any aspect of your portfolio, facility, and safety and security data, informing essential decisions throughout the facility lifecycle.
