Case Studies & White Papers

Today, organizations face numerous challenges in using the vast array of facilities data to gain a complete understanding of portfolio performance. As a result, the desired business intelligence is not available to make informed decisions and ensure optimum performance. This white paper will highlight Enterprise geospatial information systems (EGIS) and how they may be used as a comprehensive solution to gain the insights facilities managers need for more effective decision-making.

This article will provide an overview of the options for performing facility condition assessments. Quite often, the facility manager will choose a condition assessment method without deliberate examination of what type of assessment is best suited to the needs of the organization. In addition,
the needs of diverse audiences usually differ—for example, the vice president for finance will have information needs that differ from those of the facility manager. This discussion will cover a review of the basic reasons to assess, the methods, and a comparison of the output of each method.

Businesses are increasingly turning to geographic information systems (GIS) to manage and use facilities information to make decisions. Nearly all facilities information relates to a location in a map or floor plan. For example, cost centers, room assignments or classifications, hazardous materials locations, and fire and life safety information make most sense when viewed in geographic form. A geographic representation of data is much more powerful than tabular form. It shows valuable spatial relationships that are otherwise not easily communicated. When presented in GIS, understanding spatial relationships becomes intuitive.

R&K's Geospatial Real and Personal Property Management (GoRPM) implementation for a private research university in Massachusetts integrates data for over 800 buildings and more than 8,000 projects for visualization, analysis, and reporting.

Carilion Clinic maximized its return on investment by implementing GoRPM, R&K’s enterprise geospatial real and personal property and facilities management software, as a comprehensive strategic planning solution. As a result, Carilion Clinic consolidated its facilities data in a single platform, providing valuable visualizations of data in maps and floor plans while streamlining and speeding access and analysis of data. Data analysis and key performance indicators are readily available. GoRPM enabled the large healthcare provider to better manage its facilities operations, identify cost saving opportunities and inform its decision making across the organization, providing value to all facilities stakeholders, from the technician in the field to the C-suite.
