BuildingIQ Upgrades Facility Worksite to Streamline Operational Tasks
SaaS Solution Closes the Loop on Issue Diagnosis, Ticketing, Triage and Validation with Energy-based Actionable Insights
SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 21, 2017 – BuildingIQ (ASX: BIQ) today introduces significant upgrades to Facility Worksite, a SaaS solution. Facility Worksite can be purchased as a stand-alone service or can fully integrate into BuildingIQ’s 5i intelligent energy management platform to provide a central online portal that allows users to create, manage and report on maintenance tasks. Currently used to manage approximately 16,000 work orders per month, users will now experience a fresh, uniform interface with the same look and feel as the company’s 5i platform. Users will also have the ability to use Facility Worksite for validating actions and adopt energy optimization services available from BuildingIQ. For new users, Facility Worksite will now be available in scalable subscription options giving users the ability to pick the choice that works best for them.
“BuildingIQ’s Facility Worksite service helps us manage nearly 10,000 work orders a year from creation to validation, spread across the 1,500 different vendors we work with.” said David Bergstrom, COO of Wellington Management, a property management company overseeing more than 100 separate locations in Minnesota. “This technology-enabled service has become an integral tool for us, allowing our organization to easily perform and measure repair activities. The ability to access the platform from any Internet-connected device perfectly suits the hectic schedule of our team and helps them to get their work done quickly and efficiently.”
BuildingIQ’s 5i platform provides customers with 24/7 oversight and analytics. Facility Worksite can serve as a binding agent amongst the component services that are combined into client solutions built on the 5i platform. For instance, it serves as both a triggering and escalation tool for energy anomalies found by BuildingIQ’s network operations center (NOC). In addition to escalations and triage functionality, Facility Worksite helps ensure that completed work is validated —both from the perspective of physical completion and its impact on energy usage— to complete the analyze-diagnose-fix-validate loop essential to facility teams.
“Facility Worksite is an invaluable tool for organizations of any size, from an individual user to an entire enterprise with facilities that span multiple locations,” said Michael Nark, president and CEO of BuildingIQ. “Integrating our services into solutions that can evolve transparently with our customers’ needs is a key driver in our decision to develop services that sit on our 5i platform. Facility Worksite is becoming the ‘glue’ that binds our services together by facilitating transparency in actions between our network operations center and our customers’ facilities teams.”
Facility Worksite features directed notifications and the ability to see the status of all activities, which can range from plumbing to HVAC and any other task that falls under a facilities manger’s purview. Built-in preventative maintenance and asset management mean that virtually any task can be created and tracked within Facility Worksite. The Facility Worksite SaaS further includes configurable escalations, user-based permissions, and automatic routing to ensure that actionable insights are addressed.
The new subscription offerings are divided into Basic and Complete packages. The complete package features asset management and the automated generation and scheduling of preventative maintenance tasks. The two packages are available at the Small Business, Medium Business, and Enterprise levels:
- Small Business: Perfect for one or a small number of sites overseen by a single, small team
- Medium Business: Suited for a medium-sized organization with more sites, possibly spread across a region, overseen by many people on one or more teams
- Enterprise: For the management of unlimited sites across many regions, overseen by a large number of people, usually on different teams
Facility Worksite is available from BuildingIQ sales directly; and for U.S. customers only, online at www.buildingiq.com/shop. For more information on Facility Worksite, visit www.buildingiq.com/products/visualization/#facility-worksite.
