A brief update on our BIM offering within MainManager. We are still looking for partners to get involved with our case study implementations. Do you have a BIM project coming up or just about to break ground? If so, give us a call to see how MainManager can help. Here's a short video of where we are at present. As you will see, we are able to allow clients to interact directly through the model.
There's still plenty of development going on but, we think that feedback from potential users would be extremely valuable. How would you like to get involved? What do you need a viewer to do for your FM team?
If you are an established FM and already have an expensive CAFM system in place, you are unlikely to look for a mobile option if your provider doesn't already have a solution. However; there are an increasing number of quality app developers who (given the right permissions) will be able to link to your back end database and provide you with a mobile option.
Here at FM180 we are pragmatic about this. We have a mobile solution for our core application, MainManager which we believe is second to none. Unfortunately, if you have a system from another CAFM software house, you can't use that solution. We do however; have partners who could provide a solution. If this is of interest, give us a call and we can work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs.
The Norwegian state facility operator, Statsbygg, has awarded ICEconsult a multiyear contract for implementation of nation-wide facility management system using MainManager (www.mainmanager.com). The contract was signed 29th of February at a formal event in Oslo. This agreement is by far the largest the company has made and is a tremendous recognition and opens doors to new markets. The decision was made on the basis of intensive tender and negotiation process that began early last year. 11 companies across the Nordic countries participated. Three of them were selected into the final phase, two Norwegian companies and ICEconsult. Statsbygg’s decision process included evaluation of the software, experience and vision as well as cost. The result was decisive as ICEconsult / Main Manager was awarded the highest rating in all aspects. On behalf of the Norwegian government, Statsbygg owns 2,350 buildings distributed among 600 property complexes at home and abroad. These include universities, office buildings, historic structures, prisons, royal buildings, embassies, etc. MainManager is a comprehensive Facility Management system (CAFM) used in thousands of buildings in Europe. The system supports FM processes such as development, maintenance and operations projects, construction, service level agreements (SLA), lease management, quality management, energy, etc.
