What are the benefits of using a software solution for Facility Condition Assessment?

The main benefit of implementing a software solution for Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) is access to accurate, objective, and current FCA data so that you can expertly execute your strategic capital plan.

Facility management technology and building condition assessment technology have come a long way. In 2022, we expect access to data and information 24/7 from anywhere in the world. This is particularly important in the commercial built environment.

Conducting a building condition assessment requires blending diverse data such as building elements, the properties of components and systems, and maintenance records. Previous methods for facility data collection focused on identifying these data sets and developing a model for facility condition risk assessment. Yet, transferring the data is performed manually, which requires considerable time and effort.

Implementing software for Facility Condition Assessment makes the whole process more efficient and eliminates the need for outdated methods like pencils, paper, and excel spreadsheets.

In the broad context of facilities management, building maintenance is generally recognized as the main activity, with more than 65% of the total cost of FM coming from facility maintenance management. However, there are some challenges in current facilities management practices that have required a paradigm shift in the sector in recent years.

Clients now demand strategies for predicting maintenance events rather than responding to problems as they arise. This shift marks the transition from corrective or planned procedures to preventive and predictive methods.

Please read our guide to implementing preventive maintenance for smarter, more strategic Capital Planning.

For example, the failure of building elements can be predicted by preventative maintenance through an analysis of condition data and historical maintenance records. This increases efficiency, reliability, and safety.

Now is the time to toss those paper reports! Intellis can solve all of your facilities-related challenges with a high-quality facility condition assessment (FCA) solution.

All from one unified dashboard, FOUNDATION software enables you to manage your single and multi-site building assessments, including criticality assessment, asset tracking, facility condition index, funding optimization, preventive maintenance scheduling, reporting, and analytics.
