Graphisoft to Debut ArchiFM 7.0 in the US at IFMA's World Workplace
Object-based CAFM Software Offers Financial Control, Space and Maintenance Management, and Visualization of Buildings in an Integrated 3-D Database
September 20, 2001 - Newton, Mass. - Graphisoft, the leading provider of building design and management software, today announced the North American launch of ArchiFM 7.0, ushering in the next generation of 3-D computer-aided facilities management (CAFM) products. Graphisoft will debut ArchiFM 7.0 at booth #555 at IFMA's World Workplace, September 23-25 in Kansas City, Mo.
From the automation of routine tasks, to planning and managing property portfolios, to tracking and controlling finances, ArchiFM delivers a fully integrated 3-D CAFM system to facility management professionals including facility directors, space planners, IT staff, designers and casual users of facilities information.
New features in version 7.0 include enhanced efficiency for users through improved maintenance management, more sophisticated connection to enterprise management systems such as SAP, Oracle, etc., and new functionalities in tenant management.
ArchiFM 7.0 WebServer, an optional application, is a radically new approach to FM management via the Internet. ArchiFM WebServer offers the necessary security protocols for the sharing of sensitive data over the Internet while maintaining the functionality and ease-of-use of ArchiFM. Organizations to benefit from this Web-based solution are those that have multiple users who need access to a central facility management database ¾ anytime and anywhere ¾ through the Internet or an intranet.
Built on ARCHICAD's sophisticated building objects model, a user-designed interface and powerful tools for data integration, ArchiFM gives users the most efficient methods to integrate external and disparate information into their working systems.
ArchiFM is available in North America through Drawbase Software, a subsidiary of Graphisoft U.S., Inc. For more information, contact your local Drawbase distributor. To find the one nearest you, call (800) 545-4223 or e-mail .
