BOSTON – July 12, 2010 VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced the release of version 9.5 of its flagship software product, VFA.facility®, in the United States and Canada. This latest version enhances the green functionality of the software, making it easier for facility managers to identify new opportunities for increasing energy efficiency and water conservation within their building portfolios.
VFA.facility® provides a central database of facilities information along with sophisticated tools for capital planning and budgeting. The new features in version 9.5 make it easier for organizations to develop more robust budget strategies to help align sustainability with organizational objectives. Now, after establishing an initial baseline of energy and water utilization, these organizations will be able to track water and energy usage within their facilities, as well as compare costs of sustainable options with conventional solutions to inform capital planning decisions and help to prioritize funding decisions.
“VFA helps organizations plan, budget and fund sustainability projects within the context of facility capital planning,” said Susan Irving, director of product marketing at VFA. “Utility performance tracking in the new release of VFA.facility® enables customers to better understand which initiatives will assist them in meeting their goals.”
