Mobile applications are an increasingly popular tool for facility management, offering ease of use, consistency, and increased productivity. Last week, we announced the latest release of our facility self-assessment application, VFA.auditor Mobile™ version 4.0, which features a new tablet-style user interface familiar to those users of mobile devices. The touch-centric look and feel is similar to that of Apple’s iPad® and iPhone®, and works on iPads, Android® and Microsoft® tablets.
Facility staff gets access to over 500 building system templates with just a touch. Each system contains its own set of typical deficiencies to choose from, all with embedded RSMeans® cost data. Users can also view, update and close existing facility requirements, making the application more effective than ever for re-assessment activity.
Facility self-assessment with mobile devices is providing organizations with a more complete picture of their facilities and identifying the most pressing problems. It’s a mobile world, and increasingly facility managers are leveraging the use of mobile technology to be more efficient.
How is your organization addressing the mobility challenge?
