VFA Awarded Patents for Facility Condition Data Collection

July 10, 2013

We are excited to announce that VFA has been granted two patents for our intelligent, mobile-enabled facility condition data collection process and software for the purpose of creating and maintaining a facilities capital plan. Read the full press release here.

Our patented solution, VFA.auditor®, combines mobile power, including iPads® and Androids™, with our extensive facilities assessment experience, so that our clients and partners can utilize their own resources to quickly and affordably assess their buildings and systems.

VFA.auditor users have quadrupled their assessment productivity and reduced office time from two weeks to two days! Here’s what some of them are saying about VFA.auditor:

“Our staff’s use of VFA.auditor results in a frequent, consistent data flow, and keeps the data more accurate and up to date. In addition, by using a standard process and data format, the data is consistent throughout no matter who captures the information, a benefit given staff turnover and the constantly changing airport environment.”
William Pharris, senior facility assets manager, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

“Assessing a few buildings a week, using the guided process within VFA.auditor, and building the database over time has helped our team to strategically manage the company’s second largest investment – our facilities – more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before.”
Chris Anderson, senior manager, Black Hills Corporation

As a technology company, we’re thrilled about the patents, and even more pleased that we’re solving the real-world problems faced by facility managers.
