VFA will Co-Present with Client Florida International University on a Proactive Facilities Management Approach to Help Justify Funding Needs
BOSTON—August 1, 2013—VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced that it will be co-presenting with client Florida International University (FIU) at the 2013 APPA Annual Conference and Exhibition, August 2-4, 2013 in Minneapolis. VFA will be exhibiting in Booth 723.
Marco Benitez, director of analysis, assessment and risk management, Florida International University, and Scott Cormier, senior director of product management, VFA, will be presenting on “Lifecycle Asset Management” on August 2 at 3:15 p.m. Faced with declining funds from both the state and from academic operations, the Facility Operations team decided to adopt a lifecycle asset management approach to justify year-over-year funding needs. Attendees will learn how this proactive approach works, how it helps justify funding requests and save money, and the challenges and benefits of using internal staff to keep facility condition data up-to-date.
Visitors to the VFA booth can also see a demo of its patented facility self-assessment solution, VFA.auditor®. Combining the power of mobile technologies, including the iPad® and Android™ tablet, with the company’s extensive facilities assessment experience, VFA.auditor enables organizations to utilize in-house resources to quickly and cost-effectively conduct assessments. VFA.auditor provides users with an extensive collection of intelligent surveys to rapidly and consistently collect data about the condition of facilities and major building systems.
