VFA FacilityView™ Provides Easy Access to Holistic View of Organization’s Facility Information for Key Stakeholders
BOSTON—November 12, 2013—VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced the release of VFA FacilityView™, a Web-based solution for quick and secure access to key information about an organization’s real estate portfolio. An extension to its flagship facilities capital planning software, VFA.facility®, VFA FacilityView allows a wide range of business stakeholders beyond facility managers and capital planners to easily view information about the organization’s facility assets, their condition and their funding needs, regardless of in which system the data resides.
VFA.facility® includes a wealth of information about facility assets, from their location and condition to the renewal costs of their systems to their capital funding needs over time. While only specific roles may be directly involved in facility capital planning, access to current information about the real estate portfolio is valuable to a wide group of stakeholders, such as executives, department heads, risk managers, environmental and energy managers, building occupants and community members.
VFA FacilityView enables customers to extend the value of VFA.facility data to the stakeholders it chooses, providing a simple, intuitive interface accessible on a wide range of devices. It also enables integration of related information from other enterprise applications, such as work order management or financial systems, putting this data in a broader business context.
Delivered to a desktop, laptop or mobile tablet, VFA FacilityView lets users easily search for assets, view summary information about a group of assets, such as type, use, condition and replacement value, see their locations on a map, and view details about an individual asset, including capital requirements by priority, category or system. Access to this data provides insight into the overall condition of the portfolio, the areas of greatest need and the status of particular facilities which may be critical to stakeholders.
“VFA is committed to providing our customers with innovative facilities capital planning software to help them evaluate their real estate portfolios,” said Jerry Kokos, president and CEO, VFA, Inc. “With VFA FacilityView, facility teams can easily connect their executives with facilities-related data in order to justify or enable strategic decisions; provide an understanding of investment needs and priorities to building users and community stakeholders; and demonstrate the critical role that facilities play in support of organizational objectives.”
