The facility management solution IMSware in use. The IGA GmbH in Alsdorf is owned GmbH in the town of Alsdorf and managed the majority of the documented buildings of the municipality near Aachen. Only with the help of an integrated information system is the possibility to provide the abundance of inventory and usage data, as well as the necessary cost information, manage and evaluate. The use of a CAFM-solution is the logical decision of necessary restructuring and cost reductions for the building and plant management, which consistently pursues the IGA GmbH. Alsdorf was planned and discussed. At the end of claims, requirements and objectives were.The search for a suitable system and service providers led the IGA Alsdorf to IMS GmbH. reputation and references secured the decision on the search for a suitable system. A detailed specification was developed in cooperation with the project manager of the IMS and the person in charge of the IGA Alsdorf, as well as several workshops.
In training users will met all possibilities of the CAFM system and at the same time learned to operate the system is flexible and easy. The user system acceptance was especially important to us”, said IGA project manager, architect Michael Minnaert. Another prerequisite was a flexible system environment. The system must adapt fully to our individual needs”, Minnaert adds. Before commissioning the building data in the CAFM system a plucking to, however.
Data are to sift, to check on compliance with the stock, or even to collect. Here, some perspective is required. We collect only the relevant, target-oriented inventory data in the first step”to Minnaert. According to analysis of work processes and data location began the prioritization of tasks, as well as the sequence of the introduction the following modules: IMSware.Basis incl. GrafikBudgetmanagement, order management, maintenance management, IMSware.WEB portal, and energy management. In addition, a DATEV interface is realized. The introduction of the software is modular. In the first step of the introduction was the budget and contract management made ready for use. Now we have a differentiated overview of the resources situation and building operating costs at any time”Minnaert explains. In the second step, we will complement the relevant building data for maintenance management. With the introduction of maintenance management, we better have a cost-intensive area in the handle and can raise real metrics through more informed decisions based on savings. Immediately afterwards, the energy management in attack is taken. Rising energy prices lead to ever-increasing building maintenance costs. Here apply the lever for cost savings, makes a lot of sense anyway.
