GIS for Space and Facility Management

Web GIS for Space and Facility Management

Space and Facility Management organizations that use iVAULT Web GIS can:

• Share information internally and externally, facilitating better decision-making
• Benefit from integration between CAD, GIS and Content Management Systems
• Use integrated data with spatial attributes to improve facility and space planning
• Reduce costs through enhanced analysis of facility use, availability and optimization
• Manage maintenance workflows for mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems
• Implement an accurate contingency plan in case of environmental incidents like floods, storms and earthquakes

Case Studies

Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL)

iVAULT Space Management

Headquartered in Chicago, USA, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) is a financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate services and investment management. JLL works with corporations to improve their space utilization and to manage the costs, efficiency and performance of the real estate they own and occupy. JLL has more than 30,000 people in 750 locations in 60 countries.

Challenges

JLL had been an Autodesk MapGuide 6.5 customer for several years, and wanted to upgrade to MapGuide Open Source. JLL unsuccessfully pursued a customized solution before deciding to upgrade to iVAULT. System flexibility, stability, performance and user support were key business needs.

Solution

JLL chose Pacific Alliance Technologies because of our MapGuide expertise, and our reputation for rapid and configurable implementation. iVAULT put them in control of their data for quick access and flexibility.

JLL chose iVAULT because its architecture makes data integration easier and it is rapidly-deployable. iVAULT enables JLL’s clients to query attributes of the CAD data to facilitate the decisions needed to manage millions of square feet of tenant space.

Results

Pacific Alliance Technologies implemented an iVAULT and MapGuide Open Source platform, adding flexibility to MapGuide’s functionality. This gave JLL the ability to configure queries to meet their business needs. iVAULT’s intuitive interface provided easy functionality for users.
