To support the increasing use of technology in facility management, ARC Document Solutions has launched the next generation of its cloud-based ARC Facilities Platform, which stores building-specific documents that are linked, searchable, and accessible instantly by facilities teams from their ARC Mobile Facilities Dashboards.
The ARC Facilities Platform offers four individual dashboards that address specific use cases: ARC Buildings; ARC Emergency; ARC Equipment; ARC Compliance. Facilities can use any or all of these dashboards to meet their needs.
The new ARC Equipment dashboard features instant access to 14 types of equipment information, including HVAC, electrical, gas systems, plumbing systems, refrigeration, and generators.
The ARC Facilities Platform provides document solutions to increase productivity and customer service levels, while also reducing costs by eliminating information search time that slows down the completion of work orders and other tasks. Emergency responsiveness is also improved when facilities teams can access emergency plans and share essential building information via their mobile devices.
“When customers see their own building information on an iPad® or mobile phone for the first time, organized in dashboards, they immediately recognize that it will transform the way they manage and operate their buildings,” said ARC executive vice president, Brian Bailard. “Enthusiasm is visible on their faces and they immediately begin to anticipate the improved levels of productivity and customer service, which according to 226 respondents to an ARC survey in September 2018, are the top two reasons facilities managers purchase technology.”
