Carlin/White Associates differentiates itself from other architectural firm's that specialize in space planning through the utilization of Space Management Systems, a new breed of software solutions for managing corporate workplace infrastructure.
Known as Workplace Infrastructure Management systems (also referred to as CAFM or Computer Assisted Facility Management Systems), they provide web-based, real-time access to vital information to assist building owners and corporations with large space holdings.
Carlin/White Associates provides both Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and Computer Assisted Facility Management (CAFM) solutions that help building owners and companies with large space holdings reduce cost and increase their efficiency and profitability.
The information generated by CAFM Systems provides a complete and accurate view of real estate holdings that assists building owners and corporations in more efficiently managing and utilizing space holdings, tracking corporate assets, making infrastructure decisions, and increasing operational efficiencies. Once the system is implemented, it does so by quickly compiling critical business information for immediate analysis and action.
Implementation of Carlin/White's CAFM Services consists of 4 steps:
Step 1: Implement Base Building Autocad/CAFM Systems Data Base - We create and/or convert all CAD data to the CAFM system, evaluate the existing base building data to determine the accuracy of data and the quality of building graphics.
Step 2: Implement Tenant Data Base Information - We input all tenant data and lease information and/or interface the CAFM System with your property management system.
Step 3: Interface CAFM data base with Asset Management Data Base - We input all corporate asset information and/or interface the CAFM system with your asset management system and database.
Step 4: Provide ASP hosting of system
and database so that organizational members can access databases, reports
and documents via the Internet. Once the Internet platform is
established, all data can be quickly and
easily accessed to analyze current needs and requirements, forecast future
space needs, and analyze re-organizational plans.
