A Better Way to Manage Large Facilities
Facility managers have a variety of challenging responsibilities that Visual Plan can help address:
Controlling Costs & Time
Existing building plans today are almost never reliable or current. This often leads to wasted time revisiting a site to conﬁrm details or to measure. It can also result in ordering the wrong supplies, designs not matching spaces and additional project costs or wasted supplies. Keeping an accurate and current plan, hosted in one platform like Visual Plan, can ensure crystal clear communication and direction for ﬂawless project execution, time and cost savings.
Coordinating Teams and Resources
Visual Plan allows the Facility Manager to be the problem solver, even when not in the room. This is critically important with technical installations, optimizing operation, performance and use of assets. People are also important assets Facility Managers must manage efficiently, especially when managing large properties or multiple buildings in various locations. Visual Plan becomes the virtual window into each building without having to step in the door.
Preventative Maintenance & Increasing the Lifespan of Assets
It is frustrating enough when equipment fails. But even more frustrating is when you have to wait long periods for parts or repair. Asset maintenance can be a complex process requiring continuous information ﬂow and quick action. But by maintaining equipment regularly, you can save on large repair bills and the inconvenience of untimely breakdowns. Visual Plan enables your team to have accurate building plans and 360° imagery at their fingertips at all times. This can be a huge time saver and signiﬁcantly reduce miscommunication or confusion. Relevant maintenance records, equipment history, manuals and notes in the Visual Plan 360° software can help with operational eﬃciency and allow Facility Managers to ensure assets are maintained promptly.
Insurance and Claims
Having all assets properly documented with 360°imagery, detailed notes and records can be critical in assessing damage and replacement costs. Using Visual Plan for insurance documentation pre and post incident can dramatically decrease claim times and costs to travel and asses claims. The pre-incident documentation is a fantastic way to validate damage and help with investigations cause and point of origin, assess building code or ﬁre violations and many other observations.
Controlling Inventory through Visuals
Visual Plan is the perfect tool for inventory control. You can schedule photo capture annually, quarterly or monthly as needed and have a historical comparison not only of your assets, but their condition giving you a visual representation of your data. You can also use our 3D Twin Comparison to inspect wear and tear over time. Retention of assets is 87% dependent upon visual inspections.
With Visual Plan, facility managers, security teams and integrator’s can have their teams virtually visit multiple buildings or spaces in a single afternoon without ever leaving the training room or web conference. Massive facilities can be covered in minutes. Videos explaining health and safety standards or procedures can be practiced in VR, away from hazardous environments and without production stops.
Develop planning scenarios, conduct detailed inspections, review lock-down or evacuation plans, more accurately, rapidly and effectively than ever before.
