Building owners and managers can
reference data organized and tabulated by CAFM
to plan building services and business growth,
monitor compliance, control costs and protect
For example :
CAFM "red flags" high cost items that
will need repair or replacement so these maintenance
costs can be worked into capital improvement budgets
in the early stages of planning.
CAFM can help facilities managers improve day-to-day
building and building services management, and
aids in planning medium and long-term repairs
CAFM gives construction engineers the basis to
provide rapid responses to short term repairs,
maintenance and construction.
CAFM can have built-in rules to identify deviations
from corporate standards ( eg. air quality ) and
laws (eg. fire safety, building by-laws).
CAFM can very effectively allocate revenues &
costs to units of space and spot variations &
trends in profitability.
Movable and immovable assets can be closely tracked,
controlled, protected and valued.
CAFM's real power is the program's ability to
organize and store information from many building
locations in a single comprehensive system.
CAFM facilitates comparing and combining data
from all parts of the network. It indicates, for
instance, where costs are high, which repairs
should be done first when funds are short, or
how much it would cost to close and consolidate
the various network buildings.
It provides the clear overview needed to prevent
management-related losses that might otherwise
be difficult to spot with data this wide-ranging
