UNC Charlotte Goes Mobile with BRG and Syclo

Share Article

Mobile ARCHIBUS helps streamline UNCC’s facilities operations.

Syclo, a leading provider of enterprise mobile solutions, and BRG, a leading International Workplace Management Solutions provider, today announced an implementation for UNC Charlotte in which BRG mobilized facilities operations across UNC’s 6.8M sq. ft. campus with applications built on Syclo’s mobile technology. As North Carolina’s urban research University, facility space has nearly doubled in the last decade. The company’s master plans for ARCHIBUS and mobility address the physical expansion required to accommodate their growing student body, academic programs and critical research initiatives.

“With the help of BRG and Syclo’s mobile technology, we built a mobile strategy to increase efficiency, reduce errors and be more effective,” said Ray Dinello, Director of Facilities Information Systems at UNC Charlotte. “Our processes have been redefined for areas such as recycling management, preventative and corrective facilities maintenance, and physical asset management. Not only are we now able to reallocate resources from data entry to other personnel needs, we have enhanced customer service by providing real time work status.”
ARCHIBUS is the #1 provider of real estate, infrastructure and facilities management solutions in the world. Today, more than 4,000,000 ARCHIBUS users collectively manage over 5,000,000 properties around the globe.

Mobile ARCHIBUS extends ARCHIBUS’ functionality to the point of performance using any mobile device, driving productivity, accurate and timely data captures, and the optimization of resources. Built by BRG on Syclo’s powerful mobile technology, Mobile ARCHIBUS is fully configurable to match current workflow best practices and information needs.

Through the use of Mobile ARCHIBUS, UNC Charlotte’s facilities operations staff can view work order details and provide updates at the point of performance, and gather and edit asset attributes on the spot. Within the recycling program, they can capture bin levels at recycling stations for timely pick-up and identify where more bins are needed. The University sees further opportunity to improve processes through the use of mobility, with condition assessment and housekeeping next on the list.

“BRG is proud to partner with Syclo for addressing our customers’ complex mobility needs,” explained Michael Levine, BRG Senior Vice President of Strategy and Marketing. “Syclo’s mobile technology allows us to deploy quickly and reliably, provides for great flexibility in terms of configurability, and helps us lower our customer’s total cost of ownership. Syclo’s strong recommendations from analysts and customers were also important in selecting Syclo as a partner.”

“With today’s announcement, Syclo customers will find our mobile solutions are available to an increasing number of back office systems,” said Terri Snell, Senior Vice President, Business Development & Global Alliances at Syclo. “Syclo’s mobile technology enables our customers to achieve the fastest, most efficient and best-performing integration with systems such as ARCHIBUS. Moreover, BRG has been an excellent partner and brings ARCHIBUS expertise that is second to none.”
