Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced it is hosting a complimentary lunch seminar on how RBC Royal Bank (RBC) developed a successful facilities capital planning program. The seminar is taking place Thursday, October 2, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University Club of Toronto.
For years, RBC performed facilities capital planning on spreadsheets. But as the branch network grew, it became harder to manage all the capital needs. In addition, it was difficult to make informed decisions that could impact multiple facilities, especially their owned properties. Managing large capital budgets and prioritizing the investments became a key goal for RBC, and they needed a more powerful, sophisticated system to handle these tasks.
In this seminar, Edith Itzcovici, manager, Design Standards & Retail Client Experience, RBC Royal Bank, will discuss the steps the bank took to acquire a facilities capital planning and management system, how it uses the system today, and how it expects to expand usage in the future.
