Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
Building Engines, global provider of comprehensive web-based and mobile real estate and facility operations management solutions, announced unparalleled enhancements to its Inspections Manager that will provide the most feature-rich mobile inspections solution available. Included in the unique-to-market inspections features is the ability to capture photos from a mobile device, integrate with work orders, conduct inspections in basements and other areas of no connectivity and link to building and equipment records.
Building Engines users can now leverage new and powerful mobile technology to complete inspections on any mobile phone or tablet device and, for the first time, capture and attach photos to augment documentation and provide historical reference.
The easy to use Inspection Editor moves the process of creating, deploying and reporting on all inspections online and is the first of its kind to directly integrate with work order management. The module streamlines the process of conducting inspections and managing the issues associated with them, by allowing users to initiate work orders while carrying out inspections and align work orders with regularly scheduled inspections. In contrast to other systems that use preventive maintenance to stand in for inspection requirements or offer stand-alone solutions that are disconnected from work order management and preventive maintenance systems, Building Engines seamlessly integrates the features that enable managers to ensure that follow-up work is completed.
Upcoming Q1 developments include scoring to evaluate a set of buildings across inspections criteria, expanded summary reporting, pre-packaged inspection kits that provide maintenance teams with best practice inspection lists by property type, and a deeper integration with the rest of the Building Engines Property and Tenant Management Platform.
“There has been long-standing need for a comprehensive mobile inspections tool for commercial real estate professionals,” said Scott Sidman, SVP of Building Engines. “We developed our inspections platform as a direct response to industry feedback and then vetted them during extensive client and prospect focus group research to ensure that our tool is the most usable, complete and powerful solution on the market.”
Building Engines is a web-based and mobile system providing owners and managers of all property types with a comprehensive solution for improving operations and workflow management. Founded in 2000 by an entrepreneurial team of building and facilities operations management professionals, Building Engines serves the needs of hundreds of millions of square feet of commercial, corporate, institutional and health care real estate in the United States, Canada and Europe.
