Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced that the upcoming release of its flagship software product, VFA.facility®, will provide map-based views of the assets in a real estate portfolio, integrating the latest technology from Esri, a leading provider of geographic information systems (GIS).
Based on asset selections or on the results of a search, VFA.facility customers can view asset locations on a map, color coded based on the condition of each asset. Customers can access additional information and photos in the map view, and can link directly to a detailed asset record. The mapping features in VFA.facility are enabled by Esri’s ArcGIS API, and delivered as a Web service.
“VFA is committed to providing our customers with tools to visually navigate and analyze their real estate portfolios to promote optimal facilities capital planning and management decisions,” said Jerry Kokos, president and CEO of VFA. “By employing Web services technology and secure APIs, VFA can deliver such visual data analysis tools to a wide array of devices, including mobile devices.”
VFA will demonstrate VFA.facility version 10.3 at Booth #1839 during the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference & Expo, March 12-14, 2013, at the Baltimore Convention Center.
