NEW ORLEANS, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ARC Document Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: ARC), the nation's leading document solutions provider for architects, engineers and the construction industry in the areas of design, building and facilities, and plant operations management, will be demonstrating its Facilities Information Management (FIM) solution at Booth #40 at the annual conference of the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) being held in New Orleans from April 26 through April 28.
Reducing Complexity with FIM
One of several innovative archiving and information management solutions, ARC's Facilities Information Management reduces the day-to-day complexity inherent in buildings and facility operations through the use of touch-based interactive dashboards.
ARC's customized FIM solution links drawings, maintenance, safety, and other critical operations documents, making them accessible on mobile devices, large touchscreen displays, and computers by creating a central repository for all documents and information. Paper documents of all kinds and sizes are converted to digital files, organized, and incorporated into a simple-to-use graphical interface. The resulting cloud and mobile-enabled dashboard provides a portable and comprehensive information system that makes finding and using facilities documents quick and easy from any location.
Facilities Information Management enables access to all essential facilities maintenance, operations and safety information and provides compliance and inspection and audit readiness. It enhances workflow efficiency and team productivity.
Keeping Critical Documents within Reach
With tap/swipe/pinch simplicity on a mobile device or point-and-click familiarity on a computer, owners or operators of any real estate asset can easily deploy a linked and customized library of documents that:
increases understanding of a facility's current state with integrated tenant improvements
links to operations and maintenance manuals and warranties
helps manage workspaces and key infrastructure, including IT network mapping
provides access to life safety and emergency response plans
controls site planning and signage packages
tracks equipment and maintenance logs
informs operating and business decisions
The city of Wilsonville, Oregon, is one of the early adopters of ARC's Facilities Information Management solution.
Matt Baker, Wilsonville Public Works Supervisor, said, "Organizing and updating facilities documents is a big job. Who is the go-to person to access those documents? Is that person available to others? With ARC's Facilities Information Management solution, we can now manage documents easily and ensure that all the relevant and critical information is available quickly and not with just one person."
Putting Your Hands on FIM...Literally
For three days, AIIM Conference attendees will be able to join Kumar Wiratunga, ARC's Corporate Vice President of Archiving and Information Management, at an 84" touchscreen to see just how easy – and powerful – ARC's FIM solution is.
"Once facilities managers see how easy the touch-based dashboard is to use, how quickly they can access their current documents, and how customizable and scalable ARC's solutions are, they recognize very quickly what they've been missing," said Wiratunga. "The concept of facilities information on a touchscreen is intriguing – but to see it in practice and literally put your hands on it is very appealing."
On April 26, Wiratunga will also be moderating one of the tradeshow panel discussions, "Working at the Speed of Digital with Cloud and Dashboards." A long-time industry veteran in document management, ECM, and business process management, Wiratunga will lead the discussion on how cloud and mobile access to mission-critical content can be enhanced via graphical dashboards.
