"As our organization grew it became clear we needed a single, central system for managing our operations," said Seng Yip Leong, Senior Executive Facilities - Support Operations Department, World Wild Life Federation, Malaysia. "We're not IT experts and we're not working with a big budget, so it was imperative that the software we chose be affordable and easy to work with. ManageEngine FacilitiesDesk fit the bill exactly. It allows us to easily access and work with data related to all the vendors, assets and facilities we depend-on every day. And we're excited about the new features ManageEngine continues to add."
"A growing awareness of the importance of building and facilities management is leading to a rising demand for management software offering superior scalability and functionality," said Ananda Raman Krishnan, product manager, ManageEngine FacilitiesDesk. "In response to these market needs, we are continuing to add dozens of new capabilities to our FacilitiesDesk suite, making it the right choice for even the largest installations."
ManageEngine FacilitiesDesk, an integrated, web-based facility management application, is available in two versions -- Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) and Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) -- to meet the needs of individual administrators. While each version provides specific benefits, the two are designed to easily integrate, offering a robust feature set, including tracking and management of assets, work orders, and maintenance requests; as well as portfolio and move management.
Key feature additions found in the new FacilitiesDesk (in both CMMS and CAFM editions) include:
-- iPhone, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile interfaces.
-- Work order and preventive maintenance management.
-- LDAP support -- allows administrators to authenticate and import user
information from a variety of directory systems.
-- E-Mail Parsing -- reduces supervisors' time in sorting a work request.
-- Windows 2008 server support.
-- Enhanced purchase order module and improved user interface.
