RALEIGH, N.C. – August 7, 2012 – FM:Systems, a provider of integrated workplace management systems (IWMS) and computer-aided facility management (CAFM) software, today announced continued global expansion, signing on partner Geomap Facilities, specializing in delivering geographic information systems (GIS), Web mapping, geospatial solutions, building information modeling (BIM) and CAFMimplementations to customers across France, Luxembourg and Belgium.
Geomap Facilities is a parent company of Montreal-based Geomap GIS America, a company that became an FM:Systems partner last year, enabling customers to connect BIM data throughout the design, construction, renovation and operation phases of a building’s lifecycle – Lifecycle BIM.
As an Autodesk AEC Industry Partner, FM:Systems offers a direct integration with Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software from its FM:Interact Workplace Management Suite. This improves communication and collaboration between stakeholders as a building evolves.
To meet both partners growing customer base demands, all the modules in FM:Interact are now available in French. Joint FM:Systems and Geomap Facilities customers already signed on to use FM:Interact include Deloitte Luxembourg and Ferrero Luxembourg.
“Partnering with FM:Systems means we are offering our customers best-in-class facility management and BIM solutions,” said Filipe Alves, FM:Systems product manager at Geomap Facilities. “We found their Web-based platform easy to use and the availability in French meets our customer’s needs.
As we start to implement and see the benefits of BIM, the customization, workflow, and reporting capabilities will make the transition seamless and give our customers a true 360-degree view of the facility.”
“We’re pleased to extend the benefits of our technology to our international customers and partners, specifically Geomap Facilities, Deloitte Luxembourg and Ferrero Luxembourg,” said Kurt von Koch, vice president of sales and marketing for FM:Systems. “Offering FM:Interact in French is just another step in expanding our global footprint, and we look forward to serving many more international organizations.”
