September 27, Boston, Massachusetts – ARCHIBUS, Inc. (www.archibus.com), the #1 developer of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management software in the world, announces the latest release of its ARCHIBUS software suite.
The release, ARCHIBUS® V.20.2, features a new Compliance Management application. This application proactively manages regulatory obligations in order to mitigate risk, ensure a safe work environment, and reduce administrative burdens.
This new revision of ARCHIBUS also provides a room reservation Plugin for Microsoft Outlook® and ARCHIBUS also now fully supports Autodesk’s AutoCAD® 2013, AutoCAD® Architecture 2013, and Revit® 2013, Apple Safari® and Google Chrome™ browsers, among other feature enhancements.
ARCHIBUS Compliance Management Ensures Safe, Compliant Workplaces
The ARCHIBUS Compliance Management application provides a highly scalable solution to efficiently negotiate the substantial data and recordkeeping involved with regulatory compliance programs and permitting processes.
For example, it helps address the Clean Air Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the European Accessibility Act, as well as ongoing regulatory requirements for elevator inspections, building occupancy, underground tanks, and much more.
Compliance managers are called on to contain serious risks — from business interruption from a late occupancy permit, to shutdown from a failed compliance inspection, to personnel hazards from a stalled safety-training regime. The application helps managers remain compliant with myriad regulations, compliance terms, filings, and inspection schedules; moreover, it reduces administrative costs while doing so.
Ultimately, ARCHIBUS Compliance Management can help mitigate risk to protect an organization’s reputation and enhance stakeholder value.
Reservations Plugin for Microsoft Outlook Aids Scheduling and Coordination
The new Reservations Plugin allows an organization’s staff to work directly in Microsoft Outlook to invite participants and make a reservation for a conference room or other meeting space in a highly coordinated way using the ARCHIBUS Reservations application.
The Reservations Plugin identifies rooms available at the same time as the appointment, and lets the meeting initiator view an interactive floor plan that zooms to that room’s location. If an appointment is updated in Outlook, the Plugin then seamlessly updates the corresponding room and any associated resources through the ARCHIBUS Reservations application.
Supported in Seven Languages and More to Come
