ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework

Technology Extensions

ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework

Better service delivery increasingly means fasterand more accurateservice delivery, a goal now made practical through implementation of the latest mobile technology. Included in Web Central V.21, the ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework delivers a new breed of secure, easily configurable, and customer-responsive apps, providing accurate facilities information when and where it is needed. ARCHIBUS creates mobile apps oncewhich will run on a variety of late model, high-end mobile devices. And, new technology makes your data — including photos, campus plans, and floor plans — interactive, so that any authorized user can quickly locate spaces, people, assets, and tasks.

Anywhere-Access to Graphical and Non-Graphical Reports

ARCHIBUS easily delivers graphical data the way your organization needs it. You can, for example, publish floor plans directly from within AutoCAD that then can be viewed in mobile devices. That means you can see floor plans, photos, forms and other graphical data with the same accessibility and clarity that users would expect if they were sitting at their desks. These capabilities make ARCHIBUS mobile apps a better way to share graphical and non-graphical information that puts facilities teams, literally and figuratively, on the same page.

Economical, Bi-Directional Data Exchange Increases Productivity

Saving both time and the cost of traveling to and from an office to collect work orders, etc., ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework Apps makes the exchange of space, floor plan and other information accurate, instantaneous, and indispensable. Just as important, it replaces paperbased reporting with electronic forms that transmit data directly to a central repository, eliminating misplaced files and associated delays in retrieving them.

Apps for Core Mobile Capabilities

The ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework extends the existing Web Central application business logic to field personnel who need mobile access to ARCHIBUS data. It utilizes the workflow, validation, and data already defined in Web Central to enable location-based information access and creation. The Apps deployed through the ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework synchronize and validate field-generated and enterprise information. The Apps were developed using an open industry-standard development environment for easy enhancement.

Semi-Connected App Support and More

The ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework offers many more capabilities and advantages, a hallmark of ARCHIBUS application development. It provides a cost-effective, flexible infrastructure to simplify work processes and minimize the use of error-prone printouts and written notes. The ARCHIBUS Mobile Framework also improves workgroup efficiency through its exceptional adaptability and ease of personalization.
