EcoDomus software provides a ‘Common Data Environment’ for all relevant types of information. It gives a 3D view of facilities in an easy-to-use format for facility managers that links the Asset Information Model (in BIM) with real-time facility operations data acquired by meters and sensors (Building Management Systems, BMS) and facility management (FM) software. This allows for intelligent analysis of a building’s performance and supports better maintenance practices, resulting in significant reductions in labor hours and energy use.

The InVision™ software suite from PenBay Solutions helps solve mission-critical challenges throughout the facility lifecycle—saving time and money, protecting lives and assets, and creating safe and productive environments for site visitors and building occupants.

InVision informs clients’ mission-critical decisions by rendering their facilities portfolio—campuses, buildings, grounds, infrastructure, utilities, security systems, and assets—as they exist in the real world using data-rich, interactive maps, georeferenced floor plans (i.e., FloorMaps™), and graphical representations. This visual approach to organizing facility management data improves the insight, collaboration, and control clients have over the initiatives that impact their strategic goals. Whether the challenges are simple or complex, InVision helps clients more accurately understand and evaluate: what you have, where it is, what condition it’s in, what is needed, when it’s needed, who’s in charge, and what it will cost.

 



 When the iPad was unveiled in 2010, it marked the first generation of construction field-ready mobile technology. It was the moment when the idea for PlanGrid was invented, with a clear objective to make technology so intuitive and impactful that people in construction want to use it. Since then, PlanGrid has been used on over one million projects around the world and is the first Construction Productivity Software that allows contractors and owners in commercial, heavy civil, and other industries to work together throughout the project lifecycle. We’ve brought technology and ideas from other industries to automate the tedious tasks and free up teams to collaborate from anywhere. And there is no such thing as “good enough” here. We only build things to last.
