From FSI: Additional Modules and Functionality for the Concept Evolution Fully Web-Enabled CAFM Solution

FSI (FM Solutions) Limited, Microsoft Gold partners and developers of the fully web-enabled Concept Evolution Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) solution, announce additional modules and functionality for the Facilities Management and Maintenance Management market.

Essex, United Kingdom, April 15, 2010 --( Software as a Service (SAAS) is a software distribution model allowing users to fully utilise the Concept Evolution fully web-enabled CAFM solution without disruption to day-to-day operations, whilst maintaining control of FM costs. Concept Evolution is hosted by a global Application Service Provider in a secure environment, published and available over the web directly to the end users’ computer, regardless of location. SAAS removes the need to install and run Concept Evolution on the network, therefore removing software maintenance, ongoing operation and support resources, and the need for capital investment in server hardware. SAAS provides a simple pay-as-you-go solution offering a cost effective delivery of Concept Evolution.

Digital Dashboard (DD) provides a real-time, easy to understand graphical representation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) defined and tailored according to individual requirements. Data may be drawn from the data sources in the fully web-enabled Concept Evolution CAFM solution, and through integration with third-party systems. Users are provided with access to relevant metrics and performance output thus providing the ability to measure performance and key business metrics at a glance. Management information can therefore be provided at operational, tactical and strategic levels and includes drill down capability between KPI’s and Concept Reports.

Workflow for Business Process Automation remains one of the jewels in the FSI crown. Via Workflow Lite, Concept Evolution fully web-enabled CAFM offers complete control over the business rules that trigger system communications and the content of messages. Workflow Lite enables the automation of email, electronic facsimile and SMS text messaging using an intuitive graphical design interface to map the business rules which trigger messages. Dynamic content can be defined for each message, including plain text or HTML formatting and PDF report attachments.

Building on this functionality, Workflow Pro includes a standard set of reusable software components (nodes) which enable the automation of business processes to improve efficiency and drive process, whilst a standard integration framework allows for the interfacing of the Concept Evolution fully web-enabled CAFM solution with other business systems. Workflow Pro provides a structured yet flexible set of tools for integration projects and therefore offers many benefits over specifically written interfaces.
