CAFM Explorer hits Colorado USA

09 December 2010

After a lengthy tender process FMx authors of CAFM Explorer have been awarded the contract to implement the CAFM system for Larimer County in Colorado USA.

CAFM Explorer will be deployed across the county to manage their facilities, including reactive, planned maintenance, space management and real time reporting.
This is a major contract for us commented Tony Leppard FMx's MD. “Winning this contract has proven we can compete with the strongest USA based FM and CAD systems. Colorado has now become the 19th US state to take up CAFM Explorer as its base grows strongly throughout the world.”
Larimer County is located in north central Colorado. It is the seventh largest county in Colorado based on population and encompasses 2,640 square miles that extends to the Continental Divide and includes several mountain communities and Rocky Mountain National Park. Larimer County is to implement one centralized and comprehensive Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system, which includes preventive maintenance, reactive work order management, space planning/management, CAD integration, and helpdesk capabilities.  Larimer County Facilitiescomprise approximately 28 buildings totaling 1.2m sq ft with future potential to increase to approximately 2m sq ft.  The Facilities department has  a total of 39 full-time employees including management, of these 12 full-time employees are dedicated to facilities maintenance activities.
The proposed new CAFM application or version will replace the existing Tririga application environment. All existing asset information, specifications, and attachments will be migrated to the new CAFM application. 

FMx celebrates 25 years in business next year. It coined the term Computer Aided Facilities Management - CAFM - and built its business on the CAFM Explorer system that offers users a low cost of entry modular product that can be built over time and as circumstances permit. Key to its continued relevance and usability is its User Group whose members highlight improvements and new tools needed for the system. These wishes are turned into reality by the FMx team and thoroughly tested before being rolled out to the users. it is a fully collaborative process which has proved to be robust over the years.
The move into on line sales has seen CAFM Explorer going global with interest coming from a range of countries.  It is its qualities as a modular and low cost entry system that has proved to have a competitive edge over the complex CAD based systems which have been more common in the USA.  This contract win along with others in the USA and elsewhere recognises this approach.  Overseas users have access to online training and support provided by FMx, and can also have on site training wherever they are in the world.
