A ground breaking cloud-technology software solution for facilities managers is set to unveil its innovative new mobile surveying app at the 2012 Facilities Show in Birmingham, as pioneering software firm, kykloud set their sights on revolutionising the asset management sector.

kykloud’s market leading handheld condition assessment app will be officially launched at the show on the back of a recent major contract win through which kykloud software will collect condition data on up to 8,000 schools, or 20 million square metres of educational facilities on behalf of the UK Education Funding Agency.

kykloud is one of the first cloud-based software solutions to enable facilities managers to deal with complete end-to-end asset management and aims to save millions of pounds through more effective management of fixed assets, with a 30% time saving on asset data collection alone. kykloud has already been adopted by a selection of high-profile businesses including Willmott Dixon, G4S, and Davis Langdon.
The landmark software as a service (SaaS) product has been jointly created by previous 4Projects Head of Technology, Nick Graham and the former Whole Life Cost Director of Balfour Beatty, Ed Bartlett to bring to market an asset management tool offering a fully-linked-in mobile technology service.

The low-cost subscription model of kykloud allows facilities managers to capture asset data across small, medium or large portfolios and more effectively use this data to generate significant cost reductions and greater time-efficiency.
Co-founder of kykloud, Ed Bartlett said: “kykloud has been developed over two years with the needs of facilities and asset management professionals front of mind and incorporates many of the features which I personally sought, and failed to find, during my time at Balfour Beatty. The software is designed to put the needs of the user first, allowing unlimited access to data and create instant reports to deliver a real-time,fully-rounded picture of assets lifecycle performance”

As the facilities management industry becomes increasingly focused on minimising the £50bn annual cost of on-going maintenance through the incorporation of lifecycle costing techniques, kykloud offers users the opportunity to look ahead to the condition and outcome of assets with anything from a five to 35 year outlook.
kykloud’s software supports facilities managers in delivering more effective management of expenditure over the lifetime of buildings, as well as immediate reporting to ensure users can access all portfolio data at any time and at any location through pioneering cloud-technology.

Ed continues: “As a business, we are entirely focussed on ensuring kykloud offers real value to the end-user. With the linked-up mobile technology service, users spend up to a third less time on asset data collection using our exclusive mobile apps to generate not only time-efficiency but the added cost savings which we estimate to be a five time return on the monthly service fee investment.
“We look forward to showcasing kykloud at the Facilities Show in Birmingham and to launch the market leading features and innovative applications of the software to the facilities management sector.”
