CAFM provides a single, comprehensive repository of information that tracks the organization’s people, places and physical assets.

When an organization implements a CAFM system, they can do:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Space Management
  • Asset Management
  • Maintenance Management
  • Emergency Management
  • Project and Contract Management
  • Portfolio Management, etc.

This can include remote facilities management reporting, as well as more direct systems that actively manage various aspects of facilities, such as HAVC, Lighting, LV/HV systems, etc.


A BIM for facility management provides visualization, access to the precise location and relationships of building systems and equipment, and access to accurate existing condition attribute data. Building Information Management (another way to decipher BIM) provides several advantages over traditional 2D drawings.
