Overall, iOffice has been a magnificent addition to an office as a way-finding and location planning tool. However, iOffice seems like it was created for a more modest office with a low floor plan and occupancy changes. The office does not seem scalable for companies that are moving people around frequently or making updates daily. It cannot make mass changes, and there’s no way to preview the floor without publishing it to the live site. There are also many limitations to syncing office data with other existing platforms that our company uses, and it requires extra API development internally to build connectors for immediate updates.
Pros: Simple to use and instruct others to use the software. Clear interface. Capacity to set customized license levels per module (asset, space, mail etc.). Good customer service. Compatible with Single-Sign-On.
Cons: Lacks main features such as creating mass changes in occupancy, auto/scheduled publishing floor plans or move lists. Maintenance of floor plans is tedious:
No purpose to preview or check floor plans in “draft” before issuing to the live site.
It resolved an argument with calendaring with customers – the time-consuming job of the back and forth to schedule. Put the client at the wheel with scheduling when it works for them. It integrates with meeting tools (such as RingCentral), thus creating/populating the meeting bridge information seamlessly.
Pros: The ability to create teams of people is great – those who want to show the availability of more than one person and only allow selection of an appt time if all people are available. It makes it easier to put the scheduling in the customer’s hands than the back and forth and holding multiple calendars.
Cons: Except you set up more than one calendar link, you can’t define an agenda for meetings. Or have an option to enable the customer to select preset catalogues.
After about 15 different scheduling apps, but some users kept coming back to Skedda. It just works for their needs PERFECTLY!! Other apps were missing this feature or that feature, but Skedda had them all. End of story!
Pros: There are so many interesting and versatile features embedded within this software. The most impactful features that excite them the most in selecting this software are the customer’s ability to book their band for a specific studio package, all within a comfortable and easy interface. Skedda is so VERY versatile to work exactly as everybody plans it to. User chose to automatically block off booked times slots so that no double bookings are possible. They chose to automatically add up the total rate for multiple hourly block sessions. They also chose not to provide the customer to book multiples of various packages within the booking. For example: If the customer decides 4 hours of ‘STUDIO + PA SYSTEM PACKAGE’ @ $25/ hr., he or she cannot schedule ‘STUDIO + DRUMKIT’ @ $22/hr. within that same time slot. Avoid any chance of a confusing situation. With an app this versatile, it is expected to be challenging to figure some elements out. Customer service instantly replies to the chat requests with a friendly response to all the questions and walk me through their struggles in an easy to understand step by step explanation. They had it all figured out within minutes, thanks to their experienced and knowledgeable staff. The customer support was the best!! The integration into the WordPress website was easy and worked flawlessly!
Cons: It costs a bit more than other apps, but for the additional benefits and features, that is expected. There is a learning curve involved with figuring out the ‘Space Sharing’ aspect of skedda.
Web-based software platform that is integrated the five modules needed most often by facility and real estate managers to form an Integrated Workplace Management System.
An IWMS is more than a repository for all of the data these applications gather. The system offers coordination of activities occurring in each of these areas of an enterprise. Therefore, an IWMS performs best for organizations with hundreds or thousands of assets, and reveals how various departmental activities impact each other. Several major software vendors offer IWMSs. When they’re scattered across different systems or departments, the quality of data about facilities and assets can suffer—but IWMSs give managers all the features they need in one convenient package.
The following five component modules make up an IWMS:
|Real estate and lease management||As in property control software, real estate administration modules provide users with a centralized database of buildings’ knowledge, such as size, cost, condition, function, possession and maintenance costs. Generate requests for proposal (RFPs) and control a building’s entire life cycle, from acquisition to disposal. Users can also achieve charters or other specific documentation.|
|Facilities management||Facilities management emphasises guidance users manage physical construction space, facilities maintenance, portfolios, and outstanding data records.|
|Maintenance management||Where facilities management modules encourage users to manage buildings, maintenance management tools help users manage assets—like equipment and vehicles, reduce maintenance costs and keep assets at summit performance.|
|Capital project management||These characteristics encourage users to pursue the status of large, long-term capital schemes (for example, the construction of an apartment complex). This can include budgeting, catalogue management, allocating tasks and functions to workers, record storage/experiencing and invoicing.|
|Environmental sustainability||Sustainability characteristics can observe and identify excessive energy usage, water and other resources, including functionality to compose a building within LEED certification measures.|
The principal aim of an IWMS is to implement the most valuable features for equipment and real estate administration within a different software platform. It translates into many other advantages, like:
An IWMS includes many statements, so it can be easy to envision the specific situations in which the system adds importance to an organization.
IWMSs are appraised through a monthly or annual subscription fee, or an upfront license fee. Nevertheless, it’s essential to remark that most IWMSs are Web-based.
|Subscription-based SaaS or Web-based||A monthly or annual fee is typically based on the number of users who access the system and the number of assets. However, pricing models are based on square-footage.|
|Perpetual license fee||Per-user, One-time, or per-computer fee. A few products perit multiple users on a unique license, while some need an additional license for per user. Support, updates, and training have separate costs.|
