Across verticals several organizations are exhibiting high levels of interest in deploying IT solutions and systems.

IT based facility management solutions help facility managers to track and manage organizational resources.

Decisions related to resource utilization have both short term and long term impacts on profit making abilities in organization. These solutions track and manage the information on usage and storage of resources such as inventory, people, or property (owned or leased). Facility managers can use this information to identify patterns from past and present. On the basis of these identified patterns, facility managers can make decisions, keeping future perspective in mind. These future perspectives include several aspects such as resource utilization, space utilization, and environment sustainability among others. Strategic decisions taken based on this information help organizations to take better decisions. CAFM tools use several IT tools such as database, visual data display tools and geographic information systems (GIS) and services and then information is conveyed in graphical and pictorial form to the facility managers. These IT tools remain at the core of CAFM solutions.
