BOSTON, MA, Sep 10, 2008 -
ARCHIBUS Inc., the #1 worldwide provider of real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management software, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of its most recent “Magic Quadrant for Integrated Workplace Management Systems” report issued July 31, 2008. “Leaders,” says Gartner’s definition of the term, “have strength in applications and platform technology, demonstrate a high level of quality in product reliability and service, have strong operational and organizational capabilities and financial stability, have global reach, and offer a strong vision of customer needs reflected in a robust development road map.”
“We are pleased to have ARCHIBUS included in the report’s Leaders quadrant,” notes ARCHIBUS President and founder Bruce K. Forbes. “Our continually enhanced software is the foundation for our Intuitive Business Transformation (IBT) initiative, an approach to making real estate, infrastructure and facilities management easier, more insightful, and highly responsive to organizational needs as demonstrated by its rapid deployment capabilities and other advantages.”
To achieve that goal of providing more sophisticated management of real estate, infrastructure and facilities, recent ARCHIBUS product additions have included the integration of new Building Information Modeling (BIM) capabilities from Autodesk, Inc. as well as Geographic Information System (GIS) capabilities from industry leader ESRI, Inc. The GIS data integration with ARCHIBUS-based real estate, infrastructure, and facilities data, for example, blends geospatial information with interior and exterior building data for more cost-efficient property management, improved site development planning, comprehensive balanced scorecards for environmental sustainability and capital planning, more insightful analysis tools for site selection and asset utilization, as well as improved operations decision support, among other benefits. “As new technologies are developed internally or incorporated from external partners,” adds Forbes, “ARCHIBUS will continue on its aggressive technology roadmap to deliver a comprehensive, high ROI (Return on Investment) solution with a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) profile.” A copy of the 2008 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Integrated Workplace Management Systems” research note can be purchased at: http://www.gartner.com/DisplayDocument?doc_cd=158057 About Gartner’s Magic Quadrant The Gartner Magic Quadrant is copyrighted 2008 by Gartner, Inc., and is reused with permission.1 The Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period.
