Building managers, especially on campus facilities, require up to date information on the space available to them, how it is used, and more commonly, how is this resource charged to various users. They require the ability to see how the campus is used, and have reporting capabilities on tap for project meetings. BuildIT space management is a unique combination of GIS, CAD and reporting to give managers the information the require, as they need it.
First developed for University College Dublin (Ireland), BuildIT has proved so useful to managers that it has now been redeveloped in ArcGIS, TatukGIS and Oracle to make use of newer technologies to give even greater access to information. BuildIT combines the GIS power of ArcGIS with Oracle database to give reporting power to the various building managers on campus. All this information is also available over the intranet to give further flexibility to the system.
