Comprehensive Benefits of Facilities Management Software
Facility maintenance or management software performs a myriad of complex functions, so it’s good to proceed with this guide having a list of your organizational needs in mind. It’s also good practice to think about how you’ll benefit from having one software over the other, and whether or not a piece of software that fulfills your needs and integrates well with other FM technologies (of which there are too many to name). The big two are computer-aided facility management systems (CAFM) and computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS).
These two technologies are a part of FM software, but they perform separate functions. The good news is this software more often than not integrate well together, providing both modularity and flexibility for your asset management needs. In this guide, we’ll cover those differences and how they relate to making a purchase. For a more in-depth look at the difference between the different types of facilities management software, you can read this article, or read on for a brief explanation.
A Brief Rundown on The Tech
Computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) are software systems that drive your facilities and maintenance efforts. To be clear, CMMS is primarily used to manage equipment and maintenance. If your organization is a heavy user of the equipment, you might find yourself getting the most use out of this software.
On the other hand, computer aided facilities management software (CAFM) is used to manage administrative tasks, such as tracking items, monitoring facilities/worksites, and handling third party-contractors. It is often made to integrate with CMMS, computer-aided design (CAD) systems and building information models (BIMS).
Organizations are finding that they can’t often get by with just a CMMS or CAFM — they need both. And thankfully, these two integral pieces of software are highly adaptable to a litany of different industries and uses beyond maintenance and asset management. Those industries can include:
- Higher education
- Groundskeeping functions
- Third-party contractors
Given the diversity and flexibility of asset management software, it’s not surprising to see that it’s used across the spectrum of business operations. When people think of facilities management software, they might think of custodial or groundskeeping work. Those fields do utilize CMMS and CAFM tools to track maintenance and work orders, but FM software’s functionality goes far beyond just those two functions.
In this guide, we’ll cover what those unique functions are, where they can be used, as well as the most valuable features to consider when selecting your asset management tools.
Expert recommendations and analysis on the top Facility Management Software
Companies that are managing their assets and work orders on spreadsheets and other basic tools could stand to benefit from implementing CMMS and CAFM software into their workflows. Here are a couple of implementation goals that can be achieved through maintenance software:
Gain a Powerful View of Your Facility
Ultimately, your asset management software is designed to provide you with a powerful view of your facility.
This overview is a multifaceted assessment of your company assets, vehicles, tools, schematics, floor plans and more. The aim of aggregating and pooling your resources into one handy program is to provide you with as much actionable intel as possible. You’ll be able to use this overview for a variety of functions — everything from asset management to lifecycle to tracking, warehousing and beyond.
To achieve this overview, facility software like CAFM and CMMS systems interface with one another. Usually combining these two programs (and others) is an out-of-the-box feature of FM software. This is typically referred to as integration, which just means that the tiny moving parts that belong to a suite of FM software will hook into other vital pieces of software that comprise a solid facilities management system. Because facilities are complex, require maintenance, upkeep and constant vigilance, there’s a wealth of software out there to meet your needs, and by making sure that it integrates well together you can drive down costs.
Track Your Inventory and Plan Ahead
Your assets are going to be used by your technicians and employees constantly. Therefore, you’ll have to do maintenance sooner or later. Good FM software is going to show yourself and your technicians what inventory you have left, where it’s located, what condition it’s in and more.
Inventory tracking is all about digesting and delivering data. You should focus on aligning your inventory stock with your:
Reduce Reliance on Older Tools and Streamline Asset Management
Spreadsheets, pen-and-paper, text documents — sure, you could use these to do facilities management. They could even grow into sophisticated systems (eventually). But they’re nowhere near as efficient, and they lack the scalability you find in specialized maintenance tools.
You don’t get live updates on inventory and asset condition with older tools. Nor do you get work order management, third-party contractor management and much more.
Reduce Churn Rates and Cut Down on Inefficiencies
Churn is the process of moving assets (and employees) around. Naturally, this produces waste and eats up productivity. The benefit of CAFM applications are that they cut down (significantly) on all of this by optimizing moving routes, asset allocation and more.
Need to set up a new employee with the standard tools? CAFM software will allocate tools from its general pool, locate them from the closest storeroom, assign, track and manage those assets. It brings the power of data to the ordinarily arduous and costly task of moving and onboarding.
In order to achieve these goals, however, you can’t simply go ahead and implement the first system you find. You’ll need to choose a system with the basic manufacturing features as well as the advanced tools you need. In order to decide which features are necessary, come up with a list of manufacturing software requirements. The rest of this article will address what you need to consider as you create this list.

Basic FMS Platform Features and Functionality
In addition to being a great company, you also have to be able to show it. This makes integrated financial reporting the most important feature in a manufacturing ERP system. Being able to track how improvements in production planning, scheduling and workflows translate into reduced costs are a must-have in any manufacturing ERP software. Look for ERP systems with job costing, advanced cost allocations, integration accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, bank reconciliation and fixed asset accounting.
The best ERP systems for manufacturing companies will support these foundational features while providing financial reporting to capture how improvements on the production floor translate into reduced costs, higher quality and increased revenue. The majority of manufacturing ERP systems today support general ledger (GL), fixed assets, cost- and accrual accounting-based workflows, budgeting and project accounting, often all integrated to a common system of record or database.
At a minimum, a manufacturing ERP system needs to support requirements planning, master production schedule (MPS), capacity planning, bill of materials, shop floor control and project management. Taken together, these functional areas of manufacturing ERP software makes it possible to operate a production center efficiently, tracking performance back to financial reporting.
Advanced ERP systems have these modules integrated into a common database or system of record. Requirements planning is essential for creating and tracking production and inventory control plans while taking into account material requirements, lead times and dependencies in supply chain visibility and supplier delivery performance.
Scheduling is one of the primary tasks that a CMMS performs. With a scheduling platform, you can set up deliveries, maintenance tasks and much more to meet the demands placed on your facility.
When you have a work order, you are able to assign a time for it to be completed and then assign local resources to go and complete the order.
You shouldn’t underestimate the importance of scheduling functions either. Not only do they help your business run smoothly, but they also put the right resources in the right hands — at the right time. That’s the key here. It certainly doesn’t make any sense to send out a tech to an important job when the tools they’re using are due for repair any second.
|Physical Building Administration||
This is one of the most popular core-features for CAFM software. The best maintenance software can be hooked up to building infrastructures like HVAC equipment and more to manage your facility from afar. Managers can set temperatures, lock doors, enable facility equipment and more — all without ever leaving their cellphones or web portals.
Some CAFM systems even offer basic analytics packages, showing you heatmaps of your building, energy usage and resource expenditure. This gives managers insights into how their building is being used, what they can optimize and how they can ultimately save on costs like energy.
As facilities and their assets see continued use, they’ll eventually break down and need repairs. CAFM software can help managers make long-term decisions about purchases, future needs, enterprise planning and more.
Think of lifecycle management as a rough timeline for your assets. It tracks the tool’s use across its lifecycle; who used it, for how long, what its model is, what it cost, when incremental repairs took place and when it’s finally time to be replaced.
By using lifecycle management software, you’re able to plan for repairs, predict inventory and prepare for potential replacements.
Facilities management software isn’t just for maintenance workers or facility managers. It can also augment the work of office staff and administrative support on top of its other functionalities.
Tracking packages, materials and keeping a close eye on the things that come and go from your facility is another function of FM software that can go overlooked. Say you’re transporting hazardous materials. CMMS software will help you see when it arrives, who is carrying it, what it’s made of, and when it leaves your facility. If there’s ever an incident, facility software’s rigorous tracking systems will help with the documentation that’s likely going to be needed after the fact.

Secondary Facilities Management Software Product Features to Consider
Managing a diverse range of assets, from tools to human capital, requires a lot of advanced planning and moving parts. You’ll hear this from every piece of software advice you read, but your business is indeed unique and will require a special touch.
We can only recommend features that we think are a good fit for most companies. Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to software, especially asset management software. We think this is still a good range of features to start with beyond the basic suite.
|Floor Plans and Space Management||
When managing a piece of property, it’s essential to know what your property actually looks like. That’s where CAFM software and BIM integration comes in.
You’ll get a nice, interactive view of your building, property or facility, giving you even greater asset tracking and routing abilities. If a tech is lost, you’ll be able to guide them to where they need to be. You can better allocate resources and optimize available storage when you know where everything is and where it’s going.
|Work Order Management||
You’re going to be getting quite a lot of work orders coming through on a daily basis. That’s the reality of owning a facility — things break down, they need repairs or replacements. A good piece of FM software is going to have an excellent work order management system.
Most FM software will have work order management features in some way, shape or form. But because this is such a crucial feature for this type of software, it may be beneficial to request a demonstration to see for yourself if their work order management systems will meet your needs.
|Employee Interfacing and Live Updates||
Empower your workers with mobile asset management check-in.
When you assign someone to go out on a job, you get live updates on what stage of the job they’re in and when they’ve completed their work. A lot of modern CAFM and CMMS software can “check in” with managers via specialized applications on smartphones. This also has the added benefit of allowing you to track worker's progress, and then assign additional work or tasks based on the pace of the progress or estimated completion time.

How to Compare Top Facility Management Software Vendors
A vendor’s reputation, experience and history are all things you should consider when crawling through lists of vendors and software. And that doesn’t take into account unique features that might steer you towards one piece of software over the other. If you don’t have a list of requirements yet, you can use our RequirementsHub to help you build one for your business needs.
Want to simplify this process? Start your search by knowing your requirements early on. No two businesses are going to have the same exact list of requirements, so it’s good to know in advance what your needs and wants are, as well as what you can safely compromise on and implement. To make things easier on you, we offer a helpful requirements template to guide you in your search for facility management system software.
To go a little further in giving you the tools you need to start picking out the right facilities management software, check out our comparison report to see detailed comparisons between the different types of FM software. This will allow you to start shortlisting vendors right away.
Finally, use our facility management software pricing guide to further narrow down the list, until you’ve got at least three to five vendors who you think will cover most of your needs.
Questions to Ask Yourself
In order to determine what you'll need to do in order to start using FM software, you should sit down with key stakeholders and ask yourself a set of questions geared towards your facility, your wants and needs.
Will there be a need to commit specific IT resources or personnel to this software and its deployment?
Getting support from developers can be a real concern. If there’s a system-breaking bug or feature you’d like to see, you’d want your software vendor to be on top of implementing fixes or features. This is especially true of cloud-based FM software, where you can’t customize the software on your own and are reliant on your vendor to provide patches and updates. Here are some additional questions to ask:
- What is our current system like, if any, and what are our current IT requirements?
- What are our IT resources? Will we need to bring on additional resources to acquire FM software?
- Does this software require constant monitoring?
- What is the user-level of the facility management software?
Will implementing this software put us under or above budget?
In most cases, and unless the software is absolutely essential, going over budget is hardly warranted. This is a talk that needs to happen between your organization and your vendor. You can likely assess the costs while in the "request for quotation" (RFQ) stage of buying maintenance software. More on that can be found in our data analytics RFP guide.
What remote management capabilities do we need?
Remote management is a powerful feature of facilities management software that can save you money and give you peace of mind. We covered this earlier, but for a quick refresher: Remote management features for CAFM and CMMS software can do things like hook up to your HVAC equipment, lock doors, lower/raise room temperature and more, all while feeding you usage data. Save time, energy and money by using software that has a powerful remote management suite.
Will we need software that scale and grow with us as our organization gets bigger?
As your organization grows, you’re going to need software that grows alongside it. Buying the right piece of software initially can ease growing pains, or at least take one worry off your plate. Your maintenance software should keep pace with you, and you don’t want to have to re-buy software when you make the jump from small business to medium-sized. Here are some additional questions to ask yourself:
- What is our current facility's proportions, and do we expect them to grow?
- Will this software accommodate additional facility expansion?
- Do we have the resources needed to manage new facility or business growth, and will this software keep up with those resources?
What will deployment look like for our organization?
In today’s world of always-on and always-available software, you’ve got more options than ever for your software deployments. This brings us to a debate that gets increasingly complex as the years go by and technology improves: Software deployment. Between the cloud, hybrid and on-site, you’ve got lots to consider.
Deployment is different across all organizations, and unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Though with a cloud installation, this can be significantly easier. Cloud deployments are largely handled off-site by the vendor and potentially a third party.
There are a few benefits to a cloud installation that are worth looking into. With the cloud, your services are often cheaper than on-premise. Instead of paying potentially thousands of dollars for software, you’ll more than likely pay monthly for a subscription-like service. They’re also hands-off for the most part. Maintenance, upgrades and monitoring are handled by the vendor, so you don’t need to worry about diverting IT resources to your software.
Mobile is the future for FM software, and cloud installs are almost always compatible with a companion app or responsive web portal. And the best part? Those apps or web portals are always on and ready to perform maintenance tasks remotely.
Of course, there are also advantages to having an on-premise installation. On-premise is software that you own and can customize without having to wait for a patch from the vendor. In the case of cloud solutions, you’re limited by whatever features the vendor decides to implement, and customization is usually kept to a minimum.
On-premise also gains an advantage in user switching. A cloud installation will have you make accounts for your users, or you might be limited to just one account. On the other side of the fence, on-premise won’t limit you, and switching between users is a breeze.

Questions to Ask Vendors During Facility Management Software Demos
How active is the vendor in developing and maintaining their product?
If the vendor isn’t active and transparent about fixing their own product, seriously consider dropping them from your search. Facilities are constantly evolving entities, and your facility management system software should be too. Software updates and bug fixes shouldn’t come years after you’ve purchased the software.
What is the vendor’s installation and integration methodology?
Integration is a key component to FM software. It’s what brings all the little pieces of maintenance management together to work.
You’ll need to know whether or not your systems are going to be compatible with maintenance management software. Is it going to play nicely with your other software, and potentially integrate with it? And how does the vendor expect you to install it and maintain it? Will it sit on a server and pull in resources from other programs, or is it just going to be installed on the bosses computer and live there?
When thinking about integration, find out from the vendor what their methodology is, and then check in with your IT team.
Does the vendor have a solid record for delivering on-time and within budget?
If a vendor can’t meet your deadlines, you have two choices: Rethink your deadlines, or rethink your vendor. This same thinking can be applied to your budget.
Are any of the vendor’s strategic partners and customers willing to speak on their behalf and become references?
Often times the most powerful form of communication and marketing comes from a third-party speaking candidly about a brand, product or company. It’s worthwhile to ask and see if any of the vendor’s past and current customers would be willing to offer any kind of insight into what their experiences working with the vendor.
Consider reaching out to customers of the vendor. They’ll often be listed on the vendor’s website. Sometimes called partners, these third parties can provide an invaluable perspective on the shiny piece of software you’re thinking about dropping potentially thousands of dollars on.
The advantage of getting an outside perspective is that you can often hear about scenarios that the vendor hasn’t accounted for, and find out how the software performs “in the real world.”
