Understanding CollectiveView's Space & Move Management Modules

Let’s be honest, AutoCAD is a complicated program to use. A lot of facilities management systems were designed as "visual databases," meaning they require the user to interact in the CAD system for nearly everything they need to update with regards to their building or floor. This is what we call the AutoCAD trap.

CollectiveView’s IWMS software takes that trap away from the facility managers and translates the information into a visual format.  Facility mangers are used to inputting data into a spreadsheet format (Access or Excel) or a form format (on-line shopping sites).  The Space management tool used in conjunction with the Moves-Adds-Changes forms combines the inputting of information such as where the person sits, why they are moving and when they need to be moved with the visual layout of a floor plan with highlighted vacant offices. 

CollectiveView’s ViewSPACE and ViewMAC simplifies the business process and streamlines the work flow.  The ViewMAC form gathers data from a HR feed, associates the person to an AutoCAD polyline, and asks the pertinent questions that are needed for the software to update the AutoCAD, such as, when will the person move, which office/cubicle will the person move to, and why is the person moving?  As ViewMAC processes those answers, the form transmits the data to AutoCAD to recognize the square footage of the new office, update the personnel data to the HR feed (ie. new phone number or extension) and finally, display their name on the on-line floor plan for colleagues to find that person within the building.

The following day, ViewSPACE prints an output of the AutoCAD drawings to a searchable pdf format, which has multiple layers of visual information: which office is occupied and by whom, which department do they work for, how many vacancies are within the building, how do people exit the building in an emergency, and ultimately, is there cost savings to be gained by moving people into other spaces or buildings?  Facility managers are asked these questions on a daily basis by their C-level executives, peers and vendors, ViewSPACE can provide the answers to those questions in a real-time report or dashboard display.

Once those daily questions are answered, further strategic planning can be done and software traps can be avoided.

For further information or a demonstration of either ViewSPACE and ViewMAC, please contact Andrew Metzler at CollectiveView.

Summit Recap: Training & Development Summit - New Orleans

laughing delegate.jpgNEW ORLEANS, LA - A vibrant city set the scene for an energetic group of C-level, VPs and Directors at the Training & Development Summit at the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans on September 14th and 15th. With targeted appointments, attendees benefited from the perfect balance of productivity and entertainment including networking, book signings, seminars, gala evenings and lively giveaways.

Starting with the pre-event cocktail reception taking place on Sunday evening, attendees did not hesitate to make new connections while watching a lively corner of the French Quarter from balconies. 

Early Monday morning, following a brief registration and after chatting over breakfast with other attendees, vendors and delegate attendees begin to meet for the first round of meetings. "If I was looking for the opportunity to have a serious conversation with vendors and truly understand their products and services, this was the place," recalls the District Director of Talent Development at Dallas County Community College District. "I've already scheduled meetings for next week to review the activities that I participated in and to look at vendors."

For new attendees at the Summit, the set up is oddly unfamiliar in comparison to a trade show. The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans grand ballroom played a decadent back drop as the room took off with enthusiastic introductions. "I made some really great connections because of you! (An) excellent way to expose those with needs to companies that offer solutions - the format that features 'appointments' is much better than the traditional 'expo," says the Division Director at Mississippi State Department of Health.

Monday continued with a busy schedule of seminars led by industry experts including Laura Putnam, a celebrated author specializing in workplace wellness, and hiring experts Teresa Faoro Sertic and Johnny Keone Simmons - who are in search of the purple squirrel -  familiar lingo for the 'perfect' candidate. Also leading a seminar, Lisa Reuth - a prized speaker who shared her insight into training, development and retaining staff. 

By five o'clock Monday evening, new acquaintances were already preparing for the night's festivities - a cocktail reception, gala dinner followed by casino night. The aroma of garlic filled an entire elegant room set with black table cloths and red roses - Creole style shrimp simmered in a cajun sauce at a food station as guests mingled over cocktails. Following a dinner of short ribs, beautifully tender fish and sweet deserts, the true gamblers struck out for a test of their luck at casino night.

Attendees gathered around black jack and roulette tables, laughing and shaking hands as they celebrated big wins. The grand prize? A free year's worth of movie tickets from Fandango. By 10:30 that evening, guests were cashing in their chips for a chance to win and retiring for the evening for an early start again the next morning.

On day two of the Training & Development Summit, meetings picked up bright and early as attendees continued with their itineraries of meetings and seminars. An equally busy day continued throughout Tuesday, ending with a closing luncheon and prize giveaway. The Forum Team drew door prizes from Trainer's Warehouse, the Ritz-Carlton, Seiko and Laura Putnam.
