Vetasi and Cognito launch game-changing CAFM solution at the Facilities Show

Work, asset and maintenance management experts Vetasi, in partnership with workforce management solution providers Cognito, are to launch a new Computer-Aided Facility Management Solution (CAFM) solution at the Facilities Show on 16-18th June at London’s Excel.

The leading-edge solution, called APEX, brings together IBM Maximo and Maximo Service Provider, with Cognito’s workforce management solution: Fieldforce IQ with SmartWorker, and is the result of a three-year collaboration between Vetasi and Cognito.

APEX offers unique benefits to FM Providers through visibility of consolidated data on mobile workers, which enables real-time updates and analysis.  Users can manage Service Level Agreement (SLA) fulfilment and manage risk assessments and compliance in real-time, and highlight exceptions early enough to take corrective action by adjusting scheduling rules.

The solution provides a data-rich assessment of each mobile worker’s shift, enabling managers to measure performance.  This data can also be viewed as an aggregated workforce league table, enabling users to identify the most effective workers, benchmark excellence, and drive Continuous Business Improvement.

Vetasi and Cognito have already been appointed by Integral, the UK’s largest independent property maintenance company, to replace its legacy solution, Vixen, and paper-based systems with APEX.

Antony Collett, Strategic Director at Integral, said:  “I firmly believe that this solution will keep Integral at the leading edge of CAFM technology.”

Vetasi Director, James Fair, explains: “Using our extensive product knowledge and experience of other FM projects for companies like MITIE, ISS and Vinci FM, we’ve created a seamless integration between two market leading solutions; IBM’s Maximo, and Cognito.”

“Whilst bringing these solutions together isn’t new, what’s innovative is that this is the first time that a working integration has been developed between them to offer significant functionality enhancements in the area of workforce management, including real-time visibility of commercial and Health & Safety compliance.”

Cognito CEO, Laurent Othacéhé, adds: “This is an innovative system that enables an entirely new approach to FM: a data driven approach to systematically drive continuous business improvement and to unlock the potential of the enterprise through real-time performance management.”
