This is probably the most important page to read. At least two or three of these points hit home with everyone that visits our site.
If you’re not managing your data today, then start planning for a significant issue that is caused by your inability to access historical data. It’s just a matter of time before this impacts you.
With Facility Insite, you can escape “spreadsheet purgatory” and get your team using a consistent process that provides controlled access and logs every change that is made to your data.
When you are using spreadsheets, anything goes. And a change to a formula can wreak havoc with your plan.
School districts regularly experience the “revolving door” that occurs every 3-4 years with a change in the construction/facilities leadership role.
That change leads to a loss of knowledge regarding the planning and construction activities, and many times leads to a loss or misplacement of the planning data.
With that loss, bringing their replacement up to speed takes that much longer, and in some cases, requires outside services to help piece it back together. This is costly in time and money.
Facility Insite is your district’s consistent source of facilities and planning data.
Facility Insite provides interactive dashboards that are linked to the database. As you click on portions of the report, the data is automatically filtered to help you get right to the answer you need, instantly.
Having access to detailed or summary data like this helps you demonstrate your management of your department.
You can print to PowerPoint or PDF if needed, and of course these can be displayed on a screen for team review.
Having your data in a central location, ready for the ebb and flow of planning makes life a lot easier.
And what if your bond isn’t approved?
Not all bond offers pass, so what do you do with all that work if you don’t pass? If you are using spreadsheets, you need to make sure they are stored properly, and then get ready to do the spreadsheet shuffle again.
Facility Insite makes it easy to modify your projects and bond scenarios so that you can quickly prepare for the next election.
Access and Backup
Facility Insite is hosted on the Amazon cloud, so it is available 24/7, and we make sure your data is backed up throughout the day. Access it from your desktop, laptop or tablet.
When you are dealing with spreadsheets, the idea of someone’s system crashing and losing all your data is a real concern.
