Houston, Texas – January 8, 2009 - Accruent/FAMIS Software is a strategic CAFM partner for ACAD-Plus. The initial partnership commenced (Prism followed by FAMIS) over 15 years ago and has continued throughout the years. In 2008, Accruent acquired FAMIS Software. The extension and strengthening of the existing partnership has been reaffirmed between Accruent and ACAD-Plus.
ACAD-Plus has enabled its FMG-Plus OEM software to be used with the FAMIS suite of products. The FMG-Plus software is an incredibly flexible and configurable platform. It is already in use by multiple CAFM systems in the Facilities Management market to integrate the facilities CAD drawings with the CAFM system database. The result is a beneficial two-way link allowing quick and visually confirmed spatial data to be sent to the database, as well as stunning graphic reporting directly on the client floor plan drawings.
“Customers today expect Integrated Workforce Management Systems (IWMS) and Engineering Document Management (EDM) systems to integrate seamlessly. The strategic partnership with ACAD-Plus allows us to deliver on that expectation and turn integration into an advantage for our mutual customers.” states Michael Ellis; CEO of FAMIS Software.
