Learn the practical applications, challenges and benefits of implementing EFR in this recorded Lunch and Learn seminar through the NYSSFA. Joe Magliocca walks through his first hand experience as the Director of Facilities at Elmira City School District.
As Next-Gen Facility Managers, having control and knowledge over your facility assets is critical for the planning and performance of your buildings. For a lot of facility managers, getting your arms around all of the assets in your buildings can seem daunting. It's important to have asset information on file, have it be easily accessible and be able to see a history of inspections, maintenance and work performed to it. There are simple strategies to ease your way into managing your assets for the future.
The Intersection of IT and Facilities
Looking ahead, the future of facilities management and EFR adoption will create an overlap between the IT and Facility departments in most buildings. If it hasn’t started happening to you yet, it will soon.

The Five D's of EFR: Data, Drawings, Documents, Dollars and Decisions
In this blog post, we will examine the all of the elements that make up an EFR System.
First, we refer to the suite or bundle of applications that manage these elements as the Electronic Facility Records Management System or EFRMS. An EFRMS enables a facility manager to securely store electronic facility data, graphically connect asset data to facility drawings, document work performed on assets, plan and budget for future facility projects and updates, and aid in decision making through robust reporting. Your EFRMS will help you manage data, drawings, documents and dollars. All of this information combined together will help you with the final “D”, decisions. Facility managers that implement and use an EFRMS give themselves a chance to make better decisions, more efficiently.
