Since the introduction of ML Drawings a year ago, the concept of location-based asset mapping has gained popularity in the facilities management space. And why shouldn't it? The ability to digitize your floor plans and place and view your assets on those drawings makes a lot of sense. Your maintenance team will have an easier time identifying where assets live and you will cut down the back and forth of locating assets when working with third parties. Since the introduction of ML Drawings, we have continued to evolve the product. Here's a look at four more recent features of the application.
We held our Quarter 1 User Group webinar last week to highlight some of the new features we have released this past quarter. With a record turnout, we touched on some of the high impact new features for ML Schedules, ML Work Orders and ML Binders. Below is a highlight of the content we covered in the meeting. As always, a big "thank you" to our passionate users who provide us with many of the new feature ideas each quarter.
With that, let's take a closer look!
ML Schedules now integrates with Events2HVAC . Events2HVAC™ software automates HVAC scheduling by integrating room schedules to HVAC controls for true building automation.
At MasterLibrary, we are committed to the integrity, longevity and effectiveness of our customers’ facility data. As such, we have adopted the EFRStandard.Org standard asset fields for asset management across the suite of our software products. EFR Standard Fields are built for the modern facility accommodating many asset types that are based on smart, IP connected buildings, but still incorporate many of the classic asset types found in Uniformat and Masterformat standards.
As any facility professional will tell you, managing facilities is a major juggling act. You need to be hyper-aware of the day to day maintenance and "fires" that pop up, think long-term regarding the lifecycle of your buildings and assets, be the financial steward- setting priorities and budgets and be a leader and mentor to your staff. For school districts, keeping all of these balls in the air with limited staff and budget is next to impossible. There are trade-offs and wish lists that inevitably occur. At MasterLibrary, our strength has always been our knowledge and management of facilities and their lifecycles. All buildings go through a plan-design-build-manage model and having data and tools at each stage is critical for the long term health and planning of your buildings. As such, we have resources and services outside of software that help school districts get to their facility wish lists and support their long term goals.
