Facility Management

  • Lease Management

      OVERVIEW

      Decisions regarding the corporate leasing of buildings and assets are worth millions of dollars. If an organization makes the wrong decision or fails to meet critical lease deadlines and payments, they could end up wasting precious resources on costly space commitments.

      CenterStone provides all the functionality and tools needed to accurately plan, track, manage and maintain all aspects of both your Real Estate and capital asset leased portfolio in one system. Companies can automatically map all of their regions, buildings, floors, spaces and assets to leases, payments and reports, as well as customize global currency and floor area measurement conversions to meet specific needs.



      BENEFITS

      • Track contracts and leases for both Real Estate and Capital Assets (equipment)
      • Generate automated email notifications and alerts on all critical lease dates, notices or payments
      • Centralize lease clauses, terms and transaction information and link directly to abstracted lease terms such as rent, square footage and escalations
      • Link lease and sublease data to corporate real estate holdings and asset information
      • Analyze lease obligations and cash-flows by tracking lease payment and sublease receipts
      • Integrate Lease Management with existing enterprise financial applications such as PeopleSoft, Oracle and SAP, as well as CenterStone Asset Management software
      • Provide secure access to leasing data and documents for collaboration among employees and real estate partners
      • Ensure that critical lease deadlines, payments and renewals are met at the most advantageous terms
  • Space Management

      OVERVIEW

      Space is a vital business resource—it is critical for a facility management organization to be able to understand the cost, amount, quality, environmental effectiveness and utilization of all of the space in their real estate portfolio. Manhattan’s CenterStone technology is perfect for organizations of all sizes—from those looking to manage a single building, to Fortune 10 companies with over 100,000,000 square feet of space that require an enterprise-wide facility management solution. CenterStone’s web-based, integrated CAFM technology can be tailored to meet the needs of your organization—from the global portfolio down to the individual workspace.

      Manhattan Software’s CenterStone solution offers space planning and management tools that facility managers can use to respond to boardroom and shareholder concerns about cost controls, regulatory compliance and the effect of facilities on earnings per share. Because CenterStone’s space management tools are easily implemented, facility managers will quickly begin realizing the benefits of the software, including a tangible return on investment.

  • Space Planning

      OVERVIEW

      CenterStone software offers a visual, interactive and configurable way to format, update and report on space information. It allows users to measure space efficiency and quickly identify vacant and underutilized space that can be used for consolidation opportunities or on-boarding of new employees. Web based access to information lets you benchmark facility performance, drill down on space utilization, determine the total cost of occupancy and compare the availability of space with the business’s future demands. CenterStone comes with more than 100 preformatted reports that reflect over two decades of experience in the CAFM (computer aided facility management) industry, including BOMA, allocation and occupancy reports.



      BENEFITS

      • Gain accurate and instant visibility of critical facilities information used in decision making
      • Interface with computer-aided design (CAD) systems to associate space, personnel, asset, and EHS data with graphical floor plans and easily update this data with little or no CAD training
      • Easily collaborate with third party vendors such as interior designers, architects, move management companies and furniture vendors through full compatibility with other CAD systems
      • Comply with BOMA, IFMA and OSCRE standards
      • Increase accessibility to workplace information used in business continuity planning.
      • Increase responsiveness to workplace changes
      • Allocate space more efficiently and report on optimal utilization
      • Work closely with business units to anticipate changes and determine any "stealth growth” that might be happening in the organization
      • Map space availability (including location, condition, utilization, function, attributes and associated assets) with forecasted future demand (type and amount of space an organization may need in the future)
  • Moves/Adds/Changes

      OVERVIEW

      In today’s constantly changing workplaces high churn rates make the resulting moves, adds and changes (M/A/C) increasingly expensive. Moving a single person often involves a coordinated effort from an interdepartmental team comprised of members from facility planning, IT, telecomm, the help desk, a move management company and customer service staff. Recently, IFMA suggested that the per-unit cost averages $650 for each individual moved.

      Now consider having to move large groups of workers following a company-wide downsizing, reorganization, merger or acquisition and it’s easy to see where things can get both complicated and expensive. CenterStone’s move management application provides the most robust and easy-to-use solutions available, simplifying single-person and large, project-based moves.

      CenterStone’s robust workflow engine manages the process, from initial requests through approvals, execution of moves and post-occupancy evaluations (POE). CenterStone users can quickly design multiple "what-if" scenarios, incorporating plans for relocations, renovations, adjacencies, consolidations and corporate reorganizations—all based on existing information and/or future requirements. This data is then readily presentable to all stakeholders so that informed decisions can be made and plans executed with the utmost efficiency.



      BENEFITS

      • Seamlessly plan, manage and execute both tactical small moves, as well as strategic large scale relocations
      • Reduce employee "churn" costs by reducing the number of moves that are executed every year through more effective, proactive space planning
      • Facilitate project tracking, reporting, planning and design
      • Create an unlimited number of proposed ("what-if") floor plan scenarios to support move planning and disaster recovery
      • Automatically generate move lists with corresponding data on business unit occupation with personnel, assigned assets and inventory selections to locations
      • Distribute work orders for move execution using built-in Operations Management functionality
      • Automate one-person moves using intranet-based requests, or via simple drag and drop actions from human resources lists
      • Create move projects that reflect "as built" or "proposed" portfolios
      • Update M/A/C lists with changes for any phase of a move
  • Operations and Maintenance

      OVERVIEW

      The primary goal of facility maintenance is to avoid or mitigate the consequences of failure. Through consistent preventative maintenance, organizations can preserve and restore facilities and assets before they actually fail. CenterStone CAFM technology provides the tools needed to help businesses systematically manage the processes for the inspection, detection and correction of incipient facility and asset related failures before they occur or develop into major deficiencies, saving valuable time and resources.



      BENEFITS

      • Ensure the continued upkeep, safety and performance of facilities and assets, helping prevent breakdowns while extending facility and asset lifespans
      • Schedule regular maintenance and recurring tasks for the facility, equipment, utilities and other assets
      • Automatically generate and route work orders that include documentation, associated materials and email reminders to assigned staff and vendors (including transmission to wireless devices)
      • Link preventative maintenance work orders to asset, structural unit and HR records, allowing for per-item reporting
      • Track asset maintenance history
