“Our primary goal for the facilities audit was to develop a model to more accurately forecast for the future. With the FacilityForecast® Software system, we now have a centralized database and the ability to forecast out 20 years to better plan what we need to address and level out big ticket items each year.” – Barbara Egan, Vice President, Woodward Academy
“The assessment helped us uncover facilities issues that could have grown into larger problems over time, and zumBrunnen helped us resolve them. The database allows us to accurately budget for the future and know how much to set aside for healthy maintenance reserves.”
Lynn Robertson, former Finance and Facilities Director, The Fletcher School
