FacilityForecast® – “The Need”
Managers are challenged with volumes of data to process and analyze when evaluating multiple buildings or a portfolio of properties. Prior to FacilityForecast®, establishing accurate 20- to 30-year capital replacement and operating expense budgets took an enormous amount of time, and was often a highly subjective process. Most find the process too time consuming, unreliable, and thus, the long-term capital replacement budgeting process has not been used effectively. This has resulted in management relying on short-term budgets rather than complete cost information.
Current spreadsheet software and budgeting tools fall short of today’s need for accurate forecasting of critical capital replacement and operating expenses. CFOs, property managers, facility engineers, investors, and owners all suffer from the time consuming chore of creating these budgets, exacerbated by limited tools and resources.
zumBrunnen, Inc., having provided facility condition assessment services for 25+ years, has developed the FacilityForecast® Software System to provide accurate and trusted information in an easy to learn and use software application. This tool can be readily applied to all industries accountable for managing buildings, as well as processes and systems.
