At Fluor, prior to the installation of ARCHIBUS, preparation of monthly reports was slow and inefficient. Moreover, not all data was equally accessible to the Facilities Management team. Once the ARCHIBUS system was installed, however, all pertinent data became accessible. Ultimately, all departments benefited by being able to make informed decisions about facilities usage. Since Fluor employs some non-standard area measurements and since its finance group has some unique reporting requirements, it relies on ARCHIBUS's high degree of flexibility and ease of customization. The company's facility automation specialists appreciate the way that the system can be set to work without its users being required to master a steep learning curve.
