What is FacilityForce Locate?

Locate embeds the power of Esri's ArcGIS mapping software into FacilityForce for map-centric asset management. Rather than viewing a simple list of data, Locate brings your data to life by displaying assets, work orders and more on interactive maps that allow you to show or hide layers, zoom in and out, select multiple assets, view detailed information about the assets, and perform actions on those assets. Locate leverages Esri's industry-leading geographic information system (GIS) software to enable location intelligence for your facilities and assets.

The GIS mapping capabilities in Locate provide insightful visualization of your facilities, assets, work orders and more to answer questions such as: Where are all of our facilities located? Where are all the streetlights that need to be upgraded? Where should we locate our new service center? Where, exactly are the potholes that need to be repaired? What's within proximity of the incident/emergency? Show me all the work underway in district 5.

Many organizations have both vertical assets (buildings, systems and components) and horizontal assets (roads, bridges, signals, signs, drainage, landscaping, etc.), also known as facilities and infrastructure. Locate's ability to geolocate assets makes it much easier to manage horizontal asset locations independent of the system's Region/Facility/Property/Location hierarchy (i.e., assets can simply be pinpointed on a map, such as the location of streetlights).

Some agencies/departments manage so many dispersed assets that ArcGIS has become their system of record for everything horizontal. Although ArcGIS is a great repository for this asset data, it wasn't designed to manage work orders, preventive maintenance, parts inventory, the tracking of costs, strategic planning, resource scheduling, process workflows, and all the other capabilities found in FacilityForce. As such, the ideal scenario is to use Locate to couple FacilityForce with your Esri database to leverage and add value to the asset data you already have in ArcGIS. You can even connect to multiple Esri ArcGIS databases (e.g., Facilities, Public Works, Traffic Engineering, Parks, etc.) for enterprise-wide facilities and asset management.

FacilityForce is asset intelligence. Esri is location intelligence. Coupling them together with Locate is the smartest way to manage all your facilities and assets.

Where FacilityForce Locate Excels

Locate-1-LapM

Map-Centric Asset Management

Locate brings your data to life visually by displaying facilities, assets, work orders and more on interactive maps that allow you to show/hide layers, zoom in and out, select multiple assets, view detailed information about the assets, and perform actions on those assets.

Simply pan, scroll and zoom to find the exact asset you're looking for, and then right-click to perform actions such as: View Details, Create Work Order, Create Inspection and more.

Visualize Spatial Relationships

Nothing helps you understand spatial relationships and the proximity of things better than seeing them on a map. With the power of Esri embedded in FacilityForce, you can visualize your facilities, assets, work orders and more to to get insightful answers to your questions about "where".

Get answers to questions like: Where are all the DOT facilities located? Where, exactly was the cable cut? Where should we locate our new community center? Where are the signs to be replaced? Where should we stage emergency services for the incident? Where is work being performed in my district? And so many more...

Build Upon Your ArcGIS Data

Because it's the best way to locate horizontal assets (pinpointed on a map), Esri's ArcGIS has become the de facto system of record for many agencies/departments managing infrastructure assets. As such, there's a wealth of asset data that can be leveraged and built upon in FacilityForce to then manage work orders, preventive maintenance, parts inventory, the tracking of costs, strategic planning, resource scheduling, process workflows, and so much more. Locate connects FacilityForce with your Esri database(s) to extend and add value to the asset data you already have in ArcGIS.

Define Your Scope

FacilityForce is an enterprise application that can be deployed as narrowly or as broadly as you'd like, meaning you can use it within a single department, across multiple agencies or deploy it organization-wide (i.e., entire city/county/state/federal agency).

Some customers start with a single department (such as general services, facilities) and find they can easily add real estate, capital construction, transportation, health, education, corrections, parks and more. Ultimately, broader scope can be a force multiplier as greater visibility across a portfolio leads to better alignment with organizational goals.
