Facilities Resource Scheduling Software

What is Facilities Resource Scheduling Software?

The process of assigning a facilities resource to a need for a specified time frame is resource scheduling. Resource scheduling will prioritize personnel resources according to the goals of the facilities organization. Reducing downtime of critical assets, extending life of high value assets, reducing service calls and increasing the facilities budget are all goals which can all be impacted by Resource Scheduling.

Assigning personnel resources to scheduled tasks may sound simple, but the factors which can drive work assignment can tell us a great deal about the impact of this key process step in facilities management. Resource Scheduling requires information such as work request priorities and personnel schedules, but those only "scratch the surface" in terms of meeting the operational and strategic goals of the organization.

A key goal of asset lifecycle management is to make more effective use of personnel and assets and continually improve financial returns and  projections. Resource Scheduling which is informed by strategic metrics can help ensure strategic goals are considered in day-to-day operations and a part of the process.

Resource Scheduling is a process repeated thousands of times each year by most facilities organizations, and has the potential for great impact on strategic goals. Facilities organizations who aspire to be more proactive will usually identify this process as an opportunity to realize business results.

Our Unique Approach


Hub of Information

FacilityForce Operate informs facilities planners and schedulers with the information crucial to using resources and staff in alignment with organization needs and expectations. Whether scheduling emergency work, preventive maintenance, corrective repairs or balancing work distribution against shop bandwidth, work scheduling is equipped with an intuitive and central hub of information to prioritize work and balance shop assignments.


Work ...Assigned and Scheduled

The Team Scheduler in FacilityForce Operate allows you to filter, retrieve, and assign work in an easy-to-use, graphical interface. View work for any given shop and its people for up to a week at a time. Update job status, assign people, and view or enter notes as
needed. Drag jobs onto individual people and days to create daily assignments.


Reserve Assets

The Asset Reservations module in FacilityForce Operate provides resource availability in a visual “Gantt-like” chart to quickly make decisions. Use this module to schedule vehicles, equipment or any other reservable assets. Motor pool departments can leverage this feature not only to reserve vehicles, but to schedule vehicle maintenance and tracks costs.


Strategic Facility & Asset Planning

FacilityForce takes a holistic approach to facility and asset management, handling everything from commissioning and deploying assets, to preventive and corrective maintenance, to condition assessment and identification of deficiencies, to capital planning and improvement projects, and more. Going beyond traditional enterprise asset management (EAM) software, the FacilityForce integrated solution provides a complete picture of facility and asset costs, condition, deficiencies and expected life in order to strategically plan for your organization's mission and growth. 


Integrated Solution

The best integration is "no integration", meaning everything you need resides in a single software platform as opposed to integrating disparate systems. FacilityForce is designed from the ground up to use a common database of properties and assets, which provides a seamless experience across the board.

Whether or not you leverage them all, the fact that FacilityForce offers real estate & lease management, space management, maintenance & operations, capital planning & project management, and energy management means room for growth.
