by Shane Henson — September 19, 2011—Facilities managers now have a new tool to gather accurate facility condition data on the buildings they manage through a new offering by VFA Inc., a provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management. The company recently announced the release of version 3.0 of its guided facility self-assessment solution, VFA.auditor, featuring iPad support for mobile surveys.
VFA.auditor is a Web-based, guided self-assessment solution that provides facilities and building managers with surveys to assess and rapidly collect data about the condition of their facilities and major building systems, whether their facilities are grouped on a single campus or geographically dispersed. With more than 600 professionally engineered and designed systems included in the survey library, VFA.auditor leverages VFA’s building condition domain expertise to guide and standardize the efficient collection of facility condition data.
This latest release of VFA.auditor expands support for mobile devices, enabling the flexibility and versatility of condition assessments using the market-leading Apple iPad. The VFA.auditor support for the iPad now extends beyond the previously released support for Windows-based tablets.
