by Brianna Crandall — May 1, 2020 — Layer App is now offering busy facilities managers (FMs) an even faster way to digitize their FM workflows with new pre-designed project templates. As one of the newest computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) platforms on the market, Layer is a highly flexible and mobile-friendly CMMS touted as one of the first FM systems to integrate directly with building information modeling (BIM) software.
Layer’s fully customizable interface makes it easy for facilities managers and building owners to adapt and improve specific manual workflows to a digital format. The new project templates will allow users to onboard and implement the award-winning CMMS even faster for popular FM workflows such as work orders, asset management, and compliance inspections.
As COVID-19 has stretched FM teams and made it a challenge to keep facilities safe and clean with traditional in-person communication, digitizing FM workflows will be essential for managing remote, no-contact facilities management teams, notes the company.
Layer’s new FM workflow templates paired with the app’s robust team communication tools and BIM integration are designed specifically to help FM teams work efficiently around one digital source of truth that doesn’t rely on file servers or in-person contact, in light of social distancing requirements to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Jeff Eells, Layer’s director of Business Development, stated:
Our goal is to help FM teams spend less time behind a desk fussing with redundant paperwork and more time caring proactively for their buildings. Layer’s new project templates will make it even easier for FMs to get their workflows configured and automated. We worked with several of our key FM and building owner clients to develop these workflow templates, which are completely editable or can be used right out of the box.
Layer says its software began as a quest to create the most flexible and easy-to-use CMMS for facilities managers and building owners to care for their building’s entire lifecycle. Features include custom forms, in-app PDF/DWG markup, Revit integration, and more.
New users can test drive Layer Pro with a 14-day free trial. Layer offers per-user pricing in addition to enterprise solutions. To schedule a demo and to view the full feature list with pricing, visit the Layer website.
