Likelihood to Recommend

AMTdirect

I think for medium to large companies AMTDirect would be invaluable to have the "whole" picture of all properties at your finger tips. For smaller companies with 10 or fewer properties maybe not as "necessary".

Archibus (ARCHIBUS + Serraview)

Archibus is well suited for organizations requiring heavy reporting functions, and that have complex processes for managing moves and space chargebacks. It is less well suited for organizations that require input from multiple users (such as doing an employee seating survey).

Pros

AMTdirect

  • AMTDirect allows for customization to your specific needs in a snapshot. One area I appreciate is that I am able to change most labels/field names to coincide with our specific naming conventions.
  • AMTDirect has wonderful support. They respond very quickly and I always feel that I am important and matter to them.
  • AMTDirect is always interested in what I would like to see added to be even more useful to my needs. They listen to me and strive to make those changes.

Archibus (ARCHIBUS + Serraview)

  • Floor Plans provide dynamic reports group by floor, department, location, room type and function. It is very useful for space planning against budget.
  • Building Operations allow users to log a request for repair. The workflow will alert different business areas to respond in a timely manner.
  • Condition Assessment allows us to audit the current condition of building, equipment, furniture and others.

Cons

AMTdirect

  • Initially when I started using AMTDirect it was a little overwhelming because it is a lot of detail. At times I would like to see it a little more simplified. However, I will say they have over the past 6 years done that exactly. It is becoming more simplified to use, but with the same important outcomes.
  • The software is much faster than it was when I initially started using it. Some of that might be resolved if there were some drag and drop type situations more I think.

Archibus (ARCHIBUS + Serraview)

  • User Interface could be improved - it takes many steps to get to features within Webcentral, too complex, created for power users.
  • Pricing and fee schedules - surprised to find that they charged separately for Space Chargeback features within Space Management and annual maintenance fees.
  • Slow interface.

Usability

AMTdirect 8.2
Based on 1 answer
From my experience, AMTDirect does have a bit of a learning curve, but once you pass that curve the system has details and information that are vital to the decision process of lease negotiations, lease & facilities management as well as project management. I've said it a thousand times, AMTDirect is the only reason I am able to manage 50+ retail spaces by myself with regards to all of the above decisions.

I have not listened to any of the on-line video or webinars, but I have used the "help" guides and they are very easy to understand and for the most part that is how I have taught myself to use features I have never utilized before.

Archibus (ARCHIBUS + Serraview)

Archibus compares well with other IWMS software when it comes to integrating with BIM models and reporting capabilities. I selected Archibus as it has all the tools and processes needed to manage space and moves, with the intention to expand to other modules like Lease Administration and Asset Management. The constant upgrades to Archibus also helps to keep the software up-to-date with other third party products such as Revit.

Return on Investment

AMTdirect

  • AMTDirect has positively impacted our company for the simple fact that 1 person is able to handle 54 properties with regards to lease management, maintenance/repair and projects for those locations. We were at the point of needing to hire additional help, but AMTDirect has made it possible to delay hiring additional employees until we grow a little more.
  • AMTDirect has made it possible to be able for me to work from any where and not in an office with a bunch of files, because the information is at my fingertips. I am able to travel to our stores and still be able to take care of issues and answer important and at times timely questions.
