Likelihood to Recommend

Archibus

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).

Any scenario where you are managing off-site work tasks, especially if those work tasks involve virtual verification and media.

Pros

Archibus

  • 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

Archibus

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Archibus

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.
