Collaborative, GPS-enabled site and building plans enhance the accuracy and efficiency of online work orders plotted in and around properties and facilities
TUSTIN, CA (June 18, 2018)—Common Areas, the collaborative operations software that connects property owners, managers, operators, and service providers, today announced the launch of Common Plans—a cloud-based, asset mapping subsidiary. The company’s patent pending technology—when combined with Common Areas—empowers users to more accurately and efficiently locate, create, and share online work orders plotted in and around properties and facilities.
“Clear communication is the cornerstone of effective operations,” said Casey Rue, founder and CEO of Common Areas. “Common Plans advances that idea and ensures that all teams—regardless of their experience with architectural drawings—can confidently work from the same easy-to-read plans.”
Common Plans are customized, easy to understand, multi-level site, building, and facility plans that have been converted from cumbersome, technical and hard to read architectural, engineering and system drawings. They enhance the effectiveness of traditional plans by allowing users to plot and share online work orders by GPS location, building level, and asset layer (e.g. plumbing, electrical, life safety equipment, and landscaping among others).
Common Areas users, equipped with Common Plans, can more accurately and easily pinpoint the GPS location of an issue and collaborate across the entire property team of owners, managers, operators, and service businesses to help ensure that work is resolved on time and within budget —all from their mobile device, tablet, or desktop computer.
“Common Plans helps an entire building management team eliminate confusion and inefficiencies that are caused by unclear directions and a misunderstood location,” said Ryan Rauch, CMO, Common Areas. “With the various layouts and drilldowns that can be created, team members can work collaboratively to make sound decisions and achieve improved levels of productivity and operational efficiencies which ultimately find their way to the bottom line.”
