IT Asset Management Software

Using Computer-Aided Facility Management Software (CAFM)

Maintenance Management
ALPHA’s Compute-Aided Facility Management (CAFM) experience includes implementation and adaptation of existing systems, definition of upgrades and new systems, system implementation, and ongoing operations maintenance and support. ALPHA’s approach merges suitable business processes with the right software tools and technologies. ALPHA has extensive experience providing maintenance and technical support for the Department of Defense Education Activity’s (DoDEA) database tool set used worldwide by DoDEA’s technical and management personnel. ALPHA has been entrusted to provide a design and enhancement system that will be DoDEA’s next generation facility management system.

ALPHA has extensive experience scanning, creating, updating, and vectorizing blue line drawings in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Software. Our capabilities also include migration of 2-dimensional CAD environments to 3-dimensional Building Information Modeling (BIM) environments. The BIM process involves the generation of building data and assigning it digitally to a three-dimensional model of a building and then managed through its lifecycle. This type of model assists your organization with site logistics, scheduling of employees, as well as the general layout of your site. BIM and CAD are key components to ALPHA’s facility asset planning services. The process of involving the generation and management of digital representations of physical and functional characteristics of a facility can be integrated to all projects. The resulting building information models become shared knowledge resources to support decision-making about a facility from earliest conceptual stages, through design and construction, through its operational life and eventual demolition.

IT Asset Management Software

APPS Overview
APPS is a web-based application developed by ALPHA Facilities Solutions for facility condition assessments. APPS is a software system that uses a robust scalable relational database engine based on SQL that meets or exceeds every requirement of your request for proposal. It is Open Database Connection Compliant (ODBC) and accessible through your Intranet, Internet or as a true Application Service Provider (ASP) application.

APPS manages information on facility deficiencies. This robust database software application can help justify requests for funding, becoming the foundation for a capital renewal and deferred maintenance (CRDM) program. Designed for facilities assessment and evaluation, APPS provides a reliable method for inventorying, estimating and tracking facility deficiencies; predicting backlog and capital renewal funding requirements; and planning projects using its database sorting features. APPS data resides on a password protected server.
