Maintains Leader Position Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision
BOSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 28, 2012 — ARCHIBUS Inc., developer of the #1 solution for real estate, infrastructure, and facilities management software in the world, was positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Integrated Workplace Management Systems” 1 report by Gartner, Inc.
“Leaders,” says Gartner’s definition of the term, “have strength in applications and platform technology, demonstrate a high level of quality in product reliability and service, have strong operational and organizational capabilities and financial stability, have global reach and offer a strong vision of customer needs, reflected in a robust development road map.”
“We are once again gratified to be included in the Leaders quadrant and appreciate the Magic Quadrant report’s recognition of the importance of continuity in integrated solution suites from a single vendor to ensure seamless operations and a better customer experience,” said ARCHIBUS founder and CEO Bruce K. Forbes.
“Moreover, we are continually adding leading-edge capabilities so our users can leverage BIM and GIS with our technology extensions to Autodesk (AutoCAD/Revit), Esri (ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Server), and Google (Maps and Earth). We have also recently introduced new applications and enhancements to our suite of environmental and risk management solutions that help organizations achieve their sustainability and business continuity objectives.”
Gartner recognized ARCHIBUS software as a Leader for these notable reasons:
- ARCHIBUS has a strong international presence (its revenue is about equally divided between the three major geographies), and through its Federated Eco-System of partners and ASCs, ARCHIBUS’ products and services are available in over 190 countries and 30 languages.
- ARCHIBUS offers a full range of integrated IWMS functionality and is particularly strong in real estate, facility and building operations management, asset management, building information modeling (BIM) 4.0, and environmental sustainability and risk management
- ARCHIBUS’ integrated commercial off-the-shelf structure allows for rapid time-to-value deployment (for example, actionable results within 90 days, depending on implementation complexity), and is relatively scalable for small, medium and large organizations.
“Clearly the rapid time-to-value provided by ARCHIBUS is based on its robust interoperability with other ERP systems, its Connectors ™ -- for consolidating data integration with HR, space, occupancy and financial information -- and its robust Web services platform,” said Forbes. “With over 30 years in the industry leadership role and, as new technologies are developed internally or incorporated from external partners,” adds Forbes, “ARCHIBUS will continue on its aggressive technology roadmap to deliver a comprehensive, short Time-to-Value, high ROI (Return on Investment) solution with a low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) profile.”
ARCHIBUS Enterprise Information Modeling (EIM) and seamless integration with other ERP systems, as well as architectural and geographic information systems, empower ARCHIBUS users to transform their organizations and achieve their goals more efficiently and effectively.
The ARCHIBUS offering is available through a variety of options: ARCHIBUS On-Premise™, ARCHIBUS Hosted Services™, ARCHIBUS On-Demand™. Many customers take advantage of ARCHIBUS SaaS™ offerings that utilize all of the above options.
“Through our Customer Experience Management process,” says Forbes, “there is direct communication flow between ARCHIBUS and users who can choose to participate in over 50 local, regional, national, and international users’ groups, as well as other ARCHIBUS-sponsored conferences, forums, and social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo, and YouTube.”
