Tablet-enabled Assessments

Trying to juggle a digital camera, a clipboard, pen, and multiple sheets of paper while collecting data for an FCA probably makes you wish you had two extra hands.

AkitaBox FCA software is accessible from your tablet, meaning you can snap and upload photos, record condition data, and add recommendations without having to lug around extra equipment.

Offline capability means never losing your work flow either in those basements or in remote locations. Have you ever lost work when the wi-fi cuts out? Never again.

Our FCA data capture app was built for speed. We recognize that every extra click adds up to be time wasted out in the field. We continue to refine and improve the FCA data gathering process. After all, time is money.

Step-by-step Guidance for Field Teams

Digital floor plans and asset mapping provide a step-by-step guide through the facility. After the initial capture of room and asset information is added to the platform, updating an FCA is a snap.

AkitaBox digital floor plans include pins to represent every asset, showing you exactly where to go and what assets to visit in each room as part of an FCA.

Easily add photos and notes and pin them to specific spots on the floor plan for future reference. Once added to AkitaBox, this data can support inspections and maintenance activities at the client site. Your building owners will love the fact that they’re getting more than just a three-ring binder.

Integrated Cost Estimation

AkitaBox FCA is connected directly to a cost database. When you identify an asset that needs replacing, you can pull up the cost data while still within the platform and associate that cost with the asset in question. No more having to look up costs separately and manually input them into your FCA.

Once you’ve created your estimates, we give you flexible tools to adjust them based on your building’s specific location or it’s complexities.

Your FCA expertise combined with the power of a cost estimation database will help you deliver the fast and accurate FCA reports that your clients will love.

Location-based Notes and Photos

Here’s where things get really cool. AkitaBox FCA not only lets you take photos and add notes in real-time while you’re out in the field gathering information. It also enables you to associate those photos and notes with each asset as you go. Need to record a water pump? Create the asset, pin it to the correct location, then fill in the corresponding information and attach photos. You’re done!

Oh, and don’t worry about trying to correctly type in all the numbers and letters on a manufacturer tag. Our text recognition technology means you can just take a picture of the tag, the software will identify any text, and then automatically pull it into the correct data fields for the asset you’re working with. Neat, huh?

Robust Reporting Capabilities

Create knock-their-socks-off final FCA reports. Our FCA Insights reporting engine is a BI (business insights) tool directly integrated into the AkitaBox system. No more manually transferring FCA data between multiple tools to generate results.

With FCA Insights, creating and using facility assessment reports and analytical insights is easier than ever before. It helps analyze the raw data and then organize it into meaningful visuals.

With just a few clicks, create all manner of custom reports – from how many assets are past their expected life spans to which equipment will be most expensive to replace.

And when we say reports, we don’t mean columns of numbers that are difficult to decipher. Our reports are visual, simple, and straightforward – all displayed in a professional, customizable dashboard.

Speed up and simplify your FCA report building process. Deliver easy-to-understand results your clients can use to make data-driven decisions. Do it all in AkitaBox.

Integrates with AkitaBox Platform and Capital Management

AkitaBox FCA software (including the FCA Insights reporting engine) is directly integrated with AkitaBox Capital Management software and AkitaBox Platform (asset & maintenance management).

That means the FCA data you collect and the results you put together feed directly into your client’s AkitaBox facilities management system. It’s easy for your clients to view and manipulate their FCA data.

They can also keep the FCA data current as work orders, inspections results, and other information from the AkitaBox platform feed into the data – resulting in a living FCA.

A living FCA means:

  • Data is easier to access and validate on a recurring basis
  • No need to start over from scratch re-collecting data for a new FCA
  • The results don’t sit on a shelf collecting dust – they become a valuable part of everyday FM actions
