This centralized repository enables improved forecasting and budgeting to optimize operational effectiveness. Raise customer satisfaction levels by empowering requestors and communicating with them at every step of the process with ARCHIBUS On Demand Work.

Simplify the Maintenance Process

As part of an easy-to-deploy Web-based platform, On Demand Work provides an intuitive, self-service environment for work requests, which can be easily extended to your entire organization. Deployment of On Demand Work frees operational managers from daily administrative tasks allowing them to spend more time improving overall service delivery at a lower cost.

Reduce Operating Costs

On Demand Work cost-effectively manages the flow of work requests and work orders to either internal or external work teams. The application also reduces the cost of reporting based on efficient data capture and reuse when compared to the inherently resource-intensive efforts required for paper-based processes. In addition, On Demand Work provides a Planning Board™ function to help supervisors easily and effectively plan work and schedule craftspersons. This function integrates pre-defined rules such as service windows and vacations/holidays when assigning work tasks. Supervisors can prioritize work effectively, ensuring critical tasks are handled in a timely manner.

Enforce Standards with SLAs

Integration of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and role-based security ensures customers get the level of service defined by SLA parameters.

Improve the Planning Process

By capturing data centrally on maintenance costs by division, department, building, equipment, problem type, among others, ARCHIBUS On Demand Work helps managers plan effectively for budgets and optimize service levels.
