Customizability – available even as a hosted service

Customizability

archifm.net CAFM software is also available as a hosted service (SaaS) besides the traditional CAFM system purchase models. This means to start using archifm.net you don’t need to do IT investment, there is no need to set up an IT hardware and software environment, and in many cases you even don’t need to set up a budget for initial investment. What you only need is to subscribe for the service and start using it.

In most cases there is a demand to have the CAFM installation customized, this way it can reflect the standards of the company, and to have specific data fields, views, reports that are specialized to the requirements. It is also necessary to integrate the CAFM system into the existing ERP system of the company, so integration modules has to be created.

In case of archifm.net many of this customization can be simply done directly by the user, some of them by a partner who is familiar with the product and in some special cases by us, the vendor of archifm.net. All of these three options will result in rapid results as all modifications needs to be done on one CAFM server computer (let it be a hosted or local installation), all modifications will be instantly reflected on the users’ machines.

Customization is available in addition to the hosted models on traditional user installations too. There is nearly no limitation of what can be changed. This applies similarly to the Hosted Dedicated Cloud construction too.
