Use cases

OrthoGraph and connected building operation systems like


Integrated Workspace Management System


Computer Aided Facility Management System


Computerized Maintenance Management System

etc. are capable of achieving significant savings throughout the entire lifecycle of a building, in numerous fields, from construction until eventual demolition. Over the course of the expected 30-50-year lifecycle of a building, in most cases these savings even exceed the total development cost..

Savings of 5-10% can be reached when settling accounts with subcontractors when you know the precise quantities, but this saving can be made several times over in the operation of the property when you have up-to-date data, supplemented with effective planning and communication regarding subcontractors and staff.

The scale of this saving can be as much as 10-20% of the ongoing maintenance costs annually, which can accumulate to a huge saving over the entire lifetime of the building.

The situation is the same in the case of rental, property utilization; precise data and documentation are not only necessary so that good decisions are made, their presence can even represent several percent in the property’s value in the case of a sale.

The savings you can achieve differ in various fields based on how the properties are operated using real OrthoGraph BIM models and a CAFM system built on it. The keeping basis of the entire system, the up-to-date BIM models in many cases is done as a “side-product”. In other words keeping the live data constantly up-to-date does not involve any extra work or expense. As a result, communication between the maintenance personnel on-site and those located in the office becomes instantaneous, and significantly simpler than keeping in contact by telephone and, of course, in person.

The mentioned functionality and integration can be achieved by using most IWMS, CAFM and CMMS systems. The key of achieving the results is to base the operation on real-life data and making the information available not just in the office, but also on-site. Existing integration functionality is already available with several IWMS systems and can easily be extended to any kind of existing building operation or enterprise resource planning software system.
