SKYSITE, industry-leading software for construction professionals and facilities managers, today announced the release of InfoLink, a new cloud application designed to store, manage, access and distribute documents and information critical to the effective operation of buildings and other real estate assets.
InfoLink is now offered side-by-side with ProjectLink, the original SKYSITE application for active construction projects. Each solution can be used independently by separate teams, or they can be used in tandem to address information needs throughout the “plan-build-operate” lifecycle.
“We’ve managed both active project documents and facilities information for our customers for decades, and we understand their need for instant access, whether to meet project deadlines or in critical operating environments and during emergencies,” said Suri Suriyakumar, CEO of SKYSITE. “That’s why we’ve made SKYSITE bigger and better. Every document anyone will ever need to plan, build and operate a building can be found in one place, no matter where they are, with a simple tap, pinch and swipe interface.”
ProjectLink was originally introduced in 2015 to manage and distribute the continually changing documents and information used in active construction projects. Through its use, construction professionals dramatically improve communication and collaboration using cloud and secure mobile access.
InfoLink, like ProjectLink, provides access to construction documents, but it is designed to include operational and logistical information, asset location information, and archived documentation necessary for efficient day-to-day facilities management. It also meets requirements for document retention policies and information governance procedures.
The new application makes it simple and easy for facility owners to accept a “closeout” set of documents at the end of a project that reflects the building as it was constructed (usually referred to as “as-builts”), complete with operating and maintenance manuals for its equipment, locations of key infrastructure, and emergency and life safety documents. Building supervisors no longer need to hunt for information in traditional, paper-based facility plan-rooms. Instead, they can access the information they need on a mobile device when and where they need it.
In addition, InfoLink includes features to manage document retention and document purging, automate information governance policies, and otherwise mitigate risks associated with outdated or irrelevant documentation.
John Montenero, Chief Procurement Officer at the City of Palo Alto, uses InfoLink across the entire city. “Working from InfoLink has delivered tremendous cost savings, more efficient employees, and quick access to information,” he said. He selected the application because of its “ease of use, especially compared to the competition. It’s cloud-based, and the solution is designed for the industry.”
