Virtual Spreadsheet Helps Facility Managers Observe Building Asset Performance: Xyicon


Xyicon, a provider of innovative software solutions, harnessed its expertise in visualizing and managing a myriad of devices and equipment for high­performance buildings and other modern facilities with SpaceRunner — a new web­based application that serves as a visual spreadsheet for the many different things associated with any floor plan, location map or building image.

SpaceRunner equips building operators and facility managers to think outside the spreadsheet by displaying equipment, assets, and related data for any space. SpaceRunner incorporates powerful Xyicons — smart, location­specific icons — that make it easy for facility operations teams and third­party service providers to:

– Empower any user who struggles with manual spreadsheets and conventional paper floor plans to map and manage physical assets in the cloud.

– Provide users with an easy­to­use software application that gives equipment details to keep complex, multi­element projects organized, managed, and maintained.

– Enable collaboration among people and teams with a web­based central repository of spaces and things

“Today’s building, facility, and property managers are faced with deploying and managing an incredible amount of equipment,” says Xyicon, CEO and Founder Jason Chavez. “These professionals typically struggle to maintain multiple, detailed spreadsheets and conventional paper floor plans for high­performance buildings, multi­tenant communities and other large facilities. To keep pace with the complexity of the modern era, a new generation of software tools is needed. SpaceRunner allows users to map out and tag a space with smart icons representing equipment or assets placed on X and Y coordinates. These ‘Xyicons’ are dynamic data containers that enable any building operator or facility manager to harness the power of SpaceRunner and join the ‘Internet of Things’ revolution.”
