FMX At A Glance
Facilities Management eXpress (FMX) is a cutting edge scheduling tool, overall maintenance planner, and general systems organizer that offers managers a dynamic solution to their organizational efficiency needs.
FMX is a collaborative tool, meaning that multiple users can share and edit a calendar-based schedule, improving organization and saving time. This allows managers not only to use their assets more efficiently, but to use their own time more efficiently. Benefits of FMX are increased efficiency, saved money, less use of energy, and longer lifespan of assets.
One key issue that FMX solves is scheduling conflicts. In facilities that have to accomodate maintenance and routine work from several different parties, it can be very easy for a certain time to become triple booked. FMX eliminates that with its centralized scheduling system.
Because FMX is on the cloud, anyone that can access the Internet can access the schedule. FMX also has strong mobile features, so managers can operate on-the-go or on the warehouse floor. Emergencies can be swiftly handled and delays predicted and dealt with.
In July 2015, FMX has released a number of enhancements, such as:
- Designating operating hours of facilities so that users can schedule events either during or after those hours
- Embeddable FMX calendar into end user’s website
- Flagging resources to prevent users from scheduling events around them
- Private schedule requests viewable by only certain user types
- Ability to display colors of calendar events by request or status
- Ability to view inventory costs within work request grid and exporting it to CSV
- Ability to enter custom resources for schedule requests
Making work orders more efficient
All users within an organization can log into the FMX work order management system and create new requests in just a matter of minutes. It’s simple to respond, assign, and resolve issues while keeping track of time and money spent.
Using QR codes to improve asset management
FMX offers a distinct QR code for each piece of equipment. This can save time by scanning codes from any smartphone or tablet to instantly obtain asset maintenance procedures and historical information, among other things.
Organizing and maintain fleet vehicles
FMX empowers customers with simple ways to assign drivers and vehicles, ensuring proper staffing while keeping track of vehicle maintenance and repair costs.
Avoiding conflicts in scheduling
FMX asset and room scheduling software prevents double-booking and enables flexible approval processes to ensure event success. Time is saved by scheduling repeating events only once, and utilize drag and drop capability for schedule changes.
