Webinar – What’s New in ARCHIBUS v25.2

Webinar – What’s New in ARCHIBUS v25.2

ARCHIBUS V.25.2 is the first full-software release that is on our target quarterly cadence. ARCHIBUS V.25.2 contains the following major enhancements:

Return to Work

Planning to safely welcome employees back to the office is a concern for all facility managers. To support a return to work, ARCHIBUS V.25.2 supports:

  • Space planning cases
  • Social distance validation
  • Auto-cleaning after hoteling

Additionally, to support maintaining a safe environment after employees return to work, V.25.2 includes the Dynamic Workplace home page.

This is available for both ARCHIBUS Cloud and the full ARCHIBUS product.

Space Enhancements

Many enhancements designed for Return to Work were trends before the pandemic and will continue going forward.

Even if you do not use the Space features specifically for managing Return to Work, you can use the features for general space planning. For example:

  • Assigning employees to phases and days of the week

  • Designating employees as working remotely

  • Assigning room statuses

Application and User Interface Enhancements

Maintenance

You can now access reference docs for archived work using the Search and Manage Work Requests task.

Capital Projects

When working with projects, you can now import and export Microsoft Project 2016 projects.

Company Logo

Administrators can now display their customer logo in the view header using the System / System / ARCHIBUS Administrator – Application Configuration / Edit Logo task. Previously, a company entered its logo by overwriting \ab-core\graphics\customer-logo\customer-logo.png. Since sites working on a hosted Cloud deployment did not have easy access to this file, we have added this task so you can upload your logo file to the database.

Workplace

The self-service Workplace view has the following enhancements:

  • Customers with a Corrective Maintenance license can now define problem types that will appear in the Workplace Service Catalog.
  • Workplace can now display a company logo, as described above.
  • Administrators can override the default Workplace colors to match customer brand colors. For example, you might configure Workplace to use a shade of yellow to match your company branding or use a red color scheme.

ARCHIBUS Company Rebranding Announcement

ARCHIBUS Company Rebranding Announcement

 

A few months ago, the Archibus + Serraview family welcomed SpaceIQ into the fold. We’d like to share some exciting news on their behalf: the new combined company will be called SpaceIQ.

SpaceIQ was chosen because it represents the full range of all three powerful product lines. As you know, Archibus is recognized worldwide as the industry-leading IWMS and the company does not want to dilute or confuse this distinct product identity by making it the company name. By the same token, Serraview is widely considered the best space planning tool on the market and they don’t want to interrupt the 15 years of momentum behind this product name.

SpaceIQ is a relatively new name in the market, but those that know the brand associate it with leading-edge technology and aggressive innovation—qualities that represent the direction they are taking for all product lines. For this reason, they are renaming the existing SpaceIQ product SiQ.

In the next year, you will see our brand evolve to reflect the changes mentioned above. We’ll launch a new website for the umbrella SpaceIQ brand and all three product lines.

Why are you changing the name of the company?

When Archibus + Serraview acquired SpaceIQ, we determined that each company name best represents the products and services it provides. After much research, debate, and future planning, we chose SpaceIQ for our combined companies.

We chose SpaceIQ because it represents the full range of our powerful product lines. As you know, Archibus is recognized worldwide as the industry-leading IWMS and we do not want to dilute or confuse this distinct product identity by making it the company name. By the same token, Serraview is widely considered the best space planning tool on the market and we don’t want to interrupt the 15 years of momentum behind this product name.

SpaceIQ is a relatively new name in the market, but those that know the brand associate it with leading-edge technology and aggressive innovation—qualities that represent the direction we are taking for all of our product lines. For this reason, we are renaming the existing SpaceIQ product SiQ.  

 

What is changing for me?

Business for you will continue as usual. Our emails, however, will change to the SpaceIQ domain. Any email you send to our Serraview, Archibus, or Archibus-Serraview emails will be routed to our new SpaceIQ email addresses. Please keep an eye on your inbox and junk folders for replies and messages from our new email addresses.

 

Will I see changes in the product?

Over time, you’ll see slightly modified logos for the Archibus and Serraview products accompanied by a SpaceIQ company logo. A slight change to each product’s  color palette will slowly be integrated. 

 

Will this change or disrupt my service?

There will be no service disruptions due to rebrand initiatives.  

 

Will there be a new website?

Yes. In the coming months, we’ll launch a new website for the umbrella SpaceIQ brand and all three product lines.
