2 Minute Drill – Hoteling Application v.25

2 Minute Drill – Hoteling Application v.25

 

When workers — whether they are on a temporary contract, typically telecommute, or are employees temporarily displaced from their offices and requiring swing space– arrive at the site, their first immediate action is to go to their assigned workspace so that they can settle into the day’s work.

Ensuring that these workers have an office or workspace to go to, that this office is equipped to meet their needs, and that the employee is notified of their assigned space can be accomplished through the Archibus Hoteling application and its tasks to create and manage the Hoteling process. From the administration and cost side, the Archibus Hoteling application supports charging departments for their use of temporarily occupied seats, assessing the utilization of booked seats, and helping you to determine if you have enough seats dedicated to the Hoteling process.

The Archibus Hoteling application is organized into a set of role-based tasks designed for the various roles within your organization. With roles and security established by a business process owner, users will log into Archibus and access just those tasks appropriate for their roles and security settings.

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.
