e-News from Eclipse-fm®
Eclipse-fm® Summer Summary
Initial details of two new facilities, Small Schemes Project Management, and Mobile Asset Survey were made available. The former is a much requested bringing together of the data that Eclipse-fm® manages in a way that will considerably enhance the overall picture of how specific projects are performing, while the latter illustrates how mobile working using portable devices is really coming to the fore. We look at this prospect in a little more detail here.
WebEclipse is now starting to generate some serious usage. Isle of Wight NHS PCT, which is a little unusual in that it both commissions and provides all health services for those on the Island and with a spread of geographically dispersed sites has been particularly pleased with their WebApp usage, with 40% of all ad-hoc tasks being created directly by general staff rather than by FM department staff within a few months of introduction. This has allowed FM staff to generate a "virtuous circle" , with FM staff being freed up to actually do the "FM job", improving service levels and becoming pro-active instead of reactive. It has also been very popular with ward etc staff, as indicated by that 40% level of self-service maintenance request creation.
