Skire

Skire offers many solution options from an enterprise-wide Lifecycle approach or Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), to targeted solutions such as Project Controls, Document Management, Cash Flow Forecasting, Work Order Management, Lease Management, Space Management and more.  All individual solutions are part of the overall Unifier platform enabling customers to grow with the system over time.  From an implementation perspective, most customers will roll out capabilities in a phased manner.  Regardless of your needs, Skire’s solutions are:

Purpose-Built to support the specialized needs of the industry.

Generic applications just simply do not meet the needs of the Capital Projects, Facilities and Real Estate industries which involve unique processes, highly specialized and specific requirements, and intricate multi-party relationships.  A system that is not purpose-built will not be adopted by users – instead, users will revert to the old ways of spreadsheets and manual processes.

Flexible to support the unique needs of every customer.

Unifier is an extraordinarily flexible solution that can be configured at the application level and without any custom code. Skire has solved the puzzle of providing a tailored solution to meet specific customer needs, while fully supporting automatic version upgrades.

Deployed Quickly – The End of the On-Premise and IWMS industry ways.

Despite servicing many large customers with differing requirements, Skire delivers rapid Time to Value usually via a phased approach. The old on-premise or current IWMS curse of long and costly implementations is replaced in favor of a system being operational in weeks or months. Our proven deployment methodology eliminates the biggest problem associated with IWMS implementations – spending years and millions before getting any system use.

Simple to use via the cloud.

Unifier and its range of capabilities share an easy-to-use, intuitive interface, so once a person learns one process, he or she can quickly be productive with others.

Accessible via an Internet connection or mobile device.

Ubiquitous access is a must-have in these days of the always connected world. If you can access the Internet, you can use Unifier. From either your laptop or mobile phone.

Extensible to interface with other client systems such as ERP.

Interfacing Unifier with other existing enterprise systems is a requirement for virtually all customers.  It is usually a question of when and not if.  With a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Unifier interfaces with other systems via Web Services / XML, as well as providing other options.


Capital Project & Program Management
 

Unifier addresses the planning and execution of capital programs and projects – whether global construction programs, a single mega-project, IT project portfolios, small retrofit programs or anything in between. 

Unifier enables you to manage business processes and information through every phase of a program or project – from planning and design, through procurement, project execution, and into operations and maintenance. Regardless of the size of your organization, Skire’s Unifier easily adapts to optimize your business processes and support your teams. 

Customers can deploy whatever solution mix makes sense for their needs, from an enterprise-wide CPPM across all projects, a single project deployment or targeted solutions such as Project Controls, Document Management, Bid Management, Cash Flow Forecasting, Earned Value Management, and more. All individual solutions are part of the overall Unifier platform enabling customers to grow with the system over time.

Facilities Management

Effective facilities management has a direct impact across the enterprise. Not only do cost effective operations impact the corporate bottom line, but proper maintenance of assets leads to higher utilization rates, better resale value and improved overall employee satisfaction.

As facilities management costs are the second largest expenditure after payroll for many companies, it is critical to be efficient in the use of this budget.  Having robust facilities information, service history, and documentation – and making that information easily accessible to all relevant users – is one of the foundations of effective operations.  Coordinating resources and equipment across the enterprise is the anther key ingredient for smooth facilities management.  Finally, the power to synthesize this information and make informed decisions about the assets puts the Facilities Management team in a position to be more strategic than just managing work orders reactively.

Skire’s Facilities Management solution gives you control over all of these aspects of your facilities, assets, spaces, and other resources.  Our industry-leading business process automation streamlines management activities, automates mundane tasks, enforces business rules and empowers our users.

Customers can elect to deploy whatever solution mix makes sense for your needs, from an enterprise-wide Facilities Management solution across all facilities, to targeted solutions such as Work Order Management or Space Management.  All individual solutions are part of the overall Unifier platform enabling customers to grow with the system over time.  Regardless of your needs, an enterprise-class solution is available deployed in the cloud for Low Risk and Rapid Time to Value.
