- PenBay Solutions, the global leader in facilities GIS software, has published a new case study about the adoption of InVision FM by Beaufort County School District (BCSD) in South Carolina. InVision FM is helping BCSD achieve their goals for consolidating facilities data into a single platform where it can be more easily accessible to planning coordinators, construction managers, security officers, principals, teachers and emergency personnel.

Based on Esri® ArcGIS®, PenBay InVision FM gives facility managers a better understanding of their facilities through a rich spatial representation and map-based visualization of their assets, spaces and buildings across a campus, region or portfolio. As a result of their implementation, BCSD is saving time and money, improving security and even providing additional educational opportunities for their students.

"Our department's mission is to manage, build and renovate buildings on time and under budget," said Carol Crutchfield, Planning Coordinator for the BCSD Facilities Planning & Construction Department. "PenBay's solution offered the most promise in achieving these goals."

"BCSD was looking for a centralized system where they could log in, pull up floor plans and related documents and data so they could more effectively visualize and manage their space and campuses," said Bill Barron, CEO, PenBay Solutions. "These needs are not unique to BCSD and we expect that organizations reading this case study will start to see the potential of a facilities GIS solution to meeting their own facility management goals." PenBay is delighted to have partnered with the engineering, design and facility program management firm Heery International in bringing this solution to Beaufort County School District. Heery is a subsidiary of London-based Balfour Beatty plc.
