The Norwegian state facility operator, Statsbygg, has awarded ICEconsult a multiyear contract for implementation of nation-wide facility management system using MainManager (www.mainmanager.com). The contract was signed 29th of February at a formal event in Oslo. This agreement is by far the largest the company has made and is a tremendous recognition and opens doors to new markets. The decision was made on the basis of intensive tender and negotiation process that began early last year. 11 companies across the Nordic countries participated. Three of them were selected into the final phase, two Norwegian companies and ICEconsult. Statsbygg’s decision process included evaluation of the software, experience and vision as well as cost. The result was decisive as ICEconsult / Main Manager was awarded the highest rating in all aspects. On behalf of the Norwegian government, Statsbygg owns 2,350 buildings distributed among 600 property complexes at home and abroad. These include universities, office buildings, historic structures, prisons, royal buildings, embassies, etc. MainManager is a comprehensive Facility Management system (CAFM) used in thousands of buildings in Europe. The system supports FM processes such as development, maintenance and operations projects, construction, service level agreements (SLA), lease management, quality management, energy, etc.
Today, Mayor, Jon Gnarr, officially opened a new notification system which is based on and connected to the MainManager. The new notification system is easily accessible to all citizens of Reykjavik, through the front page on Reykjavik cities webpage.
The system gives the citizen the opportunity to point out, to the employees of Reykjavik, where and what needs to be fixed within the city limits.
The citizen can accurately pinpoint the location of the notification on a GIS map and then write a description of what needs to be done in the chosen area.
Reykjavik employees then use the MainManager’s operation & maintenance system to handle the submitted notifications.
Citizens are encouraged to notify different incidents such as damaged traffic signs, loose plates, damaged benches, broken trees, off street lighting etc. within the city limits.
