Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Planroom Solutions?
Planroom Solutions is a SAS (‘software as a service’) solution cloud based which assists owners and facility with regarding control of their facility planrooms.
2. What services do you provide?
Planroom Solutions provides a user friendly, modular cloud-based document retrieval interface that allows for immediate remote access to all existing facility construction documents.
3. What are the benefits of PS?
We have recognized that the existing document retrieval process is consistently inefficient and in the majority of instances misfiled or lost documents are never recovered. As a result, engineers, architects, and facility personnel are forced to expend additional time, effort, and cost to repeatedly document lost information.
As campus expansions occur, architects, engineers, and facility managers are constantly accessing existing documents. A further benefit of this product is to allow easy and unlimited access to the design team without the repeated cost of gathering the relevant plans and having multiple large format copies reproduced. By allowing the design team direct access via the user interface, background information can be accessed remotely, thereby increasing both efficiency and reducing labor costs.
