The AssetWorks IWMS solution goes beyond traditional enterprise asset management (EAM) solutions by supporting real estate portfolio management, space management, operations and maintenance, capital planning and project planning, and energy and sustainability.

The University of Maine intends to replace a legacy environment of four disparate management tools and numerous standalone Microsoft Excel and Access databases. AiM from AssetWorks is expected to manage a broad swath of functions spanning operations and maintenance, space management, utilities management, and capital planning.

The University of Maine System consists of seven distinct public institutions of higher education. The System is comprised of over 600 structures on ten campuses and six research facilities covering a built environment of over 9.5 million square feet. AiM is expected to help a workforce of over 500 fulltime equivalents (FTEs) improve resource utilization, increase productivity and efficiency, improve decision support, enhance communication, and improve accountability and visibility across the system.

According to Ken Slaughter, senior vice president, AssetWorks, "Looking at the bigger picture, improving stewardship of facilities and real estate assets enables universities to improve the overall condition of their campuses making them more attractive to students and researchers. Along with stewardship, the cost savings from efficiency gains also has the effect of increasing the attractiveness of the institution to private investors."
