The Benefits of SFG20 Asset Mapping Software

The Benefits of SFG20 Asset Mapping Software

Asset management software offers a wide range of benefits, but at its core, is a vital tool for saving your organisation's time, money and energy. With SFG20 Asset Mapping, uploading IFC (Industry Foundation Class) or MS Excel files helps provide you with the relevant maintenance schedule for that particular asset.

Without this unique tool, businesses can spend up to 12 months surveying assets and identifying the appropriate preventative maintenance schedules. That's a lot of time and resources being wasted. This asset management mapping software eradicates time-wasting and unnecessary expenditure by providing a more efficient, user-friendly and cost-effective solution.

Using our solution, you can discover assets/asset types and associated SFG20 schedule codes, allowing you to generate maintenance plans and identify, predict and plan for future resource requirements. This saves both time and money — but beyond this, it offers users significant insight into current and future project needs.

When used in conjunction with SFG20 Resource Modeller, you can produce indicative annual maintenance costs, quantify planned preventative maintenance by task criticality and identify resource requirements. It can also be used to identify skill gaps within your organisation.

Save Time & Money

Save Time & Money

This asset management mapping software reduces the cost and time it takes to identify maintenance schedules for building assets. By providing the SFG20 maintenance schedule that matches your asset, there’s no time being wasted and no unnecessary costs — both of which can prove to be catastrophic for legacy estates. Don’t have an up-to-date asset register? It's critical that you create one. Without it, you have minimal awareness of the assets within your estate, their condition, location and required maintenance regime to remain compliant.

With such a vast array of information at your disposal, you’ll find this tool hugely beneficial for maintenance planning and management.

A Single, Accurate Source of Information

One of the critical challenges of asset mapping and establishing maintenance schedules is a lack of consistency with the information available. Essentially, industry data structures don’t all ‘speak the same language’. This makes it difficult to identify the appropriate maintenance schedules for assets and wastes considerable time on manual processes and checking the accuracy of information. With SFG20 Asset Mapping software, this is no longer the case.

With a singular, accurate and reliable source of information — there’s now consistency of asset terminology and a significant improvement in data quality. SFG20 Asset Mapping software allows asset information to be collected and registered correctly, consistently and compliantly. With multiple bodies using different terminologies for assets, structures have never been appropriately aligned…..until now.

With such invaluable data and understanding at your disposal, it has never been easier and quicker to establish your maintenance needs and put them into practice. This saves both time and money that you can invest into other crucial projects while preventing under/over-maintenance of your estate.

In-Depth Understanding of Maintenance Needs

This Asset management data mapping solution is a vital tool for gaining accurate insight into your maintenance requirements and developing a clear understanding of assets and asset types. It uses a single platform with unified asset information for utmost accuracy and clarity.

Once you import Building Information Modelling (BIM) information, SFG20 Asset Mapping software helps map relevant building assets and asset types and can produce a 3D model.* Your 3D model offers clear and actionable insight into what needs maintaining as well as the location of each asset. This process doesn't just increase the convenience of asset mapping; it informs vital maintenance decisions and increases the efficiency of many procedures.

No IFC file? No problem. An alternative method to map assets - accessible to all - is via the upload of an excel-based asset register or SFG20 completed asset template. Contact us and we’d be happy to share our template with you.

Accurate data, a unified 'language' and links to relevant maintenance schedules — an easier, more time and cost-effective way to map assets.

*SFG20 code must be included within the IFC file to produce a 3D model

  • Use 3D models to identify the location of assets to be maintained.
  • When used in conjunction with SFG20 Resource Modeller, identify maintenance costs and resources for your existing building portfolio or digital designs.
