Technology in the field

OFMR uses IBM’s Tririga Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) platform to assist in the day to day operation, management, and maintenance needs of Smithsonian Facilities. The CAFM allows us to draw together large amounts of facility’s data into a central location. This way the information can be combined into a coherent action plan that puts the right person, in the right place, at the right time in order to satisfy our customer’s needs. CAFM enables OFMR to plan and respond smartly to Smithsonian facility work orders.
