5 Ways InfraMappa’s Smart Mapping Saves Your Facility Money

Published On: May 9th, 2024

Facility managers are constantly under pressure to optimize operations and reduce costs. One often overlooked area for potential savings is facility management itself. Traditional methods, relying on paper maps and siloed data, can lead to inefficiencies and wasted resources.


Here’s where smart mapping comes in. By integrating digital maps with facility data, businesses can gain a powerful tool to improve efficiency, facilitate operations, and ultimately, save money. Let’s explore five key ways smart mapping can benefit your facility’s financial health:


  1. Optimized Resource Allocation:

Consider a situation where a facility manager needs to locate a specific sprinkler valve buried beneath the landscaping. With a traditional paper map, they might be looking for a while. Smart mapping by Inframappa allows you to overlay data layers on a digital floor plan, pinpointing the exact location of valves, pipes, electrical panels, and more (including water, electrical, data/fiber optics, gas, traffic, sewers, and access points). This eliminates wasted time searching and reduces reliance on institutional knowledge that can walk out the door with employee turnover.


  1. Reduced Maintenance Costs:

Predictive maintenance is key to preventing costly equipment failures. Smart maps can be used to schedule routine maintenance for assets based on their location, usage history, and manufacturer recommendations. This proactive approach helps avoid downtime and the associated expenses of emergency repairs. Additionally, Inframappa’s maps allow for the visualization of asset health data directly on the map. This lets facility managers prioritize maintenance needs based on real-time data, focusing attention on equipment that’s nearing failure rather than wasting resources on unnecessary preventative measures.


  1. Improve Efficiency with Inframappa:

Enhance your facility’s operations and save money with Inframappa. By  identifying repair locations swiftly, your team can avoid wasted time and materials searching for hidden issues.  Inframappa’s pre-construction visualization capabilities also eliminate costly surprises and rework during construction projects. And in case of emergencies, Inframappa ensures  faster response times and clear communication with a transparent visual guide to your facility.


  1. Enhanced Safety and Security:

Accidents and security breaches can result in significant financial losses. Inframappa can play a crucial role in promoting safety and security within your facility. By integrating emergency exits, fire alarm locations, and security camera feeds with the digital map, you can:

  • Develop effective evacuation plans: Staff can visualize the quickest escape routes in case of an emergency.
  • Allocate security personnel strategically: By analyzing historical security incidents and traffic patterns, you can deploy security guards in high-risk areas.
  • Improve incident response: During an emergency, emergency responders can quickly access the map to understand building layouts and locate the incident site.
  1. Enhanced Workflow Management:

Inframappa is used to track and optimize workflows, particularly in facilities like warehouses, hospitals, and manufacturing plants. By visualizing the movement of people and materials on the map, facility managers can identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies. This allows for:

  • Improved routing: Optimize delivery routes and material flow, saving time and fuel.
  • Enhanced task management: Assign tasks to the closest available staff and track their progress in real-time, ensuring efficient completion of tasks.
  • Data-driven decision-making: Historical data collected through smart maps can be used to analyze trends, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions to further optimize processes.


The Power of Inframappa Analytics

Inframappa’s smart maps offer a comprehensive suite of data layers that go beyond basic floor plans. By integrating information like:

  • Water: Track water usage and identify potential leaks, leading to reduced water bills and environmental impact.
  • Electrical: Monitor energy consumption and optimize power usage, resulting in lower electricity costs.
  • Data/Fiber Optics: Visualize network infrastructure and troubleshoot connection issues quickly, minimizing downtime.
  • Gas: Identify potential gas leaks and ensure employee safety with real-time data visualization.
  • Traffic: Analyze traffic patterns within the facility and optimize delivery routes or employee movement.
  • Sewers: Locate sewer lines and access points for preventative maintenance and faster response to issues.
  • Access points, valves, and irrigation: Gain a detailed picture of critical infrastructure for efficient maintenance and troubleshooting.

These layers provide valuable insights that can be used to improve efficiency, reduce waste, and ultimately, save your facility money.
