Abu Dhabi: Auberon Technolgy, a pioneering Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions company that improves facility management, will launch Optima, its third-generation computer-aided facility management (CAFM) solution, in April 2004, the company has announced in a media release.

Optima will transcend its predecessor, AuberonSpace — a software that set industry standards over a decade ago — by leveraging cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies to deliver productivity and insight, it added.

The move will help Auberon Technology stay ahead of the curve by integrating AI into its facility management solutions.

According to the company, Optima will advance operational efficiency and decision-making through its AI-driven features. This next-gen CAFM solution introduces a comprehensive suite of features to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of asset, facility, and maintenance management.

"With Optima, we are advocating for a shift in how facility management is perceived and executed. Our solution applies our innovativeness and dedication to sustainability and operations efficiency," said Dilly Aspatraj, CEO of Auberon.

Optima’s key features

A sophisticated asset and maintenance management system is at Optima’s core, the media release said. This system employs AI to provide predictive maintenance capabilities, enabling the early detection and prevention of potential equipment failures to reduce downtime and extend the operational lifespan of assets. This is crucial in supporting organizations in maintaining high productivity levels.

The platform also addresses complex inventory and service management with an intelligent inventory system that anticipates stock levels and automates replenishment processes. With this AI-driven service management feature, Optima optimises service delivery and enhances customer satisfaction through meticulous service level agreement (SLA) tracking and management.

Optima also contributes to sustainability efforts and helps organizations reduce costs. Its tools monitor energy consumption patterns and recommend strategies for energy optimization.

Administrative and operational support is another pillar of Optima's comprehensive feature set. The platform offers advanced user and location management capabilities, all within an intuitive and user-friendly interface.

Strategic and planning tools are also integral to Optima's offering, incorporating AI-driven analytics and dashboards that furnish real-time insights and forecasts. These tools assist in making informed strategic decisions, with auto-scheduling functionalities further enhancing resource allocation and maintenance planning through predictive analytics.

Finally, Optima offers features for integration and mobility. The platform ensures seamless compatibility with various systems, including building management systems (BMS), Oracle, radio-frequency identification (RFID), building information modeling (BIM), and space management solutions. Additionally, its mobile platform support enhances the flexibility and accessibility of the system, enabling the performance of management tasks from anywhere at any time.

These features position Optima as a future-proof investment for organizations, ensuring long-term value with continuous updates and improvements.

Jay Varman, head of business development, adds, "Optima will become an indispensable tool for facility managers and organizations globally. Its comprehensive yet user-friendly interface ensures that users at all levels can leverage its full potential without extensive training."

Cutting-edge technology

Auberon's influence stretches far beyond the Middle East and Southeast Asia, with successful implementations in over 500 facilities worldwide and a user base exceeding 60,000 individuals. Its solutions are renowned for their robustness and adaptability and have revolutionized facility management across various sectors, including healthcare, education, and commercial real estate.

Despite its global success, Auberon remains deeply committed to driving innovation within its home region. "Each project, no matter the scale, is a step toward our vision of a more efficient, sustainable future," Dilly notes.

With the introduction of Optima, Auberon Technology can assist facility managers, operational directors, and organizations worldwide in dealing with the challenges of modern facility management with an intelligent, AI-driven approach.
