On June 30, 2014, the College of Charleston entered into contract with AssetWorks, Inc. for a comprehensive facilities management software solution called AiM that will integrate with existing hardware and software currently in use.

Released in 2005, AiM is an integrated workplace management system software solution that will be built upon the College’s current space database information and will become a unified solution and system of record for space reporting, planning and management, capital project planning and management, contract administration, asset and inventory management, maintenance management and work orders, emergency management, and environmental health and safety.

Since 1991 AssetWorks has emerged as a leading provider of software solutions for infrastructure intensive organizations in government, education, utilities, telecommunications, transportation and the commercial sector. The AssetWorks division of the company has 210 employees, and its parent company and all divisions combined have over 4,000 employees. AssetWorks currently serves approximately 90 colleges and universities or university systems including:  Appalachian State, Auburn, Clemson, George Washington, James Madison, MUSC, NC State, UNC Chapel Hill, UGA, UVA, Virginia Tech and others.

How will it benefit the College?

The primary benefit to the College is that AiM will create a unified building and room data inventory. As with other BATTERY Project programs, AiM will allow staff members to streamline daily operations while realizing efficiencies. Also, departments will have the opportunity to review current business processes and procedures or formalize current practices. Currently, space data is maintained primarily through a homegrown system with other users maintaining their own data files for specific department needs. AiM will meet the College’s need for such things as state reporting requirements, space planning and management, maintenance (i.e. work orders), emergency management, financial audits, and capital projects.

Who will it affect?

AiM is one of the larger implementations of the BATTERY Project. Ultimately, AiM will affect every member of the campus community simply as it will be the way in which work orders are submitted. On a day-to-day basis, the primary department users will include: Physical Plant, Business Affairs, Facilities Planning, Budgeting & Payroll Services, Controller’s Office, Business & Auxiliary Services, Public Safety, Environmental Health & Safety, Information Technology, Institutional Research, Residential Life & Housing, Registrar’s Office, and Procurement.
