Implementation Services

Most of our customers choose to engage ISM Services, Inc. with Implementation Services to minimize Cost to Implement, manage Risk, and maximize their Return-on-Investment. ISM Services, Inc. is an ARCHIBUS Value-Added Reseller (VAR) and a member of the ARCHIBUS Developer Network. Our many successes in all varieties of deployments enable us to swiftly deliver solutions that fit our client's needs, allowing them to focus on their core business.

Personalization

No two groups or organizations are ever alike. We all have unique names for things and places, as well as needs for information. For this reason, most of our larger customers engage ISM Services, Inc. to personalize the ARCHIBUS platform to suit their organization. Personalization reduces the training required for personnel to become familiar with the system and produces reporting that is more relevant to the organization, increasing the adoption of the platform.

System Integration

The modern IT environment is a complex web of related systems, each aimed at the specific needs of the group that they support. ISM Services, Inc. helps its customers cut through the noise by offering to integrate ARCHIBUS with the other Systems of Record that the organization uses. Pulling information from these other systems leverages the resources of the other systems, while minimizing the resources required to operate the ARCHIBUS system. This process greatly increases the Return-on-Investment by greatly reducing the administrative and operational overhead required.

Integration with AutoCAD, REVIT, or GIS

Almost all of our customers request that ISM Services, Inc. also assist in the deployment of the Overlay(s) for AutoCAD, Revit, and/or ESRI ARC-GIS. These 3rd party design and analytics tools allow the ARCHIBUS database to aggregate data from architecturally accurate drawings and designs, eliminating the guesswork needed to measure every space. They also allow graphic depictions of where resources, people, and assets are located. Users can zoom into the inside of a building to see where an individual sits, produce a highlighted chart of which groups are using which areas, or estimate the effort required to relocate anywhere on the globe.

Technical Support

ISM Services, Inc. is an expert in delivering customized infrastructure workplace management solutions (IWMS) for our customers. We have hand-picked our staff with the appropriate experience and expertise that our clients seek. Additionally, we employ a staff that maintains the highest levels of security and are capable of performing services in highly secure areas of government.

When it is necessary, ISM leverages client support with the Global ARCHIBUS Business Partner community. ISM choose strategic partnerships based on past performance and reputations in the community, selecting business that will provide the best partnership for each client, specific to their needs. We are prepared to expand our partnership in support of the TCPN Member Agencies as necessary, from within the Business Partner community, assuring that all partnerships provide TCPN Member Agencies with the same level of support that they deserve.

ISM support is managed through our main office location in Carmichaels, PA, but calls and emails may be routed to our other location, remote employees throughout the US, or any of our strategic partners. Because we are able to work with other Business Partners, we are able to quickly respond to the customers needs.
