Leading Computer Aided Facilities Management Application Now Available In The Cloud


Facilities Show NEC Birmingham UK 14 May 2013 -McLaren Software, leaders in engineering document control, project collaboration and CAFM (computer aided facilities management) solutions announce the availability of CAFM Explorer OnAir.

McLaren CAFM Explorer 'OnAir' enables facility managers take full advantage of CAFM Explorer, the leading computer aided facilities management software solution, without the need to procure, maintain or support internal IT systems.

Environmental Resources Management, a leading global provider of environmental, health, safety, risk, social consulting services and sustainability related services are the first company to take advantage of CAFM Explorer OnAir.  Darren Wannell - UK & Ireland Facilities Manager commented, "We selected CAFM Explorer to replace an existing in-house system to automate property, asset, supplier activities via an integrated help desk.  CAFM Explorer provides the functionality we required plus the added advantage of a secure privately hosted service accessible over the internet."

The addition of CAFM Explorer to the McLaren 'OnAir" service offers customers a choice of installing CAFM Explorer either on in house IT systems or on the McLaren's OnAir cloud infrastructure for a single monthly fee. CAFM Explorer 'OnAir' users simply log onto the secure service via any supported desktop, laptop or mobile web browser. 

"We are delighted to respond to the increasing demands for cloud-based hosted systems with the release of CAFM Explorer OnAir.  McLaren's 'OnAir' cloud hosting infrastructure has been proven over the past 15 years by helping customers collaborate and control documentation for construction projects from secure tier 3 data-centers in the US, UK and UAE.  Bringing cloud based services to our CAFM Explorer customers provides a safe and secure pair of hands for facility managers across the world".  Commented Paul Muir CEO McLaren Software.

McLaren are also previewing McLaren CAFM Web at the Facilities Show 2013 at the NEC.  CAFM Web, due for release later this year, is a new HTML 5 based interface for CAFM Explorer providing support for desktop, laptop and mobile devices.
