Qube Global Software Announces Latest Release of Planet FM Enterprise | 30 December 2009

This news story relates to Qube Global Software, one of our previous brands. For more information please read the press release.

Qube Global Software is pleased to announce the release of the latest version of their leading facilities management software solution, Planet FM Enterprise.

Planet FM Enterprise is a highly functional system, packed into a design philosophy that encompasses a user-friendly, intuitive interface. Aimed at the internal facilities management function in both the public and private sector as well as external FM contractors, Planet’s carefully designed flexibility allows processes and controls to be matched perfectly to your requirements

Some of the new features of Planet FM Enterprise 4.70 include:

The ability to send SMS messages and short emails to engineers to inform them they have been assigned a work order. The email facility allows fields from the work order to be included in the subject or body of the email.  As the full PDF of the work order is not attached, this allows work order information to be read on mobile phones that support email.

Similar to email processing, there is now an SMS queue which keeps a record of all SMS messages that are to be processed.  Work order types, PM jobs and work orders have been updated to allow SMS to be selected.

The ability to reassign a work order to another engineer from the handheld work orders application means, a supervisor working in the field can be allocated work without having to return to the office.

User Calls is another new option that has been added to the Helpdesk menu. This provides you with the ability to view all the calls that have been created by the user that is signed on.

You also have the ability to log a call and work order via the Helpdesk menu, which provides you with the ability to create a work order after logging a call on the intranet.

In addition, the new handheld stock issue application which has been developed to provide you with the ability to issue stock to a work order or cost code.  The part numbers being issued can be entered via a barcode scanner if available.

Richard Fisher, Director of Planet at Qube Global Software commented: “We announced earlier in the year, at the Planet User Conference, that we would be producing two major releases of Planet Enterprise a year, one in November and one in May and this release fulfills that commitment to our customers”.

Qube Global software will continue to develop Planet FM Enterprise and we look forward to announcing further developments in 2010.
