Mike Nelson, Director of Property Services, Liberty Living is finding CAFM Explorer enables him to rest easy with his maintenance requirements for their student accommodation. Liberty Living’s portfolio provides top quality student accommodation in over 40 sites which are located close to many of Britain’s major universities. Their portfolio is fully equipped to a high standard and provides student focused accommodation for around 15,000 students. 

Liberty Living have chosen CAFM Explorer, a Microsoft Gold partnered product, to manage their statutory maintenance and compliance obligations for all their student accommodation sites. “We are delighted to be using CAFM Explorer to help us manage our accommodation responsibly and reduce risks”.
Liberty Living have been using CAFM Explorer for over a year and took some good advice from the CAFM Explorer User Group. “We were advised that we should learn to walk before we can run” says Mike. “Initially we purchased a single licence with support and took the time to build our database and populate the data we required”.
The CAFM Explorer User Group is independently run by a committee of FM Guru’s who encourage networking and best practice as well as having input into the strategic development of CAFM Explorer with FMx.
“With the initial build complete, we are looking to take statutory maintenance calls from our 41 sites and have purchased additional licences, installation and training services to enable us to implement and manage this” adds Mike. “As well as training key users on CAFM Explorer we are also going to utilise the wide range of informative tip and tricks video’s. TTVs can be viewed online or downloaded and shared with all staff to provide a completely flexible approach to enhance our product knowledge. Longer term we are also looking introduce planned maintenance, stock control, project management, procurement and assets as well as introduce the ability for the sites to log their own calls via CAFM Net”
“This phased implementation is a prime example of how we recommend our users get started with CAFM Explorer” claims Tony Leppard, Managing Director, FMx. “It shows the breadth of functionality and scalability of our product”.
CAFM Explorer is a product of immense scalability which allows your data to grow in line with your own companies increased usage and requirement to develop its use of this total FM solution’s functionality.
“It is this flexibility that will enable us to develop our use of CAFM Explorer when we are ready” says Mike “and provides me with the peace of mind that CAFM Explorer will manage Liberty Living’s growing facilities needs”.
