Powerful, intuitive, comprehensive Facility Management software that anyone can use... Without the big price tag.

Evolve FM, for Higher Education facilites management.


Evolve FM ficm legendTo meet the specific needs of the higher education environment, Evolve FM Facility Management Software (CAFM), in accordance with the Postsecondary Education Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual (FICM) guidelines, includes features for Space Classification and Condition Assessment.

Import your current facilities data into Evolve FM and then be able to produce reports that meet the FICM reporting requirements and guidelines in seconds instead of days, weeks, or even months.

Without the need for CAD operators, Evolve FM allows facilities professionals to quickly and easily generate robust graphical reports of their physical space inventory. No more flopping and twitching when asked to produce color-coded floor plan reports for space classification & departmental usage.

Evolve FM enables higher education institutions and other places of learning to optimize and appreciate their space resources in terms of availability, type, location, and efficient use.

Supporting your FICM Goals

Easily manage your physical space inventory according to Postsecondary Education Facilities Inventory and Classification (FICM) guidelines. Track primary & secondary uses, functional use categories, discipline/condition codes and more.

Categorizing space in accordance with FICM reporting guidelines can be tedious to maintain, especially on CAD drawings that are not connected to a database. And then running those physical space inventory reports and going through facility plans to make sure they have been color-coded properly can take weeks, if not months to get ready. Evolve FM includes the ability to categorize your space to meet FICM reporting requirements and guidelines and produces color-coded facility plans in seconds.

Easily Track & Report

  • Space Use Classifications
  • Functional Categories
  • Academic Discipline Codes

Evolve FM, Cost Effective Facilities Management

The job of a Facilities Manager has become much more demanding; there is more information to manage in the form of data and drawings, and a much greater need for faster, more accurate reporting capabilities. Evolve FM responds to the demand and is an easy-to-use, affordable tool for facility professionals. Some CAFM/CMMS systems can be very expensive technologies reserved for very large organizations that have the resources to invest in them.
