From space management to maintenance helpdesks, Micad can be deployed quickly, is easy to use and requires no onsite installation. The software can help clients achieve their estate and facility management goals. Kenneth outlines the firm’s aims and how it works to achieve these. “Here at Micad our mission is to be the leading property management and compliance software supplier in the country through delivering robust functionally rich software and an excellent customer service ethic. We are well on the way, as our software is already used in over 100 NHS Trust 16 Universities and range of government and commercial organisations, but we are not going to rest on our laurels; we are always exploring new ways to innovate and adapt in order to better support our clients. “As part of this, Micad have always been an early adopter of new technol- ogies having moved to providing a web based hosted model over 10 years ago. We continue to research and deliver products that make use of the latest mobile devices browsers and encompass mobile solutions. We see great potential in the development of the IOT for maintenance and estates functions linked to traditional CAD drawings and Building Information Models (BIM).” Overall the future looks bright for the firm as it seeks to capitalise and build upon its current success through various updates to its software, as Kenneth outlines in his concluding comments. “Looking ahead, the advent of BIM and 3D modelling is attractive; however, there is still a need for accurate verified data delivering a single source of the truth in whatever way it is presented. This means for many 2D drawings and reliable CAFM software will remain on a day to day basis. “As such we aim to meet this need, and in order to achieve this Micad have recently spent the last 12 months engaged in a rewrite of their Internet Property Register (IPR). The new Micad4 product is already causing a stir in the industry and initial responses have been very positive, and will provide a number of exciting developments for our users.” Best Property Management Software Provider - UK Micad is a software firm that helps property professionals deliver their estate and property strategies.
