Nemetschek Allplan presents New Version of Allplan Allfa for Efficient Building Management

Munich, October 26, 2009 – With Allplan 2009 Allfa, Nemetschek Allplan today announced the new version of its software for facility management. In addition to modules for cleaning management, administration and workflow, Allplan Allfa sets new standards in interdisciplinary collaboration between planning partners: The new version supports the future format IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) and provides improved data exchange with all conventional CAD programs. It also permits the exchange of PDF documents and therefore simplifies clarification and release processes.

“Operating buildings is an interdisciplinary challenge that requires an interlinked approach from all those involved. Nemetschek Allplan systematically supports this with a new version of its facility management software Allfa. It therefore also makes a contribution to efficient building management”, says Peter Mehlstäubler, CEO and General Manager of Nemetschek Allplan GmbH.

Automated Business Processes

Greater efficiency in cleaning requirements is made possible thanks to the new module Allfa Clean Management. This enables users to classify areas with different cleaning types. They then transfer the data to MS Excel in order to comprehensively analyze cleaning contracts and costs. The results flow back into Allplan Allfa and form the basis for the required bills of quantity.

The module Allfa Process supports simple release processes right through to complex procedures. Operations are documented in a straightforward, traceable way with the help of task lists and status reports. The module is Internet-based and contains a comprehensive role and rights concept. It is therefore particularly well-suited to maintenance, service or the hotline. Service inquiries such as fault reports, for example, can be made available via a website.

The management of user rights and licenses is supported by the module Allfa Administration. It is also integrated in the new web interface of Allplan Allfa.

Smooth Collaboration

For the first time, Allplan 2009 Allfa supports the data exchange format IFC, which is increasingly gaining ground in facility management. The interface currently makes it possible to import alphanumeric information such as properties, buildings, rooms and equipment. This ensures that the facility manager receives comprehensive information.

Nemetschek Allplan is using PDF from Adobe in Allplan 2009 with the aim of bringing an extensive and lasting improvement to information exchange and software-aided communication during the design and construction process. This allows planning partners to work together on the basis of a standard format. Graphical and alphanumeric information can be merged into a single document: information on cleaning, use, room assignments or inventory numbers can be shown or hidden. Users can communicate easily and efficiently with their partners, regardless of location, software application and file format. This secures release processes and clarifications. The use of PDF shortens planning cycles while at the same time reducing costs, and therefore plays an important part in the timely completion of projects.

The option of archiving documents or plans in PDF/A format is also new. PDF/A is an ISO standard that ensures the readability of electronic documents for many years. It helps users meet the legally required archiving periods quickly, reliably and at low cost.

Optimized Interfaces

New functions in the module Allfa Graphics accelerate data comparison between the CAD and FM system. This includes, for example, the measurement of lengths and areas or the interactive display of object information when drawing an object. The positioning of properties, legend displays or plan header management have also been optimized.

Availability and Languages

Allplan 2009 Allfa will be available from the end of November 2009 in German, English and French.
