Planet Strikes the South Coast | 12 July 2007

FDS Continues To Build on its existing 10% market share.

Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has selected Planet, a facilities and estate management software suite from FDS to deliver a fully integrated and streamlined approach to its facilities management.

Planet provides a single, integrated suite of feature rich modules that are tightly linked to deliver best-of-breed functionality across the full spectrum of FM services from property management and maintenance to consolidated help desks and state-of-the-art mobile solutions.

Flexible, responsive and easy to use, Planet can be easily tailored to suit specific business processes and working practices, and offers standard interfaces to link into financial and procurement systems. The Planet software also provides Bournemouth and Christchurch a detailed, end-to-end view of facilities management processes in real time, and the flexibility to adapt to organisational and operational changes of the future.

Martin Rogers, Estates Manager at Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, commented: “We identified the need for a new system and chose Planet because it was the most effective and flexible method of storing asset records and breakdown maintenance logs. We also saw the potential to expand the system and portray a one location structured FM department.”

Martin continued, “We hope to expand our use of the system by enabling intranet access so that people can register their own maintenance requests at their own stations automatically. We also hope to expand the use of the system to include access via PDAs.”

At Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Planet was implemented in May this year to keep track of facilities breakdowns, and was further enhanced in June by the ‘go-live’ of the Planet planned maintenance module.
