Lyndhurst, N.J.-based Drawbase Software has forged a partnership with Southfield, Mich.-based Phoenix Data Systems, Inc., the developer of AIMS computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software. Together, the companies can “provide clients with a complete solution for healthcare facilities management,” officials say in a statement.
Specifically, Drawbase provides visual space, infrastructure, and data center management in a single, converged environment while Phoenix Data Systems provides hospitals with CMMS capabilities. The combined offering will enable facility departments to attain advanced computer-aided facilities management-CMMS integration.

“Partnering with Drawbase will provide immense value to our AIMS users,” says Ben Mannisto, president and CEO of Phoenix Data Systems, Inc. “For the first time, users will be able to visually manage their buildings and assets from inside AIMS. I know a lot of AIMS users will be excited to use this functionality.”

Evan Kontos, president of Drawbase Software, also spoke out about the deal, commenting: “Phoenix Data Systems’ AIMS product provides Drawbase with an out-of-the-box, healthcare-focused solution for maintenance that has never before been seen in the industry. Healthcare CMMS users will be able to bring the systems up and become productive almost immediately. The days of system customization and implementation that took months, or even years, is over—and at a fraction of the price.”
