CWorks Systems is pushing facility management mobility by giving new one-year Web-based CareWorks computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) subscribers a free, new WiFi-ready Lenovo S10 Netbook PC, which is to be given on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. According to CWorks, CareWorks is an economical and efficient facility management software-as-a-service (SaaS) option for facility managers and companies that seek a completely hosted and managed solution. Mobile CareWorks is even more well-suited for facilities that maintain multiple sites without sufficient IT budget and personnel. CareWorks CMMS helps companies automate their facility management functions and maintain critical equipment without extra IT personnel or support. Delivering enterprise-proven functionality with a monthly fee, according to the company, the service additionally provides reports and executive spreadsheets, and the storage of all CMMS/enterprise asset management analysis information in a single centralized database. CWorks CEO Abdul Rani Achmed believes that offering a free computer to new Web-based CMMS subscribers meets two objectives: "First, we wanted to develop a facility management tool that allows facility managers to concentrate on facility management, not IT. CareWorks accomplishes this goal by providing a Web-based facility maintenance solution with full customer support, thus freeing up facility managers' time and eliminating the need to hire any IT staff. "Secondly, we wanted to help managers go mobile. What better way to assist facility managers in achieving mobility than by giving them a laptop PC to operate their facilities."
