Getting Results with Archibus


Organizations around the world are subject to a vast array of local, regional, national, and international laws, regulations, and standards pertaining to their properties and facilities. Organizations might also have internal programs and policies that they need to manage. Tracking these requirements is a complex task given the large number of requirements, the critical need to complete these requirements on schedule, and the potentially large fines and penalties for noncompliance. Moreover, many of the items that you must keep in compliance are managed and maintained by outside providers who are specialized in this area and who you contract to do this work.

Using the Archibus Compliance application, you can organize your compliance information by regulation, program, and requirements, enabling you to:

Compliance Program Managers use the application to manage all aspects of their compliance programs, while Compliance Program Coordinators manage programs and requirements that are assigned to them.

If you are using the Archibus Projects application, the Compliance Project Manager can create compliance projects that also appear in the Projects application. From Projects, you can manage all aspects of the project to do top-level planning across multiple compliance programs.
