Maintaining our facilities management operation
Reviewed on August 25, 2013 by Sergio Costanzo, Facilities Manager at Richard O'Brien and Associates
Comments: Loc8 has provided us with a solution to maintain our facilities management operation. We needed an effective simple solution to manage contractors and assets, which resulted with what we were looking for.
The system will provide a management service to identify, schedule, manage and collect all documentation. This will provide assurance that out buildings are meeting with current regulation. This service operates on line, and manages the recommendation and approval of invoices.
We have been happy with the service and their development and support team and would recommend their service.
Loc8 use in commercial property management
Reviewed on December 07, 2011 by Loren Brown, Sysadmin Administrator at Richard O'Brien and Associates Pty Ltd
Pros: 1. There are a wide range of options in relation to areas to input information
2. Reports can be generated for any and all information within the programme
3. The programme can be tailored to meet any requirements
4. Customised maintenance schedules are available
5. Self generated work orders for scheduled and preventative maintenance
6. The entire programme is user friendly
Cons: 1. A few glitches in relation to server size and availability and some connections issues when editing large amounts of information, although this is probably due to our network connection speeds to the hosted Loc8 system.
2. Unable to custom design PDF output of work orders as of yet.
Overall: Overall I would definitely recommend this programme for use in the commercial real estate sector in relation to facilities and asset management. Loc8 successfully lends itself to a wide range of industries.

Pros: Loc8 is an extremely easy to use Asset Management system. Previously we managed everything in spreadsheets, which made it extremely hard to run reports. We can now export data, bulk import and run queries on users with a few clicks. Support is also extremely helpful and get problems fixed with great speed
Cons: Can be a little tricky with importing data
Overall: Definitely recommend this to anyone looking at recording all of their assets in the one place. Whether that be physical hardware, software or phone numbers

Reviewed on August 05, 2010 by Daniel Broadbent, Managing Director at Broad Services P/L
Pros: Easy to use
Real time updates
Cons: Can't think of any
Overall: Broad Services Pty Ltd manages a variety of commercial property maintenance service contracts that vary in size and nature. Due to the large amount of information for sometimes very urgent tasks we were searching for an online job booking system that would be fast, flexible and reliable to provide real time service to all our clients. Loc8 Software as a Service has provided this for us. Loc8 has been invaluable in helping us continually achieve top service results .
We have recently increased our service area to include outer regional areas of Victoria which would not have been possible without the use of Loc8 and its ability to convert work orders to SMS.
The Loc8 support team have always been very helpful with their training and we would have no hesitation in recommending the use of their Software as a Service.
