Custom software development and support
Projex, an in-house-developed software package, provides a time-efficient and cost-saving solution for managing campus construction projects. Projex is used by all UM System campuses.
IBM Maximo, enterprise asset management (EAM) software, is used throughout CF as a tool for work management, cost tracking, and customer billing. Systems Development serves as a primary resource in the implementation of Maximo. The CF Customer Service Center relies upon Maximo to efficiently respond to the needs of faculty, staff, and students. Preventive maintenance programs facilitated by Maximo extend the service life of necessary equipment and help reduce MU's operational expenses.
