Live monitoring and graphical display of evaluations

Visualizations in real time

With the DASHBOARD you monitor processes and parameters in real time during operation. As a basis for important decisions, the DASHBOARD visualizes all relevant CAFM key figures. Parameters, limit values and warning ranges can be adjusted to your needs. With this tool, you will never miss a critical development. These are immediately identified, displayed and can be directly reported in a variety of ways.

The DASHBOARD information displayed can be controlled on a user-specific basis. A user may only see the information that is released for his role
The DASHBOARD is displayed in a separate window. This allows you to work ergonomically and freely design the interface according to your own preferences

Through the escalation management ESCALATION, limit values can be provided with an alarm. If a critical value is exceeded, predefined persons are immediately notified by e-mail.


Support of numerous interfaces

Do you want to work with CAD drawings in the CAFM software or connect your existing SAP® system? With wave Facilities you don’t have to maintain processes twice. The CAFM software supports a wide range of interfaces that greatly simplify your everyday workflows. Simply import your CAD drawing, your ERP data base or connect a measuring device.

CAD interface to AutoCAD®

Bidirectional DWG interface

With the CAFM software wave Facilities, data and drawings are merged in one system. AutoCAD®, DWG or DGN drawing data can be imported unidirectionally. After the initial import, an optional bidirectional DWG interface is available. Room size changes in CAD are directly synchronized with the CAFM database. Historical data is also evaluated. The bidirectional coupling also enables detailed relocation planning based on AutoCAD®. Different variants can be run through and organized for relocations.
