Why Data Interoperability?

Why? It’s simple.

Owners often fail to consider the significant amounts of usable digital asset data that is created, used, paid for and then discarded when the project is handed over from the construction and design team.

In fact, some of the biggest hidden costs incurred by owners during the operation and maintenance of their facilities comes from the time and effort to acquire, store, and use this very same data!

These costs are incurred when, after their capital project is complete, those very same owners then pay to create a whole new set of identical digital asset data needed to implement asset management, work order and other key software systems relied upon to run their new facility. Therefore, they pay again for the very same data already created and left behind during the construction and design process.

Arora’s innovative Data Interoperability process prevents Owner’s from paying twice.

Arora’s Enterprise Solutions Group works closely with project owners to establish data standards and templates at the outset of their capital projects to ensure they receive the facility, system, and asset-related data needed to seed their Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system and lay the foundation for predictive maintenance and Digital Twin, all while complying with local, state or federal regulations. We also work with design and construction teams to ensure these standards are upheld and delivered when the project is complete.

The result is an owner’s dream: a complete, accurate, and structured set of Location and Asset data, plugged into real-time conditions and performance monitoring representing the facility, supported with a navigable 3D model, to­­ manage the operation and maintenance of the facility.

Save Time and Money with Data Interoperability Services.

Our team helps bridge the gap between the capital project acquisition process and facilities management to ensure our client’s facilities are ready to go on day one with all the data needed to run a world-class operation – all while saving millions of dollars over the life of the project and the facility.

Kansas City International Airport (MCI) reduced their implementation costs by approximately 50% with digital delivery compared to a traditional asset management implementation.

What Our Clients are Saying

“At MCI we applied an innovative approach to implementing asset management at the very beginning of the new terminal project…we wanted to better manage our assets [with an asset management tool]. The EDI Maximo eSAM system with EDI/Arora ATLAS® mobile is providing MCI with significant ROI and will continue in the future.”

— Ian Redhead, Deputy Directory Operations and Maintenance KC Aviation Department
Kansas City International Airport

“The EDI eSAM EAM system allows SLC to collect and manage data that helps us track inventory and maintenance records more accurately. EDI worked with our team and got the Maximo system up and running with work orders in less than 90 days! Your mobile solution makes work orders and inspections easier and more accurate.”
