Envisage Technologies, a Bloomington, Indiana-based software technology firm, announced today the release of new features, critical to the measurement of readiness, custom data collection, and customizable Kirkpatrick Level 1 surveys.
Acadis Forecasting is designed to help managers track progress towards organizational readiness goals and more effectively utilize limited resources by targeting specific readiness gaps. In enables critical response managers to define numbers and types of qualified personnel needed to achieve a specific goal and track these resources against defined targets to better align the organization’s training plans to specific NIMS plans or Preparedness Goals.
Acadis WebForms simplifies the process of data collection. With a highly flexible “drag and drop” interface, Acadis WebForms allows users to create custom electronic forms to replace traditional paper forms and import data directly into the Acadis database. Acadis WebForms links to existing fields and customer definitions in the Acadis database and includes the ability to add headers, spacers, instructions, custom text, check boxes, and online help for individual forms. Once completed, forms can be easily published to the Acadis Portal enabling data collection from partner agencies, departments or individuals. Reducing the volume of paper, storage, and postage of required to process paper forms will create significant costs savings and help ensure sensitive information is not stored in third party tools.
Rentable Property – For Academies and organizations that rent facilities, equipment or resources, this new module will streamline the rental and scheduling of these assets. This initial version enables Acadis users to define individual assets to be made available for rent, upload photos of the asset and allow individuals to browse available resources and request them. In release 4.7.3, Envisage is planning to integrate the scheduling of resources directly with the Acadis Scheduling module to ensure facilities and assets that have been rented for a specific timeframe will be flagged as unavailable for scheduling. Finally, Academies that provide facilities and resources for rent have access to the online features they need to maximize their revenue potential.
