What is RFAM?
In 2015, the Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA), Ontario Recreation Facilities Association (ORFA) and Marmak partnered in developing an inventory repository for recreation assets. RFAM has become an asset management solution of choice by recreation associations across Canada to help their members manage facilities and open spaces.
RFAM is a user-friendly web based software application, designed specifically for facilities and parks staff. This system helps staff capture inventory, request maintenance, create work orders, run an electronic warehouse, and track condition and efficiency of assets.
Public and private owners, regardless of their size, need to inspect their facilities and open spaces throughout the year to ensure these assets pose no safety risks to their community. Continuous wear and tear in combination with normal depreciation makes it essential that each organization be able to prove regular inspection and maintenance procedures to ensure protection from legal claims.
RFAM replaces the tedious task of continually updating spreadsheets or logbooks and eliminates the guesswork, thereby empowering staff to work more efficiently while still maintaining detailed records.
