What do people think about RFAM?

AARFP

 We recently came on board with Marmak to make the Recreation Facility Asset Management software program available to all of our 1500 plus members. Our members now have a tool to assist them in their facility asset management roles. The initial interest in the program has been great and as more of our members become aware of the potential of this product we anticipate many more facilities and municipalities will be utilizing it. The beauty of the software is that it was developed with the input from recreation facility operators who know what their needs are to operate and maintain their multiple assets. A tool every facility operator needs in their tool box.

Ontario Trails Council

 At Ontario Trails we take trails seriously and that means managing trail conditions so that our members provide the best outdoor recreation environment for the best trail experience. The RFAM product is introducing a trail asset layer so the professional trail manager will provide the best of trail conditions. That's why Ontario Trails is pleased to be working in partnership with Marmak and the RFAM Product line.

ORFA

 The ORFA is proud to provide members with access to the RFAM solution and leverage its relationship with other provincial/territorial organizations who wish to provide similar asset management solutions for their members. The RFAM solution continues to expand to meet recreation asset management needs as a quality tool built by recreation practitioners for recreation practitioners.

Oliver Parks and Recreation

 We are a small department in a small community and facility management documentation is in need of a technological upgrade. I was interested in using RFAM as a cost-effective way to build a web-based inventory of all of our facilities that could be accessed by management, supervisors and staff to be more efficient in work orders, inspections, preventative maintenance and budgeting.

Recreation/Parks Staff

RFAM is designed specifically for parks and recreation staff. It provides a central location to store information for various capital assets as well as track the maintenance and condition of these assets. RFAM empowers staff at every level of the department and minimizes the risks associated to maintaining a capital asset.

Treasurers

RFAM helps cities save money. Routine inspections and completed work orders help recreation and parks staff catch deficiencies before they become catastrophes thereby saving cities money. Regular routine inspections can result in low-cost work orders as opposed to expensive capital projects. RFAM enables staff to better understand the annual costs associated to their facilities and offers a more realistic budget forecast. This informed understanding results in a proactive allocation of funds for preventative maintenance activities as opposed to costly reactive replacement projects.
X

CAO

RFAM provides CAOs with the tools to better understand the performance of their recreation and parks department. They have the ability to view the progress of work within the department. In addition, from a liability perspective you have proof in RFAM that regular maintenance and inspections have been completed. This information may provide protection from costly and lengthy lawsuits.

Community

Parks and Recreation’s goal is to provide safe areas for the public. Regular maintenance and inspections on facilities and parks offers a safe environment for individuals to spend their leisure time. The community should not need to worry about potential risks they may encounter at a facility or park. Regular maintenance of capital assets leads to a strong and positive relationship with the public increasing the level of comfort and safety they feel at their local recreation areas.

Legal Protection

The maintenance of facilities and open spaces is a crucial aspect of municipal activity. 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 incidents. Every year poor maintenance of recreation facilities and open spaces results in numerous injuries, some even leading to death.
X

Centralization of Data

RFAM allows for increased communication and organization within a department. This is accomplished by having one central system for asset inventory, inspection results, and associated work orders. One system that all employees can easily access replaces the tedious task of continually updating spreadsheets or logbooks. Such ease of use opens up the lines of communication and accountability within the organization.
X

Advocacy

When municipalities store their data in RFAM, local recreation associations are better able to support requests for funding from government agencies. These associations are able to view the aggregate member data to petition for funding. Opting to maintain data with spreadsheets or other various programs inhibits the local association from providing help and support.
X

Government Regulations

Within the next two years it will be mandatory for all municipalities to include facilities in their asset management plans. RFAM helps municipalities structure their data in a way that conforms to government regulations. Opting to use RFAM is a proactive approach that will put you ahead of the curve.
