Good afternoon all. The Archdiocese of Chicago currently uses a database system called Tririga which houses our real property inventory. We are in need of a database system that will not only house our real property, but will be able to manage our leases and property management and construction needs. We are currently in the process of determining whether or not to continue with Tririga or go with another alternative. I am curious to find out what other Dioceses use.
We use Facility Tree. They have a great database that is customizable and they are located in the Chicago area. Plus, there were at least two other database vendors exhibiting at our conference this year.
Fresno has created many of its own database tracking protocols over the past 12 years, but after much research, we are likely moving to Facility Tree. It seems their various interrelated modules available for tracking Construction, Facilities management activities/tasks, Real Estate Data, Leases, and Risk management events and Appraisals will provide for all our concerns and more.
In the Diocese of Memphis, we use Facility Tree to track our work orders and related costs. We use this program to track our assets and for capital projects. We have found the people there to be easy to work with.
