All of Your Infrastructure Needs
Redundancy and high availability ensure BluBØX service is always ON, critical in the event of a failure. The Cloud and the structure of the databases allow it to be fully scalable to meet requirements from small to medium-sized businesses up to the largest multi-facility enterprises. BluBØX products are on a subscription-based license model- on-demand, pay-as-you-go, pay-for-what-you-use- resulting in a streamlined annual budget process. Access to the system is performed without downloading any mobile apps or local client software. Automatic software upgrades eliminate the need to maintain or regularly update the software.
Unlimited Users, Licenses and Devices
BluSKY’s platform allows use on any device, anywhere, anytime with any browser, eliminating license key hassles and downloading apps. The number of simultaneous users or the number of database records is limitless. Dozens of optional feature licenses enable users to instantly activate or deactivate system features on an as-needed basis. Monthly billings are based on the prior month’s usage of selected features, so users only pay for the system capabilities they need.
One Common Database
BluSKY’s Cloud architecture creates a single unified database across all applications, thus facilities, occupancies, people, and events are managed with ease. A single, unified database also provides clean, accurate data. A common universal time clock ensures timeline accuracy across all events and records in all applications. Administration and training are more efficient with an end-to-end security solution.
One Simple Web Interface. On any Device.
Role and Policy-based People Management
Roles and policies are defined once and upfront using predefined roles and custom role creation. Single-click and person-based assignment of permissions, access rights, and badge templates minimize day-to-day administration. Role assignments for imported personnel records are automated for consistent and uniform results every time.
Out-of-the-BØX Email and text (SMS) service need no integration setup or maintenance. Built-in data fields provide relevant information for inclusion in messages. Distribution lists simplify recipient selection. The BluBØX rules engine and automation enable conditional notification delivery based on your communications plan, including messages to other systems and to central stations. Notifications are naturally integrated into the way you work.
Rules and Intelligence Engine
The built-in rules and intelligence engine ties it all together by providing analytics, automation, “Smart Building” integration and situational awareness. Users will significantly reduce recurring operational costs while providing a secure, convenient environment for employees, vendors, and guests. Rules and policies are defined in plain language and without the need for formulas. Rules-based automation helps enforce policies.
Common Reporting and Analytics Engine
BluSKY provides 50 plus predefined reports that are available in both PDF and Excel format. Users run user-defined and saved reports, produce tabular and graphical data reports, use interactive reporting, view dashlets and interactive dashboards, automate report subscriptions, and use one synchronized close with proper time zone reporting.
Health and Status Monitoring
Health and Status Monitoring continuously monitors hardware, software, and communications to ensure all seamless performance of system functionality. The proper group is notified automatically of any issues or problems. BluSKY proactively looks for potential trouble spots with easy to understand system health dashlets and dashboards.
BluBØX Knowledge Base
The BluBØX Knowledge Base is available with a single click from anywhere in any BluSKY application. In addition to providing instant help for any part of the BluSKY platform, the Knowledge Base contains guidance and articles on how to best utilize the features of all BluBØX products.
