  • EASE OF USE. This is likely to be the most important consideration. With more than 25 years of development, the Concept Evolution software is designed with the end user in mind. It adopts a Microsoft look and feel; ensures successful use; and provides return on your investment.
  • WEB BASED. Our software is future proof; built using the most up to date Microsoft .NET technology. Rollout and upgrades are fast; plus the software can be accessed anywhere through a web browser.
  • SCALABLE. The software can be scaled to suit any company that manages a single facility through to a global property portfolio; the software can grow with your business.
  • LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP. The solution is based on client configuration. As an 'Off the Shelf' solution and using industry standard databases; Concept Evolution offers an unmatched level of flexibility; client configuration capability; and integration capability. This, together with thorough documentation and a partnership approach to its rollout, ensures clients become self-sufficient and an upgrade path is kept; this means that significant savings in total cost of ownership is realised.
  • BEST VALUE FUNCTIONALITY. The integrated functionality offered in our software is unmatched. Concept Evolution includes as a core function the most widely used and advanced Planned Preventative Maintenance Scheduling tool with Graphical View on the market. FSI was the first to introduce this system to the market; while the current version benefits from more than two decades worth of end user input and constant updates. As this tool is vital to the daily work of thousands of users worldwide, we know it works.
