Todd will mentor facility management software provider
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 8, 2013) — Dr. Lee Todd, inventor, entrepreneur and former president of the University of Kentucky, has joined the advisory committee of Louisville-based software company FacilityONE. A provider of cloud-based facility management software, FacilityONE is working with the nation’s third largest faith-based health system for an enterprise-wide, multi-phase rollout of the FacilityONE Facility Information Solution (FIS).
“I have been involved with FacilityONE for the past year, and in that time I’ve yet to hear bad news from a customer,” Todd said. “I have quite a bit of experience in software – managing it, selling it, and keeping it supported out in the field. I know enough to say that if a company has over 40 million square feet of facilities documented worldwide, and is getting recurring purchases from existing customers, that’s a good company. I’m proud to work with a company that is creating opportunities for Kentuckians to impact the world.”
FacilityONE has pioneered the use of cloud technology and interactive floor plans in facility management software. The company’s implementation service utilizes a small, dynamic team to swiftly document any facility’s critical asset information. Earlier this year, the team successfully implemented the FIS in 19 regional hospitals and ancillaries in less than five months.
FacilityONE transforms a facility’s fragmented information into one organized, easily accessible solution for intelligent management. Providing comprehensive data gathering, documentation and assessment services, the cloud-based FIS ensures critical facility asset information is available anywhere, anytime.
“Dr. Todd’s extensive experience and background with software companies and as an entrepreneur are great assets to our advisory committee and the entire FacilityONE team,” said Dale Cain, founder and CEO of FacilityONE.
Todd developed a strong reputation as an innovator of cutting edge technology, founding and leading numerous successful technology companies prior to his tenure as president of UK, from July 2001 through June 2011.
Since July 2011, he has served as a professor of electrical engineering at UK. He focuses on programs regarding the improvement of K-12 science and mathematics instruction throughout the commonwealth of Kentucky and the nation, and is helping to develop course offerings in entrepreneurship and leadership.
Todd co-founded the Kentucky Science and Technology Council, serves on the Equitable Resources (EQT) Board of Directors and has served on the LGE/KU Board. On a national level, he chairs the Advisory Committee of the Education and Human Resources Directorate of the National Science Foundation, served as President of the Association of Public Land-Grant Universities, and served on the executive committee of the Business Higher Education Forum.
