New SpaceRunner Web Application Enables Health Care Facility Managers to "Think Outside the Spreadsheet" for Visual Asset Management

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2015) -  ASHE Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition -- Xyicon, a provider of innovative health care and facility management software solutions, has harnessed its expertise in visualizing and managing a myriad of devices and equipment for high-performance health care facilities for the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution. Xyicon's SpaceRunner is a new web-based application that serves as a "visual spreadsheet" for the many different "Things" associated with any health care facility floor plan, location map or building image.

"Today's health care facility managers are faced with deploying and managing an incredible amount of equipment," said Xyicon, CEO and Founder Jason Chavez. "These professionals typically struggle to maintain multiple, detailed spreadsheets and conventional paper floor plans for today's high-performance health care facilities. To keep pace with the complexity of the modern era, a new generation of software tools is needed. SpaceRunner allows facility teams to map out and tag a 'Space' with smart icons representing equipment or assets placed on X and Y coordinates. These 'Xyicons' are dynamic data containers that enable any health care organization to harness the power of SpaceRunner and join the 'Internet of Things' revolution."

SpaceRunner equips health care facility managers to "think outside the spreadsheet" by displaying equipment, assets, and related data for any "Space." SpaceRunner incorporates powerful "Xyicons" -- smart, location-specific icons -- that make it easy for operation teams and third-party service providers to combine all the essential elements of project information into a comprehensive, user-friendly visual spreadsheet. Facility and project managers have complete and immediate access to details of all assets. Organized and precise asset information reduces project risks, downtime and costs while increasing the operational effectiveness of everyone who needs these details. With SpaceRunner's SaaS interface, health care facility managers now can:

  • Allow access to all facilities floor plans in one place, accessible from any connected device
  • Create, organize, and track service requests
  • Quickly find detailed information about any asset
  • Set up regularly recurring maintenance tasks
  • Keep entire workflow informed of the status of work requests
  • Be prepared for compliance inspections

SpaceRunner for Visual Asset Management in Health Care

Ideal for any health care facility in the IoT era, SpaceRunner automates planning and management tasks that conventionally have been performed with complex, tab-filled spreadsheets or shared manual documents. As a powerful web-based "visual spreadsheet," SpaceRunner enables the display of important data on floor plans. Using SpaceRunner, health care facilities teams and their service providers can not only map, view and share essential equipment data, but also track maintenance, reduce costs and deliver a measurably higher level of service across an entire, multi-site health care operation.

SpaceRunner is available now starting at $20 per month for three users with up to 500 Xyicons to visualize, manage and maintain any object or device. A free 14-day trial version is available at
