Awards & Associations

About Compass AFM

We are a provider of multiple solutions for any size of organisation that requires an effective way to manage their plant / energy / property assets and maintenance operations. We are also an award winning innovative developer of CAFM / CMMS Software.

Our scope and knowledge allow us to address problems that no one else can. We are passionate about taking on the challenges that matter to our clients.

The Compass Story

Compass started up in 2009 as a CAFM software development company. However we realised that potential customers wanted more than just a "boxed" software supplier. They also needed a solution to solve specific problems and regarded the software as just part of the overall required solution.

Compass adapted to that need and today our solutions are the key tools for maintaining plant and facility assets to the high standards being demanded today. More importantly, the information generated by these solutions provides our customers with the ability to make better decisions, run operations more efficiently, and achieve the ultimate goal - improve their organisations financial performance.

Compass currently provides a broad spectrum of solutions to our customers in Ireland, UK and Middle East.

Our Philosophy

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him.
He is not an interruption in our work - he is the purpose of it.
We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to serve him.
- Mahatma Gandhi

Interaction with our customers and meeting or exceeding their expectations is our goal. We aim to significantly help improve the performance of our clients businesses. This is what they say about Compass.
"Our Facilities Team started using Regional Pro in 2011 to help us manage our facility in Ireland. We are happy with the product, and it does what Compass ST said it would. We got very good after-sales support, and we believe that we are getting better control of our costs and our maintenance activities as we add more of our facilities assets to the database. Shortly after Regional Pro was purchased it helped us to pass an ISO 14001 audit, so we are already benefitting from our decision to install it."

HS&E Manager - Apple Operations Europe, Ireland.

"I am writing to both endorse and recommend Compass as a provider of an invaluable Facilities Management system to my company. The service Compass FM provides is top quality - from initial request for info and proposal to the provision of the product and all necessary training.
This product has enabled us to efficiently plan Maintenance tasks as well as tracking of site equipment"

Facilities Engineer, BCD Engineering, Ireland

"We engaged Compass Software to provide our company with an effective job tracking and scheduling system so as to enable us to streamline our operations and reduce administration costs. The Compass Coordinator Package has succeeded in doing just that.
The attention Compass paid to our individual needs and budgetary constraints ensured we got the solution we were looking for at the right price and with a high standard of after sales support. "
