CenterStone from Trimble is a modular system designed to track an organization’s real estate portfolio needs such as space management, facilities management, lease administration and environmental sustainability. Space management is the key feature of the solution that offers CAD management, occupancy tracking, strategic planning, assets, stacking and blocking and chargeback abilities.
CenterStone features a built-in DWG engine that reads and writes to the native AutoCAD file without the need to have AutoCAD installed. The Move management module allows for drag-and-drop functionality to be used on a single or group move. It supports multi-criteria floor plan reporting and color by highlighting for visualizations that can be shared with others. Facilities Management teams are able to create and save different scenarios for planning.
The CenterStone solution was developed as a cloud-based SaaS solution. CenterStone is also offered as an on-premise solution for customers requiring such. It can be used by companies to manage large and enterprise-level spaces.

If you want something that is easy to use and helps your company save time and money, than look else where.
The sales team does a good job at getting people to make the purchase. It might not be what your looking for but they sell it to you.
It's not intuitive at all. Much of what we were promised was technically true but is not reality. If this was 1998 I might this looked good but it's 2018 and it's just clumsy and hard to use. Our main goal was to make things simpler for our service techs and our space planners. This has not saved any time for either. Right now only the Ops Management works. We had a third party company help with implementation so now Trimble is selective with what they help with. We now have to pay two companies for support. This makes our yearly cost more than we budgeted for.

I've used CAFM a Space Management programs in the past and this was an easy transition. The ease of the software and the advancement from years ago when I used CAFM was a great surprise. I used it in higher education for about 3 years and it helped to make campus spaces.

The product is very simple to use for moves, adds and changes. The platform is very user friendly and the company trimble providing training was also great.
No complaints this software does everything that I need it to at the moment.
Realize your own technical savviness before purchasing. Also think of what the particular needs of your company are and decide which program fits those needs best.
