Wake Forest University was founded in 1834 and has operated on its current campus since 1956. With a sprawling campus and a large number of historic buildings, facilities leaders needed a software solution that would allow for deep tracking and robust reporting regarding assets and facilities work.


By implementing Brightly’s Asset Essentials software solution, Wake Forest has been able to:

  • Better manage and track facility maintenance and work orders
  • Quickly access and share data to answer questions and inform decisions


North Carolina university with:

  • Approximately 9,000 students
  • More than 80 buildings on 340 acres
