Leading operational readiness firm partners with Microsoft Gold Partner to create a collaborative ORAT software solution

Axis facility activation software

Seattle, WA: September 17, 2021 – Axis ORAT, the world’s premier Operational Readiness, Activation & Transition (ORAT) firm, is pleased to announce it has selected Canviz, a Seattle-based Microsoft Gold Partner, to develop a fully custom operational readiness software. This revolutionary facility activation software will enable project owners, developers, stakeholders, and tenants to minimize risk, increase efficiency, and promote collaboration across their construction projects. 

Axis’s operational readiness software is designed to manage all functional areas of facility activation, including trial planning and execution, task tracking, risk management, procedure and contingency plan development, training, and readiness reporting. By partnering with Canviz, Axis’s software will be developed utilizing popular technologies that its customers are already using, including Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, powerBi, Excel, and Word. Utilizing these familiar platforms, users will be able to implement the ORAT process quickly, without learning any complicated or additional programs. 

Canviz has been a trusted Microsoft Gold Partner since 2008. The company’s use of open-source technologies allows it to deliver cost effective and reliable solutions that improve productivity, reduce costs, and help drive new sales opportunities. Recent work with Everbridge, the City of Seattle, and Wave Broadband has successfully demonstrated Canviz’s ability to design, architect, develop, and deploy streamlined software solutions. 

“Our partnership with Canviz will ensure our software exceeds our customers’ expectations,” said Kyle Elliott, Chief Executive Officer for Axis ORAT. “Canviz’s previous experience in developing complex software for large-scale industries will allow us to translate our decades of operational readiness experience into a first-class software solution that will be easily adopted by all of our customers.”  

Axis and Canviz recently completed an extensive discovery and architecture planning effort that will ensure processes and core software functional areas will be developed efficiently, allowing for future scale, functionality, and easy customer on-boarding. The collaborative process has allowed the Axis team to create unique ORAT processes and KPIs for each operational readiness area, including setting a roadmap for implementation. 

“We’re excited to collaborate with Axis to create a never-before-seen operational readiness software,” said Tim McDaniel, Managing Partner. “The team at Axis has years of on-the-ground experience opening massively complex facilities, and we can’t wait to distill their knowledge into straightforward project processes that help everyone, everywhere, work efficiently toward opening day.”  

The Axis ORAT software pilot edition is available now, and has already garnered international interest from governmental agencies, airports, and private firms. For more information, or to schedule a demo, visit
