As a facilities manager (FM), you know that every day brings a new set of challenges, all which demand a variety of innovative solutions. Whether it’s keeping assets maintained, balancing budgets and expectations, coordinating teams, or managing time, FMs have a lot on their plates. However, when working with a facilities management provider, you have the opportunity to streamline operations and communications with efficient, cost-cutting solutions that make your job easier. Here are three ways a facilities management provider can improve your organization.
Reduce Operational Burdens and Increase Efficiency
FM providers are flexible and have the resources to adapt their services to an organization’s specific needs. With experienced technicians on standby, FM providers can easily scale their services to manage projects with reduced response and resolution time. For example, an FM provider can help organizations standardize processes for how repair orders are placed, how issues are prioritized, and how invoices are managed. Not only does this increase efficiency, it helps alleviate some of the operational burden on the FM, allowing them to focus on strategic initiatives that benefit the organization in the long run.
Increase the Quality of Work with Access to Highly-Skilled Technicians
FM providers have a vast selection of vetted technicians who are experts in their fields. Working with an FM partner means you also have access to highly skilled technicians.
Whether you need Soft FM like cleaning, landscaping, and waste management services or Hard FM like HVAC, plumbing or electrical services, on-demand access to a FM provider with a vast roster of skilled technicians ensures you have the perfect solution for the job every time. With access to highly-skilled technicians, FM providers are able to leverage their technicians to find the perfect fit and guarantee the quality of work. That level of service allows you to easily navigate complex projects with confidence knowing you have trusted communication, expertise, and results.
Consolidating operations and processes can help your organization lower your facilities management costs. Working with an FM provider that has experience in your industry means your needs are taken care of efficiently and to your satisfaction. This saves you time and money looking for the right solution.
You can also find additional savings with a self-performing FM provider because they cut out the middle-man. Technicians within a self-performing system work for the FM company so there isn’t a markup on the price as there would be when aggregators hire from their network of contractors.
In addition, FM providers have significant experience with all types of systems and processes. They can perform an audit to identify risks and provide preventative maintenance that avoids costly fixes and replacements. FM providers have experience with all types of organizations. They examine your organization through operational audits and conditions assessments to provide you with a custom solution that identifies cost-saving opportunities in your systems and processes.
