A Michigan Financial Institution Reaps Hefty Annual Savings by Outsourcing Facilities Management
Situation: One Michigan financial institution was managing each of their three (3) branch facilities separately, delegating this responsibility to the individual Branch Manager or to an administrative employee. Each branch used their own contractors, their own suppliers and managed this chore on a break/fix, need to have basis. With the workload the managers had to deal with, there was no time for monthly analysis of work orders, cost oversight or budgeting and planning.
After reviewing the numbers, the CEO asked Tom Cook of Team Facilities Inc. to review the numbers and see if there were areas where they could reduce the costs of managing their properties.
Team Facilities completed a thorough COST ASSESSMENT and discovered that there were, in fact, many opportunities to save money for the company. So much so that the CEO decided they could outsource the entire facilities management function to Team Facilities and still save money. This would free up the branch managers to focus on their core job of serving members.
Results: In July of 2006, the bank retained Team Facilities to manage all building equipment, janitorial, electrical, utilities, roads and grounds. The branches are now able to concentrate on their core business. They have now grown to seven (7) branch offices and they continue to use Team Facilities to manage all their office sites.
Each year Team Facilities delivers significant cost savings. In 2009, Team Facilities is saving them 25% over the budgeted amount for repair and maintenance and 50% on budgeted security expenses.
This is the power that Team Facilities can deliver to the bottom line of your organization.

A Healthcare Retailer Benefits from Outsourced Facilities Management
Situation: With locations spread out all across Southeastern Michigan, this Team Facilities client had its hands full managing their store facilities, which were handled separately by each store manager.
The managers, who were busy serving customers and conducting eye exams, were struggling to keep everything in good working order. Frustrated, the client turned to Team Facilities for help.
Results: To start, TFI conducted a review of all expenditures, contracts and contractors for every maintenance function including janitorial, lawn, snow, grounds maintenance, supplies, heating, cooling, security systems, etc. Team Facilities identified the areas that could be improved and re-negotiated key vendor contracts leveraging the size of the operation and their relationship with key suppliers. They assigned a dedicated Facilities Account Manager to this account to provide 24 x 7 oversight of all work orders, contractors, job follow up and client satisfaction.
Whenever so much as a light bulb goes out, the store calls the TFI dispatch center and the problem is quickly taken care of. The client is delighted with the service and cost savings they are able to attain working with Team Facilities. In fact one store manager actually refers to TFI as "the dream team - we dream it and you do it!"
