How We Work
Investment Return is What Sets Us Apart
If we can't make a difference to your bottom line, we don't engage.
Companies with large or multi-site facilities, who manage these via individuals at each location can achieve significant cost savings utilizing a service such as this. Why?
Managing Your Facility is Our Top Priority
The individuals at the your building(s) that are responsible for facilities management must also do their daily job. This means facilities management takes a back seat. For us, managing the day to day concerns of your facilities is our top priority.
Training & Experience
The person doing this job often lacks the training and experience necessary to do anything other than handle issues on a reactive, break/fix basis - which is always more costly. We have the experience and the training to identify issues before they happen, saving you and your customers time, money and headaches.
Consolidation Yields Cost Savings
Second, without central management of the entire facilities operations, companies are unable to realize the economies and cost benefits of central oversight, consolidation of vendor contracts, price leverage and central budgeting and planning.
Spot Developing Issues - Fix It Before It Breaks
Without access to a central facilities management computer system, they lack the visibility into daily work order requests. When you can monitor work requests as they happen, you can spot developing problems and address them before the equipment completely breaks down, saving $1,000s of dollars in the process.
For example, repeat problems with lack of heat at a location can signal a problem as simple as not changing the unit filters. This can cause the heating coil/core to overheat and could cause the the furnace to completely break down, resulting in an expenditure of $1,000s of dollars to fix. An experienced facilities manager, well versed in the operation of your equipment and systems will be able to spot these issues and prevent these failures, saving money, lost productivity and time.
Maintain Your Equipment - Improve it's Life
Lacking experience and a Work Order Tracking system, it's difficult, if not impossible, to plan and budget for maintenance and replacements. Having total visibility into what is going on at your facilities allows you to effectively estimate the life of high cost items like roads, roofs, heating and cooling systems, etc. so you can plan for their repair and eventual replacement. You won't get caught off guard by a major malfunction that results in $1,000s of unplanned expense.
