2014 has seen the rise of Facility Management companies throughout Australia. This has followed the shift in global thinking of major organisations from managing their own services, to outsourcing all their Facility Management. In fact the United States has doubled its Facility Management outsourcing over the last 7 years to over $30 billion. In Australia, Facility Management companies are increasingly being called on by Building Managers to manage their outsourced services due to increased pressures on the business to make money, and at the same time reduce their outgoings.
Facility Management companies take the pressure off organisations by scheduling, monitoring and completing all maintenance themselves, ensuring that the organisation instead focuses on generating income for their core business and not wasting valuable time on non core functions.
The major Facility Management companies will work internally with organisations to perform a comprehensive audit to analyse costs and value for services and supplies. A report is provided to communicate the findings, potential savings, and proposed schedules for preventative maintenance.
Facility Management companies are now also seen as another source of capital for organisations looking to improve their use of technology. Impressive IT platforms have been developed to audit, control and supply scheduled services. These IT platforms allow the organisation to provide their employees with software to request maintenance, control services, and monitor all Facility Management demands from their computer, smart phone, or tablet. In many cases this software is provided by the Facility Management Company free of charge.
Facility Management companies can save organisations 15% annually on maintenance costs. This is why Facility Services companies have grown exponentially in the USA in the last 7 years and why they same trend is being followed in Australia.
