FM Needs Support Too!

FM is always under pressure to provide a seamless, largely unseen and cost effective service to the core business. So who supports the supporters?

Most commonly, FM's support services and infrastructure are provided by the parent organisation if the service is in-house or is self procured and sometimes internally provided for service delivery companies.  Regardless of your position, how do you know you're getting the best deal?  Who is looking after your interests?  After all, you are busy delivering the service.  It's easy to fall into the trap of doing what you do because 'that's the way we do it'.  When was the last time you challenged your ways of working and organisational beliefs?  

Maybe you are just at the stage where you feel you can 'play with the big boys' but struggle with the cost of large corporate infrastructure purchases.

Whether you are a start-up, single service FM delivery company or an established player in TFM we can help you to get more from your business.  

Are you looking for a Workforce Management/CAFM system to suit your budget and delivery strategy or have an existing system and want to get more out of it? 

Are you considering or already holding BIM data that you want to use to support your FM operations?  

Do you want to bring your IT infrastructure up to date?  

Do you need to compete in the mobile enabled market?
