5 ways your data can add value to your facilities management business

Home » Resources » 5 ways your data can add value to your facilities management business

The control and analysis of real-time data allows you to monitor and reveal both efficiencies and inefficiencies within the delivery of your services.

Being able to visually call up data in easy-to-understand charts and graphs, makes proactive decision making much easier, and potentially the difference between meeting contractual obligations and securing the next deal, or not.

And here’s 5 ways you could be working your data harder to help add value to client service delivery:

1

Proactive maintenance

Data generated from historical trends and performance allows you to predict maintenance and service delivery needs so you provide only the necessary amount of focus. You’ll continue to meet SLAs without wasting time (and money) on things that won’t add value to either you or your clients.

2

Better control

Being able to quickly call up any contracted service element; everything from toilet cleaning schedules to catering rotas and beyond; can show you when and where there are gaps in delivery. This data will make it much easier to deploy your resources more effectively, when and where they’re needed.

3

Task prioritisation

Workload data enables you to prioritise jobs and schedule tasks effectively to meet SLA timescales. If the data is showing you falling behind on service delivery, you can alert, and then assign, workers to high priority tasks. Over utilised in catering on one site but under in another, quickly reassign workers to cover the gap.

4

Rapid scheduling

Got a scheduling problem? Perhaps a service incident has been logged because a bulb has blown in a meeting room or a window has broken presenting a security risk. Real-time view of incidents, which can be accessed online on any device, means you can quickly move resources to deal with it, before there’s any negative impact.

5

Improved engagement

Sharing relevant real-time performance reporting of a contract as it is actioned provides an accurate assessment of service delivery. This gives your clients peace of mind that you’re meeting the standards required to keep, both legally and contractually. With transparency, comes trust, followed by satisfied clients.

With Servicetrac, you’ll have visibility of everything from the number of cleaning inspections performed, to how well you are performing against the agreed SLA, and from which you can quickly make fact based decisions to ensure you maintain or correct what you do to ensure the correct contract performance.

Servicetrac removes the need for paper based reporting and spreadsheets, instead providing data visibility in the form of easy to use online reports and dashboards. Everything you need to reduce costs, improve service delivery and speed up failure resolution.

    The biggest change is you now need the ability to bring technology in as a core element of service delivery. And if you’re a creative thinker with a penchant for taking things to the next level you might even end up defining the shape of FM technology to come. Here’s three ways that technology has changed FM as a career:
  • How to improve responsiveness and service delivery
    Understanding exactly what you’re delivering and how and when you’re delivering it sounds simple enough. Armed with this information, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t hit your contractual KPIs.
  • Turning data into profitable insight
    Every day we generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. For those unfamiliar with such mind boggling numerical terminology, this equates to 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 bytes. To give today’s data generation feats even greater context, 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last 2 years. And within that data there lies gold (or profit and risk management, to use more apt business terms).

    There is no doubting the benefit of insight and action that data can provide, particularly in filling the gap between what is happening on the ground, and the management information needed for effective service delivery.
