7 Ways AI Advances Facility ManagementSeptember 13, 2023
Effective facility maintenance and management are crucial for seamless operations in today’s fast-paced business environment.
Many commercial facilities and institutions are turning to facility maintenance service providers to handle their day-to-day operations, allowing internal teams to focus on core business activities and customer support.
However, selecting the right service provider can be daunting, given the many options available. While cost, experience, industry specialization, and reputation are essential, five additional key factors can take your facility’s performance, operations, and appeal to the next level.
1. Single-Source Solution:
Regarding facility maintenance, having a reliable partner that offers a comprehensive, single-source solution is invaluable. Consolidating all your operational requirements, including maintenance, operations, janitorial cleaning services, supply management, and inventory control, under one roof brings increased flexibility and scalability. This model enables quick adjustments to meet evolving facility needs while streamlining collaboration with a single point of contact, reducing administrative burdens.
2. Compliance and Certifications:
Choosing a service provider that adheres to stringent compliance regulations is vital. Demonstrating compliance with industry standards reflects the provider’s commitment to maintaining quality, safety protocols, environmental regulations, and sustainability initiatives. Opting for a provider with certifications such as:
- CIMS with Honors
- CIMS-GB with honors (Green Building)
- SDVOSB (Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business)
- NMSDC (National Minority Supplier Development Council)
- CVMSDC (Carolinas-Virginia Supplier Development Council)
3. Technology & Data-Driven Approach:
Integrating technology and data-driven systems into facility operations brings numerous advantages. By leveraging technology, you gain transparency, visibility, and predictability, making operations more efficient and manageable. At US&S, we utilize CleanTelligent, an advanced janitorial management software, to provide real-time insights into facility cleanliness and maintenance. This customized setup, regular inspections, and detailed reporting ensure the highest cleanliness standards and client satisfaction.
4. Employee Training and Management:
The training and development of service employees are paramount to delivering exceptional service experiences. Partnering with a provider that invests in comprehensive training programs and fosters continuous development ensures that their teams possess the necessary skills and motivation to serve your specific needs. US&S prioritizes employee management, leading to better performance, consistency, and long-term success for your facility.
5. Relationship and Customer Care:
Strong communication and a client-centric approach are crucial for successful collaboration.
