Tech advancement is improving a great many sectors and facilities management is now firmly on the list. Computer Aided FM (CAFM) is not only driving efficiencies and safety – it is streamlining costs and providing a customised solution.
With only 9% of Facilities Managers utilising proper CAFM is it right for your business? Could it reduce your running costs or be a blow to your budget?
The Key Benefits of CAFM
Facilities Managers are often expected to foresee and prevent problems. Work can be pressured and impact the business as a whole; accurate day-to-day knowledge is vital for problem prevention. Without supporting software, a Facilities Manager is operating with one hand tied behind their back. There’s no historical data to steer future decision-making.
Health and safety, risk assessment and enforcement, compliance, safety measures, procedures and training are at the forefront of a Facilities Manager’s responsibilities. Paper files make it borderline impossible to keep and quickly access accurate records and have full visibility and tracking.
The wider business and Board will also suffer if the Facilities Manager doesn’t have the data readily available to show what they need in order to avoid, prevent and mitigate problems. H&S measures, practices, policies and reporting all benefit from the 360° aerial view of CAFM.
Accurate knowledge and data promote day-to-day safety and compliance, and support the Facilities Manager in scheduling and managing the many tasks that keep the premises safe and in order. Specialist software underpins more and more standard business processes – and with good reason.
The right software will help you to manage:
- Health and safety regulations and compliance.
- Risk assessment and enforcement.
- Appropriate safety measures and training.
- Formally document and distribute policies and procedures.
- Optimal energy efficiency and management.
- Reduce space and maintenance costs.
- Manage assets, equipment and liabilities.
- Inventory and procurement.
- Streamline work order processes.
You don’t have to rely on your memory or manual documents anymore.
