Facilities consultant. We’re certain that you know what those two words mean separately, but how about when they’re placed next to each other? A facilities consultant could be the key to your business saving money and time, as well as generally increasing your productivity levels, and yet you may have never considered using one.
Let us explain the key aims of FM consultants. In short, they will look at the non-core elements of your business: to the coordination of space, infrastructure, people and organisation, often associated with the administration of office blocks, arenas, schools, sporting complexes, convention centres, shopping complexes, hospitals, hotels, etc., with services such as cleaning, catering, security, utilities and telecommunications, and assess where there are inefficiencies.
You might be thinking, “but security and catering are vital to my business, surely I should be considering them?” You’d be right – they are vital. However, they’re not the sorts of things that you want to be worried about on a daily basis, when you’ve got sales targets you want to exceed.
The facilities consultant, then, can identify areas within these non-core services where time is being lost or money is being needlessly spent. In the case of cleaning, for example, the solution might lie in ensuring that key responsibilities are known and clear rosters are in place, or, in some cases, different suppliers might be sourced.
FM consultants will work closely with you or your existing Facilities Manager to design a bespoke strategy that will suit your goals and expectations, creating a plan that will help with the maintenance (PPM) and operation of your business. The changes that are implemented can lead to consistency throughout departments, increased productivity, and, most importantly, a significant reduction in costs.
Crucially, a facilities consultant allows you to invest all of your time and attention in your main business goals.
