Three Popular Trends in Facilities Management Sourcing

Without facility maintenance software, facility managers are forced to rely on spreadsheets, paper designs, or their expertise, wisdom, and memory to keep their facilities running.

Fremont, CA:  The facilities services industry is constantly changing. Outsourcing is a tried-and-true method that's becoming more popular due to an influx of service providers. The advantages of outsourcing facility services are numerous. They include the capacity to concentrate on core business activities, lower administrative costs, and offer more inventive and complex solutions. In addition, outsourcing allows businesses to manage risks better and comply with regulations. However, creating a clear path that will enable organizations to extract the greatest value is becoming a more difficult task.

Here are three emerging trends in facilities management sourcing:

Transformation in Visitor Management System:

Visitor management technology is affecting the entire organization, from organizational security to operational efficiency and data richness. It makes the atmosphere more secure. While visitor management systems continue to be a strong priority for improving overall brand experiences and perception, today's top concerns are safety and compliance. Companies want standards across the company, hence a multi-location, global VMS solution is required.

Automated Asset Maintenance:

Without facility maintenance software, facility managers are forced to rely on spreadsheets, paper designs, or their expertise, wisdom, and memory to keep their facilities running. Data that isn't documented will cause problems, especially if one facility manager leaves and is replaced. This lack of technology may harm the structure, resulting in more costly repairs. The key to future building success is automation. Rather than wasting time looking for information on the assets that need to be serviced in a facility, these systems will automatically surface the required information when the work is to be done.

Technologies in Parking & Traffic Management:

The prevalence of smartphone apps that provide real-time information on pricing and availability of parking slots, technologies that improve access control and payment, and demand for guiding systems that help drivers find parking are all examples of tech-based trends in parking. Many of these technological advancements align with the parking industry's efforts to make parking more ecologically friendly by reducing the time it takes to find a spot and lowering fuel usage and emissions.
