In facility management, people, places, technology, and processes are integrated, using multiple disciplines to ensure functionality in the environment. Facility managers provide services that support core business activities. Human capital management solutions from EPAY Systems can help facility management companies streamline and improve critical functions for increased efficiency in service and support.
The Role of Facility Management
The needs of a company will naturally change as it expands from a small single-site firm to a larger multi-site organization. Security, cleaning, reception, adequate office space, and other issues can quickly become major concerns in a rapidly growing business. Engaging suppliers to meet all of these needs, while striving to maintain compliance with safety and labor regulations, can lead to a drain on the existing team and financial resources. This is when facility managers can step in and provide solutions.
Facility managers are the ultimate organizers in a diverse field with widely varying responsibilities, depending on the type of business. Areas of responsibility in facility management may include:
- Contract management and procurement
- Building and grounds maintenance
- Space management
- Communication and utilities infrastructure
- Health and safety
- Vending and catering
Facility management companies can bring expertise to company operations in areas not necessarily covered by the existing in-house teams. They can deliver facilities services that drive operational efficiencies, cost savings, and environmental compliance, adding innovation and value to operations and enabling in-house personnel to focus on core business activities.
