Share This Post

At Signum Facilities Management we believe that outsourcing your planned and reactive maintenance is incredibly beneficial for a business and increasingly necessary in today’s competitive market.

After all, to be the best at what you do, you need your focus to be on your business's core activities.

That said non core activities are very important and play a vital role in the efficiency and effectiveness of a company, which is why out-sourcing FM is so great. Allow a knowledgeable company to take care of your daily operations, utilising their specialist skills and experience frees up your time to concentrate on your priorities; your customers, services and values. This is what will give you a much needed competitive advantage in the marketplace.  Some of the advantages of using a facilities management company include;

Cost Saving – Let's face it, cost – both short and long term – this is always going to be the prominent factor in any company's decision making process; it has to be. So what do you think is one of the largest costs to a company? Apart from salaries, occupancy costs are usually the second highest. It therefore makes sense to manage those costs professionally which should (if done correctly) actually work out better value for money in the long run. Furthermore, does it not make more sense financially to have it done right first time by professionals?

Core Business – Your business's core activities should take priority throughout the working day. Strategically, you are placing yourself in a much better position in the market if you are focusing your resources on your customers, services and values. It makes little sense to dilute resources by carrying out operations that you do not specialise in. We feel that this is equally important as your cost considerations, as strategy is crucial for driving a business forwards and reaching those long term goals.

Best Practice – Like with most sectors, best practice is always advancing and changing shape. Facilities management companies have to deliver best practice system, and therefore can bring higher levels of performance to the buyer more quickly. Outsourcing in this way means that your company does not need to bear heavy investment costs to keep up to date with legislation and guidance.

Optimise Your In-House Employees – With the financial and time savings to be made when outsourcing to an FM company, what better investment is there to be had than to invest in your workforce? Take advantage of the reductions to be made using FM and enhance your employees skills and business potential. This will benefit your business as a whole and will also work towards retaining your prime employees.

Personnel Retention – Having a productive workforce is invaluable, and by maintaining a safe, comfortable and happy environment, a business can see the true potential of its employees. Yet again working to attract and retain prime employees. 

Safety – Safety in the work place is a must nowadays – standards are ever increasing and employees expect them to be met. Businesses really can’t afford not to take safety seriously anymore. Outsourcing to a facilities management company ensures that safety is not compromised.

Facilities Management really does have its benefits as many companies are now experiencing. Don’t get left behind!
