The larger your building, campus, warehouse, or facility is—the more challenging it is to manage and maintain. This is one of the reasons outsourcing facilities management is on the rise. So much so, that industry insiders refer to the trend as the “outsourcing evolution”.
From 2016 to 2020, the number of global organizations in prime markets working with a full or part-time FM partner grew from 44% to 50%. So, even before the pandemic, the number was rising.
When you identify a reliable partner, you can enjoy the 3 benefits below.
#1 Decreased Costs, Increased Quality
On average, facility spending decreases by 15% while the quality of products and services increases. There are a variety of reasons for this dual benefit, the most notable being:
- Your partner’s bulk supply and product purchasing capacity reduce instantly reduce costs.
- Advanced monitors, sensors, and technology are utilized for preventative maintenance.
- Services can be scaled during growth spurts and busy seasons without overtime spending or onboarding expenses.
- One partner can be contracted for everything from day-to-day cleaning and maintenance to full construction services.
- No more time wasted sorting through vendor bids and tenders as you have one partner that does it all
#2 Increased Productivity
One of the reasons maintenance projects are deferred is because your current staff can only get so much done in a day. Outsourcing facilities management provides the flexibility to bring in additional staff and specialists as needed. This increases productivity and helps you deliver on a range of your organizational objectives.
Many organizations begin by working with an FM partner for tasks, projects, or bundled daily or weekly services. As they realize the benefits of their lightened load, they often transition to full outsourcing.
#3 Sustainability and Green Objectives
The pressure is on to be a responsible corporate citizen. Everyone from your community to your tenants, employees, students, and clients will inquire about your facility’s green objectives. Thankfully, green technology has never been more impressive.
Your facilities service provider will ensure that your building invests in and implements a sustainability strategy that aligns with your organizational objectives.
