The trillion-dollar facility management industry has become an integral partner for many businesses in the U.S. Earlier; residential facility management was a prime area for realtors and builders. But as business dynamics changed in recent years (owing to the pandemic), full-service facility solutions for commercial needs have emerged rapidly.
Businesses are looking at facility management companies as partners to not only maintain their buildings but also help them increase profitability. If it’s your first time hiring a facility management service, check out these tips.
Facility management is not a one-size-fits-all mantra anymore. A facility management solution should cater to your industry-specific customization needs. If your facility management company cannot offer you a customized preventative maintenance service or a waste solution tailored for you, it’s better to skip working with them.
This may be only true for multi-location businesses, but who doesn’t wannnt to expand their company? When hiring a facility management service, find one with a vast network of partners and resources across the country. In fact, if your facility management service has a presence abroad, it’s a plus!
In addition to being geographically present, a full-service facility solution provider should also be accustomed to various trades. You may want to hire a facility service provider for commercial waste management right now. But will you hire another for fire alarm system maintenance? We think so not! Hire someone that offers diverse expertise.
Facility management does not have to be costly or complex. Opt for a facility management service that offers optimized costs and plans that fit your budget. On another note, look for a facility management service that’s willing to offer cashback in case of a poor experience. This shows confidence and prestige on the vendor’s part.
In addition to a vast network of resources and expertise, a facility service manager should ace customer service. This can be done with the help of dedicated project managers that are available to cater to each client’s needs at any time of the day. Look for a service that promises dedicated attention and lower downtime.
Lastly, look for industry reputation and the number of years a facility management service has been working. And in that case, check out our services at Facilities USA.
