How facility manager software can simplify your workflow
Facility management during construction saves medium- and long-term costs in the lifecycle of a building. Good facility management will help to optimize the building from a management perspective while it is still under construction on site. Maintenance starts with the first day a user enters the building and everyday business and work processes start. Learn about how to use software solutions to manage your future facilities based on your organizational duties.
Since facility managers are rarely entrusted with the supervision and maintenance of only one object, but often follow a credo as self-employed persons -the more objects, the more profitable -, we would like to present you the PlanRadar software as a tool for an optimized asset and facility management. Faster and smoother work, which also secures you against liability issues, allows you to land more orders and still meet your responsibilities. Based on this knowledge, we want you to learn more about our service and the best software solution for your needs.
The interpretation of a building as a living organism, to which all kinds of processes and information are inherent, leads to a virtually holistic approach to the tasks of a Facility Manager. Management costs and their reduction are correlated with the coordination of a variety of processes that serve to maintain the values of technology, aesthetics, and usability and thus maintain or increase the price of entire structural works and their facilities. Maintenance of facilities and assets are part of your everyday service. To keep your customer satisfied and your business on track, in the long run, it might be necessary for you to work with a mobile software solution which fits the main needs of your service. Become a mobile user of our management and maintenance software PlanRadar.
Facility Management – Challenge and Responsibility
Management software for the maintenance of facilities or a CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management System) in the real estate sector has to deal with huge amounts of data. Only through the collection of information, it becomes possible to optimize the usage of resources like manpower, time and money to have energy efficient buildings. As a facility manager, you plan the commissioning of the building. This includes the infrastructure of the building as well as the users and their requirements for the building and space. Offering the complexity of your activity to the owner of an extensive building for maintenance reasons as an added value means to understand its technical equipment and functionality as well as the end user. This creates a great potential for organizational confusion or even conflicts of interest in between good management based on your work and the service of other contractors.
Particularly technical facility management systems (or CMMS) have to deal with complicated technical structures such as those found in industry. Specialists are needed to prevent real failure of electrical and computer-controlled installations as part of air conditioning systems, freight elevators or complex computer servers, and to initiate targeted measures in the event of damage, in order to put the technical building equipment back into operation. These are the main assets and facilities of a building.
In the event of a breakdown, it is often no longer just a matter of a lot of money, but a serious breach of duty within the framework of your statutory management responsibility and the service you provided to your customer. The term -organizational fault – refers to the violation of organizational duty, which includes the following points:
- Culpability regarding the establishment of the organizational and operational structure
- Selection fault
- Direct negligence
- Monitoring fault.
In order to be able to avoid liability in the long term, facility management also requires a clear use of organization with quick paths and processes and at the same time documentation that can be proven, because, in case of doubt, you’ll see yourself absent on business – in court.
PlanRadar software as a documentation tool for defect management and fault management intervenes at precisely this point and ensures a clear distribution of tasks and a proven history of compliance with obligations. Test the software and mobile app in your daily work now for 30 days free of charge!
