Facilities management involves the maintenance of an organization's buildings and equipment so that the organization can run as smoothly as possible. Here are our top five tips to improve efficiency.
1. STREAMLINE DOCUMENTATION
Having countless sheets of paper to tick off and keep safe is a very outdated approach nowadays. Snapfix allows for efficient documentation through its app that team members can view and managers can edit work orders at any time.
2. UNDERSTAND THE STATE OF AN ASSET
Using data that is collected from each asset can ensure that the team knows which equipment is up to standard or if it needs to be replaced. Snapfix offers a dashboard reporting section that uses the data collected to help understand the status of an asset at any given time.
3. USING MOBILE DEVICES
For most people, the way we operate in everyday life includes the constant use of a smartphone or tablet. Incorporating mobile devices into facilities management allows for an ease of access for those involved. Snapfix uses the camera feature on devices to ensure a quick display of the asset with any information that the user inputs to be placed underneath it. This is then placed in its group as a task for all to see.
4. INCREASE ACCOUNTABILITY
Increasing the accountability of those involved with managing facilities will ensure the checks are done to the right standard and done regularly. Snapfix lets users sign off when completing a checklist so it displays who was responsible for managing the facility.
5. ENCOURAGE COMMUNICATION
Communication is at the focal point of managing anything. This is no different when it comes to facilities and for a practice to be effective, precise communication needs to be in place. Snapfix allows all users within a group to comment and edit any options about a task which updates all users at once and keeps concentration on relevant information about a facility.
