Essential Tools for Facility Management Companies

Facility management requires the right tools to get the job done. Whether you already have a facility manager or you need help as your business expands, Omnia360 can help take your team to the next level. Today’s blog outlines essential tools for facility management companies.

Computerized Maintenance Management Systems

A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS),  covers all of the physical assets in your facility. The CMMS tracks the maintenance of your building, operations, and equipment. A robust CMMS allows you to easily add or subtract assets, maintain their value, and determine what needs maintenance next. Omnia360’s facility management solutions can provide you with world-class CMMS or work with your system to ensure timely services.

Work Order Requests

Omnia360 makes it easy to order R&M services, from HVAC and plumbing to handyman and electrical. Ordering R&M must be easy enough for you to select the services you need when you need them. Ask us about how to utilize our one-stop-shop for all of your facility management needs.

Problem-Solving Skills

Facility management companies need robust problem-solving skills. That means diverse minds with experience and expertise in the industry. The Omnia360 team offers more than 60 years of collective experience. We’ve seen a lot of things in our time, and our team understands how to prevent problems before they start.

Preventive and Scheduled Maintenance

The coordination for planned activities is critical to the success of any maintenance program.  The Omnia360 CMMS will automatically schedule and communicate planned activity and repetitive services.

7 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Facility Management Company

At Omnia360, we understand your concerns. From day-to-day operations and strategic facility management to bundled services that save money, our team can help your facility work more efficiently while delivering cost-effectiveness. Before you hire a facility management company, ask them these seven questions.

1. How can you save our company money?

In addition to offering a wide range of services, a facility management company must be cost-effective while saving you money. Omnia360 will outline precisely how we save you money versus hiring your own staff or having piecemeal services from several providers.

2. What portion of your services are self-performed versus subcontracted?

Facility management companies often have their own trucks (Omnia360 does) for services they perform in-house. However, we know that some companies do things better than we do. Self-performing work orders lowers overall costs and gives your facility management company more control. However, the teams we contract with are vetted well before becoming part of our bundled services package. We ensure everything is right before anyone takes a step in your facility.

3. What services does your facility management company specialize in?

Specialization is common in facility management. Some companies offer in-house electrical or plumbing services. Others specialize in landscaping or janitorial. The Omnia360 team will go over what we’re best at, what services provide you with the best margins, and which is the best strategy for your facility.

4. How soon can you have someone at my facility for emergency service?

Emergencies happen. An electrical wire breaks. A pipe bursts. How quickly can your facility management company respond with emergency service, even at 3 a.m. on Thursday? Omnia360 prides itself on quick turnarounds, rapid response times, and getting your problems solved as soon as possible. 

5. How do you describe your work order process?

Submitting a work order with Omnia360 means fast, efficient response times. Once you submit a work order through our system, we effectively send the right technician or teams to your place when you need them. Work orders are in addition to regular services we provide daily, weekly, or monthly.

6. Can you help me plan for the future?

Omnia360 does more than just perform regular tasks. Our teams work closely with yours to meet your future needs with a strategic plan aimed to maximize services and optimize costs. Facility management shouldn’t be something you need to worry about in the years ahead.

7. Do you have any references?

Any facility management company should be able to provide you with a list of references who can talk to you. Just a short email or quick phone call can put you in touch with the right person to talk to you about how well a particular facility management firm works with them.

Hallmarks of a Fantastic Facility Management Company

Omnia360’s experienced team specializes in integrated facility management services. Our goal is to make your facility run more efficiently and effectively. In today’s blog from Omnia360, we look at the hallmarks of a fantastic facility management company.

Experience

Facility management’s goal is to make your operations run more smoothly than before. Teams and personnel at a facility management company should have experience in a complete portfolio of facility management services, enabling them to apply their expertise to meet all of your needs. Omnia360’s leadership team has more than 60 years of combined experience in the field. 

Communication

The best facility management companies should always maintain open lines of communication with their clients. At Omnia360 Facility Solutions, we listen to your concerns first and foremost. Then we keep the conversation going by talking to you about your needs, what you want to accomplish, and how we can be a vital part of your team. Our staff is always ready to respond to requests, even during emergencies. 

Customization

Every client is different and every facility is different. There are no “one size fits all” solutions in our industry. That’s why one cornerstone of great facility management revolves around customizing plans for each client. Do you need HVAC and landscaping but no janitorial services? Do you have some employees who handle maintenance, but your facility is growing rapidly? Omnia360 can either supplement your in-house teams or create new outsourced teams for whatever facility needs you have.

Customer Service

Facility management companies prepare you for the unexpected. You may not need HVAC services all of the time. However, if your system breaks down at 3 a.m. in the middle of third shift on Saturday morning, you can’t afford downtime. Do you know if your facility management company will be able to send the right team to your facility promptly? Omnia360 can do that.

Evolving & Solving

Your facility’s needs and problems change over time. The solutions provided by a facility management company should also evolve with you. You might not need janitorial services from us in a year once you get your own teams in place. However, your shiny new warehouse might need landscaping because it’s in a more suburban setting. Omnia360 is flexible with regard to adding or subtracting bundled services over time. Talk to us, and we’ll see how we can make your facility better.

Creating Value

The overall goal of facility management is to create value in day-to-day operations as well as over time. Omnia360 works with your team to analyze KPIs to determine the best way forward in the months and years to come.

5 Reasons Why You Need Integrated Facility Management

Omnia360 specializes in integrated facility management and solutions. We earned our expertise through more than 100 years of combined experience in our leadership team. In today’s blog from Omnia360, we take a look at the top five reasons why you need integrated facility management for your building.

1. Sharpen Your Focus

You want to focus on your core business model, driven by your high-level goals to meet revenue and profit expectations. You don’t want to have to deal with multiple vendors to get basic services at your facility. When you communicate with one company that handles a broad range of services, which is what defines integrated facility management, it simplifies many aspects of your physical building. We’ll take care of those things while letting you pay attention to what matters most to your company.

2. Wholesale Versus Retail

We compare our services to wholesale versus retail. Much in the same way you shop at a wholesale store to lower your per-unit costs of items, Omnia360 saves you money by bundling services together. When you shop for integrated services separately, you’ll soon realize how much you save by going with a single vendor for multiple services. Consolidation of integrated facility management services in one place allows you to scale your services. 

3. Save Time & Money

Time is money. Integrated facility management is all about cost-effectiveness. You save time by contacting one company for many needs. Your billing happens with one company rather than several. You don’t have to contact multiple vendors, deal with multiple sales reps, and negotiate dozens of quotes and contracts. Omnia360 offers a one-stop-shop for comprehensive services. 

4. Cohesion & Coordination 

Your integrated facility management firm can coordinate services for plumbing, electrical, HVAC, landscaping, janitorial, clean-up, pest control, and much more. You might even realize that one concern at your facility needs more than one service. A leaky pipe may have shorted out some vital electrical lines. You’ll need to coordinate an electrician and a plumber, and it may not be a convenient time (late night, third shift, or weekends). Omnia360 takes care of this for you.

5. Minimizing Downtime

Downtime means no productivity. Coordinating services through integrated facility management helps to minimize downtime, work interruptions, and disruptions to your staff and customers. The Omnia360 team works with stakeholders and leaders of your company to take care of whatever issues you face.
