Enterprise Facilities Management Services (EFMS) can encompass anything the client envisions or needs. Most small companies can't afford a full-time facility professional, and they likely don't need one full-time. The average annual salary for a qualified facilities manager in the Midwest is over $70k, not including benefits and office occupancy. Smaller firms, with fewer employees and small facilities, may only need someone for ten hours weekly, or maybe even five or two! We have the capability to completely takeover the facilities management role and serve that function as if we are a full-time facilities manager or director of facilities. In these cases, we can even assume control of existing contract management for services such as lawn/landscape and custodial. We can become your single-point-of-contact facilities professional. For any issue that arises you just place one call to us. Even if we can't solve the problem, we will coordinate any subcontractors and provide detailed information to the client. We can commit to any level of service that includes a negotiated number of onsite hours and guaranteed response time to requests and emergencies.
In some cases, certain services may be provided by a landlord while others remain the responsibility of the tenant. This arrangement certainly provides an opportunity for the tenant business to save on facilities concerns, but someone needs to hold the landlord accountable. Let us handle any complaints you may have with the level of landlord attention to parking lots, roofs, trash service, etc.
Sometimes a business has a full-time staff member that is adequately managing the necessary day-to-day functions of the job. However, everyone has a 'first-time' on occasion. That's how professionals improve their knowledge and skills. But should they be expected to fly solo and figure these first-time crises out alone? Particularly with critical systems that can interrupt business operations, time becomes a bigger enemy than lack of knowledge. We would love to be the first call you make to assist your full-time staff in providing a speedy resolution to your problem. Of course, we'll be available the next time! But if we've truly helped your facilities professional then you hopefully you won't need us for the same issue.
For many professional partnerships such as doctors, dentists, or accountants, the management of facilities falls on one of the partners. In some cases, they are even compensated by their fellow partners for any time they dedicate to this function. In any event, it isn't what they went to school for! In other cases, a receptionist or office manager becomes the defacto facilities manager. But their process rarely extends beyond using a browser to locate an electrician, plumber, etc from a list prioritized by Google or Bing. Why not let us be your first call?
