In previous blogs we've discussed ways to reduce energy consumption, make savings through better space utilisation and looked at considerations for maximising resources outside the building, but how about those assets we already have? It's a great idea to be able to measure and monitor some of the equipment that is already in situ and to make sure it's being managed and maintained in the most efficient way. Being able to gather data on assets means that you can keep on top of their performance and ensure that they're maintained to prevent disruptive failure, which is costly financially and in terms of down time. Assets that need servicing at regular intervals can be monitored to investigate whether time between services can be extended reducing costs and manpower.
It's almost been a year since we presented at Think FM2017. We spoke about a number of issues Facilities Management face on a day to day basis and looked at ways technology can take on these challenges, enLight Think FM 2017 presentation.
As we prepare for this year's event we've taken a look at what is current for Facilities Management and how our new product range will address these challenges of reducing costs and improving efficiencies.
Fast approaching on 1st May 2018 is the annual Think FM event in London. Without doubt, if you are involved in Facilities Management, in any capacity, this is an event not to be missed. There'll be numerous sessions covering topical subjects within the Facilities Management field such as;
Managing energy reduction and utilities is close to the top of most businesses agendas these days. We're all being asked to find ways to reduce consumption, use energy more efficiently, recycle, reuse and above all save costs. It's not as easy as it might seem. There are a number of devices available that help you measure energy consumption in order to identify heavy use areas but they often rely on manpower to physically go around testing usage in different departments and buildings. The data collected isn't always accurate and not carried out in real time. It can show you how much you're using and where, but doesn't actively help you to reduce consumption.
