A revolution in FM
Facilities management has not delivered
Research indicates that the majority of FM contracts are not extended after the first term and are retendered. Customer feedback suggests that FM providers are operating at somewhere between ‘reasonable’ and ‘minimum’ expectations. This is hardly setting new standards of excellence for the industry.
The TFM model is broken. The traditional TFM structure is a one-size-fits-all approach will no longer cut it with clients. It has a managing agent acting as intermediary between the client and the actual suppliers of the service – and charging handsomely for it. These agents are often inexperienced in the actual delivery of services.
In the current climate, managing agents are squeezing suppliers to drive costs down, leading suppliers to cut corners and reduce quality. Meanwhile the gap between the client and service provider is becoming a chasm.
Transparency, efficiency, integration – these are the key to adding value.
