Supply Chain Analysis Helps a Facility Services Provider Boost Contract Visibility and Productivity

Dec 26, 2017

Overview of the Facility Services Industry

In today’s competitive environment, cost reduction has become imperative in almost all sectors, be it corporate, educational, manufacturing, and residential. Facility services have emerged as the ideal tool to offer high-quality services such as maintenance, security, and cleaning at a low cost. The facility services industry caters to several end-use sectors including public and government, retail and commercial, manufacturing, healthcare, corporate, and residential and educational. Fueled by the improvement of business activities, effective control of harmful gas emissions, rising government regulations on waste management and energy have compelled organizations to turn to facility services in a bid to improve the long-term sustainability of businesses and the environment.

Let’s look at some of the fundamental factors that are expected to influence the growth prospects of the facility services industry in coming years.

  • Cutting down costs: In a lot of companies, facility managers are constantly asked to save the company money and help increase revenue. For instance, as machines get older, they become energy hogs if not taken care. Improving the lifespan of equipment and adequately tracking inventory and assets are two ways a company can achieve this goal.
  • Aging inventory systems: As equipment and building structures age, they begin to wear out. This will eventually lead to breakdowns and issues with structural integrity. Proper budgeting and planning for the upkeep of these will help to soften the blow and keep them from draining corporate revenues.

These factors are forcing firms operating in the facility services industry to leverage the use of supply chain analysis solutions. request free proposalSupply chain analysis solutions help firms facilitates tighter controls of procurement spends and compliance monitoring.
