Facility Issues helps organizations understand their complete facility picture to allow them to make sensible decisions about their physical property. This means having facilities that best advance the organizational mission and objectives. They can provide a quality physical environment, be cost effective, and environmentally sustainable. We understand that while every decision is not 100% data driven, they should all be informed. So we help you use your facility data for better management and planning.
Document and Improve Performance with Facility Benchmarking
Benchmarking is the easiest and most affordable way to gain insight from your facility data. Understand the context of your performance and quickly identify areas that need attention or not.
The potential cost savings or performance improvement associated with benchmarking can be significant. For example, our Research Facilities group saved more than $158 million of a 5-year period — an average of about $1.25 per square foot annually.
Get a Handle on Your Data With Facility Metrics & Scorecards
Having data at your fingertips is the foundation for being able to use it for management and planning. An integrated scorecard is an approach any organization can use.
Most organizations have facility data scattered across different systems and apps. Pulling it together in a consolidated set of metrics can help you avoid data overload and quickly find the information you need.
Develop Your Capabilities with Facility Metrics Workshops
Facility staff need to be smart consumers and users of data. Focused training can help them quickly start to use your data while they continue to learn other skills as needed.
Brush up your data skills with our hands-on training session specifically designed for facility management staff.
