    4 Key Things Facility Managers Should Know

    Posted by CleanAlert Blog Team on Jul 25, 2016 10:00:00 AM

    Facility managers today are expected to understand their company’s core business strategies and contribute to the bottom line — not only by decreasing facility costs. But also by improving productivity, revenue generating capacity and the image of their organizations. Companies also look to their facility managers to ensure their office buildings, factories, and other physical properties stay competitive with other companies in the same industry.

    Recent Trends In Energy Management

    Posted by CleanAlert Blog Team on Jul 20, 2016 8:30:00 AM

    Throughout the United States, about $400 billion is spent on energy each year to serve commercial and industrial buildings. About 20% to 30% of this energy is lost. By now most facility managers (FMS) recognize that energy efficiency can decrease costs and aid in the bottom line, but they might still be seeking the most efficient solutions. Despite the fact that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to efficiency solutions, the desire to innovate and collaborate is necessary.

    The Reason Why Facility Managers Are The Best Sustainability Executives

    Posted by CleanAlert Blog Team on Jul 18, 2016 8:30:00 AM

    Sustainability is no longer an issue for tomorrow, but a significant consideration for today. The increasing demands for sophistication with data, and for reporting under legislation such as Dodd-Frank and emerging standards as set by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), are creating the awareness that sustainability is already a business imperative, so much so that many organizations are recognizing the need for sustainability oversight. It is a perfect time for the introduction of a high-placed sustainability executive — possibly even a Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) — to bring an organization into the sustainability space beyond compliance. Here's why facility managers are top choices for those sustainability executive roles.

    How Mobile Tech Can Save Time and Yield Quicker Response Times For Facility Managers

    Posted by CleanAlert Blog Team on Jul 11, 2016 10:00:00 AM

    Labor efficiency — or basically time saved — is another key metric and benefit of using mobile technology effectively. Time saved by using CMMS on mobile is one of the most-cited advantages of mobile technology — indeed, 73% of respondents to the BOM survey said mobile technology helped improve work-order response time and tracking, and 62% said it improved workflow and reduced work order redundancy.

    Strazdas is the poster child for using mobile for work orders. He’s spent the last few years implementing a process of creating BIM models for all his buildings, and then, with some cooperation between vendors, tying the BIM models to his CMMS and making it all available on tablets.

    “Essentially, we bring a library room full of books directly to our technicians’ iPads,” he says. “The travel time is significantly cut.” That’s because the technicians can do their research on their tablets directly in front of a piece of equipment, not have to travel back and forth to get information from a desktop, or worse, the maintenance manual. “A computer in the shop did OK for awhile,” he says.

    “Now the shop computer is in their tool box vis-à-vis their iPads. All the information in the library is scanned, and the iPads include all the applications they need.”

    One thing to keep in mind, Strazdas says, is that the more information you make available, the easier you need to make it to find what you’re looking for. “How do you find the needle in the haystack on this little device?” he says. “Make sure the information is easily saved.” Strazdas created a standard “home page” on the iPads that includes links to all the technicians’ favorite applications, and a search engine to search BIM information.

    Strazdas says that in the first year of measuring reduced time on work orders, labor efficiency improved 15%, with a savings of a half million dollars.

    Great Facility Managers Can Make a Huge Difference

    Posted by CleanAlert Blog Team on Jun 20, 2016 9:00:00 AM

    Facility managers, along with property managers, are some of the most unrecognized heroes in business today. They work diligently to make sure all the core services of the facility or property are managed properly. They also coordinate events, work with many different departments regularly and are also in charge of paperwork & processes for the facility or property. This is no simple job. It takes someone who can multi-task while implementing best practices. It requires that person to perform on the present while considering how to do it better and more cost effectively in the future.
