Given the complex, time-consuming, resource-intensive nature of facilities management, organizations can be tempted to dive quickly into implementing a solution that promises relief.
Is the organization spending unnecessary money on square footage it doesn’t need because space isn’t allocated efficiently? Is the facilities staff spending unnecessary time collecting data and allocating facilities manually based on printed CAD drawings? A software solution can help solve these and other facilities management issues.
But before the implementation goes too far too fast, there are other steps the organization should take.
This implementation guide will describe an approach that includes the business-focused steps, beginning with aligning the selection of facilities management software and the implementation of products with an established business case.
It will address how to achieve business goals in five key facilities management areas—facilities space management, strategic facilities planning, workplace performance management, move management and workplace reservation management. It will conclude with an overview of the software implementation process, from analysis and design through data preparation, development, test and deployment.
