FACILITIES MANAGEMENT

Facility management is a profession that involves a wide range of disciplines to ensure your facility functions optimally for the people who live or work in them. Facility management goes beyond just maintenance to look at the complete functionality of your facility, including the interaction of people, process, and technology. The goal of Aroona Solutions is to make any building or facility operation run more efficiently.

In order for a facility to run efficiently and stay compliant, it requires a range of services to be carried out – including the management of both hard and soft facilities management services.

MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT

Your maintenance strategy is crucial in ensuring your buildings are managed effectively. In turn, they help to maximise business productivity and deliver employee and occupant satisfaction.

Planning preventative maintenance can reduce the amount of reactive maintenance needed in the long term. For example, effective maintenance planning can be used to plan routine fire safety equipment inspections and HVAC servicing to ensure these hard FM services are running smoothly. By planning ahead for future maintenance needs, businesses can then reduce the risk of unplanned downtime. Helping increase productivity and enhance occupant satisfaction.

ASSET MANAGEMENT

Asset management plays a significant role in the successful delivery of hard and soft facility management services. It also goes hand in hand with planned maintenance. The process involves understanding the working condition and location of all equipment. It then informs budgeting processes by helping to determine the total costs of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI) of each asset. Enabling businesses to decide whether an asset should be repaired, replaced, or disposed of.

Asset management also consists of asset tracking. Aroona Solutions assists in electronically tagging equipment such as laptops and tools for tracking and monitoring purposes. By keeping track of assets, facility owners can ensure employees and occupants have access to equipment when they need it.

  • Asset management planning and scheduling
