London (PRWEB UK) 24 February 2013
With corporate buildings in every major city around the world, the bank accommodates tens of thousands of employees and clients’ needs every day. The focus of their large facilities team is to effectively maintain all of their existing and new buildings to the very highest standard by managing the facilities, attending to upgrades and repairs and by ensuring that the buildings are always energy efficient.
In the facilities maintenance process, multiple teams and external parties need to collaborate and rely on critical building information about the asset portfolio in order to respond to any building maintenance scenario. This includes details of the facilities, the history of repairs and maintenance, and all supplier and contract particulars.
The bank had previously used a tool to store data that did not support collaborative working or optimise the Facilities Management (FM) process. This resulted in inefficient information silos, which created time delays, ill-informed decision-making and unnecessary costs. Ultimately, this adversely affected the day-to-day operations of the facilities.
As a result, the bank deployed Adoddle FM as a centralised and controlled collaborative cloud service to support all parties in performing to the highest of standards – overachieving against their Key Performance Indicators, whilst enabling the entire process to run across their globally distributed team.
Fully implementing Adoddle enabled the bank to benefit from the following:
Asset Management in the Cloud
Collaboration and Approvals
Powerful Search Across all Assets
Prequalified Supplier Directory
Single-Sign-On and Email Integration
A Rock-Solid Audit Trail
Consequently, where there were previously information gaps due to paper documents or disconnected information silos, the teams can now access accurate data from a centralised location in real-time.
By integrating and automating key FM processes, delivery has been streamlined. Greater collaboration between internal teams and suppliers has encouraged a community to share best practices and knowledge. This has led to greater efficiency, improved communication and measurable results.
Increased transparency across the bank’s global asset portfolio and a collaborative approach to the FM workflows has provided the team with a continuous real-time update of progress, helping them to respond flexibly and plan more effectively.
