Healthcare, government, education and large corporations: four very different sectors but with common needs. One such need is facility management. After all, without properly functioning facilities, every task takes longer than necessary. Whether you supply a regional hospital, are responsible for the sales of a multinational company or provide education to hundreds of inquisitive children, you’re greatly helped by a well-managed environment. Only when all the means of doing your job are taken care of can you focus fully on what you are good at. Strong foundations ensure good results.
What is facility management?
Let's get back to basics. To put it very simply, facility management is about facilitating staff in every possible way. A facility manager ensures that every employee has the services and resources they need to do their job properly. In this way, a staff member doesn't have to worry about peripheral issues but can spend all his/her time on the area of expertise.
SmartDocuments as a facility partner
Sometimes it isn't obvious to people just how broad facility management can be. For example, you may not realise that IT could be part of it. After all, what supports an employee better than a smoothly functioning IT system and appropriate software? At SmartDocuments, that is one of our key goals: to facilitate the daily activities of organisations by providing user-friendly software, which will allow them to focus primarily on their core business.
Corporate identity automation & simple document creation
So, how exactly does SmartDocuments fit into the area of facility management? Essentially, the software we provide automates the creation of documents and the corporate identity management. With the push of a button, exactly the document you need can be produced, and with the correct (most recent) corporate identity. Without SmartDocuments, creating documents can involve quite a lot of hassle – from searching for the most recent version of your company logo to working out how to insert it. With our software, it's all there for you. This ensures you have time to focus on things that really matter.
SmartDocuments app: always within reach
Which company doesn't have an app these days? Well, we didn't pass on the opportunity either. We've developed a user-friendly SmartDocuments app that's ideal for digitising your checklists. It’s an useful solution for facility management staff and cleaning services, among others. The app is always in your pocket and allows you to tick off tasks in real time. The related reporting is available immediately! This could save everyone a lot of time, don't you think?
A solid base thanks to good IT provision
Hopefully, we’ve convinced you that IT should be seen as an integral part of facility management. However, in case you still need convincing, here are some more perspectives. Concerning the automation of corporate identity management, SmartDocuments not only makes your communications much less error prone but also ensures a strong brand identity because you will be able to create a uniform look. It's also very easy to use. Oh, and that app? Ticking off tasks ‘on the spot’ is always satisfying, isn’t it? The IT measures described above also save time. And (yes, here it comes again) time = money. So, cost saving, as it turns out, goes hand in hand with good facility management.
