During the MEFMA Confex, Alex Davies shared knowledge on innovative measures FM Clients around the world are undertaking to maximize efficiency in asset performance, improve asset life and simultaneously reduce operational costs. Energy costs are projected to rise in the region and therefore will require companies to be leaner. It will drive companies to find ways of being more efficient and resourceful to reduce the impact of rising energy costs on their budgets and overheads to maintain their profitability and competitive advantage.
During the recession FM companies and clients focused on leaner operations and cost savings when budgets were reduced. The industry as a whole has become more cost sensitive as a result and clients are now wiser with their budget spends. FM providers are constantly challenged to decrease their costs and even though the FM industry is evolving, it is not yet a mature industry where innovative measures have been fully adopted and implemented. We at Emrill have developed and already delivered some of these innovations in our business to provide further savings to our clients.
We hope to contribute to the industry growth, maturity and the enhancement of service standards in the region.
