White Paper for FM Managers | 5 June 2009
Qube Global Software has announced the second in a series of White Papers aimed to help Facilities Managers survive and thrive during the economic downturn. The first White Paper focused on cost savings that could be made in three crucial areas – maintenance, help desk and procurement. In this second White Paper the focus is on assets.
The word asset has positive associations – assets are useful, valuable and necessary.
However assets cost money, to acquire, to hold and to maintain. If these costs are not properly controlled and managed, the company’s assets become a burden, resulting in a great deal of unnecessary expenditure.
The good news is this expenditure can be minimised and sometimes totally avoided. The key to these savings is asset management.
The White Paper considers some of the savings which can be made through effective asset management. It identifies key asset management strategies and suggests ways in which they can be streamlined for tighter control of assets, and bottom-line benefits.
Richard Fisher, Director at Planet comments “Assets play a key role in Facilities Management and therefore we wanted to focus on this area in our second White Paper. During this period of economic uncertainty it is an area where a number of savings can be made and this White Paper provides an overview of the ways this can be achieved.”
The Planet product division has been helping organisations make savings in Facilities Management for over 25 years.
We are pleased to announce that Bath and North East Somerset Council have decided to extend their suite of Qube Global Software solutions by investing in Qube Planet to manage their Asset Management requirements.
