3 Reasons Why Keeping Your Own Facilities Maintenance Can Save You Money


Facilities management is an essential part of any business, regardless of size. Ensuring that the business runs smoothly, that customer needs are met, and that employees feel safe and protected by employers are all crucial activities for every organization to prioritize.

Although such a key part of business, the current trend is to outsource rather than dedicate an entire department to Facilities Management. Here are some ideas on how to take the most intelligent approach and some of the reasons why keeping your maintenance as an internal function can save your business money:


Internal Maintenance is cheaper in the long run

Outsourcing facilities management services can often be costly. Mainly, labor and resources are managed by the area being maintained — outsourced maintenance will normally try to deliver at the lowest cost for the business completing the maintenance. You pay top dollar for the basic minimum. Having your facilities management department ensures that you get exactly what you need when you need it, and at consistent quality.


Your maintenance can grow as your business does

The growing requirements for your business shouldn’t impact your day-to-day running costs and having a say on quality maintenance products where efficacy and dilution is a key area of savings. Controlling your product inventory while having a consistent maintenance system is actually cheaper in the long run, as it is specifically tailored to your growing needs.


You’re guaranteed high-quality service

When in control of your own facilities management service, you are guaranteed to be working with people who are not only experts in what they do, but who are also deeply passionate about it because these are people you choose to be on your team. Be it a home-grown asset or a new specialist who keeps up with emerging technologies and trends—your team is how you like it. This means that the service that you’re receiving will always be of the highest possible quality. Aside from the security of keeping everything in-house, your own team will always be able to identify innovative ways that your business can save money without compromising on quality.
