Facility maintenance services are activities performed in a routine, scheduled way to keep buildings in good operating condition; janitorial and engineering services are considered facility maintenance services. Businesses may outsource facility maintenance duties to facilities management companies, organizations who oversee computing, telecommunications, and property or building management services in addition to janitorial and engineering services, for instance. One advantage to outsourcing services such as facilities maintenance services is that a business can free up capital to be reinvested in their core business. But how does an organization know if they’re getting the best dollar value for these services? That’s where ERA can help. Experienced ERA consultants work with business clients to evaluate their supplier relationships — facility maintenance companies and facilities management services providers— to unlock extra cash flow.
