Concept Advantage, which integrates with the company’s existing Concept Evolution CAFM system, has been designed specifically to encourage the entire workplace community to contribute to the success of the facilities they occupy. It aims to devolve FM beyond the core of managers, operatives and suppliers who have the formal responsibility for it, by allowing the contribution to effective FM, to be put directly in the hands of all those on the receiving end. These apps embrace the enabling technologies that are now established – including smartphones, mobile and wireless communications, the internet-of-things, and machine-to-machine intelligence, to deliver ‘consumerised’ FM.
The new apps also offer a much wider reach and faster processes for reporting, requesting, and responding to FM-related matters, and their purpose is to help to further dissolve the boundaries that have tended to box FM into a ‘silo of responsibility’ which has previously been the (almost) exclusive domain of FM managers, maintenance engineers and IT.
The ease of acquiring and using these apps, are key to maximising widespread use, to demonstrate the value from buy-in of as wide a user community as possible.
