“QFM has allowed us to improve service levels to end users and importantly allows us to monitor our own performance in order to support cost-effective decision making and drive future FM strategy.”
With significant estate to manage, independent schools face the challenge of delivering optimum service delivery levels to ensure continued high quality teaching.
Service Works Global’s specialist education team and CMMS software, QFM, delivers sustainable reductions to school estates maintenance costs and improves asset availability through comprehensive lifecycle tools to support the teaching environment.
The integrated helpdesk tools make easy work of scheduling resources, managing deadlines and keeping track of jobs; and QFM centralises all employee and contractor DBS and other certifications and prompts when checks are due for renewal to provide compliance and peace of mind. Work can be automatically sent to the most suitable engineer or operative via the QFM app on any mobile device, improving communication and job rectification times. Comprehensive reporting tools allow estates teams to monitor KPIs and SLAs across all campuses.
Booking and space management tools provide essential insight and management of resources. QFM Bookings module support the management of out-of-hours hiring of school space, with cross-charging and invoicing to aid budgetary control, as well as booking rooms, porterage and transport. QFM’s space planning and move management tools help optimise school or college layouts and plan a move with minimal disruption.
