SWG and BIFM launch good practice guide to selecting FM software

The British Institute of Facilities Management has this week published a revised Good Practice Guide to Selecting FM Software, in partnership with software specialist, Service Works Group.

The value of FM software is now widely recognised, but choosing the right software application to fit organisational requirements is an essential part of the process. The updated Guide explores all the factors that must be considered when considering a new software application, such as functionality, finance and training, so that FM professionals can not only implement their chosen software, but also ensure that a rapid return on investment is achieved.

BIFM’s research and information manager Peter Brogan said: “The profession of facilities management is now one of the fastest-growing and strategically-important parts of an organisation’s operational structure. To reflect this development, there has been a corresponding consolidation in the types of supporting software. Therefore, it’s important to provide guidance on this subject so that FM professionals can understand the benefits of different systems and maximise the bespoke software solutions available to them.”

Good Practice Guide author Annie Gales, Director of Service Works Group, adds: “This technology is helping FM professionals to improve their processes, increasing efficiency and stretching budgets further. The guide is a perfect companion during the decision-making process, casting light over key considerations, and exploring some of the many technological innovations and resulting trends that are influencing the sector.”

The BIFM Good Practice Guide to Selecting FM Software is available through their website here.
