The facilities management market is growing, with facility managers (FMs) playing a pivotal part in realising an organization’s core strategic objectives such as profitability, greater asset efficiency and improved employee retention through workplace environmental wellbeing. The UK market alone will be worth £106 billion by 2017, and computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software, a vital technology ally for FMs in managing their expanding responsibilities, has grown in power and functionality to match.

FM software can bring far reaching benefits, both to a facilities department and across an entire organization, especially when integrated with other software systems. Not only is there usually a positive return on investment in just a couple of years, but a system can also save time, increase financial control and transparency, allow for better managed organizational compliance, drive sustainability strategies, produce more meaningful information, and much more. This leads to an increased understanding as to how a business is performing, which when appropriately actioned, leads to greater efficiencies, service levels and profitability. Ultimately, this helps the business to achieve competitive advantage.

Research conducted last year by Service Works Global (SWG) in conjunction with the Facilities Show revealed the challenges that facilities managers anticipated for the year ahead, and explored their belief that more digital connectivity would make the industry smarter and more productive.

Following this, Service Works Group, authors of leading CMMS software application, QFM, has produced a new white paper titled ‘Integrating CMMS with Other Organizational Systems’. This in-depth guide explains the benefits of CMMS, and how these benefits can be multiplied through integration with an organization’s other applications to create a best of breed, fully functional, cost-efficient, enterprise-wide solution.

The white paper explores how different systems can work with CMMS software, and gives step-by-step guidance on how to create and manage an integration project. Software integration options include:

  • Building Management Systems (BMS)
  • Accounting software such as SAP and Sage
  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions
  • Human Resources (HR) tools
  • Space planning applications
  • Smart Assets
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM)
