International. The FMHouse Institute presented a few days ago the report "Analysis Tools IWMS and degree of implementation of the Mercado Spanish", which has shown briefly and purely informative objective which is the degree of implementation of management tools in Facility Management (FM ).
According to the conclusions drawn from this analysis conducted on a sample of 137 companies, more than 85% of companies have some type of FM system management specifically implemented for some of its areas, with companies in the banking and telecommunications which have a higher degree of implementation thereof.
The area where the use of such tools is most commonly used is the maintenance, whereas, although there is an upward trend, is in the area of energy and sustainability where it is less usual a specific tool, according to data collected in the analysis.
Using tools IWMS the Facility Manager can be centralized and updated information, allowing you to manage efficiently the property and its associated services.
However, it must take into account when implementing one of these tools that the main problems as users, are the high cost and commitment by the own company staff to feed the system, as well as in many cases the implanted tool is not compatible with other existing tools.
To avoid some of these problems is very important to do a case study to define the needs of the company and thus decided by the market tool best suited to the real needs of the company.
If done this way, implement a tool IWMS will be a great benefit to virtually all departments FM and managing day to day.
