Facility managers must ensure that inspections take place every week, if not daily. As a result, hundreds of hours are spent writing reports, filing documents and managing the necessary actions. Besides, many of them are not followed up adequately. With facilities management software on your mobile device, you can do all of this in the field and in real-time, giving managers a clear view of the team and its progress.
The computer-aided facilities management software, as freeware, allows to automate routine inquiries, streamline order processes and proactively address problems via a web-based dashboard. Given the added value and benefits of facility maintenance management software, it is not surprising that many companies have begun to adopt this system and leverage its strengths.
However, implementing facilities management software is not as easy as it seems. Companies face numerous challenges from their employees and contractors. Difficulties that usually arise because factors have been overlooked. The result is generally low acceptance of FM software implementation.
Here are the five most significant challenges that facility managers have to face if they want to implement a facility management tool:
Often the change management planning does not sufficiently cover all events that can influence the implementation. These include, but are not limited to, business growth, software upgrades and updates, and sudden changes to the hardware required to run the facilities management software. Planning should take these events into account and carefully examine them. Action plans should also be created to address associated problems. This will ensure that the implementation can be maintained even if these events occur.
Some organizations fail to verify that the selected facility management software meets all the criteria required by business needs. For example, a facility manager may want certain features in the software, such as work order management, automatic issue of corrective actions, a unified recording system, offline inspections, and comprehensive data analysis. Typically, different facility managers have different preferences regarding the functions they require. Therefore, several facilities management software options must be prepared to select the one that best meets your business needs.
Some implementations of building management software fail because user acceptance tests (UAT) have not been conducted with the right end-users, such as building inspectors and contractors. There will always be employees who are willing to accept new technologies and those who are not. Therefore, you must secure the agreement of both parties.
For the integration to be successful, a facility manager should clearly explain to the end-user why the change is necessary. Show how facility management software can help people do their jobs better, and how it can ultimately improve the quality of work and life for everyone. Invite them to test it and get them excited about the benefits of the software to get them on board right from the start.
The software in facility management does not solve a company's problems if it cannot work with other company software. Although the tool digitizes processes, it is still cumbersome for the end-user if data has to be manually transferred from one software to the other.
A convincing software solution in facility management can connect with other software. It offers the possibility of deep integration so that everything works as one unit and helps the end user become more productive in his role.
With every new software, new questions and concerns arise again and again. If the facility manager and the users cannot rely on reliable customer service, they may not learn to use the facility management software adequately. As a result, they fall back on proven, manual methods and disregard the possibilities and advantages of a software solution.
Facility managers should always keep in mind that they need reliable technical support that will immediately resolve users' initial concerns about the facilities management software.
