Keeping Your Facility Information Up-To-Date

In the case of an existing facility, the Facilities Managers need to firstly identify the facility information required and then categorise the information according to its purpose. This enables the right person to locate the right information.

The facility information needs to be accurate and reliable therefore validating the quality of the information produced.

The finally stage is that the information is reviewed and updated according to the changes to the facility to suit the evolving business requirements.


Using Technology to aid with FIM

Technology can be an important tool in significantly improving the integrity of information, data and the speed at which it is communicated. Does your current facility information system meet your needs in the following areas:
