Pre-Conference Workshops: Tuesday, 27th August 2019


9:30 am - 12:00 pm Integrating Information Technology to More Effectively Manage Contractors and Reduce Risk

Facilities Management is often driven by man-power and paper back which as a result opens the doors to plenty of human error. New automated technology and smart services are becoming an innovative way to have greater control of governance, visibility, and efficiency in managing remote contractors. This workshop will explore the transformation you could make from market research to integration to possible outcomes for your organisation.

  • Exploring platforms that provide real-time information communication and ease-of-use between managers and contractors
  • How technology can assure prequalification requirements of contractors and regulate compliance operations and audits
  • Investigating change management strategies to ensure successful transformation
