Facilities Management Resources
In retail environments, two key elements influence carpet's long-term success.
While touring stores and inspecting their janitor closets, it became apparent that stores were purchasing cleaning chemicals and other products that they needed on their own locally. Stores did not receive any discounts or negotiated rates for these products. They also did not have MSDS sheets on hand for the various products.
Reduce Cleaning Costs
Reducing cleaning costs can lead to improved operations.
Building Automation Systems (BAS) Toolkit
This Toolkit is a compilation of Guides, Education, Tools and general Resources from leading manufacturers in the building automation industry. One of the most active areas of business design and retrofit encompasses all things HVAC, including control systems. Retailers spend more than $20 billion on energy every year, and even a modest reduction in energy costs can result in a significant impact on profit margins and sales metrics. BAS solutions can help FMs achieve these goals. Energy Efficiency and Smart Energy will be key focus areas for FMs in the coming years, and for your benefit there are a number of related components in this kit. Regardless of your situation, and to help you tackle these issues, PRSM Association is here to help.
