Facilities team everywhere are struggling to find information quickly, onboard new employees, and boost productivity. These short videos showcase facilities managers who’ve faced down and solved every one of those problems. From Ann Arbor, Michigan to California’s Central Valley, these facilities managers are making technology work for them.

Facilities Challenge: Finding Information

What do the teams who manage healthcare, government, and educational facilities in California, Michigan, Florida, and Oregon have in common? They all used to spend countless hours searching for the information they needed to do their job.

That is until they integrated the ARC Facilities Platform into their workflows. With ARC, facilities managers James Bombaci, Matt Baker, Bridget Graham, Tim Edsell, and Rich Steiger have solved their most persistent challenge to productivity: poor information management.

Hear these facilities managers talk about solving the challenge of finding information in this video:

Facilities Challenge: Retiring Workers

The FM industry is facing an exodus of retiring workers. In the next eight years, 40% of facility management professionals will start retiring. I’ve discussed this in the past and cited the need for the industry to start reaching millennials.

Still, reaching a younger workforce is one thing. Onboarding them and transferring information from the outgoing employees to the new staff is an entirely different challenge.

In this video, listen to John Crouch, Director of Facilities at AdventHealth Wesley Chapel and Rich Steiger, Facilities Manager at Orange County Government, discuss how to mitigate the expense of retiring workers.
