All businesses collect facility-related data—everything from financial figures, repair and maintenance costs, to reporting meeting room usage and logging employee requests. But why is this information important? And how can we better use it? We’ll discuss some of the reasons why reporting is important.
Know Your Audience
A good report depends on accurate data. How do you get accurate data? First, consider the report’s audience. Who will read this report? What information is most important? Think about the different ways each reporting method can be tailored to its specific purpose and the intended audience. This will make it easier for issues to be resolved, and for miscommunications to be minimized.
Facility Management Software
If you haven’t heard about facility management software yet, it’s a good time to study up, because there have been a lot of changes and there are many more to come.
By implementing software with reporting and analytics functionality, facility managers can start tapping into the endless stream of useful data available to help them craft constructive, innovative, and cost-saving changes that can revolutionize the way employees do their work and how workers can better relate to one another to do their jobs more effectively.
The Power of Information
Once you have the right information, given to you in a way you can understand at every level, you can then make the necessary changes to your facility’s processes and procedures to amp up productivity while reducing costs.
