Innovative Facilities Management in the Cloud

 

The Urbanise Facilities platform is used to manage infrastructure, buildings, housing estates and local government. The system is cloud-based and completely integrates facilities, assets and workforce management into a single platform. Urbanise have also harnessed the power of AI and machine learning to help automate daily tasks which helps deliver efficiencies and improved service.

Today’s buildings need smart management — our Facilities Management platform slashes paperwork and gives you unprecedented clarity over your operations.

Complete visibility over all Facilities operations

Get full visibility over the outstanding reactive and planned jobs, KPI’s and repeat failures. At the same time, you can standardise your safety, induction and compliances processes. Our feature-rich Urbanise Facilities platform gives FM companies, service providers, and Local Councils all the tools they need on one integrated platform.

 

Automate your workforce management

If you still rely on a traditional CAFM system, you are likely wasting time on manual documentation and compliance. Urbanise Facilities streamlines these

  • Create, update and approve detailed work instructions in real time
  • Complete risk assessments more easily, before work begins
  • Automatically allocate jobs to the right people
  • Save photographs of work on site before and after completion
  • Record next actions on the spot, in real time
  • Provide instant customer feedback

The platform automatically tags all updates with the date, time and location, so compliance tracking is never an issue.

Effortless supplier management

With Urbanise Facilities, it’s simple to set up suppliers and assign them work. But we also make it easy for them to get on with the job. They can see customer histories, feedback ratings, and more — and they can upload before-and-after photos to confirm they’ve done the work right. Giving your support team clear visibility over jobs and suppliers boosts productivity and can reduce customer support costs by as much as 50%.

Workforce management made easy

With Urbanise Facilities, you can give your entire workforce access to job orders and schedules online. Employees, sub-contractors and third parties log into a secure account that contains their program of jobs, along with details of customers and their histories.

  • Dispatch work to field staff and suppliers more efficiently.
  • Improve response times by up to 50%.
  • Boost first-time fix rates by up to 25%.
  • Enhance quality control with before- and after-completion tracking.
  • All activities are tagged with a time, date and location, to ensure automatic compliance tracking.

Gain visibility and control

With the activities undertaken by your workforce being updated in real-time using smartphones or tablets, you can stay ahead of the curve. Whenever someone updates the status of a job, you’ll know about it — and so will your customers. Since you can see the work being done in real time, you can respond immediately: reallocate resources to problem areas, or act to help teams that are falling behind. Most importantly, you’ll see what’s been missed before it’s too late.

  • Reduce inbound call times.
  • Improve first-time fix rates.
  • Reduce customer support overheads by up to 50%.
  • Improve your operational productivity and time allocation.
  • Cultivate closer relationships between the operations center and your field force.

Deep AI and Machine Learning

Our current and future strategy for the Urbanise Facilities platform is to use AI and machine learning to automate many of the manual tasks that your team needs to conduct on a day to day basis. This will help your team perform at peak efficiency.

Areas of focus are:

  • Automatic job assignment
  • Image recognition to eliminate manual steps in work requests
  • Automated asset condition surveys

Promote your services online

The Urbanise Facilities platform comes with a module that enables FM managers, building managers and owners to design an E-Services storefront specifically for selling building services. Using the service catalog tool to set up your business model, you can design, deploy and promote a whole range of new services in minutes via a building or community self-service portal. It’s an innovative way to take your services into homes, shops, towers, and cities.

Buying services has never been easier

At Urbanise we believe in improving the customer journey. With a click to pay model, the customer experience is fast, easy and convenient.
