Three top product picks providing today’s best FM solutions
Improvement and innovation are key to helping provide solutions to the daily challenges facing today’s facilities managers. Product-focused professionals have identified three of the next big solutions in the market which will also be showcased at Total Facilities 2018, Australia’s single most important facilities management event and marketplace for FM buyers and suppliers.
New technology requires an advanced skill set for operational maintenance and repair. Mobile devices enable higher productivity and real-time situation fixes with improved alerting to divert potential situations from escalating. Metra Australia offers a comprehensive and customised solution for leisure and sport facilities combining RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Systems) Access Control, electronic locking for lockers, cashless vending and locker rental/management software, that can be seamlessly integrated with third-party systems.
Metra is excited to launch its new mobile app for lockers called ‘MyMetraKey’ for remote and mobile management of electronic lockers. Designed specifically to reduce delivery costs and provide 24/7 pick-up for customers, this solution is helping FMs save time and money, thus reducing associated running costs such as delivery, staffing and warehousing.
Going green (er)
Sustainability ranks high on the FM agenda and office recycling forms an important part of many companies’ sustainability goals. Helping FMs to meet these goals is New Zealand-owned and operated Method Recycling. These innovators identified an opportunity to re-think office place recycling, developing an open-plan recycling station that engages individual users to consciously sort their waste.
Method recycling bins are a quality product with a great design which is helping to divert waste from landfill and encouraging organisation-wide culture of recycling across Australian and NZ offices. This innovative company has now gone one step further, launching its own ‘line in bin liners’. FMs can now pair recycling bins with Method’s own green durable organic compostable liners. These certified compostable bin liners are designed for the 60L office recycling station and available in carton of 300 liners.
FMs are always looking for solutions to better manage energy used for heating and cooling their buildings. With FMs at the heart of building operations they are fast becoming the stewards of the environment and ready to take on energy-saving solutions. Hochiki is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial and industrial fire detection, as well as emergency lighting solutions. Hochiki’s latest product, FIREscape is Australia’s first extra low voltage intelligent LED emergency lighting system. It features key customer benefits such as:
– Considerable reduction in energy consumption and CO2 emissions
– Extended luminaire and battery Life
– Significant savings in service, maintenance and cost of ownership
It’s no wonder this makes the top product list in today’s dynamic FM market.
