Make Your Life Easier by Outsourcing Key Facilities Maintenance Services
Facility managers have the enormous responsibility of overseeing locations and ensuring everything runs smoothly. This responsibility only continues to expand as your organization grows and adds locations to its portfolio. As this growth kicks off, brands must prioritize their physical brand assets — like signage, interior finishes, and more — to preserve their image. However, it can be hard for one person or a small department to keep up with the increased demands. Outsourcing key facilities maintenance services ensure you stay on top of any potential issues, while remaining a strong asset to your team.
Facilities Maintenance Services You Can Outsource
Signage is one of your most important brand assets, so it’s crucial to keep it up-to-date and looking fresh. It’s the first thing your customers look for when they’re heading to your location, and they’ll see your signage every time they visit. Likely, when it’s properly illuminated, clean, and in good condition, they won’t think twice about its appearance. However, if some letters are burned out, there is visible damage, or it otherwise looks unclean, it could sour their overall impression of your brand.
The solution? Outsource signage maintenance to an experienced company. Proactive signage maintenance ensures your assets look their best at all times. A quality partner will work with you to develop a preventative maintenance program that proactively addresses common and industry-specific maintenance issues. Implementing this system ensures your brand provides a reliable and meaningful experience for your customers at all times.
Lighting Audits and Upgrades
Lighting can dramatically influence customer perceptions and safety. Outdated or poorly functioning outdoor lighting can deter people from entering your store. Similarly, poor interior lighting can negatively affect sales, reduce the productivity of your employees, and more. Sub-optimal interior and exterior lighting can also have a negative impact on your energy footprint, leading to more costs over time.
Outsourcing regular lighting audits can help identify areas where your lighting can be improved. They give you an opportunity to make proactive upgrades that make your customers and employees feel more comfortable at your location, leading to a better brand experience.
Your locations’ interior is a massive contributor to brand perception. If your location features dirty, damaged, or worn-out assets, customers will feel uncomfortable and potentially lose trust in your brand.
Major remodels are common every several years, but your store likely can’t wait that long for smaller upgrades. That’s why incorporating regular refreshes into your maintenance system is incredibly important. These smaller projects may include painting, minor repairs, fixture swaps, new counters, updated flooring, or other quick work that doesn’t require crews to be on-site for more than a day or two.
Periodic refreshes are easy to outsource to an experienced maintenance provider. In fact, it may be most beneficial to outsource these services, especially if you’re a larger chain. For organizations with multiple locations, partnering with an experienced, national brand implementation company can save you the hassle of sourcing, shipping, and implementing the correct materials in your stores. By outsourcing your refreshes, you won’t have to worry about the logistics, and you’ll know each store puts forth an image that best represents your brand.
