PFM AWARDS: Meet the finalists in Partners in Sport

21 August 2015

There are six finalists in three partnerships in this year's Partners in Sport category. These include CAFM Explorer with Manchester City FC; Corps Security with the Commonwealth Games; and Shepherd FM with a corporate client that cannot at this time be named owing to permission restrictions.

CAFM Explorer with Manchester City FC

CAFM Explorer with Manchester City FC
The rising success of Manchester City Football Club on the pitch has resulted in the expansion of facilities across the Etihad Campus and the recently opened City Football Academy complex.  Manchester City FC chose CAFM Explorer to be its preferred facilities software provider in 2013 to manage its multiple locations, provide a reactive help desk, planned maintenance scheduling, room booking functionality including self-service options, and full management of facilities, grounds and pitches. Management of the facilities is now more effectively structured and the carbon footprint reduced. Following a successful implementation process, the Club and CAFM Explorer worked closely together to further develop the software to fit within Manchester Football Club’s specifications, particularly for the web-based room booking and hotel room booking reporting. The Club has also allowed direct contractor access to the software so that they can view and update their work orders, have full access to maintenance histories, asset details and any other related work orders or assets that they may need to be aware of. This is a little used part of the existing software, however, the Club’s facilities managers have made good use of this functionality. The customisable reporting capabilities of CAFM Explorer have allowed senior management to see productivity and savings achieved through better use of the resources available.

Corps Security with the Commonwealth Games

Corps Security with the Commonwealth Games
Drawing on 11 days of world-class sporting action during 23 July-3 August 2014, the Commonwealth Games was an international, multisport event involving 71 teams of athletes from the Commonwealth. Featuring 17 sports, there were 261 different medal events on show. To complement the sport, Glasgow also played host to a range of cultural and arts based events to suit all tastes. An army of up to 15,000 volunteers gave up their time to ensure things ran smoothly and visitors and spectators got as much enjoyment as possible from the occasion. Corps Security supported The Organising Committee to protect the assets and people at one of the major venues, and at three sporting events during the Games. The operation presented Corps Security’s management with many challenges. Changes in manning levels and new tasks at short notice were managed to ensure the venue, people and global live feeds were secure continually. The priority of the Corps Security team was to ensure the event went without incident and, at all times during the event Corps Security went above, and beyond, to ensure customer satisfaction was obtained. Bert van Horck, head of event services at G2014 said: “I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism displayed and the way that officers carried out their tasks in an effective, efficient and polite manner at all times.”
